"Freak" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
They poison our sweet mother earth
Destroy our sacred bodies
To fill our mouths with junk and
They call this knowledge
But knowing nothing
Means knowing far, far too much
They let our children
Starve in the name of peace
They march to the beat of
A killing machine

Life is not a dream
When you can't wake up from the dream you wanted
Life is not a dream
When you can't wake up from the dream you wanted

Oh
They'll pour the salt from your soul
Oh
They'll pour the salt from your soul

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Scars and bars and 51 stars
In faith and milk and...
I'm drinking filth and disease
Oh pretty please, I'm begging freedom
There's lives to be blinded,
Serviced and kinded
Before we've paid
And then we'll pay some more
Do you know the score?
Cause I'm so fucking bored!

Life is not a dream
When you can't wake up from the dream you wanted
Life is not a dream
When you can't wake up from the dream you wanted

Oh
They'll pour the salt from your soul
Oh
They'll pour the salt from your soul

They'll sell your wounds as evidence of your hope

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Life is not a dream
When you can't wake up from the dream you wanted
Life is not a dream
When you can't wake up from the dream you wanted
Life is not a dream
Life is not a,
Life is not a dream
Life is not a dream

    General CommentHoping for some theories here. I'm enjoying the musical side of things in this for now. Probably the best of the Teargarden by Kaleidyscope songs so far.

    General CommentI think this song comes in second to A Stitch in Time, it is a very good song overall though.
    I think the song is about how we destroy our Earth with wars, garbage, etc.

    General CommentThis song generally jabs on America politician and the mindset of today's politic.
    They generally refer to the one who have power or even someone who are abusing power.


    "They march to the beat of
    A killing machine"
    This sentence sounds like War Pigs to me.

    I'm confused with "They'll pour the salt from your soul"! Hope you help me out on this one.
