"Use It" as written by and Carl Allan Newman....
The cat calls through the night
And two chicks in the parking lot crack wise
on the price of fame, they stood to gain
The phone book's been ripped off
And two shapes in the dark across the way
know the price of flight, its weight and size
If you've got something that sheds some light

Use it tonight, tonight

Heads down, thumbs up,
Two sips from the cup of human kindness
and I'm shitfaced, just laid to waste
So wait here, wait up,
Stock tips from the credit checks come next
in the logic's line, halt on that dime
If you've got will and a little time

Use it tonight, tonight

You had to send a wrecking crew after me
I can't walk right
You had to send a wrecking crew after me
I can't walk right

Phantom of the heart,
Four beats from the parting lungs and mind
since I was a child, just grew there wild
So heads down, thumbs up,
Four beats from soft and get set to exercise your right, use it tonight
If there's a choice between a chance and flight

Choose it tonight, tonight

You had to send a wrecking crew after me
I can't walk right
You had to send a wrecking crew after me
I can't walk right, I can't walk right

Use it tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight night night night

    General Commentwow...dig the harmonies on the chorus

    gotta say I was really surprised by the sound of this song the first time I heard it. they were smart to release Twin Cinema as the first song off the third album since it sounded the most like what we expected from them.

    the first few times I listened to this song I didn't really know how I felt about it...now I'm certain I love it. I don't care what it means, it makes me want to get up and violently thrash my head about...that's more than enough for me.

    General CommentI always thought that "Cried wise on the price of fame" was actually "Cracked wise on the price of fame" as in, making wisecracks. Who knows though? All I know is this is my favorite song off of twin cinema.

    General CommentI think Use It sounds a lot like their older stuff...the stuff that doesn't is like "Jackie, Dressed in Cobras" and "The Bleeding Heart Show".

    I love this song. It fits right in with any of their older albums.

    General Commenti don't know what the song means, i know i like it.
    i think when they say "heads down, thumbs up" its a reference to that game "7 up" that kids play in school... i like that.

    General CommentIts about taking chances. He's needs help in deciding wheather the people in the song should try again and take a chance or just cut and run (for instance the two chicks who got shafted by their fame). I guess....
