Oingo Boingo – I'm Afraid lyrics

Afraid of the dark
Afraid of the light
Don't walk in the park
Afraid of the night
Afraid to get stabbed
Or hit by a car
Afraid of the streets
Afraid to go far
Afraid of the sky
Don't like to be high
I don't want to fall
Afraid I might die
Afraid of my friends
Don't like to be seen
Afraid to be nice
Afraid to be mean
Afraid that the wind
Will knock over trees
Afraid of my dog
Afraid of his fleas

[Chorus:]
Peace of mind
Hard to keep
Hard to find
Look ahead
Look behind
Looking for
Peace of mind
Can't relax
Can't unwind
Deep inside
Secret mind
Oh no!

Afraid to be caught
Afraid to be free
Afraid to make love
Afraid of vd
Afraid of the rain
Don't like to get wet
Afraid to take drugs
They make me forget
Afraid that the air
Will make me get sick
Afraid that a girl
Will cut off my.... Oh!

Someone tell me how it happened
Why my head is so confused
Can it be my circuits finally blew a fuse
Can a human being really change into a humanoid
Or is my imagination paranoid
All I need is peace and quiet, maybe just a little time
Turn the channel, turn the channel piece of mind

[repeat chorus]

Afraid of success
Afraid to grow old
Afraid that my brain
Is covered with mold
Afraid that I might
Ce put on a shelf
But that's not the least, oh, oh!
Afraid of myself
