Analysis of Control Will Take a Soul

Control, control, more control,
Long enough to take my soul,
A hateful heart gone bad,
Over the edge, never to be restored.

Don't be one who takes sides,
Hate has shattered my world,
Threads connecting have gone slack,
Happiness is to not look back.

Control killed my love,
Once delicate and sweet,
No more stifling of my life,
Chrushed beneath one's feet.
