I was alone in my room feeling sorry for myself.
Call me a prophet of doom, I could think of nothing else.
I found a Freudian book gathering dust upon my shelf.
I thought I'll give it a look, would it hurt or would it help?

Freudiana, do you want to be somebody?
Freudiana, do you want to change the world?

I met the Wolfman and the Ratman, Anna-O and Little Hans.
They were walking on a tightrope, I never thought they had a chance.
And then a hand reached out to hold them just before they tumbled down.
But I was standing in a quicksand and I could not feel the ground.

Freudiana, do you want to be somebody?
Freudiana, do you want to change the world?

I look back and try to find the part of me I don't know.
I won't stop till I see the truth. There's such a long way to go.

I saw a picture of a stranger but I don't understand.
He had a ring around his finger and something burning in his hand.
And I wanted him to teach me and I needed to believe.
But the shadows that he threw me were intended to deceive.

Freudiana, do you want to be somebody?
Freudiana, do you want to change the world?

    General Commentit is, actually

    though this album was mostly written by Eric Wolfson, Parsons was involved with the work. However, it is more commonly attributed to just Eric.

    But what isa the significance of the Wolf-man, the Rat-man, Anna-O and Little Hans?

    General CommentWolfman - was a patient who had dreams about wolves in the tree, and Freud somehow came to the conclusion that he'd seen his parents doing it doggy style, hence the wolves! Can't argue with that logic.
