As previously reported, The Used are set to release their fifth album, “Vulnerable,” Tuesday, March 26th.  Leading up to its release, the band is streaming one track per day via multiple outlets.

Starting today, fans can hear “Shine” on AltPress.com and “Put Me Out” via Hurley.com.

The first single “I Come Alive” continues is rise through radio at #23 on the Alternative Charts, which sets them up nicely for their West Coast dates on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour as well as their soon-to-be announced headlining tour.

The Used has definitely had their share of ups and downs. In the early life of the band, members suffered from poverty, homelessness and substance abuse. They even panhandled for change in order to buy food. Climbing the charts is comparably a walk in the park for this Utah-based foursome. Climbing the rock charts is a walk in the park for these guys.

Hands And Faces

Lyrics:

How can I not taste it,
when it’s right there put it in my hand.
And let’s not put it in their faces.
Hide the obvious just a little bit,
It’s coming to this.

You’ll know they’ll never face it,
They’re just a face all covered with a rag.
And they can’t stop talking,
so the bigger it gets.
And yeah they take up space but still nothing’s wasted.

A lie is a lie with crossed hearts and hopes to die.
You can find me underground,
where I can’t hear a sound.
I watched you get down on your knees,
in hopes that I would turn around.
So now you’ll find me underground,
where I can’t hear a sound.

I tried hard to erase it.
I tried not to use it cause’ I can.
And don’t tell me what a race is,
Cause I can get fucked up more than a little bit
It’s coming to this.

We pay to watch it wasted,
They’re just a face all covered with a rag.
And they might keep running,
but the slower they move.
And those moves in time with their perfect placement.

What can I say,
I would have gone another way
cause that isn’t me.
I was born to fade away.
It’s nothing you did, just something I felt as a kid.
And now I can’t feel
I can’t feel anything at all.
It’s nothing at all,
I feel nothing at all.
