"Take Control" is the fourth song on Maladroit.



"Take Control" was first recorded by the band in 2001 during the DC Demos, and again at the BBC Sessions a few weeks later. Its original incarnation was a bit more mellow, but became much heavier during the Maladroit sessions. Brian Bell was a fan of the song, and mentioned in interviews that it should have been a single. Like many of the album's songs, Rivers Cuomo double-tracked the crunchy guitar solo.



Leave me now
Show me how

And I won't be ashamed
Of the things we once made
And I won't be comin' back
Round here no more

Lead and try
Tell me why

And I won't let you down
Drag your name all over town
And I won't be comin' back
Round here no more

Yo, everyone
Everyone I know
Take control
