You say we're all the same. You don't even know my name.
Sometime somewhere someone once hurt you and I'm one of them
So I take all the blame...
You think you know about me... You don't know a damn thing about me!

I'm not all men (2x)
I'm just one man
I'm not that man!

Here's one subject that everyone enjoys:
I heard the boys talk the talk to the boys
I heard the girls say the same thing to the girls
Oh man... It's all the same, neither one's worse
Now-a. I didn't always tell the truth... but then again: neither did you!

I'm not all men (2x)
I'm just one man
I'm not that man!

Get away and leave me well alone, take your damage and take it all back
I'm not to blame for your misery, take your threats away from me
Take that damage and leave me all alone!

I won't try to patronize you...
and say: I know everything that you've been through...
You know... it just might be...
You got no problems with me!
I'm not a rapist in waiting, I'm not the one you should be hatin'
Check it out...

I'm not all men (2x)
I'm just one man
I'm not that man!

You take your fear and you pull it inside... It builds up and the rage
starts to rise...
You push it out and your anger is blind... and you see me as an enemy
That's not the way it oughta be... yeah...

Hey! Yeah!

Ooh... you generalize and tell me lies,
like all I want's between your thighs
All the things that I put you through and
all the things that I might do
Don't wonder why I run away when you tell me: it's my time to pay
For all the tears and all the pain, and all those terrible things I never
Oh yeah! Ya better look even inside... and check out your mind...
Take a good look wonderin' what ya lookin' at when ya lookin' at me!
'cuz I'm not that man! I'm not that man! No, no, no, I'm not that man!
No, uh! I'm not that man, I'm not that man. Oh no, I... Check it out...
Uh, I'm not that man! No, I...
