Personnel

Lyrics

Don't want to find myself homogenized
Don't want to become the very thing that I despise
Don't need my mommy feeding me culture with a spoon
Don't wanna end up with as much edge as a balloon

Don't want my ideas polluted by mediocrity
Don't want my sentiments diluted
This is important to me

I tried to give my best to you
But you plugged up your ears
And now I just can't take no more
I've had it up to here

Don't wanna be another boy next door
Don't wanna pander to the masses anymore
Don't need the whole wide world to love me
Don't want to win the human race
Don't want my music to be less well-known than my face

Don't wanna compromise my art for universal appeal
Don't wanne be mass comsumed
I'm not a Happy Meal

I moved out from the sticks
Nobody believed in me
Had to claw my way up
Overcome all kinds of adversities
Oh, if you think I need approval from the faceless throng
Oh, that's where you're wrong
So wrong
