How Much Can I Take

(2002)

Perhaps you know not what you do...

When you fear the pedestal you think I put you upon

Afraid of the image I created In the likeness of God

Scared to crush a heart Since you need what it gives

Still you push me away So the cycle can live

Perhaps you know not what you do

As we get closer and you get farther and we go back and forth on this roller coaster ride

that is born from the fight we put on to deny it

Perhaps you know not what you do

So I pray to God that you have the strength to see your own wings

and use them to uplift and free yourself from that antagonistic feeling

that tells you that you aint worth the show you stage

for all the folks who could never see beyond your rage

Perhaps you know not what you do

So you tear yourself down to test me and gauge how sincere are my ways and just how much

can I take of you at your worst when you curse me with the spell of your submission and retraction

Perhaps you know not what you do

Despite your wisdom
