lyrics

I am a man
Though what that means isn't clear
But here I stand
with a need for responsibility for the sacrifice that got me here.

When all talk of masculinity
is structured around toxicity
and the men in power keep providing the proof
it's no surprise that I would find myself not knowing what to do

or how to act.
Society shows me two opposing potential tracks.
I could become a hedonistic playboy,
power hungry and treating women as my own.
Or become a martyr
hating myself for what’s concealed under my clothes.

When the models of masculinity
Drop their anchors into tyranny
and everywhere I look it's reinforced
it's no surprise that my ship doesn’t have a clear course.

But I'll find one thing and do the best I can
Perfection need not be part of the plan
Once I've managed that I'll start again
Build strength of character
So I can say
With some dignity,

I am a man.

There is no need for me to identify
With the monsters who happen to be born like me,
I'm an individual,
And I know I act respectfully.

I'll find one thing and do the best I can
Perfection need not be part of the plan
Once I've managed that I'll start again
Build the strength of character
To understand:

If I better myself
The world might follow my lead.
