I'm Scared And I Know And I Love



I'm scared if I don't clean my teeth twice a day they'll fall out
I'm scared if I eat a burger I'll get fat
I'm scared that if I don't spend I'll become afraid
I'm scared if I spend too much I'll lose everything
I'm scared that my skins blotchy
I'm scared I'm ugly
I'm scared of terrorists
I'm scared of eco terrorists
I'm scared of boys wearing makeup
I'm scared of f*gs
I'm scared of drugs
I'm scared of death
I'm scared of not keeping busy
I'm scared of what people will think
I'm scared of what they already think
I'm scared people will see me spying
I'm scared of the Cheshire Cat
I'm scared I love
I'm scared I'm empty and they know
I'm scared I care and they know
I love to work
I know I'm dumb
I know I'm ignorant
I'm scared that I'm scared
I'm scared because I'm one of you
I'm scared so I'll consume
