Amy's description of the song: "Terry uses a lot of delay and noises. His guitar playing is really creepy! He also uses a lot of half-step two chords, which I love. I felt like I wasn't really allowed to use stuff like that before, because Ben didn't like it. But songs like "Lose Control" go from C to a C sharp, back and forth. I love those. It's that Portishead influence." [http://www.vh1.com/news/articles/1540914/story.jhtml VH1.com]
 
 
Described by Amy (off a VH1 article) - "'You don't remember my name, I don't really care.' The anger's in the music.

Lyrics

You don't remember my name
I don't really care
Can we play the game your way?
Can I really lose control?

Just once in my life
I think it'd be nice
Just to lose control- just once
With all the pretty flowers in the dust

Mary had a lamb
His eyes black as coals
If we play very quiet, my lamb
Mary never has to know

Just once in my life
I think it'd be nice
Just to lose control- just once

If I cut you down to a thing I can use
I fear there will be nothing good left of you

(Just to lose control - just once)
