Did it make you feel good to break me down?
Did it make you feel good to take me down?
Was life getting to you? Was it all you knew to do?
What kind of comfort did you feel
By making me less than you?

Did it make you feel good to know
That your attempt to bring me down
Was beginning to control my perception of self?
And that’s what you wanted right?
To manipulate my thinking
And dominate what I feel like

Tap into my thinking, tap into my will
What causes human motives to be so ill?
You pushed a man looking to make him react
Then you stand there smirking satisfied that I snapped

I’m no better than you, you’re no better than me
We’re just flesh and bone looking for some identity
I’m no better than you, you’re no better than me
We’re just flesh and bone looking for some security

Did it make me feel good to break you down?
Did it make me feel good to take you down?
What did it do for me to put your respect on the line?
By taking yours did I find it to build mine?

Hold my head high from the outcome
How come when I’m doing things I used to run from?
Scrap the pitchfork horns and animated terror
Looked in the mirror and found evil standing right there

I guess this is the point when you see Satan in you
No form of retaliation was worth hating you
I take that view and then I eat my words too
I guess all along I was no better than you

I’m no better than you, you’re no better than me
We’re just flesh and bone looking for some identity
I’m no better than you, you’re no better than me
We’re just flesh and bone looking for some security

Some want peace and some want war
So many hate without knowing what for
Some are naturally rich but spiritually poor
Some have so much but would kill for more

Some are unsure, so they front hardcore
And try to dominate those that make them insecure
And I’ve been on both sides before
A defensive offender stripped down to the core

I’m no better than you, you’re no better than me
We’re just flesh and bone looking for some identity
I’m no better than you, you’re no better than me
We’re just flesh and bone looking for some security
