Day 163: “Just Like Everybody” – Ben Moody

!!!ITALIAN!!!

Maybe the most expert in our audience will remember him as the ex-guitarist of Evanescence. It was long ago, during 2003, when he had to broke up with Amy Lee and the band due to some health problems.

And on 2009, after several very important collaboration (Anastacia, Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne…), we finally have the release of All For This, first solo album by Ben Moody. American rock, more Daughtry than Evanescence, and maybe that’s why it sounds a bit more expressive and intimate, as today’s song shows quite well.

“Just Like Everybody” is the last song of the album, and it  talks about something we know very well, but it’s always actual: the mask. How we really are, how others think we are. The guilty for our own “role” to act day after day.
And the last sentence, awakening coscience: it’s just life, everybody do the same. Hana Pestle appears aswell in the album as backing vocals, and if you like her style you should definitely check her new EP “For The Sky“.

Ben Moody hasn’t been quiet either. Together with the solo career, the singer/guitarist is also developing the project called We Are The Fallen, band that released the album “Tear The World Down” (2010) and play with Him during their american tournéé

So many plans. While we’re waiting to hear more by them, let’s listen to today’s song!!

Just Like Everybody – Lyrics

Well I guess I lied,
I don’t have much in common with the world outside.
No one really knows how much I have to hide.
With that I’m really very ugly deep inside,
I wish I was just like everybody.

Nothing changes, I wish I didn’t have to tell a lie today,
But I know no one could ever love me anyway,
And any good you get from me is just the more I pray.
I wish I was just like everybody.

I, I, I’m so afraid
I, I, I’m so afraid…

Well it seems,
I’m no longer a child and this is not a game.
I see so many suffering,in time to play
But underneath my eyes at least, I’m sick with shame,
I wish I was just like everybody.

So turn away,I wish I could’ve saved you
From the pain I bring.
But there’s no truth behind the pretty songs I sing,
I’m not sure I ever believed, anything.
I wish I was just like everybody.

I, I, I’m so afraid
I, I, I’m so afraid…

Well I guess I lied,
I wear the same old mask,as everyone outside .
And everybody knows about the shame I hide
That I’m really very ugly deep inside.
I’m so, afraid.
I’m so, afraid!
I’m so afraid…

I’m just like everybody.
