Who Am I?
Who am I to say it's wrong?
It's no one's business to say you don't belong.
Whatever your heart desires, for what you long.
Whatever you want to be, it's not wrong.
Whatever you want, it is true.
Don't let the sleazebags screw with you.
Who are they and who am I?
Stay true and do not deny.
Your passion is your fortune.
Now seek it with pride and teach a lesson,
to all of those who think you're an abomination.
You know much more about the world.
These ignorant pukes have got to learn.
Follow your heart and don't be spurned.
Ever onward the world does turn.
You've found yourself, now fight on through.
Ignore the ones who call you a fool.
Who am I, no one it's true.
Nor are they, to subject you to this vast array.
Though unwilling are they to see,
you're human just like them and me.
