I used to think of myself as a soldier
Holding his own against impossible odds
Badly outnumbered and caught
In a crossfire of devils and gods

All I ever wanted to be was free
All I ever looked for was what was within my eyes to see
Oh but these days are just like you and me
Oh but these days are just like you and me

You used to be something I could believe in
How could you let me forsake myself so
You used to think of your life
As a riddle with no answer known

All you ever wanted to be was free
All you ever looked for was what was within your sights to see
Oh but these days are just like you and me
Oh but these days are just like you and me

We used to live like there was no tomorrow
Tasting our trials a day at a time
Crying for justice and laughing at sorrow
Such innocent crimes

All we ever wanted to be was free
All we ever looked for was what was within our sights to see
Oh but these days are just like you and me
Oh but these days are just like you and me
Just like you and me
You know they're just like you and me
