Fear is the Key

Album: Fear of the Dark (1992)
  • We live our lives in fever
    In a choking sweat of fear
    In the heat of the night you can feel so much
    In the heat of the night I scream
    Don't touch

    I remember a time when we used and abused
    And fought all our battles in vain
    I remember a time we thought that passion was free
    In the heart of the night, bodies aflame

    We live in fever

    I hear your secret heartbeat
    I can hear your silent cries
    The kids have lost their freedom
    And nobody cares till somebody famous dies

    I remember a time when we used and abused
    And fought all our battles in vain
    I remember a time we thought that passion was free
    In the heart of the night, bodies aflame

    We live in fever
    We live in fever

    Now we live, in a world of uncertainty
    Fear is the key, to what you want to be
    You don't get a say
    The majority gets its way
    You're outnumbered by the bastards
    Till the day you die

    I hear your silent heartbeat
    I hear your silent cries
    Oh your just in lies, lies and lies

    The kids have lost their freedom
    And nobody cares till somebody famous dies
    Keep telling lies and lies and lies and lies and lies and lies and lies and lies and lies and lies
    Ah ah ah

    I remember the time when we used and abused
    Ah, it was just lies
    I remember the time we thought that passion was free
    Ah, it was just lies and lies and lies and lies and lies and lies and lies

    Hear the night oh
    We live in fever
    We live in fever
    We live in fever

    Now we live in a world of insanity
    Fear is the key to what you want to be
    You don't get a say the majority gets it's way
    You're outnumbered by the bastards till the day you dieWriter/s: BRUCE DICKINSON, JANICK GERS

    First.
  • Craig from California Los AngelesNah. Not AIDS. Nothing else describes it. That one line is a certain context. I thinks its more to do with peoples natural fear of the unknown. You know what I'm saying?
