    I don't need to be held down
    Under water
    I don't need to drown
    I don't need hatred in my area, naw... I don't need that around

    I don't need to be lifted high
    I'm not God
    I don't need to touch the sky
    I don't need suck ups
    I don't need of bunch of lies

    I don't need followers
    I'm not that kind of leader
    Cuz the more I have, the more they're eager
    To take my shine
    And really, I dont need that either.

    I don't need the popularity
    I'm just a person
    I don't need to be bragged about
    I'm so far from perfect

    I don't need your satisfaction
    I've got my own brain
    I don't need to stop practicin
    Cuz love is pain

    I don't need to enjpy treasure
    Cuz I'm excited over whatever
    I don't need to enjoy the luxury
    A gold nugget wont last forever

    What sounds good, isn't always good
