Tragically Hip – Scared lyrics

I could make you scared if you want me to
I'm not prepared, but if I have to
I said I can make you scared
It's kinda what I do
If you are prepared
Here is what I propose to do
You're in Russia
And more than a million works of art
Are whisked out to the woods
When the Nazis find the whole place dark
They think God's
Left the museum for good

I make you scared, that's what I do
If you're prepared, if I have to
If I make you scared and you'll pay me to
If that's the deal
Now here's what I can do for you
There's a focus group that can prove
That is all nothing but cold calculation

Tests have shown that suspicious or hostile
Their lives need not be shortened
Truth be told
They can live a long, long while
Tickled to death by their importance

If you make me scared
If that's what you do
If I'm unclear can I get out of this thing
With me and you
If you feel scared or a bit confused
I gotta say This sounds a little beyond anything I am used to

Now there a precious few
That can prove that at the root
That is all nothing but cold calculation

Clearly entranced you're leaning back now
Defanged destroyer limps into the bay
Down at the beach it's attracting quite a crowd
As kids wade through blood out to it and play

Ok you make me scared you did what you set out to do
I'm not prepared, you really had me going there for a minute or two
He said, you make me scared too,
I wasn't sure I was getting through
I gotta go, it's been a pleasure doing business with you.
