"Take A Breath" as written by and Aarron/mushok Lewis....
You can take all the things you think I need
All I wear upon my sleeve
All the ways that you perceive
I no longer need it

I know what it means
Black and white
Got what I need
And that's why

You lead me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left, just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test, just take a breath

And me, I just take things as they come
I stick around until it's done
And I'm not your chosen one,
But can you admit

I know what it means
Black and white
Got what I need
And that's why

You lead me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left, just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test, just take a breath

You can take all the things you think I need
All the ways that you

You lead me on the edge of sanity
There's not much left, just take a breath
You paint me out as mediocrity
Put to the test, just take a breath

I know what it means
Black and White!

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that is controlling and one of the people in that specific relationship breaks free and says this is my life not yours.

    General CommentFor one, these lyrics are incorrect. He says "God wanted me" not "got what I need." I think he's speaking to the Illuminati elites of the world (but in his case Hollywood).

    You can take all the things you think I need (fame, fortune)
    All I wear upon my sleeve (his emotions that he writes to make his music)
    All the ways that you perceive (the way the elites see the world...all about sin)
    I no longer need it (he wants out of the 'selling your soul' contract)

    I know what it means
    Black and white (black and white is big amongst the Illuminati. It represents good and evil where evil is good and good is evil)
    God wanted me (god wants his soul)
    And that's why 

    You lead me on the edge of sanity (by sabotaging his career because he doesn't want to sell his soul, or he wants out)
    There's not much left, just take a breath (I think he's speaking to himself in this line)
    You paint me out as mediocrity (they make his talent look mediocre in the media)
    Put to the test, just take a breath (again, talking to himself)

    And me, I just take things as they come (he I think did sell his soul thinking it was the right thing to do at first)
    I stick around until it's done (he paid his dues)
    And I'm not your chosen one, (he's not who they want him to be...listen to country boy)
    But can you admit it...(they want his soul)

    I know what it means
    Black and white
    God wanted me
    And that's why 

    You lead me on the edge of sanity
    There's not much left, just take a breath
    You paint me out as mediocrity
    Put to the test, just take a breath

    You can take all the things you think I need
    All the ways that you 

    You lead me on the edge of sanity
    There's not much left, just take a breath
    You paint me out as mediocrity 
    Put to the test, just take a breath

    I know what it means
    Black and White!

    I stand firm by my beliefs.
