I take life for granted made mistakes in the past
Don't want to harbour so much hate in my heart [You feel me?]
Found my way through dark
And only by closing my open eyes and taking a chance
I wanna make my family proud
And show those that I love that I ain't standing round
I hate backing down, hate lashing out
Hate that I hate so much - what is this hate rant about?
I don't wanna be this negative person
Pessimistic, perfectionist obsessively working
Always anxiety ridden
It's like my mind's in Rhyme Asylum inside of a prison
It's a blessing and a curse
I just want us heard to get the respect that we deserve
I need to stop and breathe
Cos in reality there ain't nothing stopping me be what I wanna be

Don't make me be, don't make me be
Don't make me be, don't make me be

I'ma go it alone, on my own rowing this boat,
No-one to throw me a rope
Feel like I'm lost at sea
Tryna make waves, on this endless expanse of monotony
And I gotta be what I wanna be
Or else it's like telling my heart not to beat
Telling my lungs not to breathe
Inspirations an island just beyond my reach
Chances are few and far between
On an ocean with nowhere to plant my seeds
And you reap what you sow
It's getting dark, I keep an eye on my beacon of hope
Hope in every vein and capillary
My message in a bottle is my name on the pages of history
I got two ores
One named determination and the others name is ability

Don't make me be, don't make me be
Don't make me be, don't make me be

This me ain't the way that I wanna be
Now I know its the way that I gotta be
I've had my heart broken before
Another persons actions controlling my emotions and thought
Love is a battlefield - I'm a soldier at war
People saying "I don't know him no more"
The old me's dead and gone, I got away with murdering him
So my split personality holding the fort
Now I gotta look deep, my older said
Don't regret anything that makes you smile that's how it should be
And so I took heed
Now I love my life, a different guy but miss the nights I could sleep
Thinking isn't it funny
I used to be in control but I'm driven by women and money
In this eternal search for a pot of gold
Where I've lost my soul and my hearts gotten cold

Don't make me be, don't make me be
Don't make me be, don't make me be
