The Taste Of Ink Lyrics - The Used

Review The Song (38)



Is it worth the can you even hear me
Standing with your spotlight on me
Not enough to feed the hungry
I'm tired and I felt it for awhile now
In this sea of lonely
The taste of ink is getting old
It's four o' clock in the fucking morning
Each day gets more and more like the last day
Still I can see it coming
While I'm standing in the river drowning
This could be my chance to break out
This could be my chance to say goodbye
At last it's finally over
Couldn't take this town much longer
Being half dead wasn't what I planned to be
Now I'm ready to be free

So here I am it's in my hands
And I'll savor every moment of this
So here I am alive at last
And I'll savor every moment of this

Won't you think I'm pretty
When I'm standing top the bright lit city
And I'll take your hand and pick you up
And keep you there so you can see it
As long as you're alive and care
I promise I will take you there
We'll drink and dance the night away
We'll drink and dance the night away

So here I am it's in my hands
And I'll savor every moment of this
So here I am alive at last
And I'll savor every moment of this
Savor every moment of this

(As long as you're alive here I am..)

As long as you're alive
Here I am
I promise I will take you there

As long as you're alive
Here I am
I promise I will take you there

Won't you think I'm pretty
When I'm standing top the bright lit city
And I'll take your hand and pick you up
And keep you there so you can see it
So long as you're alive and care
I promise I will take you there
So long as you're alive and care
I promise I will take you there

So here I am it's in my hands
And I'll savor every moment of this
So here I am alive at last
And I'll savor every moment of this
Savor every moment of this
Savor every moment of this

(speaking in background..)
(Music rest of song.)

my tribute By lauren geist | Reviewer: lauren geist | 7/16/11

i believe my ice eyes are forced to see the forbidden acts of yesterday frozen in today Iam the glass angel so for me these ironies are destiny weight ill hold up for the world. Lifes love Ive become peace lives through me so my soul can still stand working toword morality I have become sheilded see through me Im numb



love it | Reviewer: Lena | 1/20/10

i love this song and everysong they have ever wrote. i can relate to this song. growing up in a village of about 500 people (no joke), most of the time i felt like i couldn't breathe nor survive there. no understood the things i did and why i did them, i could scream and no one would notice or if they did they didn't care. i wanted to get out as soon as i could since i was 13, because 'being half dead wasn't what i planned to be' i'm 18 just graduated highschool, now i'm living in the city 5 hours from where i grew up. it gets hard at times but i'm following my dreams and everything i do is worth it. i won't lie, if i stayed in that town i would have gone crazy. thankgod i broke out. i just saw the used in concert and it was awesome. and now i'm savoring every moment of this.

BERT IS MY BABY | Reviewer: Rachel | 6/19/09

This Song means so much to me, I can relate to it so well, I can't WAIT to get out of this place, to finally be free. The Used is my ALL TIME FAVORITE BAND! They inspire me so much and i won't ever stop listening to them. And, even better, Bert McCracken is the CUTEST MOST ATTRACTIVE MAN ON EARTH. I LOOOOVE HIM SO MUCH-EEEEEP! Quinn is a cutey, too...;)....and don't EVER forget JEPHA!!!!!



Dear Brytt | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/10/09

Brytt, Bert says how it's about breaking free...
It's about how The Used used to be in Utah, and they hated it... Coming from highly conservative families, they felt like it was holding them back, and this song is about how they broke free, left all that behind them, and starting touring.

Listen to the first verse, especially these lines:
"The taste of ink is getting old
It's four o' clock in the fucking morning" -- This is meaning they can't get inspiration for their songs in boring old Utah, staying up all night trying to think of ideas... The "taste of ink" is frustration, biting on the end of a pen.


Each day gets more and more like the last day
Still I can see it coming
While I'm standing in the river drowning" This is saying it's getting worse everyday they're there, it's all the same stuff over and over, but they can see the light, they can see they'll get out, but while they're there, it feels like they're drowning in a river.



"This could be my chance to break out
This could be my chance to say goodbye
At last it's finally over
Couldn't take this town much longer
Being half dead wasn't what I planned to be
Now I'm ready to be free"
This is when they actually leave, get out of there,
"At last it's finally over" they're happy they're old enough to get out of there...
"Being half dead wasn't what I planned to be" Being there was like being half dead, they couldn't pursue their dream of being The Used.



I hope this clears it up. :)



Meaning? | Reviewer: Brytt | 4/29/09

I was listening to this on Music Choice and one of the facts at the bottom of the screen was that this song tells the story of how their band formed. Don't get me wrong, I love the Used and the song, but I don't understand how this explains any of that. Care to shed some light?
