The Used Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's our time to shine through the down
Glorified by what is ours
Fallen in love fallen in love!
Was the best idea I ever had

Today I fell and felt better
Just knowing this matters
I just feel stronger and sharper
Found a box of sharp objects what a beautiful thing

Today I fell and felt better
Just knowing this matters
I just feel stronger and sharper
Found a box of sharp objects what a beautiful thing

Today I fell and felt better
Just knowing this matters
I just feel stronger and sharper
Found a box of sharp objects what a beautiful thing

So you want a song of glory
Well I'm fucking screaming at you





C'mon motherfuckers

37 years old. I've heard a LOT of music and this band is still in my top 3. Beautiful.

@Bl4ck0r4ng3

Who are the other 2???

@emmismom8347

@@Bl4ck0r4ng3 I think MCR and Lana Del Rey. They're probably the artists with the most good songs in my opinion. And their songs seem to hold up over time. Who are yours?

@kevinmccormick3115

Hell yeah I'm 30 and this band is a staple

@DarceyRecords

We all have an Era of music that we gravitate towards, that speaks to us. No matter how much music I listen to, nothing will ever replace how important early 2000's post-hardcore, emo, and metalcore is to me. Sometimes nostalgia is painful.

@paratext

What's unbelievable is no one will ever know how much different the world (and even the internet) really was back then. You truly "had to be there." It all feels like a dream now.

@BrokedDownPalace

I remember reading a study like 15 years ago about how the mind tends to imprint music the most from some age until like 24. It really does seem to be true for the most part. There's so much music i listened to back in the day which is objectively horrible looking back on it, but the nostalgia factor still makes it sound great
edit may have been 20 i don't remember
