I see you looking over your shoulder
Tell me who do you think's out there
You're reaching for your four leaf clover
But baby there ain't no luck down there
I swear that there's no heart in this city
It's here the slogan reads
"Do your time" everybody's doing
Their sentence
It's just there ain't nobody here
Who knows just what's the crime
I watched my father live a lie here
I'd rather die than fade away
I read the rules
And yeah I know them
Still you ain't ever gonna
Make me play the game of
Fear
Fear
Fear
Fear

Running with the rats
Through the city
Makes you feel like you're
A partner in crime
Girl once you won't stop to watch
That little girl did

Hey baby won't you stop and hear me
Just being here we're
Breathing heart attacks
We can run and chase
The setting sun we can run
And we won't ever look back

Take my hand I know we'll make it
I'll let nothing slow us down
I know you want to curse
This place but there's only
One thing that's stopping us now

Fear fear fear
Of a new thing
Fear fear fear
Of the brass ring

You ain't one for taking chances
You work and live and breathe that 9 to 5
Still that's what you call living
That's surviving to me

And surviving is living to die in
Fear
