Lyrics - Examples

Be Proud Of Who You Are

 

Don't listen to the gossips and doubters in your head.

They're insecure and jealous.

Don't let yourself be led.

Believe in your own judgment,

and show them you know best.

Those who care will understand.

Forget about the rest.

Being you is wonderful.

Don't copy so called stars.

Being happy's all about

accepting who you are.

Be proud of who you are,

whoever you may be.

Only being who you are

will ever set you free.

Be an individual.

Don't conform with others.

Express your personality.

Don't keep it undercover.

Think love. Think peace. Be positive,

when criticism's heard,

for critics have to ridicule

to make them feel superb.

Being you is wonderful.

Don't copy so called stars.

Being happy's all about

accepting who you are.

Be proud of who you are,

whoever you may be.

Only being who you are

will ever set you free.

Concrete Characters

They cloned imagination

and sold it for a profit.

They hyped enthusiasm

until we all went off it.

 

They placed originality

under microscopes,

and came up with a formula

that conformists understood.

 

They ridiculed each sunrise mind,

each solstice look,

each best day thought,

each tuneful hook.

 

Like each Gorgon turned to stone,

concrete characters have grown -

influencing how we think,

until free thoughts are all extinct.

They cloned imagination

and sold it for a profit.

They hyped enthusiasm

until we all forgot it.
