"I Am That I Am" as written by and Peter Tosh....
I'm not in this world
To live up to your expectations
Neither are you here to live up to mine, yeah

I don't owe no one
No obligation
No, I don't mean none
So everything is fine, fine

I said, I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I am that I am
I am, I am, I am

Don't underestimate
My ability
Don't definite my character
Don't belittle my authority
It's time you recognized my quality

I said, I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I said, I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I am that I am
I am, I am, I am

Learn to love
To love your brother
Don't covet your neighbor

Flee from the city
It's getting shitty
It is full of out-a-quity

I said, I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I am that I am
I am, I am, I am
I am that I am
I am, I am, I am

I am the rock of the ages
You cannot move I at all
I am the son of lightning
You cannot move I at all
Son of Jacob
Cannot move me at all
I am the son of Moses
You can't move I at all
I am the son of David
You cannot move I at all

I am a firm ripe diamond
You cannot move I at all
You could a shed more tears
You cannot move I at all

You could a full of evil
You cannot move I at all
You could a try more nuttin'
You cannot move I at all

And you can try make a something
That can't move I at all
And could a come with ism
You can't move I at all

And could come with skism
That can't move I at all

    General CommentThis first verse is clearly inspired by the Gestalt-therapy.

    General Commentthis songs about how peter tosh is god and so are you
    gnostic tilt is rastafarianism

    i am that iam in hebrew is yaweh or jahova or however you wanna pronounce it
    and of course theres the whole lineage of the prohpets part

    General Commentit's pretty clear what he's sayin in the first half the song, that he doesn't owe anyone and he's equal to everyone that finds themselves above him.
    The second part is well....he is that he is.
