    Post Help with lyrics for a song

    First, I don't know if this is the right place to post. Second, english isn't my mother language, so please forgive any grammar/spelling errors.
    So there's this song by Bound for Glory, "The Beast", and I couldn't find the lyrics anywhere. So I tried writing them down, can someone help me with some words I couldn't make out? I pasted down what I've wrote so far. Thanks.

    *** = Didn't undestand the word.
    ** = Didn't understand the whole line.
    *word* = Not sure about the word.

    Search for "Bound For Glory - The Beast" in youtube to find the song

    The Beast


    If I said I know ***
    It would be a lie
    I tried my best to assimilate
    But now I'd rather die


    You try to tell me that the way I feel
    Is *hurtful* and so wrong
    You treat me though as I'm the beast
    And tell me that I don't belong


    Don't tell me what to do
    Don't tell me what to say
    Don't tell me I should step aside
    Don't tell me to accept the things that shouldn't be
    Don't tell me how to live my life


    If I said now that I believe
    Would you leave me alone
    Or would you keep on molding me
    To your perfect little ***


    Would you whisper behind my back
    And turn away from me
    **
    **


    Don't tell me what to do
    Don't tell me what to say
    Don't tell me to believe your lies
    Don't tell me what to think
    Don't tell me who to be
    Don't tell me how to live my life


    Don't tell me that you *hate*
    Don't tell me I don't see
    The people that *destroyed my* society
    Don't tell me I'm *alone*
    Or I don't understand
    **
    **
    **

    See above.

    You're welcome, but please don't make me listen to any more of their songs. It was dreadful!
