If I hadnt made me, I wouldve been made somehow
If I hadnt assembled myself, I'd have fallen apart by now
If I hadnt made me, I'd be more inclined to bow
Powers that be, would have swallowed me up
But that's more than I can allow
Bow, aww yeah
If you let them make you, they'll make you paper mache
At a distance you're strong, until the wind comes
Then you crumble and blow away
If you let them fuck you, there will be no fore-play
Rest assured, they'll screw you complete
Til your ass is blue and gray
You should make amends with you
If only for better health, better health
But if you really want to live
Why not try, and make yourself
Make yourself
Make yourself
If I hadnt made me, I'd have fallen apart by now
I wont let them make me, it's more than I can allow
So when I make me, I wont be paper mache
And if I fuck me, I'll fuck me my own way
Pow, fuck me in my own way
Pow, fuck me in my own way
Pow, fuck me in my own way
Fuck me in my own way
You should make amends with you
If only for better health, better health
But if you really want to live
Why not try, and make yourself
Make yourself
Make yourself
Make yourself
Make yourself

    If you don't make yourself, if you are not your own individual you will be made somehow. If you submit to the conformity of others you'd be more inclined to bow and you will. In your group you may feel secure, but when something real comes you will find you are nothing more than brittle paper mache. If you go through the motions, people will take advantage of you and the more dishonest ones will not hesitate in screwing you over, be they the car salesman or big business. You should make amends with yourself and embrace what people may tease you about, if only for your health. But if you really want to live, you will shut up those bad voices and make yourself.
