"Take Me Alive" as written by and Timothy Z./harmon Mosley....
I tried and tried to walk away
To be the bigger man and leave
You made it hard for me, for me
Its been a long lonely road
I didn't know which way to go
You made my blood run cold
And filled me up with sorrow

There's no where for me to go
I'm a long way away from home
I wont go without a fight
You'll never take me alive

You'll never take me alive oh no you wont
Ever take me alive oh no you wont
Take me alive oh no you wont
Ever take me alive oh no you wont

I tried and tried to shed your skin
But you've controlled me from within
Your love has been a sin
I wont forget tomorrow

There's no where for me to go
I'm a long way away from home
I wont go without a fight
You'll never take me alive

In the fire inside the circle
lonely treats today

You'll never take me alive oh no you wont
(in the fire inside the circle)
Ever take me alive oh no you wont
(lonely treats today)
Take me alive oh no you wont
(in the fire inside the circle)
Ever take me alive oh no you wont
(lonely treats today)

In the fire inside

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites off of this album. Most of the songs on this album are about love or being in a relationship. Obviously this is about the end of one. One of them not being able to let go of it and trying to drag it on.

    It's a strange CD, I can't explain to anyone why I like the music, I just do... Definitely not what I was expecting after listening to him since the early days of Soundgarden.
