Well, I know I'm past that age
But I've got growing pains again
It's not that physical this time, I know
It's something from within
It hurts to think about the friends and family
I had to leave behind
When my undeveloped body
Got stuck with an older mind

When my playtime got cut short
Just like everybody else's did
I had to leave that kid behind
And suffer this extended adolescence

I'm at the age where society says I should be a man
But I don't think I can, don't want to be a man
I can't ignore the fact: the more I see, the less I understand
I guess I should have a plan, I don't want to be a man

So now my soul is duct-taped to this body
Whose life will someday end
I've found a limited amount of answers
But the questions never end

And my ineptitude is starting to show
The pain continues to grow
As I trip over my words again and again and again and again and again
But I'm determined not to settle for the mess
That sorrows me, hate and fear and all the rest
Will still go on but without me!

I don't want to be a man, I don't want to be a man!
So many things I'm supposed to be
But they've got nothing to do with me!
I don't want to be a man!
I don't want to be a man!
I don't want to be a man!
