"Take Control" as written by and Dwight Farrell....
Leave
Me now
Show
Me how

And I won't
Be ashamed
Of the things
We once made
And I won't be
Comin' back 'round here no more
Yo!

Lead
And try
Tell
Me why

And I won't
Let you down
Drag your name
All over town
And I won't be
Comin' back 'round here no more
Yo!

Yo everyone
Everyone
Everyone I know
(Everyone I know)
Take control

Yeah

And I won't
Let you down
Drag your name
All over town
And I won't be
Comin' back 'round here no more
Yo!

Yo everyone
Everyone
Everyone I know
(Everyone I know)
Take control

Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh

    General Commentthis is one of the best new weezer songs i've heard. i think its basically about getting your life back on track after breaking up, and not worrying too much about what you've left behind, and just moving forward.

    General CommentThe best part is that line in the first verse.

    "And I won't be ashamed
    Of the things we once made
    And I won't be comin'
    Back round here no more... no"

    i love the strength he puts into those words. That things are over, and he won't ever go back, but he will not forget or hide that he once loved her... Oy vey... Rivers is an awesome lyric writer. I would kill to write like that.

    General CommentAnyone ever noticed the similarities between this song and Crab from the green album? To me its like Crab Pt2, like the same story this time looked at from the guys perspective. I dont know maybe im wrong but its something i noticed when i first listened to Take Control.

    General Commenta GREAT weezer song. one of my favorites in Maladroit. it's just so damn awesome and it's one of their best songs. to me, i think Take Control is about letting people take control of your feelings and let them step on you. in the first verses, 'leave me, tell me why' the person (rivers, i think) is trying to say that once they've been stepped on, he wants to know why he was. he gives out his soul to everyone and he gets nothing. so he accepts his strane behavior and says 'everyone, everyone i know - take control'. that what I believe it means. i don't care if people tell me it's wrong, because it's always right to me. Weezer ROCKS!

    General Comment"And I won't let you down
    Drag your name all over town "

    so supportive not to talk shit about his ex. either that or to not bitch about breaking up in general.
