I am what I am
I am what I am
I've known that with conviction
I've known since the beginning
Since we were children wishin'
About futures and visions
I knew that I was different
The son of two immigrants
Racially ambiguous
No dreams to be fulfilled with this
Identities irrelevant
Don't be so irreverent
I'll be a comic artist
My dad said that's  not it
Don't be just a lost kid
We've seen that all too often
Why don't you drop it
You need to go to college
Become a lawyer or doctor
The only way to prosper

Why can't I be, The man I was supposed to be
I know it's me, but all of the hopes and dreams
Of generations expectations
Lay on the shoulders of insane men

I am what I am
I am what I am
I know I've got a legacy
But what do you expect from me
How will the world remember me
Can I live past reverie
I have a story to tell
But we all ignore ourselves
Maybe live through my own kids
Maybe I can show them
Be your own person
Your life ain't self determined

Find your own purpose here learn grit and persevere
American dream is for my daughter to believe in
Herself and her achievements, breaking glass ceilings
Find your own meaning, and don't be self defeating

I am what I am
I am what I am
My son has special needs
But I still expect he'll be
The man he was meant to be
So if one day he is tellin' me
Pops, I wanna be a rapper
Or writer or actor
I'ma tell him to go after it
Master the craft and just
Go and be your own star
You are who you are
Not who or what I say
Waiting on the day
But some things will never change
Some things will never change

I am what I am
I am what I am
I am what I am
I am what I am
