I’d Just Rather Be Me

It just seems a little confusing trying to work out where you fit in
People seem to say you’re no good if you’re not doing the same as them
They try to sell you a contradiction that makes you safely mainstream
But at the same time totally different so you can get your 15 seconds of fame, and ...

Maybe someday it will happen - I’ll hide behind plaster and paint
But right now I’ve done with the wrapping; I won’t try to be what I ain’t
And I hope I don’t become the person people tell me that I should be
So what you get is what you see - I’d just rather be me

I never was the best at anything and it’s likely that I never will be
But I won’t give up doing anything just cos someone does it better than me
Never had the crowds buzzing round me - that would mean working too hard
But I don’t mind that nobody found me cos mostly it’s just a charade, but ...
(Repeat chorus)

I don’t need a tick on my t-shirt
I don’t need three stripes on my shoes
I don’t need a name on my trousers
Who I am is not what I consume
I just can’t think like marketing muppets, wondering what you’ll pay for a brand
As they sit there working out what it stands for
As if some dumb company can, but ...
(Repeat chorus)
