"Ordinary Man" as written by Benjamin Burnley, Aaron Fincke, Mark James Klepaski and Jeremy Hummel....
Cast away all the enemies of yesterday
to alleviate all the memories that come our way
there's a better life,
now you know that I am on your side
your beady eyes
burn a hole right through the back of mine
I am out of time

I'm an ordinary man
like everybody else
just a common counterfeit
I'm an ordinary man

hesitate while the world is just a step away
to recreate all that innocence that time can take
I am wide awake

I'm an ordinary man
like everybody else
just a common counterfeit
I'm an ordinary man

I'm an ordinary man
like everybody else
just a common counterfeit
I'm an ordinary man
I'm an ordinary man

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG IM IN JOURNALISM LISTENING TO THIS SONG AS I WRITE THIS!!
    hell yeah.
    cuz im fucking coooool.

    and i think that ben is trying to make a point that no matter where he travels with his band that in the end he's just like anybody else. and he wants people to understand that instead of calling him a sellout or something retarded like that.
