Barnacle Bill: Music

What It's Like Before

(Klinger/Naslas)
I raise my eyes and take a look at the world
And I'm glad I'm alive
Waking up to the sound of the war
And the signs that hypnotize

I can't connect with all the people I meet
And I'm cold and I'm so stressed
For peace of mind I'd return it in kind
And pray for your happiness

Some things are like that
Because the way things are
Seem like the way they've always been
And I am like that
Because the way I am
Seems like the way I've always been
And I can't remember what it's like before

There will come a day when the difference will be less
And it will seem like it could never have happened at all
Any other way

Some things are like that
Because the way things are
Seems like the way they've always been
And I am like that
Because the way I am
Seems like the way I've always been
And I can't remember what it's like
I can't remember what it's like
I can't remember what it's like
And you are like that
Because the way you are
Seems like the way you've always been
And you can't remember what it's like
You can't remember what it's like
You can't remember what it's like before
