Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side {repeat}
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Hey)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Ooh baby)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side

When U can't find the reason 4 the smoke
There's probably water n the fire
When everything U know ain't enough 2 float ur boat
And U're lookin' 4 somethin' that'll take U higher

U got 2 get down
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
2 a brand new sound
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
N the water U drown
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
But the lost is found
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Huh, c'mon now)

When confusion tries 2 tear ur world apart
And the demons fight 4 power
That's the time U've got 2 listen 2 ur heart
No 1 knows the final hour

U got 2 get down
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
2 a brand new sound
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
N the water U drown
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh)
But the lost is found
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh Lord) (Na na)

When U see an illusion everywhere U look
When U know the process of creation
When U understand everything n every book
Congratulations, U're n the New Power Generation

Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
Freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
The freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
The freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Ooh)

When everybody calls the truth by a different name
And the indifference between us still remains
God is love, love is God, simple and plain
Party n this way, there's so much more 2 gain

Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Got 2 get on down...)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
We drownin' (Freaks on this side)
Get on down... (The freaks on this side)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Yeah, yeah)
U got 2 get down
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (U gotta get down)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side (Oh)
U got 2 get down

It's the New Power Generation (Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side)
And U're groovin' 2 another jam of the year (Freaks on this side)
Think it ain't when it is (The freaks on this side)
And we b drownin'
Glug-glug like a mug (Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side)

Looka here, freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
The freaks on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
Looka here, on this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
On this side
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side
The freaks on (Freaks on this side)
U got it on this side (The freaks on this side)
Freaks on this side, the freaks on this side {repeat}
