I will always be who I am,
and to my haters: I don't give a damn.
To be me, that's my dream,
and not even the populist can tame this regime.
With a personality that is beaming,
so bright you'd think you were dreaming
of nothing more than Vanilla Twilight,
except perhaps not so bright.
To Dance In The Dark is fine; I know It'll be alright,
and the light that comes will never shine so bright.

I will make my dreams a reality,
no matter the fatality.
Moreover, I will make my dreams come true
right down until I say the word adieu!
And until my dying breath, I'll work;
thus, I'll do my work until it will hurt
because I've got something to prove,
and no one can match my groove.
I will continue to express myself
right down to my life's final breath.
