"Become What You Are" as written by Ronald Carson Cox, David Vassalotti and Patrick Brady....
The music started
I realized it was all a lie
The guitars were ringing out
Last year's punk

No I couldn't bear the burden
So I threw it all away
I left my home and all my friends behind

Oh make me young again
and find a way to mend this broken heart
But it don't want me there singing about love anymore
It just wants to sleep out in the park

But it don't really matter what I say
You're just going to twist it anyway
Do you even listen to my words?
You just want to memorize the chords

I'm alone again because
All I really want's the truth
It's so rare to find that anywhere these days

An honest arrow caught my shoulder
in a sea of New York curves
I'll try to play the part of celebrity

Oh it's a headache
To walk that way
I was dressed up in all the wrong clothes
Oh do you remember, what you were last year?
Do you remember your former roles?

But it don't seem to matter who I am
No one seems to want to understand that
I'm my mother's son
I'm a rolling stone
I don't want anything
I have to own

Help me run and hide baby
Help me run and hide
I'm terrified
Help me run and hide
From the rest of the world
