Post Malone – Take What You Want lyrics
(feat. Ozzy Osbourne & Travis Scott)

[Intro: Post Malone]
Oh

[Chorus: Ozzy Osbourne]
I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone
You bled me dry just like the tears you never show
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go

[Verse 1: Post Malone]
I never needed anything from you
And all I ever asked was for the truth (All I ever asked was for)
You showed your tongue and it was forked in two
Your venom was lethal, I almost believed you (Almost believed you)
Yeah, you preyed on my every mistake
Waited on me to break, held me under hopin' I would drown
Like a plague, I was wasting away
Tryna find my way out, find my way out

[Pre-Chorus 1: Post Malone]
And it finally came the day
I start giving my heart away
For Heaven's sake, my bones will break
But you never own my soul, no

[Chorus: Post Malone]
I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone
You bled me dry just like the tears you never show
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go

[Verse 2: Travis Scott]
I took them stones you threw, made chains for the crew (Ice)
I brought up 10 hoes, this coupe only made for two (Yeah)
They all ran through it, it ain't nothing left to do
I need some more reasons to live out this evening (Straight up)
I've been sippin' forever and just taking whatever
Hoping, thinking whenever you'll be back around
Let's go our ways, whichever
You say how is however long
'Cause you know I never be alone

[Pre-Chorus 2: Travis Scott]
Love (Love)
Shorty gon' back (Shorty gon' back)
Need it on sight (Need it on sight)
Crack it all back (Crack it all back)
Give her that pipe (Give her that pipe)
All of my cash (All of my cash)
Shawty went bad (Shawty went bad)

[Chorus: Ozzy Osbourne]
I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone
You bled me dry just like the tears you never show
Why don't you take what you want from me
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go
Why don't you take what you want from me
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go

[Outro: Post Malone]
Take it all away
Why don't you (Take what you want, take what you need)
Take what you need from me, yeah
(Take what you want) Why don't you (Take what you need)
(What you need, yeah)

    “Take What You Want” is a song in which the artists are addressing particular romantic interests who are depicted as being callous towards their feelings. It is therefore safe to say that the lyrics are directed towards lovers who have apparently done them wrong. Malone comes off as being really caught up in a toxic relationship. He had fallen for someone who is not only untruthful but also “preyed on every mistake”. By this he is insinuating that she was consistently verbally abusive towards him. Indeed she is portrayed as one of those types who would rather see her lover fail than succeed. And she conducted herself accordingly. This romance has been so detrimental to Posty’s development that he describes himself as “wasting away”, as in slowly dying. This expression would likely point more to his emotional disposition than a physical state. Putting it simply, this lady has a habit of weakening his morale and self-esteem. And whereas he is now ‘trying to find his way out’ of the situation, it is clear that, at least for the moment, this is something which Malone is compelled to endure. That is to say that this romantic experience reads like a classic case of someone who is deeply in love with an abusive partner. Meanwhile the woman Travis Scott describes has similar attributes due to her tendency to ‘throw stones’, as in launch criticisms, at him. But he handled the situation a bit differently, insinuating that he took her negativity and instead transformed it into something positive. But his main gripe against this lady appears to be her overly-promiscuous ways. The way Scott’s words read, particularly in his pre-chorus, it is as if he is trying to say that a few of his buddies slept with this woman also. But in all honesty he doesn’t appear as if he was overly-committed to her sensually either. Meanwhile the chorus itself, which is held down by Ozzy Osbourne, paints the artists more or less as victims of the wiles of the aforementioned ladies. Indeed the titular expression, “take what you want”, alludes to their perceived powerlessness under the given circumstances. And it is also meant to be a sarcastic sentiment. The vocalists are basically letting these women know that they are well aware of the abuse they suffer at their hands. Yet the general insinuation is that their feelings for these individuals are too strong for them to simply walk away. Or put another way, this song is based on the artists being emotionally-attached to romantic partners who abuse their trust and affections.
