11. Take It All Away

Innocence & Instinct (Deluxe Edition)
by Red



 

You've stripped me down, the layers fall like rain
It's over now, just innocence and instinct still remain
You watched me while I slowly disappeared
I reached for you to save me, you were frozen in your fear

Take it all away, Take it all away
Take it all away, Take it all away

Circling the pain inside my soul
I reached inside Your silence to steal what You won't show
I try to find the answers in my fears
But what was found is lost again as soon as it appears

I'm breaking, I can't do this on my own
Can You hear me screaming out?
Am I all alone?

You take away
You take away


Words & Music by Jasen Rauch and Rob Graves

Behind the Song:
“Take It All Away,” which concludes the “Standard Edition” of the album, is inspired by a tumultuous time in songwriter-guitarist Jasen Rauch’s life. The song is a haunting acoustic prayer set against midnight’s long shadow. “It’s very dark, uncomfortable and unresolved, and the production stays congruent with these unresolved feelings,” explains Rauch. “There’s an eerie effect in the verse where three or four voices sing the same thing, but each comes from a different place. There’s a frail melody that carries the actual verse and another that is whispered a beat behind it with a lost, tormented voice. It’s about finding yourself in a dark place you never thought you’d be in. For me, it was a really crippling time.”
