Fear and Loathing

Album: Electra Heart (2011)
  • I've lived a lot of different lives
    Been different people many times
    I live my life in bitterness
    And fill my heart with emptiness

    And now I see, I see it for the first time
    There is no crime in being kind
    Not everyone is out to screw you over
    Maybe, oh just maybe they just wanna get to know ya

    Now the time is here
    Baby, you don't have to live your life in fear
    And the sky is clear
    Is clear of fear

    Don't wanna live in fear and loathing
    I wanna feel like I am floating
    Instead of constantly exploding
    In fear and loathing

    Got different people inside my head
    I wonder which one that they like best
    I'm done with tryin' to have it all
    And endin' up with not much at all

    And now the time is here
    Baby you don't have to live your life in fear
    And the sky is clear
    Is clear of fear
    Of fear

    Don't wanna live in fear and loathing
    I wanna feel like I am floating
    Instead of constantly exploding
    In fear and loathing

    And when the time comes along and the lights run out
    I know where I will belong when they blow me out

    Don't wanna live in fear and loathing
    I wanna feel like I am floating
    Instead of constantly exploding
    In fear and loathing

    I wanna be completely weightless
    I wanna touch the edge of greatness
    Don't wanna be completely faithless
    Completely faithless

    When the time comes around
    When the lights will go out
    When the time comes around
    When the lights they go out Writer/s: MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS
