Mother Fear by Backyard Babies

Written by Kevin Bacon
"Kind of exploring the role that fear plays in my life. Thanks to Trav for the cool lick." KB
She'll wake you in the morning
As she fills your head at night
She'll drop by, without warning
Just when you thought you were doing all right
You think she's far away in California
But she has never been so near
Mother fear
She was there the day you turned your cheek
She led you from the fight
She was in your throat, when you couldn't speak
She sings harmony tonight
She knew just were you lived
She brought the sedatives
She brought the whiskey and the beer
Mother fear, Mother fear, Mother fear
That peaceful feeling's so deceiving
You check the kids to see they're breathing
And as you watch your house come tumbling down
She stands beside you in the rubble
She'll be the first to recognize the sound
Of the bursting of the bubble
And as you prance and pose
In your new emperor's clothes
She'll get the crowd to laugh and cheer
And here she comes
Mother fear, Mother fear
Year after year after year
