Walking the street with her naked feet
So full of rhythm but I can't find the beat
Snapping her heels clicking her toes
Everybody knows just where she goes

Ah fear, fear, she's the mother of violence
Making me tense to watch the way she breed
Fear, she's the mother of violence
You know self-defense is all you need

It's getting hard to breathe
It's getting so hard to believe 
To believe in anything at all

Mouth all dry eyes, blood shot
Data stored in microdot
Kicking the cloud with my moccasin shoes
T.v. Dinner, T.V. News

Ah 'cause fear 
Fear, she's the mother of violence
Don't make any sense to watch the way she breed
Fear, she's the mother of violence
Making me tense to watch the way she feed

The only way you know she's there
Is the subtle flavor in the air
Getting hard to breathe
Hard to believe in anything at all 
But fear
