"Same Man I Was Before" as written by and Danny Elfman....
I'm not the same man I was before
I haven't changed my perception
I haven't lost my protection
I haven't lost, haven't lost, haven't lost
What I have, lost intentions

Two by two coming through the door
(Singing like a bird)
Boys and girls voices joined in song
(Voices in the air)
Fire crackers making so much noise
(Flying in the air)
They all start yelling at me
. . . . . Everything you do is wrong

I'm not the same boy I was before
But I've not changed my desires
I've not extinguished the fires
I haven't lost wide eyed wonder
I haven't lost, haven't lost, haven't lost
The stupid fear of thunder

Two by two walking hand in hand
(Walkin' in the air)
The bone come marching from the promised land
(Comes from everywhere)
Their voices carry like the sound of glass
(Breaking on the ground)
It burns my ears when they sing
. . . . . Everything you do is wrong

I'm not the same ghost I was before
But I still converse with the spirits
When people talk I don't hear it
I walk through doors when no one sees me
I disappear, I disappear, disappear
Whenever it may please me

    General CommentAgreed. Such a good song, and I think it's about how he's kind of lost in his identity. He feels different, older maybe, but he hasn't changed his views or the way he sees the world. He still sees it through the wide eyes of a little boy, but he's no longer a kid and isn't quite sure how to handle it.

    General CommentGod, this is a good song. I think it's about maturity, but I'm not sure.
