Toma guey

Stole my patience, stole my pride
Snatched the rhythm from my stride
Kicked my certainty up the middle
Knocked the wind out of my romantic side

Hopes and wishes set aflame
What's your purpose here, whatcha hope to gain?
Took my dignity, you took my dignity
Burned a lover so earned an enemy.

Time to make it right, that's how it's gonna be.
Watch you pay the toll right in front of me
Time to pay your dues, time to set you straight
Take what you dish out. Toma guey.

Hopes and wishes set aflame
What's your purpose here, whatcha hope to gain?
Took my dignity, you took my dignity
Lost a lover and earned an enemy.

Time to make it right, that's how it's gonna be.
Watch you pay the toll right in front of me
Time to pay your dues, time to set you straight
Take what you dish out. Toma guey.

    This isn't correct - it's not "toma away" it's "toma guey" which basically means "take that jerk" in Spanish slang. Source: www.puscifer.com

    Seems like some one was treating him poorly and he got fed up and sent them on their way, but its more of sense of overcoming an abusive relationship. Maybe its primarily directed toward someone that speaks spanish.

    I'm hesitant to post lyrics changes in case there's an official booklet or something. That said, i'm fairly sure that it's "pay the toll/right in front of me", and "toma guey" rather than "toma away". Toma guey being fairly common (spanish) slang and making a lot more sense... An insult to the song's subject is more in character than telling them to 'take it away'.

    Someone look into this, maybe?

    "for instance, in overboard we hear a rather humorous mockery being made about those who think 2012 will be a biblical flood. "

    What is your proof for this? There's nothing in the lyrics other than mentions of a sailing vessel, the fact that there are women and children on board with the sailors, and that a mythical greek god is going to hit them with an incredible storm.

    Given the rest of your comment, you sound like someone that can see an agenda everywhere and read what you want into just about anything. People like you tend to be very susceptible to hypnotic suggestion.
