Takin' It Back Lyrics

When they found you, you were driven and hungry
You were playin' for your life then
You were livin' for the chance to be heard

What they promised, what they offered
Was more than you'd ever hoped for
To walk away, ya' know that would've been absurd

And talk about absurdity, it was madness
It was everything in excess
It was too much, too many and too little time

It was faceless people in jackets and ties
Who thought of you when they made love to their wives
Somehow, it wasn't what you had in mind

Tell 'em you're takin' it back
So they might as well get used to the idea
You're takin' it back
Those cooperating days are over

You got no one to blame but yourself
So don't put it on nobody else
Put it behind you, start over, today

There were parties and photos
And televised award shows
And covers of magazines

There was gold and platinum
And everyone was smiling
You were coming apart at the seems

There were jerk offs
Too numerous to mention
When everybody shared the dream

But when it came time
To share the nightmare
They were conveniently nowhere to be seen

Tell 'em you're takin' it back
So they might as well get used to the idea
You're takin' it back
Those cooperating days are over

You got no one to blame but yourself
So don't put it on nobody else
Put it behind you, start over, today

Oh, they'll argue what they gave you
Was exactly what you wanted
And just to be fair, you know that some of it's true

That's why ya' gotta be careful, 'bout your wishes
Take your time and think 'em over
Sometimes those wishes just might come true

Tell 'em you're takin' it back
So they might as well get used to the idea
You're takin' it back
Those cooperating days are over

Tell 'em you've had enough
And if they don't like it, it's tough
You're takin' it back
Those cooperating days are over

You're takin' it back
Tell 'em you're takin' it back
