​Just Like You

This song is by Captain Polaroid and appears on the album Other Short Stories And Better Works Of Fiction (2007).

I'm disregarding words like bodies in the gutter because soon they will be meaningless, worthless and forgotten. So I scribble with a pen all the things I couldn't say and hope it isn't legible to anybody else but me. I now know what they mean when they say a mirror never lies 'cause when I say "you're ugly" my reflection mouths it back. I'm starting to think that I am just like you. I said "there's something I must play you" so we sat through the record. All the clicks and pops and scratches punctuate my thoughts and make my broken verses seem coherent and rehearsed but that's just an illusion - a trick performed with words. I'm starting to think that I am just like you. Last night I sat here thinking, tonight I'll watch you dreaming. I'll stop the journey now.
