Freak on a Leash Lyrics
Something lost and never seen.
Everytime I start to believe,
Something's raped and taken from me... from me.
Life's got to always be messing with me. (You wanna see the light)
Can't they chill and let me be...

This song is a metaphor for Jon Davis' feelings toward american politics and the music industry. He feels like a prostitute to her pimp and customers abused and used. He feels "raped" by the corporate world. like a prostitute he does all the work yet he isn't entitled to all the rewards because some other jerk off is out there to take his money...

Jonathan Davis – “One of the best titles I've heard ever for a song. That's my song against the music industry. Like me feeling like I'm fuckin' a pimp, a prostitute. Like I'm paraded around. I'm this freak paraded around but I got corporate America fuckin' making all the money while it's taking a part of me. It's like they stole something from me, they stole my innocence and I'm not calm anymore. I worry constantly.”

"The huge single from that album was called "Freak On A Leash." It was about Jonathan being a freak on a leash--sort of a kinky dominatrix thing." -Brian "Head" Welch

It's all about everything isn't real, you can see but you can't touch, you can touch but you can't taste, you can taste but you can't swallow
Feels like I am inmate & don't know when you'll be judged
It's like your head wanna be explode!

This is why I love music! For me, this song describes my anxiety disorder, for you it can describe the smell of your socks and for the writer something completely else. The only thing we have together is that we all think its great.

I think what Jonathan Davis is telling us that he is being controlled by his some assholes(freak on a leash) losing his freedom to the point I think its about fighting for freedom

I belive that this song is about an addiction in which makes the speaker want to kill himself as expressed in the lyrics in parentheses and wanting to take away all the pain and tryng in vain. It is also about how he can't live without the addiction expressed in "you and i are meant to be" the next line can be interpreted as having a postitute around him that he feels connected with.

The music video "Falling away From Me" (Falling Away From Me discusses child abuse and domestic violence from the abused child's perspective) is a continuation on the music video Freak on a Leash".. Can it have the same theme perhaps..
It's basically like, he came up with all the lyrics and spent the time putting songs together and he's seen as sooo many things in the media, yet through good publicity and bad, sleepless nights and whatever else he's endured, there's a political sewer line there draining him of EVERYTHING he's worked for. He's worked hard, been the freak show, put his ass on the line sooo many times and THEY reap the benefits of what he sowed. It sucks really.
