"Take Back" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
You pushed me once too far again
I'd like to break you fucking teeth.
Stick a knife in the center of your back.
You better grow some eyes in the back of your
Head. I fight dirty, just like your looks.
Can't take, can't take, can't take anymore.
Take back, take back, take.
The taste of bad blood on the tip of my tongue.
An eye for an eye. Gun for a gun.
Cold-cocked and I'm taking back what's mine.
Expect it when you're least expecting it.
No loss of love, the smell of regret.
Lights out
Can't take anymore

    General Commentthis song scared me the first time i heard it. i had to check to make sure it was still the Green Day CD playing. but then I got used to it. i love how the next song is "king for a day." really lightens up the mood. oh, and the song is about wanting to kill someone. nimrod is an angry album.

    Green Day Forever!

    General CommentIt's about pure, blinding rage you feel toward another person. Now who hasn't felt that?
