Feeling alienated and stuck in a heartless time (2065 A.D.), our hero volunteers for the time travel experiments to escape to a kinder, gentler time in the past.

Lyrics

FREAK FOR ROMANCE

Words & Music by Ted Myers

1. Cruisin' down the strip on a Saturday night, twenty sixty-five A.D.
There's nothing in the eyes of the passers-by that looks like any fun to me
My baby just left me for a space cadet that took her to a new galaxy
I haven't learned to kill my emotions yet, I'm livin' in the wrong century

CHORUS:
'Cause I'm a freak for romance
A twenty-first century fool
I'm a freak for romance
And baby I'm a fool for you, fool for you

2. I waste all my days in a vertical maze, tryin' to work my way to the top
At night I watch the riots at the food giveaways, the mutants getting' beat by the cops
And sometimes I go to the old picture shows, they're the only source of pleasure for me
Try an' escape to a safer place, like nineteen thirty-three

REPEAT CHORUS, BRIDGE:
And don't, don't, don't, don't let me give in
Don't, don't, don't, don't let me begin to feel that heart of steel
That "nobody home inside," oh no!

INSTRUMENTAL

3. I don't wanna change, but I can't stand the strain of everyone rejecting me
They say there's a place where in a couple of days they can cure me neurochemically
But I don't think I'm gonna stick around to find out what they have in mind
You see, I've volunteered for the experiments, dear, to send a person back in time

REPEAT CHORUS TO FADE
