"People Like Me, We Just Don't Play" as written by Brian Mcternan, Bradley Walden and Ernest White....
I can feel you leaving.
I can see you running out.
It’s faith.
(Help me)
I can feel you leaving.
It's a tale of what I don't have.
The will to say,
The filth that I became.

So maybe reasons why
I'm losing you, losing you
Are the reasons I can't hide.
But I can't stop running no.

And I fall asleep in the safest places I can find.
I'm losing religion 'cause I can't find a God that's mine.
And so it's back to the old me,
Killing you slowly and I'm fine.

I can feel you leaving.
I can (Ahh, fuck it.)

We're burning bridges down to the fire below.
Time to let it go.
No you won't.

Maybe reasons why
I'm losing you, losing you
Are the reasons I can't hide.
But I can't stop running.

And I fall asleep in the safest places I can find.
I'm losing religion 'cause I can't find a God that's mine
And so it's back to the old me,
Killing you slowly and I'm fine.

Show me something.
Shake me from my haze.
When I need your help.
You never saw me coming no.
Here in my personal hell.

Maybe reasons why
I'm losing you, losing you
Are the reasons I can't hide.
But I can't stop running.

And I fall asleep in the safest places I can find.
I'm losing religion 'cause I can't find a God that's mine tonight
I fall asleep in...
I fall asleep in...
I fall asleep in the safest places I can find.
And so it's back to the old me,
Killing you slowly

    General Comment"I think this song is, in some ways, an unsure apology with a hint of self-reflection. Telling someone you know how awful a person you are, but you don't care. You don't care, but you're still sorry. Or at least you say you're sorry, because you feel it’s necessary. You don't know if you mean it. You’ve lost religion, because you can't find a god that’s yours. It's a metaphor for needing comfort in someone, but it never lasts long enough because you wind up not believing in it. Damn, I wasn't sure what this song was about until just now." - Bradley
