    Lyrics

    i'm scared of swimming in the sea
    dark shapes moving under me
    every fear i swallow makes me small
    inconsequential things occur
    alarms are triggered
    memories stir
    it's not the way it has to be

    i'm afraid of what i do not know
    i hate being undermined
    i'm afraid i can be devil man
    and i'm scared to be divine
    don't mess with me my fuse is short
    beneath this skin these fragments caught

    when i allow it to be
    there's no control over me
    i have my fears
    but they do not have me

    walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
    the deeper i go, the darker it gets
    i peer through the window
    knock at the door
    and the monster i was
    so afraid of
    lies curled up on the floor
    is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

    i cry until i laugh

    i'm afraid of being mothered
    with my balls shut in the pen
    i'm afraid of loving women
    and i'm scared of loving men
    flashbacks coming in every night
    don't tell me everything's alright

    when i allow it to be
    it has no control over me
    i own my fear
    so it doesn't own me

    walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
    the deeper i go, the darker it gets
    i peer through the window
    knock at the door
    and the monster i was
    so afraid of
    lies curled up on the floor
    is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

    i cry until i laugh
