Lyrics
You pushed me once too far again
I'd like to break your fucking teeth
Stick a knife in the center of your back
You better grow some eyes in the back of your head
I fight dirty, just like your looks
Can't take, can't take, can't take anymore

Take back, take back, take

The taste of bad blood on the tip of my tongue
An eye for an eye
Gun for a gun
Cold-cocked and I'm taking back what's mine
Expect it when you're least expecting it
No loss of love, the smell of regret
Lights out can't take anymore

Take back, take back, take back, take back

Shit
Song Meaning
Yet another example of this album's musical diversity, this track is styled like a death-metal, screamo song. The narrator viciously attacks someone who "pushed him once too far again." He has taken harsh treatment from this person in the past, but now can't bear any more of it. The narrator vows to violently take back his dignity, no matter what he must do.
