Fear Of The World

 

 

words and music written by Ez Jon Erikson copyright control 2002

 

Why do I look both ways
When I'm crossin' a one way street
Why do I wash my hands
After shakin' the hand of every stranger I meet
Why do I admit defeat before I even start to compete
  
Got this fear of the world
Got this fear of the world
An instinct to survive
A fight to stay alive
Got this fear of the world
Of the world
  
When my head starts to hurt
Why do I worry somethin's wrong with my brain
I'll never go abroad
Too scared to travel by boat or plane
Why do I duck in case a brick comes through the window
When I'm on the train
  
Got this fear of the world
Got this fear of the world
I'm terrified, but it's justified
Got this fear of the world
Of the world
 
Afraid to go out
Shot on your doorstep
Afraid to stay in
Murdered whilst in bed
Can I find me a place untouched by human hands
I never look at anyone
In case my nose gets broken
And I'm the one who’s penalised
When my car gets stolen
Sometimes I wish I could just bury my head in the sand
 
Got this fear of the world
Got this fear of the world
An instinct to survive
A fight to stay alive
Got this fear of the world
Of the world
Fear of the world
