Lyrics for El-Oh-Vee-Ee by The Used :
[Verse 1]
Stuff your pockets, stuff your mouth
Much more than feeding
Your bloated god, your bank account
Your empathy’s fleeting

Now that you own the cure, you bought the truth
Still, you want more
Down on your knees, you bleed it out
This type of believing

[Chorus]
Hold on, wait
We have had all we can take
You can keep the money
‘Cause all we need is el-oh-vee-ee, love

El-oh-vee-ee, love
El-oh-vee-ee, el-oh-vee-ee, love

[Verse 2]
You pushed the point to no return
Take more and repeat it
Stockpiled possessions, watch them burn
We’ve got all we needed

Before you got too far
We realized just who you are
Down on your knees, you bleed it out
This type of believing

[Chorus]
Hold on, wait
We have had all we can take
You can keep the money
‘Cause all we need is el-oh-vee-ee, love

El-oh-vee-ee, love
El-oh-vee-ee, el-oh-vee-ee, love

[Bridge]
You’ve got your mansion
You’ve got your minions
Protected privilege
But we’ve got love

You’ve got your black gold
You’ve got your pipeline
Capitalism
But we’ve got love

You’ve got reserve banks
With no reserves
You’ve got religion
Control the herds

You’ve got your slave trade
Of prostitution
You’ve got your green god

But we’ve got love
Yes, we’ve got love
Yes, we’ve got love
Yes, we’ve got love

[Chorus]
Hold on, wait
We have had all we can take
You can keep the money
‘Cause all we need is el-oh-vee-ee, love

El-oh-vee-ee, love
El-oh-vee-ee, el-oh-vee-ee, love

[Outro]
Yes, we’ve got love
Yes, we’ve got love
Yes, we’ve got love
Yes, we’ve got love

Love, love, love, love, love
