THE FREAKS (SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH)

THE FREAKS (SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH)
How many jacks are kept in their boxes?
How many dreams are trodden underfoot?
It could be in you or it could be in me
The fate of all nations or a colour TV

Look down any road see a million faces
Scream back their pain from a sheer concrete wall
There’s a million products made just to fill that hole
But you never never, can never fill it at all

It’s a cry from the depths of a pin-stripe suit
And whose voice dares not to conform
Why is it just those who can see through the see through?
They’re the misfits who break out from the norm

The Freaks! The Freaks!
The Freaks shall inherit the Earth
The Freaks! The Geeks!
Who speak shall inherit the Earth

Should we obey what the government says?
Is it wrong not to tag along?
The question is no question at all
But what we do with our backs to the wall

What is a freak? I think we’ll see
When what is established gets washed away
Those who cling to it will not survive it
Destiny’s child awakes a new day

Just look around you see those bulldozers working
Their ripping up the land for fool’s gold again
It’s getting worse, can’t go on forever
And who’s gonna be here when these dinosaurs fall?

Ok. What’s it going to be if it is as we’ve heard?
Who’s gonna emerge with these worlds submerged?
When the damage is done from the profit we made
Are you gonna cling to the wreckage or else go with the change?

CHANGE!!!!!

Now there’s some pretty megaton forces
Stirring up hate and making a war
Who can get poison and spit out the bullet?
Who are these freaks, do you think that one’s you?

The Freaks! The Freaks!
The Freaks shall inherit the Earth
The Freaks! The Geeks!
Who speak shall inherit the Earth

The Freaks! The Freaks!
The Freaks shall inherit the Earth
The Freaks! The Geeks!
Who speak shall inherit the ….. Earth!!!!

Fun Facts:
* The Freaks (Shall Inherit the Earth) is a glorious rock n roll anthem and call to action in the key of G major.
* It was performed by the Spacegoats before Alchemeon started playing it.
* During the Spring rendition one of Jim’s keyboards started to misbehave by being either too quiet or too loud and harsh, despite his numerous and ongoing fiddlings and twiddlings, so at 3:29 he becomes a bit frustrated and gives it a good bash.
* The Freaks (Shall Inherit the Earth) would have been the final song in an Alchemeon set, with Orb and Finale as encores.
