as i am...


Don't tell me what's in
Tell me how to write
Don't tell me how to win this fight
Isn't your life
It isn't your right
To take the only thing that's mine


                                                  Proven over time
                                                  It is over your head
                                                  Don't try to read between the lines
                                                  Are clearly defined
                         "Never lose sight of something you believe in"

Taking in the view from the outside
Feeling like the underdog
Watching through the window I'm on the outside
Living like the underdog

I've been trying to justify you
In the end I will just defy you


                                                 To those who understand, I extend my hand
                                                 To the doubtful I demand, take me as I am
                                                 Not under your command, I know where I stand
                            I won't change to fix your plan, Take me as I am

As I am
