Something That I'm Not Lyrics

8. Something That I'm Not (5:07)
Track rating :  70 / 100      Votes :  1     
Your mind tells you that you've lost your confidence
You're drifting and you don't believe in anyone
To lose what little you have left to be proud of
Afraid you can't do this again
You said that nothing could come in between us
And the way your getting things we wanted done
Then Enosiophobia held you under it's influence
Until you compromised your style

Everything about you has been one big sharade
What will you do now that the well's run dry?
To sell out all your friends and stab them in the back
It's something that you are, it's something that I'm not

When you force me into doing what you love
Mark my words, no one loves you very much
And when you tried to change me and tried to replace me
I couldn't help but end just hating you
Being a fraud can only last so long
So what you sensed as a child returns
To choke out the voice, that told you money and fame
Would fill the cradle that you dug for yourself

Unlike you, I'm no vision to myself, lest you forget
You didn't ever make metal, but metal made you
To crush and run over everyone along the way
It's something that you are, it's something that I'm not
A stranger to yourself, you pissed me off again
I won't be driven by your needs anymore
What did you come to do or be? It's clear to see for me
It's something that you are, it's something that I'm not

It makes me sick to hear you say you love me
I know you only love what I can do for you
If you were the one that was leading a charge
Would you notice if I missed a day or two?
We all laughed at the parody that you've become
Now your pain's lowly payback has begun
So accept my resignation or in your words, "betrayal"
Before it gets much worse and there's self-sabotage

Something I'm not
Something that you are
Something I'm not

Something I'm not
Something that you are
Something I'm not!
Something that you are
Something that I'm not... yet
