Type O Negative – I Don’t Wanna Be Me

Type O Negative was an American gothic metal band formed in Brooklyn, New York in 1989, by Peter Steele (lead vocals, bass), Kenny Hickey (guitar, co-lead vocals), Josh Silver (keyboards, backing vocals), and Sal Abruscato (drums, percussion), who was later replaced by Johnny Kelly. Their emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death resulted in the nickname “the Drab Four” (in homage to the Beatles’ “Fab Four” moniker). On April 14, 2010, at the age of 48, Steele died resulting in the bands breakup.

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

Ever throwing at his home
Two glass houses, twenty stones
Fourteen yellow, six are blue
Could it be worse? … Quite doubtful.

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

1-2
1-2-3-4.

Two steps forward, three steps back
Without warning, heart attack
He fell asleep in the snow
Never woke up, died alone

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

1-2
1-2-3-4.

Please don’t dress in black
When you’re at his wake
Don’t go there to mourn
But to celebrate

Please don’t dress in black
When you’re at his wake
Don’t go there to mourn
But to celebrate

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

1-2
1-2-3-4.

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore
