The strings that pull at everyone else
The motion taking everyone else
The shadow cast by everyone else
The first the last and everyone else

And in a way I’ve stayed like everyone else
And in a way we’re all like everyone else

The strings that pull at nobody else
The motion taking nobody else
The shadow cast by nobody else
There’s the first and the last and nobody else

And in a way I’ve stayed like nobody else
And in a way we’re all like nobody else

Notes
I think Identity is a subject that all of these songs deal with somehow, however directly or indirectly. This is a piece about the simple binary of self and other, and the nagging question of our relative uniqueness. The contradictory thoughts “I am like everyone,” and “I am like no one” seem both to be equally freeing and suffocating. The freedom of individuality is also the isolation of uniqueness. The mundanity of sameness is also liberty from prejudice. Sometimes we all feel like we stick out like sore thumbs. Other times we all feel like we are unable to distinguish ourselves. Somewhere in the gravity of these continuums lies the self. A thing to ponder with a simple song.
