i used to be angry at the man
the one with the big frying pan
who takes all the meat
and leaves nothing to eat
for the poor with our
outstretched hands
but i am the man
i am the man
you say i'm the man
i am the man
i understand
i used to scared of the government
silencing voices of dissent
but the voices of scare folk
will never be heard
open your throat and sing like a bird
'cause in my own government
i am the president
yes it's my own government
i represent
stop pointing the finger
at yourself
look in the mirror to see
how your enemy fought
i used to think i was alone
motherless child
far from home
but the family i found
was in everyone
open your heart
it's time that you've come
home is the house you build
with your bones
this song is the house you build
with your bones
