Fear Of Freedom

This song is by Poison Girls and appears on the album Where's The Pleasure (1982).

Falling back headlong
To the start of it all
You fell back screaming
The original fall
You fell to earth between
Your mother's knees
Bayoneted by the need to please

Children - listen - shiver - listen
Your story - my story - our story
Old familiar carrion crow
Junk impresario road show

Watch out
For the spiders of compulsion
Watch out
For the spinners of submission

Trussed up and paralyzed
They've got you where they want you
They leave you there to die
They've got you where they want you

You fight for your life
Held back by fear of falling
You fight for your life
Held back by fear of feeling
You fight for your life
Held back by fear of freedom
Your only fear - the fear of freedom

Why do you think that
They are laughing?
Because they've got you
Where they want you

They already got your number,
Got your picture, stole it from you
They already got your picture,
Got your story, wrote the ending
They already got your future,
Got your children, stole them from you
They gave no explanation, they gave
No explanation, no explanation

They already built the fences,
Clipped your feathers, built your tethers
They already got your rivers,
Stole the pastures, stole them from you
They already got your future,
Got your children, stole them from you
They gave no explanation, they gave
No explanation, no explanation

Why do you think that
They are laughing?
Because they've got you
Where they want you

They taught you fear of falling
They taught you fear of feeling
They taught you fear of freedom.

Fear of freedom
Fear of freedom
Fear of freedom
Fear of freedom
