"Inner Self" as written by Igor Cavalera, Massimiliano A. Cavalera, Andreas Rudolf Kisser and Paulo Xisto Jr. Pinto....
Walking these dirty streets
With hate in my mind
Feeling the scorn of the world
I won't follow your rules

Blame and lies, contradictions arise
Blame and lies, contradictions arise
Nonconformity in my inner self
Only I guide my inner self

I won't change my way
It has to be this way
I live my life for myself
Forget your filthy ways

Blame and lies, contradictions arise
Blame and lies, contradictions arise
Nobody will change my way
Life betrays, but I keep on going

There's no light, but there's hope
Crushing oppression, I win
Betraying and playing dirty, you think you'll win
But someday you'll fall, and I'll be waiting

Laughs of an insane man, you'll hear
Personality is my weapon against your envy
Walking these dirty streets
With hate in my mind

Feeling the scorn of the world
I won't follow your rules
Nonconformity in my inner self
Only I guide my inner self

    General CommentThis song is probably about how the Government has put imaginary politicial like "standerds" for us to meet and this song clearly rebels from their "opression" and say their not pleasing anyone but themselves, friends, and family.

    General CommentIt's about following your own path in life.
    Living life as your own man. Not a slave to man, government, family expectations. The singer says only he will guide his life, and he won't change his ways. Lead never follow.
