Sometimes you don't understand
Sometimes I am what I am
Sometimes I just can't be
Everything you hoped I'd be
And sometimes I wish that you could see

I'm not like you I'm not like them
I won't pretend

I am what I am

Sometimes I wish that we
Could agree to disagree
Sometimes I wish that you could see what I see
This is who I am
I've always been
And I don't think you'll ever understand

Fuck you I am what I am

You don't understand
I am what I am
And I don't think you'll ever understand

Fuck you I am what I am

    General CommentTake me for what I am.

    Just like david311freak said, you got me so take me for who I am. That's all you're going to get.

    Man, I love this song. It just pushes you to the edge, remembering every single instance of your life that someone made you do something that by their standards deemed right.

    Break the mold, folks. Otherwise you got Paris Hilton to live up to.

    General Commentamazing song. love it. i agree with chino69...this song really does push you to the edge!! i CAN'T STAND IT when someone wants you to do something just b/c in their eyes and according to their standards it's the right choice to make or it's the right thing to do. I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT!! IT MAKES ME JUST WANNA SCREAM AT THE TOP OF MY FREAKIN' LUNGS!!!!!

    General CommentVery simple. Be who you are, and don't conform to ANYONE's standards or expectations. Don't change who you are to appease anybody.

    General CommentEdsel wrote this song because he's a very very controversial character.He wants to legalize drugs and prostitution to raise the economy so he comes off as crazy and sometimes an asshole but basically this songs a big 'fuck you i am what i am' and he cant change that because thats him and i respect that and i think everyone should because even if they dont agree with him he has the balls to say what he thinks even if that means people hating him.
    hes my hero,lmao ^.^
