"Fear Is The Key" as written by Bruce Dickinson and Janick Gers....
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

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

    General CommentThis song is about how people used to be able to have sex and not really have to worry about anything, but now that AIDS are around people have to be very carful before having sex because they may end up cathcing AIDS and dying. The quote "Nobody cares until sombody famous dies" is about when Freddie Mercury died from AIDS and everyone got scared. Very good song.
