Used, The - Force Without Violence Lyrics




Our voices still silence
the plans that we've made
the dead cannot hear
all the prayers that we beg

Is there a force without violence
is there a catch with no hook
believing the lies while they fix all the books

Things will never change
if we remain the same
our hearts call us by name

These walls won't keep us safe
when they hold us back like barricades
It's time now to replace these walls
the walls around our heart

Theres no price we wont pay
and we steal it back just to give it away
its time now to replace these walls
the walls around our hearts

When fear breaks the silence
the choice has been made
we're listening now to sounds from the grave

This brave opposition
comes naturally
being exactly who we're supposed to be

Things will never change
if we remain the same
our hearts call us by name

These walls won't keep us safe
when they hold us back like barricades
It's time now to replace these walls
the walls around our heart

Theres no price we wont pay
and we steal it back just to give it away
its time now to replace these walls
the walls around our hearts

We'll take what we're given
we'll pay for our freedom
We'll take what we're given
we'll pray for our freedom

We'll take what we're given
we'll pray for our freedom
We'll take what we're given
we'll pay for our freedom

These walls won't keep us safe
when they hold us back like barricades
It's time now to replace these walls
the walls around our heart

Theres no price we wont pay
and we steal it back just to give it away
its time now to replace these walls
the walls around our hearts

  2. Joseph Staley

    About to see the used this Friday and can't wait... !

  3. Brant Merritt

    As much as I have loved this song since the first listen, it is hard to listen to it today and see how the subject matter pertains in many ways to our current government policies agenda.

  4. Its Kylier

    Yea trump! These wall's wont keep us safe!

    Ruby Dragon

    I totally agree with that

  5. Robert Lewis

    Does anybody miss Thursday????

    Witness Me

    Yes.  They're back together now, though-- I guess it's only a matter of time until they put out a new album!

    Robert Lewis

    Wasn't War All The Time one of the best albums ever?

    Witness Me

    @Robert Lewis Of course.  My favorite song from it is "Division Street".
    Beneath the footsteps I hear crickets in the trees
    A silent army marching with me through a swarm of bees

  6. Lyton28

    4:54 from which other song its this sound...?

    SGB Highlighter

  22. Samantha Giff

    This song is by far my favourite off the album! It's constantly on repeat!!!  Quite close to being my favourite The Used song (nothing will overtake On My Own though). xD

    Martin Schrämli

    same here! especially the drumming is just fantastic :) those are four very inspired guys.. i so hope i will finally see them live

    Samantha Giff

    @pfegeli They're very very talented!! They're also awesome live =] I've been lucky enough to meet them all, they're such lovely genuine guys :) 

    Martin Schrämli

    omg, that really sounds awesome! i so want to experience their energy live.. but i think i'll need a little more luck since they're not in switzerland very often - they are next week but at a festival where you have to pay for all 3 days.. hope there will be another chance!

  23. Jeremy Deane

    so haunting

  24. Dana Zier

    So happy they are back!!!! Love this whole album

  25. robert haibi

    This album grew on me a lot. I must admit when I first heard it I absolutely hated it. The only song I'm still a bit iffy on is imperial aggression.

    Brandon Deoliveira

    Same with me I loved make believe revolution and cry but then when I heard the rest and like wtf is this but this is one of those albums you really have to listen to too understand

    gobblegot

    whats Imperial aggression?

    ProfessorRJLupin

    @gobblegot "A Song To Stifle Imperial Progression", a song that disses American foreign and environmental policy.  It's a very good song, really.  Unless you're a Republican.  Then, you'll hate it.

    gobblegot

    im not even american .... lol i only metioned it because he had the song title completely wrong... no republicans in my country...

    oldmanfromyork

    totally agree. its growing on me.

  26. Jeremy Deane

    As always awesome

  27. KillaMcmilla mcmillan

    I hate to use harsh words, but if you havent liked this album up till now, you got to be Retarted!!! and i typed that when he was talking and going off!!!
