I’m a man on a mission
Going through a transition
My response to adjust with the faith to believe
Now I know it’s no joy
I’m no longer a boy
Waking up to the fact that I need a release

I’m a man trying to cope with life as I am
Going to sell myself if I can
Make a stand and fight as a man on a mission

Life’s a cause will I take it?
I’m unsure if I’ll make it
Giving up is an option that’s there in my brain
Trying to think for the future
Yet the past is my nature
Through it all it still haunts me and clouds my whole life

I’ve the chance to prove myself If I can
Try and take myself as I am
Make mistakes and learn as a man

I’m a man on a mission
Trying to make a decision
All my life sees depression all over my face
All these crazy reactions
Due to dissatisfaction
So many doubts are the feeling that cannot erase

I’m a man so fed up with life as it stands
It’s a life that’s full of demands
Have to face the change as a man
That’s what I am, I’m a man on a mission
