I don't need to be anything other than a prison guard's son,
I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son,
I don't have to be anyone other than the birth of two souls in one,
Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from.

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and I've peace of mind,
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be,
I don't wanna be anything other than me.

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn,
I'm surrounded by impostors everywhere I turn,
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn,
Am I the only one to notice?
I can't be the only one who's learned.

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and I've peace of mind,
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be,
I don't wanna be anything other than me.

Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave,
I came from the mountains,
The crust of creation,
My whole situation made from clay to stone,
And now I'm telling everybody.

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and I've peace of mind,
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be.

I don't wanna be anything other than me,
I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately,
All I have to do is think of me and I've peace of mind,
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wonder what I gotta do,
Or who I'm supposed to be,

I don't wanna be anything other than me,
I don't wanna be, hey yeah, hey yeah,
I don't wanna be, oh, oh, oh,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be anything other than me
