Used, The - Evolution Lyrics




Call me a traitor,
For changing my mind.
Call me a criminal,
If thinking's a crime.
Call me an animal,
It's hard to define.
I don't care what you say I came to defy.

I've come so far.

Everything changes.
With the way that I feel,
Seems impossible I'll stay the same.
Time rearranges.
The more we refuse,
Is the more time we stand in the way.

And how am I to be myself?
Everyone's trying to be everyone else.
Everything changes.
With the way that I feel,
Seems impossible I'll stay the same

Go back to the middle,
Try filling the void.
Watch thoughts into action
Its hard to destroy.
Call me an animal,
And I won't deny.
I don't care what you say I came to defy.

I've come so far.

Everything changes.
With the way that I feel,
Seems impossible I'll stay the same.
Time rearranges.
The more we refuse,
Is the more time we stand in the way.

And how am I to be myself?
Everyone's trying to be everyone else.
Everything changes.
With the way that I feel,
Seems impossible I'll stay the same.

What will you do to me,
When I refuse to go?
Who's gonna fight all your wars,
When the people won't show?
What will you do to us,
When we won't do what you say?
What will you do to us,
When we won't do what you say?

Everything changes.
With the way that I feel,
Seems impossible I'll stay the same.
Time rearranges.
The more we refuse,
Is the more time we stand in the way.

And how am I to be myself?
Everyone's trying to be everyone else.
Everything changes.
With the way that I feel,
Seems impossible I'll stay the same.

Call me a traitor,
For changing my mind.
Call me a criminal,
If thinking's a crime.
Call me an animal,
It's hard to define.
I don't care what you say I came to defy.

    dan✓gooutside

    They all vote for Clinton

    Sweatt

    R.I.P. Nathaniel Eason, Why did you have to go and end your life?

    Jason Hurk

    @dan✓gooutside They are socialists. They did no such thing. Fuck electorial politics

  12. Liz Palmer

    FUCK YEAH THE USED! IM SO PUMPED!

  13. James AC 99

    this song is a gem its hidden and forgotten by their other songs which is annoying

  14. Juan Piece games

    sounds like he was leaving it or something but y'all can call me crazy lol

  15. Juan Piece games

    I feel like he's sending message to us about the Illuminati just listen closely to the lyrics and you'll know wat I mean

  16. Doug Dimmadome, owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome

    Fuck this is a really good song, but it's hard to listen to because this was my favorite song in my cringy emo phase

    Shanti 'Sanjay' Roy

    My emo phase ended officially in 2010. It's hard for me to imagine what emo was like in 2014. But yeah I was between 18-23 when I was into the emo scene.

    Witness Me

    @Shanti Roy Well, The Used aren't exactly an emo band anymore.  They're more of an experimental post-hardcore band now, with highly politicized lyrics.

    Shanti 'Sanjay' Roy

    I was just replying to your last comments, over 2 months ago.
    Yeah, I know they have political lyrics. I wrote another post on one of their videos how it was a dream come true to me. In short my whole town discriminated against me because of my views. It was a pretty lonely time for me. I could never have imagined The Used would one day share the same views.
    Just saw them play Self-Titled in full tonight. Fuck, it was amazing, full of feels and just amazing. Bert said a lot of things about sticking it to the man, and wore a sickle and hammer t-shirt. Back during the In Love and Death days I was communist but kept it hidden from my emo friends so I couldn't stop staring at the shirt all night. He brought his daughter out too and sang Poetic Tragedy to her, and she swayed back and forth. So cute.
    Tomorrow night is In Love and Death in full.

    Witness Me

    @Shanti Roy I love In Love and Death! I can pretty much sing the entire album by heat.

    Sebastian Gamer

    with the best of all of

  17. Truthisify

    Help Me

  18. Soul Intent

    I grew up and the used had formed during the process, yet i had never heard this song til a week ago. This is beautiful. And im mostly a fucked up rap kinda guy, but this hits the feels hard.

  19. Skeletonwithskin

    One of my favorite songs by the used

  20. Its Kylier

    burty is me life <3

  21. AngelAndRhian VLOGS

    Crying because its nearly been a year since i met bert and jepha. Dont mind me

    ThePandaNation

    me too!

  22. Diane D

    Almost 1 year later this is still my favourite song.

  23. Hathor! The Magnificent

    One of those songs that seem like they last longer than they actually do..

  24. Mikee P

    from reading the comments this albums main demographic is emotional bitches....

  25. Kyle Garr

    the used is the best band there is. they dont have any bad songs at all. they are all amazing!!!

  26. Ha la

    my fav song n band so far ! ugh why the heck they aren't famous yet !

    oldmanfromyork

    They have sold 3 million records. I'd say that's fame right there.

