FEAR THE FEAR

FEAR THE FEAR

They took away all my toys
Stopped a boy being a boy
All the bats in belfry had flown away
They think their helping me
With diagrams of ‘BUN’ theory
But apparently, I’m off fishing again
Quick! I can feel her lying in wait
And it’s time to self-medicate
A few milligrams should help put the imp to sleep
Ok, maybe it’s a short-term relief
But to be away is such a relief
I served my time for so long upstairs
It’s hard not to fear the fear
It’s hard trying to find reverse
When thinking just makes it worse
Idiosyncratic terminology
All these abbreviations
Just different names but same medications
I maybe catatonic but I look happy
Quick! I can feel her lying in wait
And it’s time to self-medicate
A few milligrams should help put the imp to sleep
Ok, maybe it’s a short-term relief
But to be away is such a relief
I served my time for so long upstairs
It’s hard not to fear the fear
Dead high streets with coffee shops
Ghost towns where no one stops
Every lost soul plugged into their screen
Conversation died a long time ago
A hundred virtual friends that you don’t know
Products of the technological dream
No longer content with what we see
We design augmented designed reality
God’s creations will no longer do
Active lenses fixed into our eyes
24/7 feeds into our lives
Jesus! the power to advertise
WE’RE TELLING YOU WHAT YOU SHOULD EAT
WE’RE TELLING YOU WHAT YOU SHOULD DRINK
WE’RE TELLING YOU WHAT YOU BELIVE
WE’RE TELLING YOU WHAT YOU SHOULD SEE
WE’RE TELLING YOU WHAT YOU SHOULD HEAR
WE’RE TELLING YOU WHO YOU SHOULD FEAR
POWER OF THE GODS IN THE HANDS OF CHILDREN
