"Take It" as written by and Michael J. Mushok....
I feel like this won't go away
No matter how hard I try to
Squeeze my eyes shut
So I can't see the pain in you
This pain in me, in me

Everything that I can say to you
Won't help you
Everything you need is right in front of you
Just take it

I know that I am really not here
To represent what I am not clear
About in my head
Sometimes I feel fucked up just like you do, like you do

But everything that I can say to you
Won't help you
Everything you need is right in front of you
Just take it

Try to make it through the daily pain that you feel
Maybe tomorrow won't be so bad, I know it

'Cause I once felt that way
Nothing I could say
Made it go away
I lived through this, I still feel this
I just live for my tomorrow

Just make it go away
Just make it go away
She'll make it go away
She'll make it go away

    General CommentI think there is a reason this song is right after 'Waste' on the 'Break The Cycle' album. Look at those lyrics if you don't know what I mean.

    General CommentThis song is Aaron telling all his fans to not give up and not to bring themselves down or let him bring them down but to live your life. You've got everything you need, just take it. Seize the day, take control of your life, keep going, don't give up.

    He's looking around and seeing how fucked up everyone is and everyone's depressed and feels all this pain and he's sad cuz he can't stop it or help it but he wants to and it's really up to you. And he's saying that he feels that way to and he knows how hard it is and that sometimes all you can do is just hang on... Hold on till tomorrow, things will get better just keep trying, never give up.

    General Commenti think that its basically aaron saying "if you can relate to this song, ive been in your shoes and dont go kill yourself cause it will pass and just take what you have no matter how little it is and continue on"

    General Commenti agree with both but i think hes also talking about himself and the one he confides in - she makes it go away- kick ass song

    General CommentCarpe Diem

    Today may feel like suicide but it if you're tough enough, you can just Take It and feel completely different tomorrow. Everything comes with a sacrifice.

    General CommentHe's saying he's just like us, we're just like him. When things are not so good we have to take the chances we get ('take it') and 'live for our tomorrow' and that's how he got where he is. everybody can be where he is.

    and don't give up.
