I am, what you see right here, I am
What this world doesn't want to see
Someone who goes against the flow
And raises his voice above the popular echo
I am, not what they want me to be
I am sometimes unpopular, sometimes
I am ridiculed so harshly by the critics
I am a little insane sometimes
I am little crazy o'er the girls
I am quite imperfect, you know
That's the thing, you see
I am a little bit more than outrageous, and
I've had times where I've been far...
Less than courageous...
The popular echo, the popular echo, the popular…
Individuality, uniqueness, individuality
You are special somehow, we don't always know
What you're meant to do, but we know that
You're more than all right, just as you are.
But where, when does the curtain fall?
When are you, just a little too outspoken?
When have you gone… a little too far?
I can't answer, you'll have to find for yourself
I am just one who makes you think
Through the words that I write
And I am prob'ly just another fool
Who tells ya'll just be yourself,
Whatever that may be.
Even if they don't like it
You see, least you can always be yourself
And say I am... this is me... I AM!
I am wild and free
I am what I want to be
I am what I am,
You gotta be what you are!
