"For Want Of A Better World" as written by and Christian Ignatiou Brian John Barry....
Step.
Step back, step away,
Kindly stay the fuck away from me,
What I am is what I am.

Let me live as I please, more than just a name,
Number, pawn, puppet, fuck it.
I'm a man, person, look, see, closer please, touch, feel,
Flesh, yes real, like you I bleed, I hurt, I touch, I fuck, I need.

I possess what you need, individuality, often heard of, rarely seen.
Let me come clean.
You can't take this away from me,
You can't take this away from me,

You can't take this away from me,
You can't take this away!
Step back, keep away, keep yourself to yourself
Your opinion on a shelf, your presence isn't welcome, but felt,

Never tasted life, just smelt. Folded rather than gamble,
Deal with what was dealt. Bitterness felt.
Sucked into a circle of fools and tools and rules.
Wanting all to conform to the norm and lose.

Submit to fit, fuck that, suck this.
Complacement like pigs in shit. Waist high and you still sit.
You can't take this away from me,
You can't take this away from me,

You can't take this away from me,
You can't take this away!
You!

You!
You!
You!
Wide awake, I'm a step ahead of all of you.

I cannot understand your narrow minded attitude.
Step beside me, stand beside me fool.
You'll always be a number,
Always be another tool.

Not me, not me, not me, not this boy.
Never gonna bend, never gonna comply.
Not me, not me, not me, not this boy.
Step right down to this.

Know, know that you are nobody, nobody, nothing to me.
Brother, my ass, not fit to be, and never will be.
Love thy sister, brother.
Respect for one another.

Nice dream, but where have you been?
Another planet it would seem.
Come back down to earth, let me show you what I've seen.
I hurt, I touch, I fuck, I need.

I possess what you need,
I possess what you need,
I possess what you need,
I possess what you need,

I possess what you need!
You can't take this away from me,
You can't take this away from me,
You can't take this away from me,

You can't take this away from me.
You can't take this away from me,
You can't take this away from me.
You can't take this away from me,

You can't take this away!

    General CommentShouting out to the who ever it is which is trying to take away your individuality, usualy in Yap's case it's the establishment, he's also saying that everyone else should do what they like and not to conform like they do.
