Anything I’m Not
By: Lenka

I will never be 
I will never be tall 
No 
And I will never be 
Never ever 
Be sure of it all 
Oh, why is the world 
So cruel to me 
When all 
All I ever want to be 
Is anything I'm not 

Gimme a break 
A little escape 
I am so tired
Of being me 
I wanna be free 
I wanna be new 
And different 
Anything I'm not 
I'm not 

I will never be 
I will never be you 
No 
I will always be 
I will always be me 
That I know 
But oh 
Even though 
I'm happy being me 
I want to get away 
From all 
This harsh reality 
Oh 

Gimme a break 
A little escape 
I am so tired 
Of being me 
I wanna be free 
I wanna be new 
And different 
Anything I'm not 

Yeah 
Gimme a break 
A little escape 
I am so tired 
Of being me 
I wanna be free 
I wanna be new 
And different 
Anything I'm not 
Anything I'm not 
Oh 
Anything I'm not 

Gimme a break 
A little escape 
I am so tired 
Of being me 
I wanna be free 
I wanna be new 
And different 
Anything I'm not 

Yeah 
Gimme a break 
A little escape 
I am so tired 
Of being me 
I wanna be free
I wanna be new 
And different 
Anything I'm not 
Anything I'm not 
Anything I'm not 
Anything I'm not 
Anything I'm not

History
Name
The name Polomolok was derived from the B’laan term "FLOMLOK’ which means hunting grounds. In the early years, the place where the Poblacion is presently situated was known for its abundance of wild life. There were no roads and the lowlanders befriended the B’laan highlanders and utilized them as guides. Aside from a rich hunting ground, Polomolok had so many creeks with free flowing water coming from the hillsides. Those cool and clear flowing water encouraged foreigners to settle in this place. One of them was a Japanese trader Zenjiro Takahashi and his B’laan wife. He began clearing the area and planted agricultural crops. Not long after, some of the Christians came to settle and started to clear the area. In 1940, the Philippines Commonwealth government embarked on a very bold program of social amelioration. One of the projects was the distribution of lands to interested people who wanted to settle in Mindanao. Settlers were brought by boat to Dadiangas from Luzon and Visayas. On November 2, 1940, Polomolok was officially opened for settlement and known as POLOMOLOK SETTLEMENT DISTRICT. Atty. Ernesto Jimenez was appointed as its first overseer. He was responsible for the allocation of farm lots. Then came the creation of some barrios of the settlers. These were Palkan, Lemblisong, Polo, Polomolok Central (now Poblacion), Polomolok Creek (now Magsaysay), Sulit, Lamcaliaf, Kinilis, Glamang, Bentung, Koronadal Proper, Leve, and Silway. The first settlers, after a crop or two, started to invite their friends and relatives to settle in this place, because the soil was so fertile that any crop can survive due to favorable climate...
