"Take Me To The Top" as written by and Nikki Sixx....
Don't you know know know
It's a violation
I still hear you saying
Such a perfect perfect night
No no no fight all temptation
Well in a black heartened alley fight
I'm screaming
Take me to the heights tonight
Take me to the top

Take me to the top...(repeat)
Too many times
Victim accusation
No you don't have to take it like that
A sheer sheer heart attack
No no no it's no realization
I never had a way with you
But I still hear you saying
Take me to the top

Take me to the top...(repeat)
Take me to the top
To the top and throw me off...(repeat)

Take me to the top

    General CommentPersonally I think it's the narrator fighting inner demons, didn't really get it until I figured out what Sixx and Mick were singing in the last chorus (I thought something along "Take me to the top and blow me up" or something no "throw me off")

    I think the narrator feels like his demons are trying to off him, telling him tonight's a perfect night to kill yourself but the narrator keeps telling them no and fighting them in a "a black hearted alley fight" but there's still something in him that screams take me to the top of the building and jump off.

    After going through this album song by song, line by line I think Sixx was a big fan of the whole put really dark lyrics over what sounds like more upbeat music, add a poppy vocal melody and catchy chorus so it doesn't sound depressing. Van Halen did the same thing with Jump, but that synth in a minor scale and slow it down and it's the most depressing suicide song ever.

    Most of these lyrics are pretty deep, not what I've been expecting. They first sound fun and rockin when you hear them. They come off as dark and, well, evil when you read them (Live Wire sounds like it promotes rape for fuck's sake!) but then there's a little line or something that gets it to one more level that just makes you realize how brilliant Nikki was of a songwriter, even back in '81!
