You want prosperity
For yourself, but not for me.
Somehow you just can't see
We're in this collectively.

You think that freedom is
A drastic severance
From your past relations
Just a quest for new bargains.

We're not the same person,
We're not the same person.
Don't even wanna know.
Wo-o-oh.

Don't need no good advice
Nor shoddy merchandise,
I'm the suspect device
Beaten down, unable to strike.

We're not the same person,
We're not the same person.
Don't even wanna know.
Wo-o-oh.

And the sun comes over us again,
We lament, we pine, and we rescind
And we ask for understanding,
But aren't we the stingy ones indeed
When it's needed from us in the end?

We watch the days go by,
Compete and then we die.
So few ever ask why,
But so many just abuse the design.

We're not the same person,
We're not the same person.
Don't even wanna know.
Wo-o-oh.
