Take It Out On Me Lyrics

I don't know
I don't know
I don't know anymore
Thought I had
Thought I had it under control

Hear my voice, here it goes
Hear it louder than most
Here it goes, here it goes
(1 2 3 4)

It's not worth it
It's not...

    I loved this song without context, but put my own to it, and have listened so much more since.

    I hear this as an intervention. Drugs have been a struggle in my family, and when I think of it that way, I feel it in my core, brings tears just hearing the lyrics in my head.

    To me, it speaks of someone stepping in to help someone they love who is afraid to let go of addiction, doesn't want it to fade...so scream and smash, if it helps you get control, just take it out on me...I'll do anything to help you let it go.

    I personally believe that the song is referring to an individual in a toxic relationship who is trying to hold on to their partner at all costs even if it hurts them or that they have to meet impossible standards.

    I believe it is about a person who wants to commit suicide because his life is going downhill, but their friend/family member is trying to tell them that it’s not worth it, and to take it out on them, instead of killing themself.

    I think its about a relationship that is on the verge of breaking apart with the "its not worth it, its not working, you wanted it to be picture perfect" and the person that has anger inside of them doesn't know how to express it well and the person that they're with is saying "take it out on me" meaning that if it'll help the person thats angry get control or get better then they should take their anger out on them until they're calm enough to talk through whatever is bothering them or if something's not working in the relationship

    This song kind of sounds like a relationship where the person is saying "If you need to get rid of your inner aggression to get better, then take it out on me." so maybe the "me" in the song is God. Saying to all the people to take out their problems and anger and grief out on him and then move on from it.

    This song tells about a friend talking to a person that is giving up and are filled up with anger inside.
    The one singing says that the person shouldn't hold in, but instead should come out with it, so they are ready for new and better times to arrive.
