You can be what you want to be
They may try to say you’re no good
Never worry ‘bout what they may think
Cause you are responsible for only you

They may try to take away your freedom
Scold and mold you at the same time
But remember you be only you
And don’t let the system influence you

They don’t say what we need to know
The more they do the less we control
They don’t say what we need to know
The more they do the less we control

‘Cause when it comes to truth they cover it up
They keep makin’ the rules, keeping us in the dark
If they knock you down, get back on up
Don’t try to get by, try to move ahead

Peace is all that the people see
But bad news is all we hear about
Understanding is the only way
But they must first tell the truth about it

Complications along the way
Make you wonder if it’s all in vain
Is this dream promised to us all
Or just the wealthy and the one’s in power

‘Cause when it comes to truth they cover it up
They keep makin’ the rules, keeping us in the dark
If they knock you down, get back on up
Don’t try to get by, try to move ahead
