Please send a message
To all the people
Who find their pleasure in being normal
Please help them to see
They can be different
Although their lives make it hard to see it
I get frustrated when I walk in town
But it’s not my place to tell them now
That they can think strange
They can be different
So I go home and imagine everyone saying…

How can we be strange?
How can we be strange?
When we’ve got work to do today?

Please understand this
I’m not a fascist
Just wish that folk wouldn’t be so passive
Toward the freak in the subconscious
It’s in us all so don’t be so cautious
Please help them to see
They can feel different
Although their lives make it hard to feel it
Please send a message
To all the people
So I can go home and not hear them saying

    General CommentThis song is the best! It tells people that its okay to be different, show your differences and be proud, its not a bad thing. It wonderfully i.lustrates this point and i feel eveyone should think that its okay to let 'the freak' in us all out.
