Maybe Memories
Used - Maybe Memories

As we trudge alone through the mud
And we tried to call it home
But we weren't alright, not at all
Not for one second

Never have been one to write it down
Now I think I can
I know I'm stronger
Who's looking south
Not me I'm looking back
I'm done denying the truth to anyone
Cause I'm alive

You showed me how
You seemed to find a hole
But I just laughed and smiled
Begged and rolled my eyes
Even cried
And denyed the truth to you
Just like the truth to me
Mostly lied

I'm not going to look back

While it out like glittering wax butterfliesback to top
The Taste of Ink
The Used--The Taste of Ink
Submitted by John Kim
Email-jonkim06@AOL.COM



Is it worth it can you even hear me
Standing with your spotlight on me
Not enough to feed the hungry
I'm tired and I felt it for awhile now
In this sea of lonely
The taste of ink is getting old
It's four o' clock in the fucking morning
Each day gets more and more like the last day
Still I can see it coming
While I'm standing in the river drowning
This could be my chance to break out
This could be my chance to say goodbye
At last it's finally over
Couldn't take this town much longer
Being half dead wasn't what I planned to be
Now I'm ready to be free

So here I am it's in my hands
And I'll savor every moment of this
So here I am alive at last
And I'll savor every moment of this

And won't you think I'm pretty
When I'm standing top the bright lit city
And I'll take your hand and pick you up
And keep you there to so you can see
As long as you're alive and care
I promise I will take you there
And we'll drink and dance the night away

As long as you're alive
Here I am
I promise I will take you thereback to top
Bulimic
from the way that you acted to the way that i felt it
it wasn't worth my time
and now it's sad cause all i missed
wasn't that good to begin with
and now i've started you begging saying things that you don't mean
it isn't worth my time
a line's a dime a million times
and i'm about to see all of them

chorus:
goodbye to you, goodbye to you
you're taking up my time [x3]

you call my name when i wake up
to see things go your way
i'm coughing up my time
each drag's a drop of blood a grain
a minute of my life
it's all i've got
just to stay down
why the f*k am i still down?
i'm hoarding all that's mine
each time i let just one slip by
i'm wasting what is mine

[[chorus x2]]

goodbye to you goodbye to you

(..my time.. my time.. my time..)

i'm about to see a million things
i thought i'd never see before and I
i'm about to do all the things i dreamed of and
I don't even miss you at all [x2]

[[chorus x6]]

goodbye to you goodbye to youback to top
Say Days Ago
I still remember a year ago
the times we spent
i think that i'm happier now
up from the down
by all means it's strange cause i feel the same way

i think of what it looks like
i think of what it tastes like
i think of what it looks like
i think of what it tastes..(tastes)..

same strange
said it's strange cause i feel the same [x2]

still remember what it tastes like
what it felt like

makes me ill

(strange cause i feel the same..)

i think of what it looks like
i think of what it tastes like
i think of what it looks like
i think of what it tastes..(tastes)..

same strange
said it's strange cause i feel the same [x2]

SAME STRANGE
SAID IT'S STRANGE CAUSE I FEEL THE SAME[x2]

and while bert's screaming that part the background vocals are:
(still remember what it tastes like... what it felt like..)

MAKES ME ILL

still remember what it tastes like

Poetic Tragedy
Awesome song - get it:D lol

The cup is not half empty
As pessimists say.
As far as he sees
Nothings left in the cup.

A whole cup full of nothing
For him to induldge
Since the voice of ambition
Has long since been shut up.

A singer
A writer
Hes not dreaming now of going nowhere
Gave heed to nothing
And all that he was...
Is just a tragedy

So he voyages in circles
Succeeds getting nowhere.
And submits to the substance
That first got him there,
there, there..There.

In violent frustration,
He cries out to god or just noone.
Is there a point to this madness
And all that he was...
Is just a tragedy

And he feels alone,
His heart in his hand,
He's alone.
And he feels alone,
Oh he feels...

