Lirik People Like Me

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

And open doors to hurtin people like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

Is it fair to say that I am stressing out

I'm stationed in Iraq and they won't let me out

My homeys said I was stupid for even joining

My counsellor said that my decision was disappointing

How she had good for good state colleges

And with my good grades it wouldn't have been a problem

But they don't understand the power of significance

More than brilliance and certainly more than diffedence

And if you ask me now would i repeat it

Would i fight in a war i don't believe in

Well the answer is if not me where the cancer is

They been doing this before Jesus of Nazereth

And after all this time it is still deadly hazardous

And bush isn't really being all that innacurate

When he says we're winning the war cos its staggering

But thats cos we're killing everybody that we see

And most of us soldiers we can barely fall asleep

And time and time again i'm feeling incompetent

Cos my women back home, we're constantly arguing

And i must be crazy cos all i'm obbsessing with is

Her myspace and facebook and who's commenting

I swear to god if she's cheatin' I'm doin her ass in

I can tell with one look and it came to me sounding like something from a song hook

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

and open doors to hurtin people like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

Meet Sarah the proud mother of young sabastian

Suburban professional went to college in shton

In self pity she suddenly cried

Would my life be important if I suddenly died

Neighbours saying what a nice women she was

Keeping mostly to herself ever since the divorce

And with the compant downsizein and the fall and all

She really shouldn't take it that personal at all

It wasn't her boss who had his eyes on her thighs

And got a rise from her risin off the desk though

And despite rememberin sayin no plenty of times

It was still a damn surprise being let go

And now stuck with a mortgage she cant afford

And too educated to blame the corporate world

She got on welfare and hated it case work a power trippin

And generally being degraded if

Nothing else she was treated sick

And ineffective which is the worst thing

That she'd been left with

Damn no magic from david blane

No painter to pain this pain

No morgan freeman to narrorate the shame

So she took refuge and prayer

kinda like findin god in the phonebook

And it came to her sounding something like a song hook

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

And open doors to hurtin people like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

I guess I told you about myself to a degree

Just by telling you about people like me

But people like me they speak politely

They don't start no beef or peace

Everybody gotta eat but everybody doesn't

which is why i want to tell you about my favourite cousin

He and I grew up where the sun shines

And we both partook with the gun crimes

And we both liked american rap rhymes

Even though we didn't understand one line

If you remember my line of notes in my last album

I talked about a close call with a grenade

I think we both must have been about 7th grade

But dont panic we both survived without damage

But we developed a bond like we survived the titanic

But when the country became frantic

My mother tried to get us out, planned it

To the last detail except the plan got derailed

Cos there wasn't enough money for the plain tickets

How bitter when my mother had to chose who to take with her

So my cousin got left in the war and thats just hard to recall

But now i take refuge and prayer

Kinda like finding god in the phonebook

It came to me sounding kinda like something from a song hook

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

And open doors to hurtin people like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

And open doors to hurtin people like me

People like me

People like me

People like me

People like me
