You're Like Me

[Verse 1]
Two o'clock, another Monday at war
With a brain that's keeping one eye open
Pray to the vacuum that your nature abhors
You're like me, you're like me

No Advils even if you open the door
You will sleep even if part of you's open
Afraid that you won't have control anymore
You're like me, you're like me

[Chorus]
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me

[Verse 2]
I've heard your story ‘bout in '74
When the world decided you were chosen
Drop to a secret that in silence you bore
You're like me, you're like me

Ten years later, like a meteor
Passing walls of ice that kept you frozen
You ripped your heart out in a record store
You're like me, you're like me

[Chorus]
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me

[Bridge]
You're gonna risk every bone
‘cause you've always known
You're alone, you're alone, you're alone
You're like me

[Verse 3]
Now you woke up and a century's gone
And your patch is only ruins around you
And if you trusted what you built it upon
You're like me, you're like me

Now guess whose plan is burning slow-moving on
You're aware enough it doesn't confound you
But if you trusted that it wasn't a con
You're like me, you're like me

[Chorus]
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me

You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
You're like me, you're like me