Then on that last day he breaks,
He stood up tall and he yelled,
And he yelled...

In violent frustration
He cries out to god
Or just no one.
Is there a point to this madness
And all that he was...
Is just a tragedyback to top
Buried Myself Alive
You almost always pick the best times,
to drop the worst lines.
You almost made me cry again this time.
Another false alarm,
red flashing lights.
Well this time I'm not going to watch myself die.
I think I made it a game to play your game,
and let myself cry.
I buried myself alive on the inside,
so I could shut you out,
and let you go away for a long time.

I guess it's ok I puked the day away.
I guess it's better you trapped yourself in your own way.
And if you want me back,
you're gonna have to ask.

I think the chain broke away,
and I felt it the day that I had my own time.
I took advantage of myself and felt fine,
but it was worth the night,
I caught an early flight and I made it home.

I guess it's ok I puked the day away.
I guess it's better you trapped yourself in your own way.
and if you want me back,
you're gonna have to ask.
nicer than that (2X)

with my foot on your neck,
I finally have you,
right where I want you (4X)

I guess it's ok I puked the day away.
I guess it's better you trapped yourself in your own way.
and if you want me back,
you're gonna have to ask.
nicer than that (2X)
and if you want me back,
you're gonna have to ask.
nicer than that

Blue and Yellow
Used - Blue And Yellow




And its all in how you mix the two
And it starts just where the light exists
It's the feeling that you cannot miss
And it burns a hole
Through everyone that feels it
Well your never gonna find it
If your looking for it
Won't come your way
Well you'll never find it
If you're looking for it
Should've done something, but I've done it enough
By the way, your hands were shaking
Rather waste some time with you
And you never would have thought in the end
How amazing it feels just to live again
It's the feeling that you cannot miss
And it burns a hole through everyone that feels it
Well your never gonna find it
If your looking for it
Won't come your way
Well you'll never find it
If you're looking for it
Should've done something, but I've done it enough
By the way, your hands were shaking
Rather waste some time with you
Should've said something, but I've said it enough
By the way, my words are fading
Rather waste some time with you
Waste some time with you...back to top
Greener With the Scenery
i took it back
how could you go and do something like that
my fingernail phase
worst has got the best of you
i ask you and i know i need to change
you took it back
you ripped my heart out of me then you put it back
i'm pulling my hair
i let you just a million times
i love you even though it isn't fair

chorus:
change
run we go around again in circles
play this game over again

took it back.. took it back..

it's a short song, that's all the lyrics to it, haha.
except for the little background thing they say:

(..change
go running in circles..)

and viola. that's it.back to top
Noise and Kisses
look in my eyes
im jaded now whatever that means
by sharing these things i rip my heart out
its worth my time whatever that means

hard to see up
my neck feels stiff
until i wake up
the orange i chocked
and back to my neck
its worth my time
whatever that means
so..

chorus:
share with me
cause i need it right now lemme see your insides
or write me off
cause i'd rather starve now if you won't open up

give it to me
give me all
whatever you want
its never been me
to want this much
from you i can see
yeah-hah

[[chorus]]

look in my eyes
im jaded now whatever that means
by sharing these things i rip my heart out
its worth my time whatever that means

On My Own
see all those people on the ground
waisting time
try to hold it all inside
but just for tonight
top of the world
sitting here wishing the things ive become
but something is missing
maybe i..
but what do i know?

and now it seems that i have found
nothing at all
i wanna hear your voice out loud
slow it down, slow it down
without it all im choking on nothing
it's clear in my head
and im screaming for something
nothing knowing is better then knowing at all

(on my own.. on my own.. on my own.. on my own..)

i'm on my own. OWN. [x2]

without it all
i'm choking on nothing
it's clear in my head
and im screaming for something
knowing nothing is better then knowing at all

(on my own.. on my own.. on my own.. on my own..)back to top
Pieces Mended
Used - Pieces Mended




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 morningback to top
