I can be what I want to be

No comments

rolling over bending over turning over pulling all over again
roadside, bedside flipside upside downside the same
i’m living in a fragmented world holding on to little the same
sub this sub that sub what sub cultures messing with me

i know i can have what i want to have
and i know i can be what i want to be
if i live past this hour of greed
if i am what i am in head

rat race, 5Cs, upward mobile, its all the same
slavery, bondage, mortgage, credit cards they’re all the same
we’re living in a dictatorship where the banks control our lives
discounts, rebates, rewards, redemption fading away

i know i can have what i want to have
and i know i can be what i want to be
if i live past this hour of greed
if i am what i am in head

this is not what i want cos i know what i want
this is not what i need cos i know what i need
this is not who i am cos i know who i am
this is not how i thought it would be

this is life in the past with the roles interchanged
this is madness again, different name different face
this is selfish and greedy, ruling and leading
caged all our choices and freedom

i know i can have what i want to have
and i know i can be what i want to be
if i live past this hour of greed
if i am what i am in head
