Simone White – I Am The Man lyrics

I used to be angry at the Man
The one with the big frying pan
Who takes all the meat and leaves nothing to eat
For the poor with their outstretched hands
But I am the Man I am the Man I am
Yes I am the Man I am the Man
I understand
I used to be scared of the government
Silencing voices of dissent
But the voices of scared folk will never be heard
Open your throat and sing like a bird
Cos in my own government I am the president
Yes it's my own government I represent
Stop pointing the finger (at yourself)
Look in the mirror and see how your enemy fell
I used to think I was alone
A motherless child far from home
But the family I found is in everyone
Open your heart it's time you've come
Is the house you build with your bones
Yes home is the house you build with your bones
