"Control" as written by Wesley Scantlin and Brad Michael Stewart....
I love the way you look at me
I feel the pain you place inside
You lock me up inside your dirty cage
Well I'm alone inside my mind

I'd like to teach you all the rules
I'd get to see them set in stone
I like it when you chain me to the bed
But then your secrets never shone

I need to feel you, you need to feel me
I can't control you, you're not the one for me, no

I can't control you, you can't control me
I need to feel you, so why's there even you and me?

I love the way you rake my skin
I feel the hate you place inside
I need to get your voice out of my head
Cause I'm that guy you'll never find

I think you know all of the rules
There's no expressions on your face
I'm hope that some day you will let me go
Release me from my dirty cage

I need to feel you, you need to feel me
I can't control you, you're not the one for me, no

I can't control you, you can't control me
I need to feel you, so why's there even you and me?

I love the way you look at me
I love the way you smack my ass
I love the dirty things you do
I have control of you

I love the way you look at me
I love the way you smack my ass
I love the dirty things you do
I have control of you

I love the way you look at me
I love the way you smack my ass
I love the dirty things you do
I have control of you

I love the way you look at me
I love the way you smack my ass
I love the dirty things you do
I have control of you

I need to feel you, you need to feel me
I can't control you, you're not the one for me, no

I can't control you, you can't control me
I need to feel you, so why's there even you and me?

You're not the one for me, no
You're not the one for me, no
You're not the one for me, no
You're not the one for me, no

    General Commentto me it sounds like this is actually two people in a "love to hate you" relationship on the skids. kinda deep if you get to thinking about it with a lung full of smoke heh

    General Commentthis song is good if you're in that "i wanna freak you hard and dirty"mood...there are a few lines that do possess some poetic creativity such as "I love the way you rape my skin...I feel the hate you place inside" but basically it's a great song if you feel like jamming like a porn star.

    General CommentI disagree that this song is about love or anything romantic with A WOMAN.. I'm Pretty sure its the love of a needle thats raping the skin. I have heard Shooting heroin is considered "smack" and if he is referring to shooting it in his "ass" that would make sense.. "smack my ass" Thats a lot of talk about "control" for something as simple minded as sex or love. But who knows.. I too, could be wrong.. but it makes too much sense this way.