    BroScience Bodybuilding

    Ummmm really? They were famous back in 2002ish when they were really good and made some raw ass music. Now they're washed up and not what they used to be at all is why there is such a huge drop off in popularity

  27. Dylan Rawr

    This is a great songi believe its more tim mcilrath<3 with the lyrics and stuff both really good bands tho 4sure

  28. Laurine Music

    I fucking love this band. awesome song!

  29. linkel docks

    song is so good

  30. Christopher Myers (Trepabeard)

    WHAT WILL YOU DO TO US WHEN WE WON'T DO WHAT YOU SAY?!?!

    A Cookie

    That part really hit me xD

  31. roseani pereira da silva

    3 perfeito

  32. Colton Dyer

    wow...Its hard to believe some of the comments Ive seen on the hatred towards their newer albums...do any of you even know and understand the back story behind why he wrote the music the way he did at first, because for someone who's listened to them since i was little and knows the story you'd know that this change in style is a good thing, whether you like it or not because of the things overcome to get here

  33. anime jesus

    this doesn't have enough likes or views... 

  34. New Eden

    WHY IS THIS NOT A VIDEO, ITS ONE OF THE BEST SONGS SINCE ROCK!!!!!!

  35. Wendy Lestourgeon

    And how am I to be myself? Everyone trying to be everyone else.

  36. Extracted Expressions

    "Who's gonna fight all your wars when the people won't show?"
    I'm so astonished and in awe at the Truthful lyricism of this whole album.
    The Used is displaying a beautiful example of the global people's revolution taking place right now. 
    People everywhere are revolting against corrupt oppressive corporate governments who are only focused on undermining rights and serving the upper class.
    We're starting wars in Syria and Iraq against "terrorist" groups that the US trained and funded and it's beyond time for Americans to Wake up to the lies the media has shaped our minds with to make us complacent with endless wars where we murder innocent people in other countries so the rich can get richer and dominate oil laden areas. The military industrial complex is a murdering machine. We're dropping bombs in other countries (destroying innocent lives) yet Americans are suffering from home foreclosures, Police brutality, famine, lack of healthcare, lack of sustainable wages, school debts. We can find money for war but we can't end poverty and make sure every American has a healthy life?
    We have the ability to create harmony for every human, So let's take back our freedom and make that a reality.

    Also it made my heart really warm to see Chelsea Manning (Bradley Manning) On the cover of this album. Manning's story needs to be understood by every American so we can all see the deceit our war criminal government has always been feeding us.

  37. Pelin Karaaslan

    AMAN TANRIM DİDİM

  38. xXBeardedMonkeyXx

    Are the people on the channel the singers to theses songs?

  39. BV_Gabe

    Great song

  40. JR G

    Everybody says the used are not the same he did scream his voice and the drummer in the self tiled and love and death thos were the best albums when they had Brandon and Bert could actually scream but I also think that they just got money that's what I think but bert is still the shit haha 👍

  41. Olka134

    Amazing ! <3 The Used 4ever ! <3

  42. Jessica Shaw

    The autotune on all of these songs is just awful.

    Big Chungus

    Notice I'm the only one replying? That's how meaningful your comment was. Pathetic.

    skywrecker

    @RichyxxRuthless  said with authority! 

    Truthisify

    I agree

  43. Pepridge

    None of The Used songs sound original anymore....every song from the first album was hardcore and uninfluenced by fans and trying to stay current or popular.  im just disappointed boys:( 

  44. Miko Mauricio

    I totally respect where this band is headed to right now, using art as a weapon to defy authority, making a better place for everyone to live in. I always knew bert was fit to be a role model, The Used is the doctrine of my life. Kinda fucked up but hella worth it. loved them ever since i knew what ink taste like...

  45. SnortnSnowflakes

    I love the base line so much. Don't even get me started on the lyrics. "Call me a criminal, If thinking's a crime."

  46. lebz29

    love thier new album.. at first though was hesitant but the more you keep on playing thier album it just grows on you :)

  47. sara milena

    I love the album!! come to colombia guys pls.

  48. raj finch TV

    they evolving as music enthusiast making them more creative between the new era of post rock hardcore and scheme of pop electro sounds that grooves you every words they say in the song..

  49. Joel Johnson

    Favorite song off the album

  50. CherrycakeMadness

    I just had a realization x"D this album is much like botdf's "(R)Evolution" with the "starts with a revolution and ends with an evolution" mentality, that's sick awesome! ^^ especially since botdf are fan of The Used

  51. Mitchell Mckay

    My life in a nutshell

  52. celeste morton

    loving the whole album with it's apolitical feel. 

  53. carlos nathan mercado

    Fuck all the haters!! Best rock Album of the year... 

  54. Gabriel GPR

    Loving the album. Very deep and emotional song. I don't care if a band changes. If I like it, I will keep hearing it. Maybe the whiners should change too. Anyway, good job again The Used.

