I Can't Be Who I Want

I cant be who i want
i have to be what they want
what they say i must do
what i want is way too new
do what they ask be as they wish
be this person,this showcase dish
dress how theysay,talk how they sound
smellof their stink,walk their ground
cant be who i want to be
wont let me look how i see me
imprisoned i feel to their belief
never will i gain my own relief
trapped in their world of sin
laughing crying at who i am
i will be what i am
you cant stop me
i am what i am
