There's so much panic in this world
But we are living in the best
Of all possible worlds

[Chorus:]
Fear of the world
No fear, no fear of the world

Deep inside of me
Well I got this wanderlust
Remember how we talked last night?
Well it's just as we discussed
Ashes turn to ashes
Cash turns to dust
There's no one in this world right now
You think you can trust

No real bruises I can show
Traveling the world on the radio
No real scars I can display
Burning up tomorrow into yesterday

[Chorus]

Deep inside of me
In the seat of my pants
There's a pain as big and hard
As a civil disturbance
Conquer all your fears
Seize every chance
In the end make fear your friend
And change your circumstance

No real bruises I can show
Traveling the world on the radio
No real scars I can display
Burning up tomorrow into yesterday

[Chorus x 2]
