​Whatever I Fear

This song is by Toad the Wet Sprocket and appears on the album Coil (1997) and on the compilation album P.S. (A Toad Retrospective) (1999).

There's almost nothin' left
An' you eat my kind for breakfast
What did I expect
To come here and find anyone?
Find open arms to greet me
And friends to feed me
I sicken myself so much
And you eat my kind for breakfast
You eat my kind

Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whenever I let my guard down, whatever I was ignorin'
Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whatever I have been given, whatever I have been

Seeing myself this way
I am a monster I believe
An' seeing is believing
Is there no doubt left?
When I wake up I poison myself
And poison gives no appetite
I sicken myself so much
I sicken myself so

Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whenever I let my guard down, whatever I was ignorin'
Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whatever I have been given, whatever I have been

Did we expect these things to change?
By waking up and suddenly there they are
And all I need's a startin' place
An' nothing ever seemed so hard

Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whenever I let my guard down, whatever I was ignoring
Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whatever I have been given, whatever I have been
Yea, yea
