Anybody Else But Me

written by: OurSacredHonor

What the hell possessed me to believe I would change exactly what was me?
And start to rearrange my already distorted reality?
Why did I think that I'd be different from what I was before?
Does a ship change shape between the shores?
I'm torn at the seams
And can't find the means
I'm losing my grip
Starting to slip
And can't hold on for much longer...

I don't seem real to me anymore
I thought that I would change from before
But then I begin to realize
Staring into someone else's eyes
The face in the mirror that I see
Is just me staring back at me
I can't ever change my insides
No matter how hard I've tried
And I wouldn't ever want to be
Anybody else but me

What the hell possessed me to believe that I'd get what I need?
When I know damn well the world is based on greed
Why did I think that things would be different now than they were before?
People can't really change who they are at the core
I'm falling apart
It's breaking my heart
Can't fall asleep
Because I weep
And I fear that in the end I'm going to break...

I don't seem real to me anymore
I thought that I would change from before
But then I begin to realize
Staring into someone else's eyes
The face in the mirror that I see
Is just me staring back at me
I can't ever change my insides
No matter how hard I've tried
And I wouldn't ever want to be
Anybody else but me

Why the hell me?
Why can't they see?
Why won't you help me?
Why won't they let me be!?

I don't seem real to me anymore
I thought that I would change from before
But then I begin to realize
Staring into someone else's eyes
The face in the mirror that I see
Is just me staring back at me
I can't ever change my insides
No matter how hard I've tried
And I wouldn't ever want to be
Anybody else
Anybody else
Anybody else
Anybody else but me
