Queensryche – I Am I lyrics
Beating with life you promised life,
Security, happiness.
Unfortunate son cornered,
Cowering in the pit of
Circling panes of glass that
Surround and reveal the ever present it.

It is my move, my every look,
Interpreting gestures,
Informing other
What's undercover and
Lurking beneath my mask
Of this years featured model.
Is this too much?
Close your eyes.
Care to look inside? I am i!

What may appear
Might easily be explained,
But given the situation
Of info saturation,
What you feel can never go away.

Steering perception? I am!
Inviting contradiction? I am!
Its my insistence
You keep your distance
From the glare behind my stare.
So this is the way
The game is played.
You can leave now...
But I think you'll stay. I am i!

    This song is an expression of the inevitable disappointment and lack of individuality that results when people strive from birth for a generic happiness (mindless consumerism and conformity). People strive for this in a subconscious attempt to deny the disappointment of learning that society doesn't allow everyone that promised happiness and security, usually due to a desire to convince themselves they can, as well as a lack of individual thought. In this song, the person recognizes the hypocrisy and contradictions of this promise and expresses that he will live by his own judgment and standards rather than by popular lies.
