I Don’t Want To Be

I don’t need to be anything other
Than a prison guard’s son
I don’t need to be anything other
Than a specialist’s son
I don’t have to be anyone other
Than the birth of two souls in one
Part of where I’m going
Is knowing where im coming from
I don’t want to be
Anything other than
What I’ve been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me
And I have peace of mind
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms
Wondering what I’ve got to do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t want to be
Anything other than me
I’m surrounded by liars
Everywhere I turn
I’m surrounded by imposters
Everywhere I turn
I’m surrounded by identity crisis
Everywhere I turn
Am I the only one who noticed
I can’t be the only one who’s learned
I don’t want to be
Anything other than
What I’ve been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me
And I have peace of mind
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms
Wondering what I’ve got to do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t want to be
Anything other than me
Oh
Can I have everyone’s attention please
If you’re not like this and that
You’re gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain
The crust of creation
My whole situation
Made from clay to stone
And now I’m telling everybody
I don’t want to be
Anything other than
What I’ve been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me
And I have peace of mind
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms
Wondering what I’ve got to do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t want to be
Anything other than me
I don’t wanna be
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I don’t want to be
Oh oh oh oh
I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be anything
Anything other than
Me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah
