"For the taking" in lyrics

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo

The soul's escaping through this hole that it's gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a new world order
A normal life is boring but superstardom's close to post mortem

Eminem - Lose Υourself

Just met a boy, just met a boy when
He could come inside of my pay end
'cause he look like a superstar in the making
So I think that I'm going in for the taking
Hear the grape vine that he caking
W-w-we could shoot a movie, he could do the taping

Nicki Minaj - Va Va Voom

I will break these chains that bind me, happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me, today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting it's mine for the taking
I know I can make it, today my life begins
Today my life begins...

My love is
Just waiting

Skillet - Whispers in the dark

Are you scared that you'll never wake up?
Will they make you punch in, when you're there in the morning
and punch you when they've had enough?

You can run and you leave this behind
They'll tell you it's a trap, and they caught you in the act

if there was a limb to be cut off and sold.. it'd be sold in a second

Big Ali - Distress (Sending out an SOS)

118-130I, the king, am the Land's most excellent fighter against the enemy. I, Culgi, am respected for my immense bodily strength. I am mighty; nothing resists me; I know no setbacks. My barges on the river do not sink (?) under me (alludes to a proverb (?)) ; my teams of asses do not collapse under me. Striding forward like my brother and friend, the youth Utu, as if with the legs of a lion, I am the good groom of my dust-making asses that bray like lions roaring. Like that of a stallion, my strength is unwavering during the running-race; I come first in the race, and my knees do not get tired. I am fearless; I dance with joy. My words shall never be forgotten. Praise for me because of my reliable judgments is on everyone's lips.

131-149I am a ritually pure interpreter of omens. I am the very Nintud (creator deity) of the collections of omens. These words of the gods are of pre-eminent value for the exact performance of hand-washing and purification rites, for eulogy of the en priestess or for her enthronement in the jipar, for the choosing of the lumah and nindijir priests by sacred extispicy, for attacking the south or for defeating the uplands, for the opening of the emblem house, for the washing of lances in the "water of battle" (blood) , for the taking of subtle decisions about the rebel lands. After I have determined a sound omen through extispicy from a white lamb and a sheep, water and flour are libated at the place of invocation. Then, as I prepare the sheep with words of prayer, my diviner watches in amazement like an idiot. The prepared sheep is placed at my disposal, and I never confuse a favourable sign with an unfavourable one. I myself have a clear intuition, and I judge by my own eyes. In the insides of just one sheep I, the king, can find the indications for everything and everywhere.

150-153Let me boast of what I have done. The fame of my power is spread far and wide. My wisdom is full of subtlety. Do not my achievements surpass all qualifications?

I'm a refugee

Skip Marley - Refugee

A lot of time has passed while I waited for you to come back, I got tired of thinking and my heart aches for you.
If she is not coming back why would she cross paths with me in the first place, she should have stayed away and the distance would be enough to make me forget.
I will forget her even If my life depends on her, I will never miss her, I will forget her even if my life depends on her and she shall never see me again.
My soul was hers for the taking as I lived a dream of us together, in the end It meant nothing to her, she was just a player.
Suddenly she just left saying that she has had enough.
Just go away, I will be okay, you are not welcomed here by my side.
