"Beautiful Freak" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
You're such a beautiful freak
I wish there were more just like you
You're not like
All of the others

But that is why I love you
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak
That is why I love you
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak

Some people say
You have a problem
But that problem
Lies only with them
Just 'cause you are not like
The others

That is why I love you
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak
That is why I love you
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak

Too good for this world
But I hope you will stay
And I'll be there to see
That you don't fade away

You're such a beautiful freak
I bet you are flying inside
Duck down and then go for cover

You know that I
I love you
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak
Beautiful freak

    General Comment"Some people think you have a problem
    But that problem lies only within"

    I've always heard these lines as:

    Some people think you have a problem
    But that problem lies only with THEM

    Sort of makes sense, but hey, what do I know.

    General CommentBy the way, it's not about Elizabeth. E says in his book that it's about his then-girlfriend Susan, the same one who inspired "Susan's House."

    This line couldn't be more correct. Often people who look or act slightly strange or different get pointed at and critised by stupid people who think that some one differents has a problem, without realising that the one with the problem is themselves. This song is great!

    I love that. It's ironic, the "normal" people are the ones who think they're too good for people who are "different," when it's almost always the other way around. People who follow the crowd are usually not interesting or fun people to be around.

    General CommentThis is a quality song i love it loads, i have to say it's one of my favourite eels songs. When i first heard it and read the lyrics, the first impressions i got from it was that the singer was singing about how he loved someone who wasn't considered ur average person, and no matter what other people think of her, he still loves her. xxxxxxxxxx

    General CommentThis is also one of my favorite Eels songs. The lyrics are self-explanatory...just because youre not loved by society doesn't mean youre a bad person

    General CommentYeah, my ex-boyfriend said it reminded him of me when we were seeing eachother. I thought he was strange. Haha. (I'm only a freak on the inside). But this is an okay song, not my favorite Eel's song, though. I do thank him for introducing me to the Eels anyway.

    General CommentHe says, "I wish there could be more just like you," but if there were more, it wouldn't be the same. Then she would just be like everyone else.
