"Take It There" as written by and Robert Del Naja Euan Dickinson....
Lots to lose where users use
Skinny don't fuss it kills place
Rub it down again where the pain still sticks on the grey licks
Sticking out your tongue it's a hot red crack suck it in

Out there, it's heavy though
I play my voice, yeah, it's slim
I need a fix, you call the tricks
I'm the man, to hear the tune
We collide, I concentrate
She's with me, we share the pain
Treat the girl like licorice
She's so soft and ticklish

Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, you'll lose you mind

Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, you'll lose you mind

My coordinates it could be any voice cracks (Lots to lose where users use)
Slipped down your footsteps all my boys roll my slip jobs wet (Lots to lose where users use)
Slip job and insurgency make the world safe for you and me

Got simple plans for special ways
Got push to get for lonely days
Needs are met, trees are bloom
I'm the one to hear the tune
I meet you there, meet you soon
I meet you there, give you breath
Take you there

Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, you'll lose you mind

Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, and take your time
Take you there, you'll lose you mind

    My OpinionHmmm. I'm a huge fan of this site and I love lurking and contributing where I can...

    But

    I submitted theses lyrics, and I'm disappointed to see that my submission has been replaced with a verbatim copy of the lyrics on Musixmatch/LyricFind, which (as I hear them) are inaccurate.

    I understand lyrics are © and laws trump everything, but what I hear differs from what appears above. I submitted my interpretation of the lyrics.

    I use Spotify, so I don't get liner notes. Maybe the official™ lyrics are out there and I just don't know about them? (I know Spotify is integrated with Musixmatch -- but Musixmatch takes submissions from its community, which I am also a part of, and are also often inaccurate. To boot, their integration has been down for weeks now).

    I listened to this track dozens of times on headphones with the volume cranked and EQ doing its best to isolate the vocals, while typing out the verses. While I can't decipher everything (3D and Tricky singing over each other for example), I feel inclined to post my original submission below for community consideration.

    This may seem trite - and it's absolutely nothing against the mods (I believe I'm following all submission guidelines, if not please PM me) - I'm really just trying to contribute to the site, and (maybe) get some help deciphering the FULL lyrics (3D and Tricky singing together mostly) -- and to read what others have to say about this amazing track.

    Folks, if you can help fill the gaps, please do -- that's what it's all about :) I'm super-jazzed about this EP and their hopefully-inevitable forthcoming album, especially if Tricky is on more tracks. Been listening to Massive Attack since '91 and their music has been a tremendous influence and 'pseudo-soundtrack' to my life.
