When you just gotta be you. Fly the freak flag unapologetically. Enough with conformity. Composed & performed by Chris Mezzolesta (vocals, bass, guitar, VST drums/horns) with Lori Furth on vocals/
Don't you wanna fly your freak flag
Don't you wanna freak?
Don't you wanna just go nuts
When life is looking bleak?
Don't you wanna go berserk and
set your demons loose?
Don't you wanna shoot the moon and
then recharge the juice?
You gotta be your own jester, gotta be your own fool
You gotta do all those things they didn't teach you in school
You gotta ask all those questions one's not s'posed to ask
Sometimes you gotta be a royal pain in the ass BECAUSE
What good is following those who aren't worth following?
No value hitching your wagon to a would-be king
Got news for you, the Joneses called to say they're way out ahead
And there's no catching up until you're long past dead, SO
Straitjacket's gotta come off, same for the suit and tie
The time for sensible is over, time to let it fly
Right now let's all get Demented, have a laugh or three
You need that freak flag when life's got you up a tree, SO
