  • You've been waiting so long
    Just to take me out
    Looking for a reason

    And now I left all hope on the side of the road
    You won't let me by no matter what I try
    And I got no place inside your fantasy

    They want to take
    My right to be
    They want to take, take, take
    I want release

    Looking out through those eyes
    Everything is black and white
    Nothing's blooming

    And now I left all hope on the side of the road
    You won't let me by no matter what I try
    But only I can choose the way I love and hate

    They want to take
    My right to be
    They want to take, take, take
    I want release

    They want to take
    My right to be Writer/s: Brady Ebert, Brendan Yates, Daniel Fang, Franz Lyons, Pat McCrory
