Social weapons that miss

pretend them to save

cowards bastards to shame

condemned social slaves

here to save the freaks again you think

and i bet you always will

here to save the freaks again

you think here

here to save the freaks

snakes causing the fate

sadistic and free

so free

traders defendants behave

lieges stay away from me

saints keep knocking go home

don't sell me mary no no

making the crazies well inside

you think and i bet you always will

Chorus

calling us no good

you are the social enemies

we change the people day to day

making us no good you are the social enemies

changing the people day to day

agitators talking the show

messing with heads

to be the number one

smashers battling the hiv's

proud of yourselves

aren't you making the crazies well inside

you think and i bet you always will

Chorus

calling us no good

you are the social enemies

we change the people day to day

making us no good you are the social enemies

changing the people day to day

why must we play

so bitter me

i'm suffering now

the nowhere me

stop trying to say

you fell into this place

so tragic you fould

the nowhere me

here to save the freaks again

you think here

here to save the freaks

(repeat)

    General CommentSeems to be about someone who looks down upon others like "social enemies" (or "freaks") or maybe even a person who's convinced they can save these inferior beings from just being themselves.

    General CommentPersonally, I think the song is not dissarming any one group of people, but the grouping of people itself. I think it's trying to say something to the effect of "don't let what you hear shape you", be your own person and like the music for what it is. (notice, the song also includes religious referances.. dont follow, lead) Nice intro to a very provocative album i think.

    General CommentI agree with LivinSilence. Also, Troy Van Leeuwen plays guest guitar on this song, just in case anyone didn't know.

    General CommentIt's about anyone who has ever made you feel like you are less than them. Or less than anybody.

    General CommentSounds inspired by mormons or born again's coming to his house and trying to save him. Clearly Jay wants no part of it.

    General CommentJay is calling out the conservative talking heads, republican radio loudmouths, and other self righteous saviors who blast gays, stoners, and anyone different that chooses an alternative lifestyle.

    General CommentI think it's about the people trying to "fix" something that isn't broken. Many people are naturally afraid of the unknown, so they think "hey, let's find out what's wrong with these "freaks" and try to help them become more like us." When it's not necessary, because the "freaks" are already comfortable with who they are.
    Actually this has been going on for ages, if you think about it- one example is the European conquest of American Indians- "Oh, these people are so heathen, let's convert them to our own ways and beliefs!" >.> Or more recently, the idea of "converting LGBT people to straight," almost as if it's some sort of "disease" that they want to eradicate.
