Upon A Burning Body – You Don't Own Me lyrics

[Intro]
Motherfucker, you don't own me.

[Verse 1]
You can't please everyone so listen up and understand,
I make music for me and for the people who love it.
I don't need permission from you,
And I damn sure ain't your fucking puppet.
All I hear is "Walk this way,
And talk this way, do it just how I say".
I won't be criticized for the man I am,
A word of advice: start your own band.

[Chorus]
I say what I mean, I mean what I say,
Like the words of a king.
From the bottom on the grind to the top,
You think I'm sorry, I'm not.
I say what I mean, I mean what I say,
Like the words of a king.
From the bottom on the grind to the top,
So if you're with me,
I'll give you all I've got.

[Verse 2]
Oh yeah, I see you looking at me,
And I can see your mouth moving but I'm not listening.
You ain't got nothing better to do,
Than talk shit about who's who from what you've seen on YouTube.
All the shit it took me to get here,
You couldn't hang with me if you wanted to.
I won't be criticized for the man I am,
A word of advice: start your own band.

[Bridge]
I'ma do what I want,
And I'll do it the way I want.
I'ma sing what I want,
And I'll sing it the way I want.
I'ma do what I want (what I want),
And I'll do it the way I want.
I don't need permission from you,
Who the fuck do you think you are?

[Chorus]
I say what I mean, I mean what I say,
Like the words of a king.
From the bottom on the grind to the top,
You think I'm sorry, I'm not.
I say what I mean, I mean what I say,
Like the words of a king.
So true fans put your hands up, stand up,
And scream it with me.

[Breakdown]
Motherfucker, you don't own me,
And I don't owe you a god damn thing.

[Outro]
I say what I mean, I mean what I say,
Like the words of a king.
From the bottom on the grind to the top,
You think I'm sorry, I'm not.
I say what I mean, I mean what I say,
Not the words of a king.
From the bottom on the grind to the top,
So if you're with me,
I'll give you all I've got.
