Can you feel it? Watching you
C      F/C C     F/C  C   F/C
In the darkness, touching you
       F/C C
Like a sickness
Ab   Gm/C F         F/C C
Fear is   taking control

The beachhead is the street
In the gutter lies defeat
Fear is the key to your soul

               F/C   C7

And you're so far out of tune
       Ab/C  Gm/C   F
Better learn how to sing

Fences, we put up defenses
Then we come to our senses
It may keep them out but it keeps us in

And that makes us dangerous
We're all dangerous
To ourselves

[brige]
