Don't
Tell me how to write
Fight.
It isn't your right
Mine.
It's over your head
The Lines
Never lose sight of something

Feelin' like the underdog.
Living like the underdog.
I've been trying
In the end I will

I extend my hand.
Take me as I am.
I know where I stand.
Take me as I am.
As I am.
Still
Swimming against the current
****ed.
Lost in a sea of mediocrity.
You're thinking too much,
You cannot touch the way
Or tell me what to say.
Of all that I believe in.
Takin' in the view from the outside
Watchin' through the window I'm on the outside

On you.
Upon You.
To those who understand,
To the doubtful I demand
Not under your command,
I won't change to fit your plan.

I extend my hand.
Take me as I am.
I know where I stand.
Take me as I am.
As I am.
Yeah!
As I am.Don't
Tell me how to write
Fight.
It isn't your right
Mine.
It's over your head
The Lines
Never lose sight of something

Feelin' like the underdog.
Living like the underdog.
I've been trying
In the end I will

I extend my hand.
Take me as I am.
I know where I stand.
Take me as I am.
As I am.
Still
Swimming against the current
****ed.
Lost in a sea of mediocrity.
You're thinking too much,
You cannot touch the way
Or tell me what to say.
Of all that I believe in.
Takin' in the view from the outside
Watchin' through the window I'm on the outside

On you.
Upon You.
To those who understand,
To the doubtful I demand
Not under your command,
I won't change to fit your plan.

I extend my hand.
Take me as I am.
I know where I stand.
Take me as I am.
As I am.
Yeah!
As I am.Don't

Take me as I am.

Take me as I am.
