As we trudge along 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 now
Who's looking south
Not me I'm not 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
Denied the truth to you
Just like the truth to me
Mostly lied

I'm not going to look back

White it out like glittering wax butterflies

    General CommentThis is by far, one of their strongest, heaviest songs that just likes to grab you by the neck and throw you against a wall! I love it!

    General CommentI think I have the right interpretation of this song.
    This whole album is kinda like a rock opera.
    A story perhaps.
    This song (being the first on the track) is kinda like the ground setting of the album. Kinda like the summarization of all the songs.
    Talking about how he wrote everything down into a prelude type of thing.
    Here's how the opera goes.
    Taste of ink: song about how he became loose and put his mind to something and accomplished it.
    "Bulimic " is about how he finally threw up the drugs. He got them out of his life so
    It wouldn't interfere with his new life.
    Say days ago is the kinda withdrawal- where he is starting to remember the drugs and there effects and he is realizing his dependence on Them.
    Poetic Tragety: this song is about how when he reveled and felt so alone because everyone was telling him that he was choosing the wrong. Which caused him to go into a downward spiral of low self esteem (and probably my favorite track on the album)
    Buried myself alive is how he threw the day away dealing with his esteem.
    A box full of sharp objects is about how he finally went sober and is done thinking about drugs.
    Blue and yellow can be interpreted between drugs or a relationship. Depends how Emo you are or not.
    Greener with the scenery was about him wanting to improve a relationship with a band mate.
    Noises and kisses is about a girl that won't open up her feelings to him. And it tears him up because he feels like he has failed.
    On my own is when he realized that he doesn't
    Know anything and how he accepts his life for what it is.
    Pieces mended is the conclusion to everything.
    And choke me is just about being high.
    However I HIGHLY recomend this CD. I can relate to all the songs so much. Plus I was born the year it came out!

    General CommentThe Used is the most awesome band EVER. I have never beenso impressed with a live show ever. So intense. Bert is absolutely mad, which is made clear when he gets so emotional his gutteral screams cause him to vomit. They are amazing, and this song is the best rock song in years.
