"Total Control" as written by and Mccullough....
Looking counter clockwise
Knowing what could happen
Any moment maybe you maybe even you

Steadfast collapse
Always certain any moment
Maybe you maybe you
Maybe even you
Recline complete dream too sweet
I can't do it not with you
Not even with you
Maybe never with you

And I'd sell my soul for
Total control
Yeah I'd sell my soul for
Total control

Street wet tonight, lovers touch
It's pure delight
Always certain any moment
Maybe even you
Stay in bed stained sheets
My head hurts I repeat
Maybe you maybe you maybe even you

And I'd sell my soul for
Total control
Yeah I'd sell my soul for
Total control
Oh I'd sell my soul for
Total control over you
Over you
Total control over you

    Song MeaningMotel's singer Martha Davis mentions in a few interviews that she wrote this as an angry punk song after guitarist Dean Chamberlain broke her heart. Then Jeff Jourard changed it from an aggro song to what it became with this chord progression.

    Of course we can all relate to this feeling after a bad breakup:

    And I'd sell my soul for
    Total control
    Yeah I'd sell my soul for
    Total control
    Oh I'd sell my soul for
    Total control over you
    Over you
    Total control over you
