Let Me Do Me
What am I to do when I can't be true?
Who am I to be when I can't be me?
People try to control what I'm all about,
they lock all the doors when I'm just trying to get out,
telling me I can't do what they've already done,
enforcing all the rules while they have all the fun,
handcuffing my hands when I'm reaching for the stars,
putting me on a leash so I don't go too far.
Don't force me to hide! It's how I've always felt.
Let me do me and be bad all by myself!
