"Self Control" as written by and Jason Sellards Scott D. Hoffman....
Self control
Self control

I can always watch you
Breathing in your sleep
And all I ever wanted was for you to wait for me
It's hard to take it easy
When you're not satisfied
A little death is better with
Somebody at your side

You need to
Self control
Gonna teach you
Self control
Just keep staring at the ceiling
Got to learn to fight the feeling
Don't let go
No no
Of your self control
Self control

Just pretend you're standing
High up on this ledge
Be sure not to look down if you're close to the edge
Tell me are you listening
Stay within my voice
Ain't no rush
Just feel the push
Cause you don't have much choice

You need to
Self control
Gonna teach you
Self control
Just keep staring at the ceiling
Got to learn to fight the feeling
Don't let go
No no
Of your self control
Self control

Who has to know
Who has to know
Who has to know
Who has to know

Who has to know
Who has to know
Who has to know
Who has to know

Gonna teach you
Self control
Gonna teach you
Self control
Just keep staring at the ceiling
Got to learn to fight the feeling
Don't let go
No no
Of your self control
Self control

Self control

    General CommentSeems like this is about a friend or partner who is addicted or thinks about suicide. Or about a partner who is too scared to start a relationship.
    I don't know.

    General CommentI have to disagree with plottoberry - I think they are reading "A little death" as a literal death, but 99.99% sure they are referring to "a little death" in the French use of the phrase: "Le Petite Mort" which is a euphamism for an orgasm.

    This song is about teaching a lover how to delay sexual gratification.

    This whole album is delightfully sexual- and this is just one more example of mixing power and sex. Sure, it is mutually pleasurable to have someone with you when you come, but the real point of the song is the powerplay- the singer is teaching their lover in self control. They have the power over the situation.
