Skillet – Freak Show lyrics

Step right up
Ladies and gentlemen
Come and see
Feast your eyes hopefully
Some say they are aliens
Some say they are strangers
Some say they are not of this world
We will not conform to the masters
Whether they support or whether they attack us
Come one, come all
Welcome to the freak show
!

Welcome to the freak show
Step up, status quo
Hope you enjoyed the ride
Welcome to the freak show
We got horns and halos
We ain’t afraid and we ain’t buying a lie

Eat it, drink it, think it, be it, breathe it
Guess you don’t even know who I am
I don’t believe it, need it, see it, feed it, breed it
Time to make my final stand

Welcome to the freak show
This is where the freaks go
This is the place that they can never take away
Welcome to the freak show
We don’t ever need no-
One to tell us who to be, how to feed
I don’t care what they believe (oh oh oh)
Welcome to the freak show


Welcome to the outcast
Take a step across the tracks
We ain’t got nothing to prove
Don’t need your smiling face
Don’t need your hand to shake
'Cause it's my life to live and I ain’t living for you

Eat it, drink it, think it, be it, breathe it
Guess you don’t even know who I am
I don’t believe it, need it, see it, feed it, breed it
Time to make my final stand

Welcome to the freak show
This is where the freaks go
This is the place that they can never take away
Welcome to the freak show
We don’t ever need no-
One to tell us who to be, how to think
I don’t care what they believe (oh oh oh)
Welcome to the freak show

I’m a freak naturally
Just how I want to be
You’re a freak just like me
I’m a freak naturally
Just how I want to be
You’re a freak just like me

Welcome to the freak show
This is where the freaks go
This is the place that they can never take away
Welcome to the freak show
We don’t ever need no-
One to tell us who to be, how to think
I don’t care what they believe

Freak show, freak show
The place that they can never take away
Freak show, freak show
The place that they can never take away

(Oh oh oh)
Welcome to the freak show
(Oh oh oh)
Welcome to the freak show

    This song to me is about how everyone is there own freak and no one can take that away even if they try. For example "Freak show, freak show
    The place that they can never take away
    Freak show, freak show
    The place that they can never take away"
    this means yhat everyone can form their own little "freak show" with who they hang with. They can be their own people. Their own beliefs. They dont and won't listen to what society has to say or what society does. And that though they may be a "freak" they are who they wanna be and they are happy the way that they are. They shouldn't have to change just to fin someone else's standards. The only standards they should be trying to reach are their own standards tbat please themselves

    This song is about Christians and how the world views them as freaks. The freakshow is the gathering of Christians to live a life aspiring to be like Christ. And no matter what the world does they can never take that away. The world can't force anyone to conform to the masses.
