about

Rat explains to everyone why he’s the king of the freaks and they all suck.

lyrics

Every single one of you is crazy
You’re all just missing it, man
Yeah, you’ve got a guitar but you’re lazy
You know damn well you’re in the wrong band
You know damn well you’re in the wrong band

You’re all just buying the story
Just one hype away from your dreams
But your Gods don’t have any glory
And they stole all their riffs from me
Yeah they stole all their riffs from me

I’ve seen the birthplace of Manson
In a strip mall bar wrist cut scene
And the shock on their faces was classic
But now it’s boring and passé and clean, clean, clean

You commute to a soundtrack of liars
Songs written by robots and thieves
In a world where the oils make ricin
You at least need a chorus that’s mean
You at least need a chorus that’s mean…

You’re a freak, you’re a freak, and you know it
Deep in your brain it is there
And like a seed, if you bury, you’ll grow it
Yeah
You’re a freak, you’re a freak, and you know it
Deep in your brain it is there
And like a seed, if you bury, you’ll grow it
And when it shows,
We’ll record it and stare
