I’m a terminal disease,
I make you weak to your knees.
I engulf every part of your being
And make you see what is unseen.
I consume right down to the marrow of the bone
I’ll leave you cold, ashamed and all alone.
I am the cause of sleepless nights and dream-state days
I turn bright sunny days into ones filled with clouds and rain.
I amputate and freeze limbs
I make the mind go round in circles, again and again.
I am a toxin, oh so toxic to human growth
And there’s no breathing till I’m exhaled out of the soul.
I give birth to regret, I am the wellspring of tears
Hello all, my name is Fear.
