I'll be your black sheep

I've been damned since birth
 to walk this earth
some say it could be worse
but this life is my curse

I'm a nice guy, a gentle giant
but society suppresses the defiant
i'll be your black sheep and keep my freedom
you stay in your cages, you seem to need 'em

I refuse to be a mere puppet
you say its not that bad, i say **** it!
people are evil, of that, i have no doubt
they'll rob, steal, lie, and kill to find a way out

peace is lost and that comes with a price
look at everyone at the top...now find one that is nice
now you would think our gov't would want us to be healthy?
HA! no no... that wouldn't profit the wealthy

they could care less... yet we still follow?
they kill their own people!!! ...thats hard to swallow
some say it could be worse...
i say ya... it could be you in that hearse

I've been damned since birth
to walk this beautiful earth
only to watch it rot and decay
to watch the people live for yesterday

we should live for the morrow
we should end the pain and sorrow
there is a flame within us all, wanting to fight
to emerge from darkness we must embrace the light

I'm a nice guy, a gentle giant
I'm going to do whats right, so be it defiant
I'll be your black sheep and keep my freedom
you keep your cages if you think you need 'em
