"Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)" as written by and Wayne/drozd Coyne....
You think you're so radical
I think you ought to stop
Say what?
But you're going international
They're gonna call the cops
Oh no no
You're turning into
A poor man's Donald Trump
I know those circumstances make you wanna jump
Oh no

You think you're radical
But you're not so radical
In fact you're fanatical
Fanatical
You think you're radical
But you're not so radical
In fact you're fanatical, fanatical

I'll tell you right now (right now), you ought to change your mind (yes)
All of your friends are (uh huh) standin' in a line
They're getting tired of your attitude fast, oh
(You better lose it, you better lose it)
Without all your bodyguards, how long would you last?
(Not long, not long)

You think you're radical
But you're not so radical
In fact you're fanatical
Fanatical
And you think you're radical
But you're not so radical
In fact you're fanatical
Fanatical
And you think you're radical
But you're not so radical
In fact you're fanatical
Fanatical

    General CommentAccording to Wayne, loosely based on a dream of his and in reference to a suicide bomber.

    General CommentI guess it's about pleading with a suicide bomber before he commits the crime "You think you're so radical but you're not you're fanatical"...kinda of show cases how we all feel. I don't understand the line "A poor man's Donald trump" seeing as Donald trump is a rich american man? *I am British* So if it an ironic joke?

    General CommentThe terrorists which used to be of international sympathy, become too evil, or fanatical, for anyone to explain protecting them

    General CommentI read in Rolling Stone that it was not about Beck. Any way they are so much better then Beck. If you can see them in concert you must do it best show I have ever seen.