  55. KillaMcmilla mcmillan

    so awesome!!!!

  56. KillaMcmilla mcmillan

    People will say they sold out because they are jealous cause the put out albums every year or other and they are the first of there kind, but every newer rock band has a pussy as singer that can scream when he has to, and that makes me sick, the used, its just natural for them..

  57. carlawawa777

    Resonating hard.

    Truthisify

    Songs like this always will the world we live in is hard

  58. robert haibi

    Favorite song on the album I think.

  59. Big Chungus

    This album is about being selfless and human. Maybe we shouldn't focus on comparing them to OLD album. Maybe we should just FUCKING listen to what they are trying to say to other humans.

    xMissDiazx

    this should be attached somewhere to every video of every song from this album 

    Big Chungus

    Thanks for loving the truth, my dozen new friends :)

    Cori RedThunder

    RichyxxRuthless right! can you imagine if each day you were constantly compared to who you were a decade ago?! strange that people expect these humans to be the exact same a decade later. I would actually be disappointed if they hadn't grown and evolved as a band and as humans. and from my perspective they kept their same unique sound. I love the used, then, now and forever!

  60. Saul Omar Ruiz

    This song is good!

  61. Justin Tierno

    Great song. Sounds like Earthquake though.

    Shaun Music

    That's a good thing lol

  62. fungky

    wow,, awsome ??? really like THE USED ,,, since the first i hear,, the lyric so GREAT,,, ?? keep rock,,,

  63. Ian Stull

    The breakdown at 2:21 is awesome.

  64. ReginaSirens

    Loving the whole album, its so beautiful :')

  65. Honda Ryan

    One of the most beautifully artistic songs I've heard. Not only that, when the chorus came, I knew i found the one song that I've been waiting for that I could relate to.

    This is the most beautiful song i've ever heard <3 just too much i can't.

  69. Graffiti DCT

    amazing song!! The Used has been my favorite band since I was 14 I really like there new album, never get tired of there music keep them coming!!

  70. Islam Hashim

    best of the album .. i love u guys 

  71. Michael Del Carlo

    i love this so much

  72. doubletakejake

    I LOVE THE USED!!!

  73. ProfessorRJLupin

    Excellent!  This is a terrific album, with "Revolution" being my favorite song.  I love how The Used's sound can change even over the course of an album.  It's hard to rank their albums in order of preference.  I think that Artwork is the best album as a cohesive whole, but Lies for the Liars has my favorite of their songs on it.  I can't choose, they're all excellent.

  74. Cuddly Panda

    I'm so happy the used didn't leave us after 12 years. The album is incredible!

  75. Steven Hanenburg

    They've Evolved significantly since ArtWork, & that was still relatively recent. A lot of bands get worse over time, but not The Used

  76. MikeAndersonSounds

    Call me a traitor for changing my mind
    Call me a criminal if thinking’s a crime
    Call me an animal it’s hard to deny
    I don’t care what you say, I came to defy

    so fucking good.

  77. MikeAndersonSounds

    This is my favorite song on the whole album :) 

  78. Geovani Alves

    Looks a lot like Classic Crime - Who Needs Air

  79. paxmypenguina

    i'm starting to feel this band replace mcr

    paxmypenguina

    There are a lot of theories as to why My Chem broke up, and none of them have been confirmed. I'm just saying, Fake Your Death sounds like they were tired. They were throwing in the towel, giving up on being a band.

    paxmypenguina

    The link to the Kerrang! Article? It was in the 'MCR songs re-reviewed' issue, I'm not sure if the article is on the internet but it's in there

    Shazza Rose

    @february iero I'm sorry to say mate, there is photographic evidence that Mikey cheated, and he is still with that girl now...

    paxmypenguina

    Dude, he broke up with Alicia. Now he's engaged to Sarah, but we don't know if they are still together. It's none of our fucking business, and it's his choice. That isn't why the band broke up, We don't know WHY they did. All we know is that Gerard said in an interview that he had started drinking again and that MCR5 was going too dark, and he wanted to leave the band in a positive place.

    dio lobon

    @february iero My Chemical Romance 2001 - FOREVER! We Are The Used \m/

  80. Benny Echelon

    the album is awesome! love it!

  81. ratjockey

    amazing

  82. Quilan Diggz

    Jizzed my pants. During every song. I'm exhausted.

  83. Jimmy Loeffert

    This is amazing,

  84. azbycx zaybzc

    those lyrics make the song so powerful and AHH its just....brilliant!

  85. JCarp

    There is an undeniable amount of vigor, heart, and validity in your lyrics. It really makes the music come alive. Keep doing what you're doing, guys. xx

  86. CJ Whitmore

    I love it!!! As a songwriter you guys have been an incredibly huge influence on me and your music has helped me get through some tough times. Keep doing what you guys do best!

  87. Blain Kritcher

    great :)
