"Freak" as written by Thomas Burchia and Martin Welzer....
No more maybes
Your baby's got rabies
Sitting on a ball
In the middle of the Andes
Yeah
I'm a freak
Of nature
Yeah
I'm a freak

If only I could be as cool as you
As cool as you

Body and soul I'm a freak I'm a freak
Body and soul I'm a freak, I'm a freak

Try to be different
Well get a different disease
Seems it's infectious
To need the cold sore cream

Yeah I'm a freak of nature
Yeah I'm a freak

I don't really know
How to put on a cool show
As boring as they come
Just tell me where to go

If only I could be as cool as you
As cool as you
As cool as you
As cool as you

Body and soul I'm a freak I'm a freak
Body and soul I'm a freak, I'm a freak

Body and soul I'm a freak I'm a freak
Body and soul I'm a freak, I'm a freak

Freak
Freak
Freak
Freak

    General CommentYeah its about conformity and being a dissolute from the "in crowd". It's about being yourself and not trying to live up to peopls expectations.

    General CommentIt's all about being a Freak. No offence to grungers (I am one), but thats what grunge is all about. Kurt Cobain didn't want to be popular and this destroyed him ultimately

    General CommentThe song is about how people conform to fit with the "in crowd." The first few lines are kind of out of place. On a Silverchair site it said that Daniel saw a show on like Discovery channel or something like that where there was some boy who got rabies in the Andes, and there was a picture of him sitting on a big red ball. Thats what inspired the song, that kid was a "freak."

    General CommentThis is a great song!! Sarcaism is one of the best forms of humor. "Yeah, I'm a freak of nature " THe sinfer is labaling himself a word used by society to label people who are different to normal. He then attacks those people by saying "If only I could be as cool as you" this is the joke. Daniel is proud to be individual and makes a mockery of those people who are sheep or as he puts it "cool"

    General CommentThis song fucking.. is awesome. I can relate to it so well because a lot of people call me a "freak" for being an individual.. and not caring what others think of me.. You only live once.. you only have one life.. you might as well make the best out of your OWN individuality.. As Kurt Cobain once said "Being like someone else, is a waste of who you are"
