  • Throw that Bob-Marley-wannabe motherfucker out of here

    Fade

    Underneath the skin and jewelry
    Hidden in her words and eyes
    Is a wall that's cold and ugly
    And she's scared as hell

    Trembling at the thought of feeling
    Wide awake and keeping distance
    Nothing seems to penetrate her
    'Cause she's scared as hell
    I am frightened too
    I am frightened
    Oh no, oh-oh

    Trembling at the thought of feeling
    Wide awake and keeping distance
    Nothing seems to penetrate her
    'Cause she's scared as hell
    I am frightened too
    I am frightened

    Wide awake and
    Keeping distance from my soul
    Wide awake and
    Keeping distance from my soul

    Fade

    Underneath the skin and jewelry
    Hidden in her words and eyes
    Is a wall that's cold and ugly
    And she's scared as hell

    Trembling at the thought of feeling
    Wide awake and keeping distance
    Nothing seems to penetrate her
    'Cause she's scared as hell
    I am frightened too
    I am frightened too
    I am scared like you
    I am frightened Writer/s: Adam Jones, Daniel Carey, Maynard James Keenan, Paul M D'Amour
