Pieces Mended
The Used Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Being faced with what I'm faced with I feel
Like I can't rock
Like a rock hit my heart
Started to chain the day
And exploded into pieces

Marry me
Stay the same
Lie to me and try to say you never will

I've got a feeling in my gut now fills me
With so much hope
Said fuck it I'm fine




Dine and dashed
The pianist peddled into morning

Being faced with what I'm faced with I feel like I can't rock
Like a rock hit my heart
Started to chain the day and exploded into pieces

[Chorus 1]
Marry me, stay the same
Lie to me and try to say you never will
Marry me, stay the same
Lie to me and try to tell me

[Verse 2]
I've got a feeling in my gut, now fills me with so much hope
Said fuck it, I'm fine, dine and dashed
The pianist peddled into morning, morning

[Chorus 2]
Marry me, stay the same
Lie to me and try to say you never will
Marry me, stay the same
Lie to me and try to say you never

[Bridge 1]
Morning, morning

[Verse 1]
Being faced with what I'm faced with I feel like I can't rock
Like a rock hit my heart
Started to chain the day and exploded into pieces

[Bridge 2]
Pieces (x7)

[Verse 1]
Being faced with what I'm faced with I feel like I can't rock
Like a rock hit my heart
Started to chain the day and exploded into pieces

Being faced with what I'm faced with I feel
Like I can't rock
Like a rock hit my heart
Started to chain the day
And exploded into pieces

With so much hope
Said fuck it I'm fine

Adrian The chosen one To me it sounds like trying to fix something (most likely a relationship) and failing.

To be faced with what I'm faced with I feel
Like I can't rock
A rock in my heart
Started chaining the day, buried into pieces

This could mean that the realization that what they done to fix it means nothing has hit the narrator. This in turn starts a chain reaction that has left them feeling broken, hence why they feel the "rocks chaining the day".

Marry me
Stay the same
Lie to me and try to say you never will

This kind of confused me at first but I think this might be referencing a relationship with another, and the other person is trying to lie their way through it, or that the narrator is talking to themselves​. Basically saying that everything is going to shit but the narrator is trying to deny it.

Got a thing in my fun and it fills me
With so much hope

Most likely referring suicide, with the realization hitting them hard and everything happening so suddenly the narrator can't take it. They plan on killing themselves​ cause it'll be easier on them.

Said fuck it I'm fine
Dined and dashed the pianist peddled in a moment

This line probably means the narrator decided against it and is now fine, however the pianist line still kind of confused me.

Mourning

Really simple, the narrator is mourning over the pieces. Everythings went to shit and they are mourning over it.

The rest of the song is just repeats of previous lines, I know my post is long but I thank you if you take the time to read it all.

This album still hits the same way it did when I was listening to it for the first time at 13. I’m 33 and still screaming the lyrics in public.
