"Fear" as written by Atticus Ross, Leopold Ross and Claudia Sarne....
Are you scared of the dark?
Are you afraid they'll break your heart?
Are you afraid you'll lose yourself?
Are you afraid of your own health?

Are you scared to lose?
Are you afraid to choose?
Are you afraid you'll win?
Are you scared of your own sin?

Are you scared to forgive?
Are you afraid to live?
Are you afraid to die?
Do you think it's all a lie -

To live
When you think you're dying
To laugh
When you feel like crying
To stand
When you think you're gonna fall
It's just fear after all
It's only fear after all

Are you afraid you'll be alone?
Are you scared to pick up the phone?
Are you scared of the past?
Do you think that you might crash?
Do you think you're in too deep?

Are you afraid to sleep?
Are you scared there's no stability?
Are you afraid of your own fragility?

To live
When you think you're dying
To laugh
When you feel like crying
To stand
When you think you're gonna fall
It's just fear after all
It's only fear after all

To mend
When you think you're breaking
To strength
When you know you're shaking
To pray
When your back's against the wall

It's only fear after all

Are you scared of the end?
Are you scared to begin?
Are you scared of the start?
Do you think they'll break your heart?
Do you think they'll break your heart?

To live
When you think you're dying
To laugh
When you feel like crying
To stand
When you think you're gonna fall
It's just fear after all
It's only fear after all

It's only fear...
The only fear is fear itself
The only fear is fear itself
The only fear is fear itself
It's only fear...
