"Let my freak flag fly" as written by and Joakim Frans Ahlund....
I'm gonna let my freak flag fly
I've been a fool all lifetime, but today I'll be the king
I'm gonna let my freak flag fly
Wear it high up in the air for everyone to seeee...

I'm the best thing that you ever had how could you let be go?
how could you let me walk away?
When the only one I ever really cared about was you
I don't care what the people say
I let my freak flag fly

I've been a fool all lifetime, but today I'll be the king
I'm gonna let my freak flag fly
Wear it high up in the air for everyone to seeee....

No one takes me seriously because I'm such a fool
and everybody knows it's true
but everything I've ever done, I've done because of you
Yeah, this is what I have to do
I let my freak flag fly

Where did it all go wrong?
And why d'you keep pretending when you knew it all along?

Now the people that I used to know all laugh behind my back
they think that it's some kind of joke
And everybody stares at me like it's some crazy act
but today I'm gonna let them know
I let my freak flag fly

I let my freak flag fly x4

    My InterpretationI like this song. Catchy, and infused with pride and a bit of brash craziness.

    The songs seems to be about person A who likes person B ("everything I've ever done, I've done because of you"). At some point, A was trying to please or get the attention of B (at least subconsciously) but eventually gave up and walked away from B. However, A was disappointed that B let him/her walk away ("how could you let me walk away?").

    Maybe A was not admitting to him/herself that A was really into B. Who knows. However, it seems A looked pretty silly to others for having those feelings, so silly some thought it was a joke ("Now the people that I used to know all laugh behind my back they think that it's some kind of joke"). Either that, or A's friends think A was an idiot for thinking B would be interested, but I doubt that given my next thought.) A is now going back in earnest to win B's interest ("Yeah, this is what I have to do.
    I let my freak flag fly"). A is confident this is worth it, since A thinks B had already recognized A's interest ("And why d'you keep pretending when you knew it all along?").

    A is going to show everyone that his/her feelings are no joke, s/he'll be as outrageous as s/he wants to be and as natural as it comes. "I'll let my freak flag fly." Go for it person A!
