Freedom Lyrics 3 – Absolutely Free

zappa free lyrics

from International Times

Frank Zappa’s ‘freedom’ lyrics are typically him, an hallucinogenic version, so not for all, with perhaps a tinge of his own cynicism/satire on this freedom trip:

Absolutely Free

Suzy: I don’t do publicity balling for you anymore

FZ: The first word in this song is “discorporate.” It means to leave your body

Discorporate and come with me
Shifting, drifting
Cloudless, starless
Velvet valleys and a sapphire sea, wah wah

Unbind your mind, there is no time
To lick your stamps and paste them in
Discorporate and we will begin, wah wah
(“Flower Power” sucks)

Diamonds on velvets on goldens on Vixen
On Comet and Cupid on Donner and Blitzen
On up and away and afar and a go-go
Escape from the weight of your corporate logo

Unbind your mind, there is no time
To lick your stamps
And paste them in
Discorporate and we’ll begin

Freedom, freedom, kindly loving
You’ll be absolutely free
Only if you want to be

Dreaming on cushions of velvet and satin
To music by magic by people that happen
To enter the world of a strange purple Jell-O
The dreams as they live them are all mellow yellow

Unbind your mind, there is no time
To lick your stamps
And paste them in
Discorporate and we’ll begin

Freedom, freedom, kindly loving
You’ll be absolutely free
Only if you want to be

You’ll be absolutely free
Only if you want to be
