The Fear Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. You Never Know (W.T.N.W.S.) (0:25)
You never know
When the nipples will strike
2. Reflection of Truths (5:39)
Money, money is all you want
Lots of the green motivation
Your only intention is corruption
Use innocence to line your pocket
You wear that face so well
Who knows how many you've got
Smiling your way to the bank
Is the only pleasure that you have

PRE-CHORUS:
Your only talent
Is for deception
I'll remember
To forget you
Bleeding people
Like a sponge
Get your needs
And fill your account

Your disease has no class
It eats away at anyone
The bigger they were or are
The more casualties will fall
One man's hand
Moves so many important mouths
Not quite sure what you want
Control will have to do for now

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS:
Never get caught
Always someone there
Waiting to protect you
Cover up your tracks
Run your business
Invoices clean
Money just appears
From your hands

Nothing has ever stopped you
I FEAR it never will
Buying your way through life
And never falling in debt
Guilt is something you don't know
And have never understood
Just keep building your playground
And don't let anyone in

BRIDGE:
Money
Money
Money
Money
Money - Is all you want
Control - Is all you want
Debt - Is what you'll never have
Happiness - Is what you'll never have

REPEAT CHORUS
3. Insane Ecstasy (4:47)
I wonder why
I wonder why
I can see right through you
My eyes peel
Peel away your layers
Revealing countless, flawless, false people

How do you ever get to sleep
Keep up with your latest lies
You have bitten so many backs
Skin now starts to cover your teeth

You never have told the truth
Afraid of what people may find
You turn friend, friend against friend
It means nothing to your hollow mind

I wonder why
I wonder why
I can see right through you
How do you ever get to sleep
Keep up with your many faces

You are hooked, hooked to your stories
That even you are tempted to believe
Insecurities force you to keep up the game
Your FEAR is one of isolation

As people uncover
Your true colors
You give reasons
But you can't manage

Reasons to help
You justify
I wonder why
I wonder why
4. Humanoia (4:19)
Man is the victim
Man is the culprit
Man is the judge
Man is the jury
Man is responsible for his own fate
His own worst enemy, his own worst FEAR
Living under threat from his creation
Living under threat from the seed he's sown

CHORUS:
Humanoia - Ironic but true
Humanoia - The eternal disease

Life is a circle
A test for us all
One long confusion
A question of sorts
Can we control our animal instincts
Lift ourselves above the animal world
Care for our habitat and for the future
Try to plan ahead instead of regress

REPEAT CHORUS

Struggle for power
Struggle for peace
Struggle for rights
Struggle for life
It's easy to forget pain of others
Distance softens every blow
There's a lot of problems in this world
That have to be dealt with one by one

REPEAT CHPORUS

Only hold questions, hope for answers
Must be a way we can learn
For time to come, preserve our race
We can only learn from our mistakes
Man holds the key
Man holds the cure
Man caused the disease
Man has no answer
5. The Fear (8:04)
You sit and wait for the last straw
Never knowing when crime will strike you down
Society has sentenced you to be a prisoner
A prisoner of your body and your home

CHORUS:
Imagine what it's like
To be imprisoned
In your own home
Not knowing which
Day could be your last
Hide those savings

Now withering away, just like a flower
You curl up and you lie in foetal position
Your life has been reversed, you end it as a child
No longer can you define wring or right

Can you trust
Justice to deal
All fair cards
Or once again
Will the culprit remain free
And the victims of honesty
Left to shiver in solitude
Nothing to comfort, not even truth

Euthanasia isn't your answer
You have your right to live
But the pressure you are under
Means you take more than you give

You're afraid of living
You're afraid of dying
More of you drop each day
Trying to protect your life's work
But we all grow old
And become more vulnerable
Easy prey for the thief
And thus
A PEER OF THE FEAR
6. Blind Aggression (6:43)
You FEAR colour and difference
Try to keep your world pure
Shut our your ignorance
And hide behind your mask
Like Hitler 1940 you ignore sense
Some divine right to eliminate
Teach your young what is right
Breeds the blind for another year

CHORUS
Behind the mask - Blind religion
- Blind attitude
- Blind beliefs
- Blind aggression

BRIDGE
Blind racism
Blind religion
Blind attitude
Blind beliefs
Blind aggression
Blind destruction
Blind violence
Blind murder
Blind people

The more people change
The more they stay the same
Madmen out for some fun
Don't mind the pain they cause
The tip of the iceberg
The crust of the meaning
When you get to the bottom
FEAR is what they FEAR

Chorus
Bridge

Don't you see the truth?
No-one wins in a race war
Prove to me colour is wrong
Before I burn your hood

March in the only colour
That you understand/understand
Challenge the future
Defy the past, defy the past

What is pure?
What is pollution?
Where do you
Draw the line, draw the line?

Never underestimate the power
Of a peaceful man
Draw me your line of death
So I believe that it's real

Blind religion
Blind attitude
Blind beliefs
Blind aggression
7. Life in Forms (5:27)
Here's some paper, spill your history

Nearly each day I enter a world
Of paper people and paper mentalities
The sponge away all my facts
No matter what you want
They have a form for it
So they can file you away
And watch your number
Big brother sounds friendly
And even war looks fun, even war

Life in forms
It fades you away
Nothing left
For the day

Life in forms
It fades you away
Nothing left
For the day

You can't categorise in my eyes

We're sectioned off and kept like mice
Our lives on A4 stacked so high
You must tell all you know
Privacy is something in the past
Hold any secrets if you dare
When you know everything
About a persons life
You can control it
With forms of FEAR, of FEAR

Life in forms
It fades you away
Nothing left
For the day

Life in forms
It fades you away
Nothing left
For the day
8. All I See (5:46)
Trust is something that must be earned
Lessons have to be learnt
Leeches eager for your respect
Trust is what they neglect
With a helpful smile, a generous grin
They push you in
With revenge and malice in your eyes
You fall into their lies

In nothing we trust
Pacifism never taught a lesson
In nothing we trust
I try to trust - Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing

You can ever see into a persons mind
Reveal it's true thoughts
So you're left with no defence
Play along for now
No second changes in this game
Stakes are too high
Liars must be punished
Tolerance is lost

In nothing we trust
Pacifism never taught a lesson
In nothing we trust
I try to trust - Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing

Prolifting from their masquerade
Behind your back
Gambling with your emotions
A sick kind of game
Reputations are sustained for reasons
People don't change
Decide where you stand
And make their fall

In nothing we trust
Pacifism never taught a lesson
In nothing we trust
I try to trust - Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing

Nothing is all I see
is what I feel
in front of me
is what I breathe
is all I hear
Ever hurts me

In nothing we trust
Pacifism never taught a lesson
In nothing we trust
I try to trust - Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing
- Nothing

Truth is what the users FEAR
Truth is what they FEAR
9. Lost in Solitude (5:55)
Most of my life I've felt pain inside
All of the time I've felt FEAR inside
My eyes see and they won't believe
The pressure grips and chokes me
I feel my life has lost its cause
To be lost in solitude forever more

No-one takes notice of me
Lost within the shadows of my dream
TROUBLE - takes me to MY DEATH
