(not sure of the start)
Hey you!
Don't you run
I know you
and the things you've done
Careful what your lips imply
Your eyes will not tell a lie

Listen, don't try to explain
There is no resolution at the end of the day
I know you were not lonely
I know you weren't afraid
The only thing you've proven
Is your lack of self-restraint

Take it away now
With a smile
With the twinkle of an eye
She will fight it when you steal her love for your lust
Take it away
She will hold on, hold on

Hey you!
Don't you hide
Cause I see you
I see the one that you made cry
Careful, choosing what to say
Cause your eyes will betray

You say it was your father
and his violent hand
Or was it your mother
and how she never taught you to be a man?
But if you blame somebody
then it might as well be me
Cause its only your own choices
That define who you'll be

Take it away now
With a smile
With the twinkle of an eye
She will fight it when you steal her love for your lust
Take it away

You told her she was special
And nothing could tear you apart
But when you finally wake up
She will be gone

Take it away now
With a smile
With the twinkle of an eye
She will fight it when you steal her love for your lust
Take it away
She will hold on, then she will let go

    General CommentThis guy is playing with a girl's emotions, most likely because she is attractive and that is all the guy wants fro her. He may also be physically abusive (father and his violent hand). He may try to hide this fact, but his eyes betray his guilt. There is probably something more here, but I have only listened to the song 30 times (no exaggeration, i love this band) and can't make anything else out.
