The Used – Imaginary Enemy

“We are much less different than we know, imaginary enemy”

Imaginary Enemy by The Used is a song on the same named album which was released in 2014. Imaginary Enemy, the song, is quite calm one. It actually shows quite good the change The Used made the last few years. Blood On My Hands, which we’ve criticized earlier, was from their old style. This is their new style. Calm, but still with a good rhythm and accessible for many more people than their old style.

Album: Imaginary Enemy

Year: 2014

 

Lyrics

I wasn’t made to understand

I’ve given up my name

Forgotten where I stand

Sometimes I don’t know who I am

I used to feel so scared

I used to hold your hand

 

I’m so sick of playing favorites

Sick of being scared

 

They would rather see you all alone

Imaginary enemy

We are much less different than we know

Imaginary enemy

Imaginary enemy

I would never leave you all alone

Imaginary enemy

 

I will not ever understand

Just how it got this way

And how it got so bad

You’re not a part of what we need

There is no common ground

We hate what you believe

 

I’m so sick of playing favorites

Sick of being scared

 

They would rather see you all alone

Imaginary enemy

We are much less different than we know

Imaginary enemy

Imaginary enemy

I would never leave you all alone

Imaginary enemy

 

Who taught me to hate you

When I don’t even know you

Who created the enemy

 

Who taught me to hate you

When I don’t even know you

Who taught me to hate you, hate you, hate you

 

Who created the enemy

Who created

 

They would rather see you all alone

Imaginary enemy

We are much less different than we know

Imaginary enemy

Imaginary enemy

I would never leave you all alone

Imaginary enemy

 

Who created the enemy

Who created

Opinion Justin

The first time I heard this song it sounded a bit too calm for me, but I actually do like it. It’s not too hard but it has a nice rhythm. And the lyrics of this song are quite good as well. It’s not the best song The Used has, but it’s still a decent one.

Opinion Timothy

The start of the song was quite boring in my opinion, but the refrain sounds quite good. I like them, although I don’t really like the couplets. This song has parts which I like and parts which I dislike, so it’s a mix for me.
