more or less the same

When I left my home and my family, I was no more than a boy/In the company of strangers/In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared/Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters, where the ragged people go/Looking for the places only they would know.
Now the years are rolling by me, they are rockin' even me/I am older than I once was, and younger than I'll be, that's not unusual/No it isn't strange, after changes upon changes, we are more or less the same/After changes we are more or less the same.
