"Who Am I?" as written by and Paddy Byrne Karen Ann Poole....
Lying idle in my room, telling my thoughts to the moon:
Why do I always feel so unimportant?
To other egos my mind clings and inside these voices ring
That I'm just a carbon copy of everyone else

And now I'm searching out my own identity
Something down inside telling me that I'm like no one else but me
But as of yet I still don't know
Who is this guy that I am and for his life what does he have to show?
Who am I?
What am I for?

I wait for answers from the sky, the only audience I find
But no comfort finds my ears just silent mocking
And I know I was created but I just can't figure out why

And now I'm searching out my own identity
Something down inside telling me that I'm like no one else but me
But as of yet I still don't know
Who is this guy that I am and for his life what does he have to show?
Who am I?
What am I for?

Still searching. Who am I?
Some answers I don't ever find
I just want to know I have a place
Come from and return to dust,
But I don't want to feel that useless
I want to see something in me that is unique.
I just want to know. Who am I?
What am I for?

    General Commenti don't think so. This song is off of Craig's Brothers first LP called 'Homecoming', it's a great cd, buy it! However i think NOFX and/or Lawagon did a decent cover of this song.

    General CommentThis song writer is stuggling with his identidy as a human being. He does not want to take the Naturalist worldveiw that says that he is a pile of chemicals like everyone else with no purpose in life (the resolt of the idea that there is no spiritual world only a physical world). He wants to blieve that there is meaning and he is unique. The Christian faith/worldview provides this.

    General Commenti don't think they really covered it, i think it's just a wrong name on those download programs. any version you download will probably sound almost exactly like this version, minus quality differences. my 2 pesos: i think this song is simply about him not feeling excepted, and looking to god for an answer, or a reason as to why he was created. he's trying to find a reason to live, or perhaps his use in life.
