wash away the color
from forests green
disturb the peace
from valleys serene
blind curious eyes
so they cannot see
you take it away
just take away…

you silence melodies
from singing birds
layer disgust
on beautiful words
strip voices away
pleading to be heard
you take it away
just take away…

you break the ties
that bind us all
break to watch
the pieces fall
wake to kill
a brand new day
you take it away
just take away…


tears call for solace
from indifferent seas
your cruel waves drown
desperate pleas
they flow and ebb
with pain that bleeds


you tear apart hope
with your selfish schemes
upon the virtue
of man you feed
a demon’s frigid ice
through your heart streams
you take it away
just take away

you break the ties
that bind us all
break to watch
the pieces fall
wake to kill
a brand new day
you take it away
just take away

Lyrics-R-Us
Tina,
Yes, they are. Having penned literally hundreds of lyrics over the past thirty-six years..I know how you feel. It's like you have a song in your head..and you free it..

my take on take away
I keep wanting to slide in an 'it' in the last line of the refrain and here's why ..

In England

take away = take out .. as in fast food to go .. ya know? So here I am putting an 'it' in so I'm happier. Love the rest of this. Really flows beautifully.
