"One with the Freaks" as written by and Markus Acher....
You'll no longer be kissed
And kind, as you long for
Intuition, as you have to
Learn the lesson twice
You'll no longer be kissed
And kind, as you long for
Intuition, as you have to
Say the password twice

Have you ever, have you ever
Been all messed up,
Have you ever?
Have you ever, have you ever
Been all messed up,
Have you ever?

You're the pin card, you're
The lifeguard, you're the
Information guy, but things
Look much bigger on the
Knees, on your knees.
Miss the signal, miss the
Signpost, lose the access to
It all. and all of a sudden
You are one with the freaks.

Have you ever, have you ever
Been all messed up,
Have you ever?
Have you ever, have you ever
Been all messed up,
Have you ever?

    General CommentIt's not about a relationship, it's obviously about depression.

    General CommentJust based on my personal experience, this song struck me as the story of someone who once had all the answers ('the information guy'; the 'lifeguard') - basically someone who was the go-to person...maybe they helped a lot of people out with their problems. But then, due to a crippling experience of sorts ('have you ever been all messed up?'; 'but everything looks bigger on your knees'), they were broken down to become the person that they once helped. I think the words 'freaks' is used as how outsiders might view such people, but i think the lyricist has empathy for such people.
    That's my two cence anyway.

    General Commentif that is how you see it fine, that's what it's all about. i read it as the person getting hurt one too many times, being messed up by the relationship, and then being out with the "freaks" in single-persons land.

    General CommentI basically see this one as being an insiders view of a complicated romantic situation and then after stumbling twice in your own confusion resolving to get back up and say to the other person "Hey! Ever been really fucked up? Ever not known left from right anymore? Ever just felt like a complete freak, misunderstood? Well that's how I feel but I know it and the fact that I'm defining the Freaks as something other, as something different to me, this means I'm already on the way up again."
    I mean, listen to the positive undercurrent in the melodies, they're beautiful and warm and have this slightly apologetic tenderness to them, building up to a ride into a velvet sunset.
    The lyrics are self-admonishing, addressing the author as much as the object. He's qualifying his role in the relationship "You're the lifeguard, you're the information guy".
    He's asking himself repeatedly "Have you ever been all messed up?" and then advising himself "...things look much bigger on your knees". Come on, I think it's nothing but positive.

    General CommentD_Peo: a pin card is nothing more complicated than the peice of card that holds a pack of pins together when you by them in the shop. it covers the middles and the ends to prevent injury. i have emailed you a picture.

    General Commenta pin card is just a plastic card holding some kind of secret code (Personal Identification Number).

    you're the pin card > he just uses you to get to know other people and places
