you cant accept me for..who i am
i tried so hard to get you to understand
i dont know..if i can take this pain anymore
kuz my hearts been torn
what did i do to be treated this way
you keep beating me down
but i still ask you to stay
and i know
that i wanna be myself
but you want me to be someone else

its just the same thing ( same thing )
how you try to change me ( change me )
so tell me what you want from me
why cant you let me be

i just cant go on takin all this abuse
no matter what i do its never enough for you
and i know
im disgusted by the way that you think of me
you make me do things that i dont want to do
and you dont give a damn
about what you put me through
and i know
you need to face the truth that im not like you

its just the same thing ( same thing )
how you try to change me ( change me )
so tell me what you want from me
why cant you let me be

its just the same thing ( same thing )
how you try to change me ( change me )
so tell me what you want from me
why cant you let me be

im gonna do what i wanna do
not what you tell me to
you say look at other people as this excuse
drop the attitude
kuz the damn abuse
you keep playing with me
youll see what i do
what do you get outta messin with me
kuz im just tryin to do my own thing
you still try to take everything i got
and it just wont stop

so tell me what you wanted from me
or whats the reason that you wont let me be
i keep telling you i wont give in again
no one can change me because of who i am

its just the same thing ( same thing )
how you try to change me ( change me )
so tell me what you want from me
why cant you let me be

its just the same thing ( same thing )
how you try to change me ( change me )
so tell me what you want from me
why cant you let me be

same thing ( same thing )

    General CommentThis song is about his woman tryin to keep him on a leash makin him do what she wants and not lettin him be. and how he's had enough of her shit, and hes not gonna change, because he is who he is. I saw these dudes on Ozzfest last year. they were damn awesome. I met the whole band afterward and they all autographed my cd of theirs, they were totally nice. the singer was wearin sweet fuzzy pants like in the picture on the back of the cd case.

    General CommentGhostwishing must be wishing for an ass-whupping. Calm the hell down and let other people have their interpretations, I don't know if Iceman's right or not, but he makes enough sense. Stop acting like Kelly Osbourne.

    General CommentHay GhostWishingare you from the Ft. Myers/Cape Coral area?
    B/c if you are than I know why you jumped up on Iceman_Cometh.
    If not there was no call for that.
    But you are right Tripp said that the was about his unsupportive parents.
    "You can’t accept me for. Who I am
    I tried so hard to get you to understand”
    How many times have we all thought this about our own parents at lest one time in our life.
