Take

Take a moment, Take a moment
Take a moment by the hand, by the hand
Dive out of yourself
Look around at your waters.
Learn to feed the whiteness of your sand
On the bottom
At the base
At the source
of that sad, sad, sad, sad expression on your face

Because sometimes in this precious world
The moments race by, you’ve got to look each in the eye
Sometimes in this precious world
There’s no time to contemplate
just empty everyday…
Self-hate

Your eyes are dim and strange
Your eyes are dim and strange, oh
I ask you why
I ask you why — “Why?”
But, you’ll just look at me and say
“Don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine.”
You’ll shrug your bony shoulders and you’ll slouch
You are leaning on doubts
Just getting by

Sometimes in this precious world
The moments race by, you’ve got to look each in the eye
Sometimes in this precious world
There’s no time to contemplate
just empty everyday…
You are feeling Self-hate

It doesn’t have to be this way
It just can’t be this way
It doesn’t have to be this way..
Slip a moment out of time
Change the sequence, kill the rhyme
Slip a moment out of time, slip a moment out of time
Find what’s good, what’s right for you
And take it, take it, take it, take it
Take it TAKE IT TAKE IT TAKE

Take a moment, Take a moment
Take a moment by the hand, by the hand
Dive out of yourself
Look around, Look around at your, your waters.
Learn to feed the whiteness of your sand
on the bottom,
at the base
at the source
of that sad, sad, sad, sad expression on your face

Sometimes in this not so precious world
The moments race by, you’ve got to look each in the eye
Sometimes in this not so precious world
Those moments race by, yeah yeah
Sometimes in this not so precious world
There’s no time to contemplate
just empty everyday…
We don’t have to take Self-hate
We don’t have to take it
We don’t have to take it take it take it take it take it take it
We don’t have to take Self-hate
We don’t have to take
We don’t have to take Self-hate
Self-hate

Nothing Budges
Show Up Outside
