"You Already Know What You Are" as written by Thomas H Jr Denney, Alexander Thomas Shelnutt, Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Neil S Westfall, Joshua Steven Woodard, Thomas H Jr Denney, Alexander Thomas Shelnutt, Jeremy Wade Mckinnon,...
They used to tell me
You got to choose a side
Now it's four years later
And they beg for advice
Don't trust the critic, he's a cynic
Make the call for yourself
This is my ten-step course to not be like everyone else

I know it's not the easiest route
And I know
It leaves you overflowing with doubt
But if you want it you can have it
Hope it's all that you dreamt
'Cause once you got it you're gonna get it
You won't be leaving this

You can't trust everyone you meet
They won't amount to anything
Go tell them
Go tell them it's not as simple as you think
You can't trust everyone you meet
They never meant that much to me
Go tell them
Go tell them it's not as simple as you think

Clenched fists held above me
You will never bring me to my knees
I said clenched fists held above me
You will never bring me to my knees
You'll get what you deserve

    They used to tell me you've got to choose a side
    Now it's four years later and they beg for advice
    Don't trust the critic he's a cynic make the call for yourself
    This is my 10 step course to not be like everyone else

    And I know
    It's not the easiest route
    And I know
    It leaves you overflowing with doubt
    But if you want it you can have it, hope it's all that you dreamt
    Cuz once you got it, youre gonna get it, I won't be leaving this

    You can't trust everyone you meet
    They won't amount to anything
    Go tell them, go tell them
    It's not as simple as you think
    You can't trust everyone you meet
    They never meant that much to me
    Go tell them, go tell them
    It's not as simple as you think

    Clenched fists held above me
    You will never bring me to my knees
    I SAID
    Clenched fists held above me
    You will never bring me to my knees

    You'll get what you deserve

    My InterpretationI think its about how people told them they can't be both Hardcore and Pop, but now people are trying to be like them.
