Take - Official Lyrics



Take

Key signature - A Phrygian

Time signature - 3/4

Tempo - 98 bpm


Help us to help the others to help us all

Tell us to tell the others to tell you no

Take your time

I’ll take mine

Help us to help the others to help us all

Tell us to tell the others to tell you no

Take all the things that I need you take control

Harmless? No, not that harmless now after all

Take your time

I’ll take mine

And take these dreams

A part of me

Over, and over, and down the rabbit hole

Over, and over we fight to gain control

Take violence

Take silence

Take saving little motes

Untie us

Unbind us

Time to let us go

Help us to help the others to help us all

Tell us to tell the others to tell you no

Take all the things that I need you take control

Harmless? No, not that harmless now after all

Take your time

I’ll take mine

And take these dreams

A part of me

And take these eyes

I’ll see stars shine

So, take your time

Cuz I’ll be fine


Rage

Key signature - D minor

Time signature - 6/4

Tempo - 150 bpm


It’s not like you, or like me

It’s time that I want, time I can’t see

Let it all go

Let it all out

Taking a toll

Tearing me down

Alone and I rage

Rage

At least I know

At least I tried

It’s all that I want

Time without scars

Time I can’t find

Buried beneath, covered in leaves, and decaying trees, and soil, and life wait seeds seeking the sun and seeking the rain, but I don’t know why when I’m alone that I rage

Alone and I rage

Take, take flight (x2)

Soar above and I take, take flight

Fly away, fly away now

Reach out skyward

Bloom and unearth and unfurl now

Follow these ways I've never found

And I rage

Alone and I rage

Alone and I rage

Alone, alone and I rage


Disintegrated

Key signature - A minor

Time signature - 4/4

Tempo - 120 bpm


You’re lying and thinking you’re broken and failing

It’s not like you’re alone

To be alive is to feel doomed

You know I’ll still love you no matter what you’re going through

This poison is killing me, it’s killing you so thoroughly

You’re so strong

You’re so bright

No matter what I am by your side

Come on now, escape this

Disintegrated

Forever isn’t long enough

But we’re all just stardust

So, part of you is part of me, is part of them and all we see

You know that I’ll always love you even after all we’ve been through

This poison is killing me, it’s killing you so thoroughly

You’re so strong

You’re so bright

No matter what I’ll be by your side

Come on now, escape this

Disintegrated

You see the starlight

It defines you

It confines you

So finite

Beaten down by these waves that bind you

Shackles and chains of mass confusion

I hope that you still love me

After all, I just couldn’t agree

The poison that’s killing me is killing you so thoroughly

You’re so strong

You’re so bright

No matter what I’ll be by your side

Come on now, escape this

Disintegrated
