I remember my highschool teacher
she used to say I was a high school creature
and now my boss says I am a lost cause
sometimes things aren't what they seem

that’s why they called me a freak
yeah I don’t want to be like anybody else
that’s why they called me a freak
yeah I don’t wanna be like everybody else
that’s why they called me a freak

I asked my therapist if there was a cure
for people scared and acting insecure
they treat me like a virus
they beat me to my knees
they treat me like a social disease

I was always away
im walking home everyday
these creeps would beat me up and take my money away
they made me feel like I'm a loser
no matter what I did
I was just your average fucked up kid

*chorus*

there is nothing worse than the sound
of the tears of the clown
when there is no one around

that’s why they call me a freak
cuz I don’t wanna live like ne body else
that’s why they called me a freak

im all alone in a crowd
I want to shout it out loud
the voices inside my head
don’t hear a thing that you said
tell me where you can go
or what you already know

that’s why they call me a freak
yeah I don’t wanna be like ne body else
that’s why they call me a freak
yeah I don’t wanna be like everybody else

please don’t call me a freak

yeah I don’t wanna be like anybody else
that’s why they call me a freak
yeah I don’t wanna be like everybody else

that’s why they call me a freak
that's why they call me a freak
that's why they call me a freak
that's why they call me a freak

    General CommentGood song, but goddamnit, it's spelled "anybody." And it sounds more like "they tell me where you can go / I think you already know / that you're the one who is weak / that's why they call me a freak."
