Like Him, Like Me

Pencils and pens we sit and stare
numbers and sighs flow through the air
I'm manic I'm mad
I'm happy then sad
Oh, somebody help me decide

I've got pages that need to be read
Sort out my life, but I'll sleep instead
Waste photos, take time,
and see that I'm
Just not that guy

Well, I'm just a scene
that flutters, flicks, and fades away
off the screen
that shows you clips from better days
like him
I refuse to be

Quick to pain and slow to learn
Sticks to smoke and flesh to burn
It's all on you,
there's nothin' I can do
Oh, strip down this tired life

Well, I'm just a scene
that flutters, flicks, and fades away
off the screen
that shows you clips from better days
like him
I refuse to be
