"Because You're Frightened" as written by and David/mc Geogh Tomlinson....
You love me because you're frightened
And I'm falling in love with you
Because I'm getting frightened
Of the things you somehow make me do

You love me because you're frightened
I can easily believe my eyes
Your fear is my finest hour
My fear is your disguise

Look what fear's done to my body
Look what fear's done to my body

Look what fear's done to my body
Look what fear's done to my body

A frightening world
Is an interesting world to be in
In the forbidden city
Or on the roof of the world
Or at the receiving end
Of the nine o'clock news
However you put your mind to it
You can find fear where you choose

Look what fear's done to my body
Look what fear's done to my body

Look what fear's done to my body
Look what fear's done to my body

You wanna hurt
You wanna crave
You want to praise and curse and blame
You wanna believe just what you like
Then you wanna hurt and crave again

They took you to the top of the mountain
They showed you the valley
You bought it
You couldn't wait, could you

Look what fear's done to my body
Look what fear's done to my body

Look what fear's done to my body
Look what fear's done to my body

You wanna hurt
You wanna crave
You want to praise and curse and blame
You wanna believe just what you like
Then you wanna hurt and crave again

You want to hurt and crave again
You want to hurt and crave again
You want to hurt and crave again
You want to hurt and crave again
Crave again, crave again, crave again
Crave again, crave again, crave again, crave again, crave again

    General CommentSeems to be about a few things... not a narrative per se, but an abstract mix of fear/love imagery.

    Also has the usual Magazine disdain for the narrow, unconsciously hypocritical views of the average person (perhaps someone Devoto dated?) That is, people say they don't want to be in fear, but in fact they love it: "a frightening world is an interesting world to be in." And people actually can't wait to wield their cruelty/fear against others: "you want to hurt, you want to crave...you want to praise and curse and blame" and "you wanna believe just what you like."
