"Take" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
Take, take what you want,
Take it all, I know you want my soul
And feel, what you want me to feel
But I will only conceal just a little more
From you
You're all alone, you're all alone
And you draggin everyone in
All alone and you don't even understand
Don't even understand

So I'll obey, listen to what you say
'cause you are in full control now
But you're so scared, so scared of losing it all somehow
You're all alone, you're all alone
And you draggin everyone in
All alone and you don't even understand
Don't even understand

See if you don't got the time to show just a little respect
You won't get any in return
And if you don't got time to have an open ear
You won't have anything to learn

Don't know why you don't even understand
Don't know why you don't even understand
Don't know why you don't even understand

    General CommentI may have some of these words wrong, I could only get them by listening to the song. So if I have stuffed up, don't abuse me just tell me and I'll fix them.

    General CommentPretty good job with the lyrics, Punk. Only 1 mistake (i think, their might be more), "and if you don't got time
    to have it open, you won't have anything to learn", it goes "and if you don't got the time
    to have an open ear, you won't have anything to learn"
