The Used – Revolution

“One way to move forward is to learn who’s stopping me”

The first two songs we posted were from 2006 and 2009, but this song is a new one. Revolution is the first song of the album Imaginary Enemy from The Used, which is released in 2014. It’s important that an album has a good song to open with, and Revolution is a very good one. The Used is a bit changing their music the last few years, so the album Imaginary Enemy is a bit different then their former ones. Nevertheless Revolution is a very good song.

Album: Imaginary Enemy

Year: 2014

 

Lyrics

All revolutions are impossible until they happen, then they become inevitable

 

It’s not enough to kill the past

Be blind to history

And all at once there’s a black cloud coming

Made of gasoline

I see that you have set the price

Make sure that nothing’s free

One way to move forward

Is to learn who’s stopping me

 

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Burn

Like a fire in the rain

Like a fire in the rain

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Yeah!

 

We looked at the price tag and it’s one we can’t afford

We were taught that progression means accumulating more

It’s not to protect ourselves so why are we at war

Isn’t it obvious we’re adding up the score

 

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Burn

Like a fire in the rain

Like a fire in the rain

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Yeah!

 

I’ll never turn my back on where I’m from

I’ll never stop believing

I’ll always love my home

But from that love I’ve noticed who’s been burned

I’ve noticed who’s still bleeding

It seems the fire has grown

So from now on I pledge allegiance

To a world that’s so much different

No one suffers everyone is free

Revolution starts with me

 

Revolution

Revolution

Calling for a revolution

Revolution

Revolution

Calling for

 

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

 

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Yeah!

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Burn

Like a fire in the rain

Like a fire in the rain

This is the end

This is the end

Calling for revolution

Yeah!

Pray for revolution

Yeah!

Gave a revolution

 

One of the things that’s happened is that this movement has acquired an air of inevitability

 

 

Opinion Daniël

This is a really awesome song. It has some calm parts (not many but that doesn’t matter) and also parts with a lot of energy.

Opinion Justin

A good song to start an album with is very important, and this song is a really good one. The music is very good with hard refrains and a bit more calm couplets. The lyrics are good as well, especially the couplets. “One way to move forward is to learn who’s stopping me.” That’s just awesome!

Grade: 8,8

Opinion Timothy

Good song. It has a funny start and end through which it ends good. Between the beginning and the end there are awesome parts of music. It never becomes boring. Although the lyrics aren’t very special in my opinion.

Grade: 8,5

Overall: 8,6

Revolution comes in 2nd place out of three in the ranking at the moment.
