I will graciously accept that my life's work, Whether it be in the past, the present, Or the future will be overshadowed by those around me With a different definition of success. Though I can't explain the path I've chosen, All I know is I'm right where I need to be. And though I've turned down a chance at fame and fortune, I know that there is no greater payment than this. And I'm so fucking far from the life I'm supposed to lead, And the man I'm supposed to be and I couldn't be happier And I will remain a constant, I know where I stand, And I refuse to let their selfishness take control of who I am While I may die poor, at least my life had meaning, There's more to life than living, and I truly feel alive And I know that when I die, There will be others who feel the same way ready to take my place This is our song of protest I promise you that nothing is slowing us down While I may die poor, at least my life had meaning, There's more to life than living and I truly feel alive And I know that when I die, there will be others who feel the same way Ready to take my place. I will laugh in the face of those who tell me different Even with both of my feet planted firmly on the ground, I am free to move in my own direction. I will remain a constant I know where I stand
