I can remember when we first met
we really had some times
when the success started to kick in
life turned into a mess

Why can't we still be friends?
Why judge me for what I am?
Can we go back again?
I'm still the same man.

You figured out really who I am
you'll bet your life on that
why can't you see me for what I am
where human don't forget that (that)

Why can't we still be friends?
Why judge me for what I am?
Can we go back again?
I'm still the same man.

Stand around, don't follow me around
playing me like a clown
facing life not real (not real)
life not real (not real)
life not real (not real)

Why can't we still be friends?
Why judge me for what I am?
Can we go back again?
I'm still the same man.

SAME man!! (4x)

    General CommentThis song is cool. I can relate to this song. I had a friend who was like my shadow. Then in Jr. High, I was accepted into accelerated classes and he wasn't. Now he hates me for it. Not there best song, but it still kicks ass. By the way, It's on the U.K. single of "Got the Life". I recomend downloading it if you can't get it.

    General CommentI either see this song as being about how a guy and a girl have something really special and good going on together, but then he becomes successful in a big way [I.E. Getting in to a band and the band making it big] and the girl thinking that he doesn't put her first any more and think of her before money, fame and that junk or he's being an ass to her now. Second theory: Two friends grow apart for various reasons. One misses the other and wants to repair the damage, but the other rejects this and basically has a fuck-off attitude towards him. I relate easily. I had a friend in junior high who later became my boyfriend and then just a friend again who said that I had changed and was not myself any more, but all that I ever tried to do was be nice to him so I have like no fucking clue what the hell was up his ass. Hmmm... On second thought, I don't wanna know. Lol.

    General CommentActually it's not about the Deftones, Donnie T. Last year they did (Korn and Chino) Wicked together during The Family Values Tour. But the song is pretty obvious. Later

    General CommentThe way I look at is that it's about somebody who is gay and came out to a friend, and now the friend hates him. Not saying that's what it IS about, but I interpret it that way.
