Your mind tells you that you've lost your confidence
You're drifting and you don't believe in anyone
To lose what little you have left to be proud of
Afraid you can't do this again

You said that nothing comes in between us
And the way of getting things we wanted done
Then enissophobia helps you under it's influence
Until you compromise your style

Everything about you has been one big charade
What will you do now, that the well's run dry
To sell-out all your friends and stab them in the back
It's something that you are and something that I'm not

When you forced me into doing what you love
Mark my words, no one loves you very much
And when you tried to change me and tried to replace me
I, I couldn't help but end the stay with you

Being in the front can only last so long
To watch you sit, stare as a child returns
To choke out the voice that told you money and the fame
Would fill the grave that you dug for yourself

Unlike you, I'm no vision to myself, let's you forget
You didn't ever make metal, buddy, metal made you
To crush and roll over everyone along the way
Is something that you are, something that I'm not

A stranger to yourself, ha, you've pissed me off again
I won't be driven by your needs anymore
What you've become to do or be is clear to see for me
It's something that you are, something I'm not

It makes me sick to hear you say you love me
I know you only love what I can do for you
If you were the one that was leading a charge
Would you notice if I missed a day or two

We all laughed at the parodies that you've become
Now you're paid, slowly payback has begun
So I send my resignation or in your words, betrayal
Before it gets much worse in your self-sabotage

Something I'm not
Something that you are
Something I'm not

Something I'm not
Something that you are
Oh something I'm not
Something that you are
Something I'm not yet

Mustaine, Dave
