"Take Me or Leave" as written by and Nathan Leone Dan Torelli....
My life had always been a game, I never learned how to play
Hid from it every day
Because I’ve seen some horrible things
And thanks to memory
I doubt they’ll ever leave
And all my friends are like chameleons
They’re into shape-shifting and I don’t trust anything
I blame the jealousy, the insecurity
But that is such a waste
As of today all that shit changes

I don’t care anymore
If it’s okay with you, I’ll be the judge of me
And you can just peace
I don’t care anymore
I’ll watch some porno girl
I’ll take a pill or two if I wanna chill

I’m gonna pour another vodka drink
And I don’t care what you think
Everyone’s on something
And you can find mister popular, but crack him open girl
And you’ll find something wrong
If I could cure insecurity
How fucking rich would I be?
I’d sell it all to you and then you’d leave

But I don’t care anymore
If it’s okay with you, I’ll be the judge of me
And you can just peace
I don’t care anymore
I’ll watch some porno girl
I’ll take a pill or two if I wanna chill

Sometimes I feel as if my walls are closing in
Maybe I’m just paranoid or am I focused in

I don’t care anymore
If it’s okay with you, I’ll be the judge of me
And you can just peace
I don’t care anymore
And tell your companions
Congratulations they lost me, I win

    General CommentI know they said this song is about being happy with yourself and how you are, but to me this song just drips of apathy.

    the music sounds very light-headed and chill. what i personally get out of the song is: i do my thing, the world does its own thing, and thats ok.

    it says negative things that he does and thinks and experiences ("my life had always been a game, i never learned how to play" "sometimes i feel as if my walls are closing in" "i blame the jealousy, the insecurity"), then balances it out or contrasts it with negative things that everyone else does ("you can find mister popular...and youll find something wrong" "all my friends are like chameleons" "ill be the judge of me or you can just peace") or positive things he thinks to deal with it ("as of today all that shit changes" "i dont care anymore"). and that equals apathy.

    where i see the most apathy is in the parts: "i dont care anymore", "ill take a pill or two if i wanna chill" "im gonna pour another vodka drink and i dont care what you think, everyones on something" which to me is saying hes getting drunk, but everyone else does crap too so why does it matter?

    thats my opinion, i dont know if anyone else would see it this way, but i think we can all agree that this song is amazing.
