My mind is full of ideas
About life and living here
And now I've reached my 19th year
Without love or a chance to shed a tear

People want me to be the man I don't wanna be
People want me to be the man I don't wanna be
People want me to be the man I don't wanna be

I was taught to rely on work
To be a responsible, family minded jerk
To pay the bills and buy the food
To study hard and to make good

People want me to be the man I don't wanna be
People want me to be the man I don't wanna be

We've realized your state
You sympathize with your mistake
The situation is clear to our eyes
Caught in society's demise

People want me to be the man I don't wanna be
People want me to be the man I don't wanna be

I've come, I've come on a mission
Requiring total submission
With the merciful ear to lend
Mind's eyes, hand to hand

People want me to be the man I don't wanna be
People want me to be the man I don't wanna be
People want me to be the man I don't wanna be
People want me to be the man I can't be
