My mother's afraid of the subway 
It's a living bad dream 
I hold her hand as the doors close
And she pales and stifles a scream 
Ali's afraid of Ad-libbing
Of improvising at jams
She is not very happy right now
And spends all her money on grams 
Ade is afraid of commitment 
So Carla dumped him today 
She is very disappointed 
She was hoping he'd beg her to stay
Ayo he just wants a girlfriend 
He's afraid of dying alone
He doesn't go out very much
Sits at home a lot getting stoned

You see fear is only holding us back
Look closely amongst all your peeps  There is usually one thing that keeps 
Us off track 
It is fear, It is fear, It is fear

Ella is worried about her weight 
She won't eat in public anymore
She is fucking her ex again 
When they've finished 
She sleeps on the floor 
Nate has a heart of gold
But give it away he will not
His mother abandoned him at ten
It's a pain he has never forgot
Mary's afraid of herself 
Her sentences often cut half
She will never give her own opinion 
She's afraid that people might laugh 
And I am afraid of sharks 
I will not swim out past my head
And sometimes I worry 
My boyfriend will die
My first love is already dead

You see fear is only holding us back
Look closely amongst all your peeps  There is usually one thing that keeps 
Us off track 
It is fear, It is fear, It is fear

You see fear is only holding us back
Look closely amongst all your peeps  There is usually one thing that keeps 
Us off track 
It is fear, It is fear, It is fear

 Candy is having a baby
She fears she will be like her mom
Her friends say relax take a
Deep breath 
And march to a different drum
 Sachas afraid of her Marco 
She think's that it's all her fault 
But if he did what he does to a
 Stranger 
He'd be locked up and charged 
With assault 

You see fear is only holding us back
Look closely amongst all your peeps  There is usually one thing that keeps 
Us off track 
It is fear, it is fear, it is fear
