I don't need to be anything other
Than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other
Than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other
Than the birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going, is knowing where I'm coming from


[Chorus]

Ab       Eb
 I don't want to be
         Bb                        Cm
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
Ab       Eb
  All I have to do
           Bb                     Cm
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
Ab             Eb
  I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
          Bb
Wondering what I've got to do
    Cm
Or who I'm supposed to be
Ab        Eb                  Bb             Cm
  I don't want to be anything other than me

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one who noticed?
I can't be the only one who's learned


[Chorus]

Ab       Eb
 I don't want to be
         Bb                        Cm
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
Ab       Eb
  All I have to do
            Bb                     Cm
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
Ab             Eb
  I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
          Bb
Wondering what I've got to do
    Cm
Or who I'm supposed to be
Ab        Eb                  Bb             Cm
  I don't want to be anything other than me


[Bridge]

Gm
Can I have everyone's attention please?
C-Gm
     If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave

C-Bb-F
       I came from the mountain
C-Bb-F
       The crust of creation
C-Bb-F                   C-Bb-F
      My whole situtaion-made from clay to stone
Eb                  F
And now I'm telling everybody


[Chorus] (played very lightly - louder at the end)

Ab       Eb
 I don't want to be
         Bb                        Cm
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
Ab       Eb
  All I have to do
           Bb                     Cm
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
Ab             Eb
  I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
          Bb
Wondering what I've got to do
    Cm
Or who I'm supposed to be
Ab        Eb                  Bb             Cm
  I don't want to be anything other than me

Ab     Eb           Bb     Cm
I don't want to be
Ab     Eb           Bb     Cm
I don't want to be
Ab     Eb           Bb     Cm
I don't want to be
Ab       Eb           Bb     Cm
anything other than
