I don't need to be anything other than a prison guards son
I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other than a birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and my peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be, I don't wanna be anything other than me

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by impostors everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one to notice? I can't be the only one who's learned

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and my peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be, I don't wanna be anything other than me

Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain, the crust of creation
My whole situation made from clay to stone and now I'm telling everybody

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and my peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta to do
Or who I'm supposed to be, I don't wanna be anything other than me

I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, no
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be anything
Anything other than me

I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be
