The Manual Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

They say anything is possible
And life's just another obstacle
Well, show me the manual
And the man responsible

Yeah, I went lookin' for answers in the hospital
And came back with a pocket full
When I stole the manual
And killed the man responsible

Now we all make mistakes
But those mistakes just make us who we are
And not who we choose to be
(No)

My faith got misplaced
Somewhere between a superstar
(Hey)
And the boy that I used to be
(Hey)

I'm just trying to be who you say you are
But who are you?
I'm just trying to be who you say are the stars
And who is cool

But who am I?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Oh, I'm the dude responsible
Hey, but who am I?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Hey, I'm the dude responsible

(Hey)
They say clothes don't make the man
But I'mma show you how fresh I am
Soon as I pay my water bill
And a couple other bills

They say they gotta cure for my smile
Rather for my [Incomprehensible]
So they gave me another bill
But it was just the water bill

You know we all make mistakes
But they just make us insecure
And a little uncomfortable

My faith got misplaced
Between who I was before
(Hey)
And the dude you think you know
(Hey)

I'm just trying to be who you say you are
But who are you?
I'm just trying to be who you say are the stars
And who is cool

But who am I?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Oh, I'm the dude responsible
Hey, but who am I?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Hey, I'm the dude responsible

Say, I can be in the hood sippin' yacht with my boys
At the keg parties with the white boys
At the beach with the surfers in Beverly Hills
At a ex party with Vicks and light toys

I guess you can call me a chameleon
I adapt to any situation I'm in
And my momma ain't raise no fools
I'm just comfortable in the skin that I am in

Now we all make mistakes
Yeah, I'm a walkin' contradiction
And plus I never listen, ooh

And my faith got misplaced
Somewhere along the lines of
Tryin' to make my mind up, yeah
Hey, hey

I'm just tryin' to be who you say you are
But who are you
I'm just tryin' to be who you say are the stars
And who is cool

But who am I?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Oh, I'm the dude responsible
Hey, but who am I?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Hey, I'm the dude responsible
