Freudiana

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

An introduction to the world of Sigmunf Freud


I was alone in my room

Feeling sorry for myself

Call me a prophet of doom

I could think of nothing else

I found a Freudian book

Gathering dust upon my shelf

I thought I'll give it a look

Would it hurt or would it help


Freudiana, do you want to be somebody

Freudiana, do you want to change the world


I met the Wolfman and the Ratman

Anna O. and Little Hans

They were walking on a tightrope

I never thought they had a chance

And then a hand reached out to hold them

Just before they tumbled down

But I was standing in a quicksand

And I could not feel the ground


Freudiana, do you want to be somebody

Freudiana, do you want to change the world


I look back and I try to find

The part of me that I don't know

I won't stop till I see the truth

There's such a long way to go


I saw a picture of a stranger

But I didn't understand

He had a ring around his finger

And something burning in his hand

And I wanted him to teach me

And I needed to believe

But the shadows that he threw me

Were intended to deceive


Freudiana, do you want to be somebody

Freudiana, do you want to change the world
