"Free" as written by Darren Lewis, Iyiola Babalola and Taj Jackson....
I'm floating in the blimp a lot
I feel the feeling I forgot
Swimming weightless in the womb
Bouncing gently round the room
In a minute I'll be free
And we'll be splashing in the sea

I feel no curiosity
I see the path ahead of me
In a minute I'll be free
And we'll be splashing in the sea
We hear a tiny cry
As the ship goes sliding by

Free!
Free!

Free!

I'm floating in the blimp a lot
I feel the feeling I forgot
I'm floating in the blimp a lot
I feel free!
Free!
Free!
Free!
Free!

    General CommentI am either high, I am a balloon, or I am a sperm free to complete the long swim to the ovum. I think the last one is a far stretch from the truth but I love this song. Classic tune, will go down as one of the best psychedelic songs like "Ina-Gotta-Da-Vita".

    General CommentThis song can also describe their jams at the end of most of their songs. They have highs and lows, and just kinda drift..."Floating in the blimp a lot"...

    General CommentIts about being born.

    I see the path ahead of me
    In a minute I'll be free

    The music itself gives that sense of entering a new world. The first note has that big "boom" feeling to it, then suddenly dies down, just like when a baby is born and theres tons of loud noises, but once its over, everything is quiet and people are just left to awe at the new life.

    General Commentskemodan, i agree mostly. it dam sure is about being born, possibly born again, in a different way (no, not that way :P)

    i think its about finally understanding life. once you understand something like that, you are really on top of the world. free.

    but also mabey the ability to control and confine that understanding to yourself, as it would be unique, and be able to use it to your advantage in this world.

    General CommentThose lyrics are wrong, it is "and you'll be splashing in the sea"

    The song is really talking about a man who wants to throw his wife overboard.

    General Commentit could be being born, understanding life, or pushing his wife overboard honestly.... but the firts time i heard it the impression i got was that it was about heroin. we all know trey does it... and he's talking about "feeling the feeling he forgot" and floating... etc

    General CommentYea, well Trey didn't write the song, so its not about Trey's drug addiction. Tom Marshall wrote it.

    General CommentPossibly about an astronaut's journey back home or the soul's release during death.
    The first time I heard this song, however, I thought it was metaphorically describing a drug trip.
