they said he'd been in for quite a while.
when they found him by the riverside.
those bones won't be identified.
i saw a man the other night.
yeah he looked just like a lookalike.
of the man that i had left to die

    General Commentto me, its about leaving your old self behind in favor of something better (or at least different). you are making a clean break, going somewhere (new place, new group of friends, etc) where even your bones can't be identified. or maybe you're going to be so different you don't even look like your old self at all.

    as expected, however, the transformation was short-lived. the man who looked just like the lookalike is yourself, as you are unable to maintain the radical change you wanted so desperately just a few nights before.
