I do my thing, and you do your thing
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful
If not, it can't be helped.

Don’t chase ghosts, don’t get too close,
Don’t get caught, don’t get spent
Don’t get bought
Don’t sell out, don’t get bent
Don’t fuck your best friend
If everything is just the way it should be
Why am I why am I still hungry
Be like Water
Don’t be shy, don’t shut your eyes
Don’t get high
Expand your Mind.
Don’t keep in touch, don’t touch yourself
Don’t ever want to be somebody else.
When everything is bad as it can be
Never be never be angry
Be like Water
Must be the answer you want
I’m not your slave
I’m not the one who burnt you out
Fucked you up and put you on
Broke you down
Ask someone else
To be that someone
I can’t be that someone who can
Be like Water

Why can’t I be the answer you want?
