"Fear" as written by and Clarkson Lauzon....
Guilt reflects
And then leaves the rest to me
It started with a flash of light
Off his grip was loose and just a bit
There's a constant slip out of the positive
And you waste more perfect time than you tend to give

[Chorus]
All the fear and all the cares of the world
Never forced themselves into my arms
It was your fear that helped me
Your fear that got me to move
Straight from your heart into their sight

Grace and hope
I share along the way
It ended with a twist of fate
And now the hearts are breaking just a bit
And the consequence was a negative
So you killed more precious lives then you had let live

All the fear and all the cares of the world
Never forced themselves into my arms
It was your fear that helped me
Your fear that got me to move
Straight from your heart into their sight

For shame on you
Who cares about me anyway
I don't mind you
It would mean so much if you would just save me
Save me

All the fear and all the cares of the world
Never forced themselves into my arms
It was your fear that helped me
Your fear that got me to move
Straight from your heart into their sight

    General CommentIt's cares of the world. Not in the world.

    And it's It'd mean so much. Not to much.

    Also, it's perfect time than*

    And, it's into their* sight.

    Now, as for the song itself, I think it's utterly amazing. The new album builds off of the old one and grows from it.

    As for this particular song, it seems like he's talking to a loved one who abandoned him, in one way or another.

    General CommentMostly accurate, but after listening to several parts repeatedly, I believe these are the exact lyrics:

    The guilt reflects
    And then leaves the rest to me
    It started with a flash of light
    Off his grip was loose and just a bit
    There's a constant slip out of the positive
    And you waste more perfect time than you have to give

    All the fear and all the cares of the world
    Never forced themselves into my arms
    It was your fear that helped me
    Fear that got me to move
    Straight from your heart into their sight

    The grace and hope
    I share along the way
    It ended with a twist of fate
    And now the hearts are breaking just a bit
    And the consequence was a negative
    So you killed more precious lives than you had let live

    All the fear and all the cares of the world
    Never forced themselves into my arms
    It was your fear that helped me
    Fear that got me to move
    Straight from your heart into their sight

    For shame on you
    Who cares about me anyway
    I don't mind you
    It'd mean to much if you just save me
    Save me

    All the fear and all the cares of the world
    Never forced themselves into my arms
    It was your fear that helped me
    Fear that got me to move
    Straight from your heart into their sight

    General CommentI'm thinking that maybe it means he got through a relationship and learned a lot from it that he can use for his future.

    Prolly way off, but AMAZING song nonetheless

    General CommentDoes anybody see this song in kind of a political way? I was listening to it one day and it struck me that it could be talking to the president in the voice of a soldier. I hate political songs like no other, but if this one is, it does it well.

    I'm not sure why I think of it like this, just a few lines stick out at me.

    "All the fear and all the cares of the world never forced themselves into my arms" Talking about, I think, how a soldier chooses to enlist, chooses to fight, chooses to die for his country, that he's not forced into it.

    "It was your fear that helped me, fear that got me to move" The president's fear of nuclear weaponry and terrorism that got the soldier speaking to enlist in the army.

    "Straight from you heart into their sight" The president's desire to get Saddam went right from his heart to what everyone wanted, including soldiers who had to go over their to physically do it

    I think it tells how at first everyone was for the war and for invading Iraq to save the world from evil. But slowly, people started to realize the war for the mass stupidity it was ("There was a constant slip out of the positive")

    The second verse goes into this more, how people are starting to be against it, to see that it was the wrong move to make, and how the pres. keeps shipping more and more people over there to die "(You killed more precious lives than you had let live,")

    The bridge, I think, is talking to the president directly. "For shame on you, who cares about me anyway?" (Who cares about the life of one soldier in the scheme of things, certainly not the president who only wants MORE people)

    "I don't mind you" probably meaning the soldier doesn't personally dislike the president, just what he's doing

    "It'd mean so much if you'd just save me, save me" In other words, get me the holy hell out of here before I die.

    I dunno if anyone else sees this or not, but once I've seen it I can't unsee it, so it's the meaning I'm stuck with. I don't know if it fits perfectly, but it makes sense to me.

    I'm not using this as an excuse to go into a politcal rant either, this is just what I honestly swear to god this song says to me.

    General CommentActually, some of the lyrics are wrong. When it says 'Off his grip' it's actually 'A fist's grip'. Also, it's not 'it was your fear that helped me' but 'it was your fear that held me'. In the chorus, instead of 'sight' it's 'sights'. I got all of this from the album pamphlet.
