"They Don't Own Me" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
Is it true what they say?
Nothing in life is free
Are you looking this way
Surely this can't be

I know that you
Ain't like the other ones
March to a different beat, babe
Banging a different drum

I think I told you before that
They don't
They don't own me
I think I told you before that
They don't
They don't own me

I ain't playing their games
I am nobody's fool
Yeah, I know how it feels
I broke those rules

Are you walking with me?
Or are you running with them?
Are you ever free?
Is this something that you understand?

I think I told you before that
They don't
They don't own me
I think I told you before that
They don't
They don't own me

They don't
They don't own me

Is it really that strange
To try and find some peace?
Is it so opaque
That you still can't see?

Them, right up above
I wonder what they can hear
I guess we all mess up, baby
Mmm, we're here, then disappear

I think I told you before that
They don't
They don't own me
I think I told you before that
They don't
They don't own me

I think I told you before that
They don't
They don't own me
I think I told you before, yeah
They don't
They don't own me

    My InterpretationBest song of the album These People.

    I think that Lord Ashcroft is talking about society rules... "don't be part of it", follow your own rules (in the rigth way).

    This sentence "I am nobody's fool" is so true and have a lot of sence. you are the one that make decisions in yor life to build a future, nobody can't tell you what to do.
