"What I Am" as written by Edie Arlisa Brickell, Kenneth Neil Withrow, John Bradley Houser, John Walter Bush and Brandon Aly....
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean

Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box
Religion is the smile on a dog
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean, d-do ya?

choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?

I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean

Philosophy, is a walk on the slippery rocks
Religion is a light in a fog
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know, if you know what I mean, d-do ya?

Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what you are
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?

now now now now
I say, I say, I say
I do hey-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-ay

Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep (repeat 4 times)
don't let me get to deep (repeat 4 times)
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what you are
What I am is what I am
You what you are or what?
(repeat to fade)

    General CommentI like it! And I can't get over thinking that it's ironic in some way that I just haven't realized yet ; )
