The word SAME has two meanings: "alike in kind" or "unchanged" both of those definitions apply to this song. As the Human race we are all homo-sapiens, therefore "alike in kind"..and nothing has really changed in our actions towards each other..at least not since I've been alive..another blues song?

I CAN'T TAKE IT, IT'S DRIVIN ME CRAZY

FEELS LIKE THE SAME OLD PAIN

THE MORE THE WORLD APPEARS TO CHANGE

THE MORE IT STAYS THE SAME

 

I WATCH THE NEWS MOST EVERY NIGHT

THE STORYS NEVER CHANGE

THE FACES DO, THE PEOPLE DON'T

MAN, TO ME THAT SEEMS SO STRANGE

                          CHORUS

WE'RE STILL, WE'RE STILL THE SAME

THIS WORLD CAN'T SEEM TO CHANGE

 

I PLAYED THE PARK IN 69

OR WAS IT 68

I SAW THE HIPPIES, I SAW THE PIGS

I WATCHED LOVE DIE IN THE HAIGHT

                           CHORUS

WE'RE STILL, WE'RE STILL THE SAME

THIS WORLD CAN'T SEEM TO CHANGE

                              SOLO

                           CHORUS

WE'RE STILL, WE'RE STILL THE SAME

THE WORLD CAN'T SEEM TO CHANGE

IT'S STILL, IT'S STILL THE SAME

IT'S THE SAME, IT'S THE SAME

IT'S A SHAME, IT'S THE SAME

IT'S SO LAME, IT'S INSANE, IT'S THE SAME

IT'S THE SAME, IT'S THE SAME,

AND THE WHOLE WORLDS TO BLAME

FOR THE MISERY, HUNGER AND PAIN

IT'S INSANE AND A SHAME

THAT THE CHANGE NEVER CAME

IT'S SO LAME, IT'S A SHAME, ITS INSANE

NOW THE WORLD IS SO LOST

THAT NO MATTER THE COST

GOTTA CHANGE

GOTTA CHANGE

GOTTA CHANGE

WERE THE SAME

IN OUR PAIN

WE'RE THE SAME
