This song's for the emo kids
With the punk rock, rockabilly, screamo lids
And the crunk, rock, hip hop, metal queens
Who still don't know what the heck that means

Let's cheer for the real MC's
All the East, West, 'Derrty South', straight O.G.'s
With the hippy rock, hard core, alt. country's
With the techno industrial magazines

I don't know where I fit in,
But every time that record spins
I know the way it makes me feel
I never tried to be your trend
Never asked to be everyone's friend
I'm just who I am
And that's life for real
And every time you try to just remember

That I won't be
America's next freak
I will not lay down
Every time you speak
And if all you see
Is America's next freak
Take me home, take me home, take me home

This one's for the philistines
And the beach boys rockin' in the Phillipines
With the twist top, X-Box strategies
All speakin' French, Spanish and Portuguese

And one time for the have-to-buy-it's
With their super low, low-carb Atkin's diets
And the man with the plan in the Cordiroys
Who just brought back the Backstreet Boys

I don't know where I fit in
But every time that record spins
I know the way it makes me feel
I never tried to be your trend
Never asked to be everyone's friend
I'm just who I am
And that's life for real
And every time you try to just remember

That I won't be
America's next freak
I will not lay down
Every time you speak
And if all you see
Is America's next freak
Take me home, take me home, take me home

I dont see anything around me
I wont be, I wont be
I dont see anything around me
I wont be, I wont be
If you dont see, then make me blind
I wont see, I wont see
It makes me sick, it makes me smile
'Cause i wont be, I wont be

I won't be
America's next freak
I will not lay down
Every time you speak
And if all you see
Is America's next freak
Take me home, take me home, take me home

    General CommentHe wants to stand out and be in a group all his own. I think that everyone should follow this example and be themselves!

    General CommentGah. This is another amazing song. I think it's about how he doesn't want to be like everyone else in America.

    General CommentYet another awesome song from FM Static. But, I was listening to this and I have some minor corrections.

    "This one's for America's teens
    And the beach boys rockin' in the Phillipines
    With the twist top, X-Box strategies
    All speakin' French, Spanish and Portuguese

    And one time for the After Life
    And the super low, low ride Macstyle
    And the man with the plan in the Corderois
    Who just brought back the backstreet boys"

    Should be...

    "This ones for the Phyllis Deans
    And the beach boys rockin' in the Philippines
    With the twist top, X-Box strategies
    All speaking French, Spanish, and Portuguese

    And one time for the half to bites
    With the super low low carb akins diets
    And the man with the plan in the corduroy
    Who just brought back the backstreet boys"

    So, yeah. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :]

    General CommentIt's..

    "This one's for the Philistines"

    The definition is a person who is uninterested in intellectual pursuits - or in other words, stupid.
