Story about this misheard lyric by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe

I actually thought that this was a callback to the Rob Zombie song "Superbeast" (The singer from PM5K is actually Rob Zombie's brother). Now I'm kinda disappointed...

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Free"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Living so free is a tragedy
When you can't be what you want to be
Living so free is a tragedy
When you can't see what you need to see
Why They're Repetitive:
Basically the whole song is these lyrics or a variation of them.
