The Man I Never Wanted To Be
2013 Mark Allen

Taught me how to hate, taught me who to be
Im living with your past inside of me
Taught me to be tough, taught me to be cruel
I coward at the thought of hurting you 

Growing up I looked up to the man, with the
Thunder in his voice and a drink in his hand
Never knew I would turn out to be like you

CHORUS
Im the man I never wanted to be
Mocks me in the mirror, stares me down
Screaming at the wind if it makes a sound
Dead in a head full of debris
Im the man I never wanted to be 

Tip-toe round the ice, mama had to plead
Another black and blue will make it bleed
Smoking cigarettes, save a puff for me
Bonding with your insecurity

There you go wanna go for a ride, another
Set em up knock em down hope that I died
Every day - there's a shadow that begs to play

CHORUS
Im the man I never wanted to be
Mocks me in the mirror, stares me down
Screaming at the wind when no ones around
Dead in a head full of debris
Im the man I never wanted to be

BRIDGE
The lessons of life, Im now re-learning
Your bodys at rest, but Im still burning
One would say Im blessed because I made it through
But what good did it do?
Im you 

Down the road there are cracks and bumps, but the
Bridge is ablaze and Im ready to jump
Only then, can I stop it from happening again

CHORUS
Im the man I never wanted to be
Mocks me in the mirror, stares me down
Screaming at the wind when no ones around
Dead in a head full of debris
Im the man...
Im the man I never wanted to be
