Not the Same (live at the Calvin Theare)

Original Artist: Ben Folds

(this is a true story, and its, um, it's about, I don't really know what it means, but its about, it's this guy we knew that climbed up a tree at a party, on acid, and he stayed up the tree, tripping all night long, and in the morning, everyone had gone home, he came down from the tree and he was a born again Christian, its true. It's where religion and drugs meet back on the other side.)

You took a trip
and climbed a tree
at Robert Sledge's party

and there you stayed
'till morning came
and you were not the same after that

you gave your life
to Jesus Chirst
and after all your friends went home
you came down
you looked around

and you were not the same after that
and you were not the same after that
and you were not the same after that

you see them drop like flies
from the bright sunny skies
they come knocking at your door
with this look in their eyes
you got one good trick
and you're hanging on, your hanging on
to it

you took the word
and made it heard
and eased the people's after that

you were idolized
imortalized
and you were not the same after that

walking tall
you bought it all
and you were not the same after that
till someone died
on the waterslide
and you were not the same the same

you see them drop like flies
from the bright sunny skies
they come knocking at your door
with this look in their eyes
you got one good trick
and you're hanging on, you're hanging on
to it

you see them drop like flies
from the bright sunny skies
they come knocking at your door
with this look in their eyes
you've got one good trick
and you're hanging on
you're hanging on
you're hanging on
