I think its about how society is trying to make people 'perfect'? Like with the lines "Please, don't hide your imperfections" and "Tinkering with my design, twist and turn my feral mind play with me 'til you've found another toy" and that the 'Freak Show' is him showing off non-perfect people even though he isn't perfect himself.

When he said ‘Please don’t hide your imperfections’ i think it means that the people that came to make fun of the so caller ‘freaks’ (the acts) shouldn’t always think that being perfect is the number 1 meaning of life.

i think the song freak by sub urban is talking about a guy who owns a freakshow as he says "welcome to our freak show" and calling the people "monsters" and "stranger things" this song is actually talking about a really cruel and just horrible circus i watched a show called creeped out, it wasnt really creepy but there were two episodes where there was a freakshow and it was just really really sad to watch these people being laughed at just because there different.

As a few other interpretations have pointed out, I think it’s about an actual thing called a Freak Show — basically a ‘circus’ where biological oddities are displayed to make money.
Here, the lyrics ‘Welcome to our freak show, come meet my monsters’ suggests that here, a person considered as a ‘freak’ is created and marketed by the ‘ring master’. ( In the actual music video, Sub Urban is the possible ring master, meanwhile Rei Ami — the half-snake woman — is the marketed freak ).
The second verse suggests that this ‘freak’ has been created by the ring master himself, who at a point of time refuses to get close to his monster, but a sick sort of love forms between the two of them. ( Rei Ami’s lines prove that the freak actually enjoys her imprisonment, or the way people gawk at her, and the way the ring master ‘plays with her’ ). To the ring master, the freak is a thing of beauty — and this reassures her to embrace her flaws.
Sub Urban has himself commented on the song: “We live in a society”. This could point at how people in general are being exploited for reasons such as this. This might be a bit of a reach, but I think that it points a bit to Stockholm Syndrome as well.

Personally, I think this song is based off an actual thing called the freakshow, as the freakshow was a cruel place. People who visited there, only came to laugh and make fun of other people who had special features on them, that people didn’t concern normal. The lyrical that gave of this immediately is literally at the beginning, “welcome to our freakshow” as it goes on, about the humans with the special features as the “Stranger things” or “monsters” and etc in the song.
