Cold breeze, blow through me
Blow out these dead leaves, and toss 'em to the ground
Cold breeze, blow through these twisted tattered branches, And bend 'em back around

I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)

My heart is shattered
Blackened to the core, and set in stone
Frozen in motion, jump into the fire now, today to die alone

I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)

Cold breeze, surround me
Waken through my mind and soul
Take control and make me whole
Cold breeze, blow through me
Rip the leaves away from my eyes
And let my vision go!

I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)
I wanna be a man (I wanna be)

    General CommentI downloaded this song....can't find any site that says it's a sublime song, but the mp3 is named "sublime - be a man (very rare)". It's about cutting through the crap and just taking responsibility for yourself and being a good person.

    General CommentThis isn't Sublime, it might be from one of the member's older bands or something. Someone told me it might be a song from the band Sligtly Stoopid, I dont know. The song kicks ass tho.

    General CommentI agree that it's not likely a sublime song. I love sublime and it definitely doesn't sound like anything else they did. I suppose my intention in posting the lyrics was to see if anyone knew who it actually was because this is a great song. I checked out Slightly Stoopid and it doesn't look like they did it. Any other ideas? Imagine that; a great song and an anonymous artist? Could it be the soggy bottom boys?

    General CommentThis is not Sublime or Slightly Stoopid and doesn't sound like any Juice Bros song I've ever heard, peedeesjp you should remove it.

    General Commentokay someone said the guitar doesnt sound like sublime. but just so you know sublime does a lot of punk, and it's DEFINATELY not slightly stoopid, well, atleast its not miles or kyle singing. it sounds more like brad than them. idk it could be sublime but i'm not sure. i like it though

    General CommentThis song is absolutely, positively not Sublime. I logged on here hoping, by now, someone would have taken credit for it. I'm really curious about who does this song. I don't think it's anyone related to Sublime either. It was everywhere back in the Napster days, when unknown bands (or fans of unknown bands) would label a song with a popular artist in order to get downloads. Unfortunately, the song never seemed to be labeled with the real artist's band name. If anyone finds the answer, I'd love to know.
