"Like" as written by Jarrod Douglas Montague, Michael Frederick De Wolf, Philip M. Lipscomb and Stephen Steele Richards....
You look like me
I'm sorry for you
You talk like me
I can't understand you
You think like me
You're fucking crazy
You want to be me
But that's ok because

You remind me of me
Softly
But only the good
Cause I'm just mean

Hanging by a thread for your honor
Just helps me to see inside myself
Hanging by a thread for your honor
Just helps me to see...

You act like me
You're embarrassing
You talk to me
But don't listen
You think like me
You're so damn crazy
You want to be me
But that's ok because

You remind me of me
Softly
But only the good
Cause I'm just mean

Hanging by a thread for your honor
Just helps me to see inside myself
Hanging by a thread for your honor
Just helps me to see...

When these memories become liquid dreams
Just like fantasies
And like fallen leaves I guess
All I need is to find my desires
And set out to acquire them

You look like me
I'm sorry for you
You think like me
But that's ok because

You remind me of me
Softly
But only the good
Cause I'm just mean

(Hanging by a thread for your honor
Just helps me to see inside myself)
Hanging by a thread for your honor
Just helps me to see...

    General CommentI think you can see someone better then you can see yourself sometimes. I also think it's because sometimes people open themselves up more to you then you do to yourself. Once someone is hanging out there just for their honor I think you can start to relate with someone and it brings out the good in yourself which I think is a specific person to him in this case.

    General Commentthis song is my favorite Taproot song.

    However, it can be interpreted in another way.

    This is, that he is addressing all the other rap-rock bands that are out there. Think about the lyrics. He's talking about how all these other bands have the same image that TapRoot does, but since they are doing that, then he moves on to find a new image and sound ("hanging by a thread for your honor just helps me to see inside myself).

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who acts like you, who is yer shadow in like.. Every way. And you reflect back on them... On what they do. And you don't like, so you don't like yerself. Or something, i don't know.

    General CommentIt's modesty defined...you're like me, and I'm sorry that someone else has to be like that. He's also putting himself in their shoes, and when he looks inside of them, he sees himself, and it shows him his desires, so he can set out to find them. This is an amazing song.

    General CommentI thought the song was a bit more about introspection. I imagine he is looking in a mirror and seeing himself and thinking about his own opinions of himself
