"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 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 because 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
We're burning bridges down to the fire below
Time to let it go
No you won't
So maybe reasons why
I'm 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 because 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
So maybe reasons why
I'm 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 because 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

    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
