Somebody That I Used To Know

Gotye - (dBerrie Remix)

it wasn't at all how he imagined it would be. there wasn't long delayed seconds that seemed like hours...no, it just happened. fast. without him even realizing that had happened. he heard it from out of his right ear, he heard exactly what he was affraid of hearing. that what he was expecting, was, in fact, true.
that's how he felt, that's the way it was, and that's the way it was always gonna be.
he had thought, believed, deep in his heart, that things had changed, but, nah, that was just a momentary flash in the pan.
things would never be the same way they were, people's perceptions and attitudes toward him were altered...he was the rebel, and it was, unfortunately, without a cause. it was just so deep, inbred in him, that he knew no other way.
the cold wated splashed his face again, slapping it into awake mode.
as his hands pushed the water toward his ears, he caught a glimpse of himself in the dimly lit filthy mirror in front of him, and by the time his face was straight on to his reflection, he saw it, and what he saw, he liked. the person looking back was indeed him, but it was him another lifetime ago...the man with the sunken cheeks and the bags under his eyes was someone he knew all too well, he remembered every line, could recall every blemish and dark circle. but when he looked again, it wasn't the person he expected....it was somebody, somebody he really felt for, somebody who had been through ten world wars, and though he knew this guy, he also knew that this man had fought his last battle, climbed his last hill, and that beat up tired man in front of him was just somebody that he used to know...
he smiled, and walked away never looking back.
