"Used For Glue" as written by and Walter Arthur Schreifels....
Days of the conflicts you've been in
Traces of conscience you don't want to hear
You hear it now
You listen, hear a sound
You missed it
Taken by conscience or taken by guilt
You live in the problems you decided to build
You hear it now
You listen and hear a sound that can't be still
The blame is found, you got it
Rode when she was new
You're used for glue
Yeah
Dazed for time you were into
Praise from the crowd that you wanted to fool
You call them now, they're waiting
To hear a sound that can't be still
The blame is found, you got it
Rode when she was new but wasn't told when she was through
Yeah
Listen to a sound that can't be still
The blame is found, you got it
Rode when she was new but wasn't told when she was through
Yeah

    General Commentthe expression "Used For Glue" relates to racehorses. when a horse has reached the end of it's career it is killed and basically turned into glue. therefore it means that no matter how good a racehorse you've been, you're still going to have a shitty future. i'll explain...

    basically it's about a relationship in which the guy does everything he can think of to make the girl happy, but she never seems happy with him, and he feels that the relationship now will only end in pain, no matter how much he puts into it.
    he is not himself, acting in a way he wouldn't naturally so that he might please her and her friends, but it still just doesn't work, and he sees it all as his fault.
    "a sound that can't be still" is something that continues to be heard, so the whole relationship is beginning to come repetitive. all he hears is how unhappy she is, all her friends hear is him grovelling to her, trying to be perfectly something he isn't.
    "rode when she was new, wasn't told when she was through" once again relates to the titles racehorse connection. when the relationship was new, it was going well but the girl never told him when it started to go badly so he doesn't know what, if anything, he's done wrong. hence why he feels so guilty.
    ok, that's what i think. hope it made some sense. great song, and it makes sense to me with my meaning. anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentI love this song. i think its about feeling guilty for something that you could help, or something that wasn't your fault. And you're trying to tell yourself that its not your fault, but you still feel really guilty. i don't know how that links with the video though (a girl and a boy getting together at a party) so i'm probably fantastically wrong. oh well...

    General Commentits "face for a crowd you wanted to fool" not "praise from the crowd"...
    It's about moving on with your life past anything you've felt guilty or conflicted about, and also having people close to you supporting and helping you. - "you call 'em now, they're waiting, to hear a sound that can't be still"

    General CommentI think it might have something to do with taking a girl's cherry. Or maybe that's just me. You know, "Rode when she was new." Or maybe it's my guttermind and the song is about showjumping.
