Fear Is a Man's Best Friend

This song is by John Cale and appears on the album Fear (1974).

This song has been covered by Billy Bragg under the title "Fear Is a Man's Best Friend".
Standing waiting for a man to show
Wide-eyed, one eye fixed on the door
This waiting's killing me, it's wearing me down
Day in day out, my feet are burning holes in the ground

Darkness warmer than a bedroom floor
Want someone to hold me close forever more
I'm a sleeping dog, but you can't tell
When I'm on the prowl you'd better run like hell
You know it makes sense, don't even think about it
Life and death are just things that you do when you're bored

Say fear's a man's best friend
Say fear's a man's best friend
Say fear's a man's best friend
You add it up it brings you down
You add it up it brings you down

Home is living like a man on the run
Trails leading nowhere, where to my son?
We're already dead, but not yet in the ground
Take my helping hand I'll show you around
You know it makes sense, don't even think about it
Life and death are just things you do when you're bored

Say fear's a man's best friend
Say fear's a man's best friend
Say fear's a man's best friend
You add it up it brings you down
You add it up it brings you down
