why then am I so afraid?
afraid for the starving children who need my contribution
when it's three o'clock in the morning and I'm watching my television
Afraid for my loved ones
afraid they'll leave me alone
afraid there's no heaven
and hell's on the phone
Afraid for my job, I'll wake up and it's gone
afraid of my neighbors, and of the cops in town
In fact, if you gave me a chance
I'd be afraid of everyone different than me
I'd be afraid I'm not afraid enough
but I'm afraid that to be so afraid
misses the point, you see:
I live in a country with the greatest military in the history of the world;
why can't they protect me?
