Can you feel it? watching you in the darkness

Touching you like a sickness

Fear is taking control,

The beach head is the street.

In the gutter lies defeat.

Fear is the key to your soul

That makes you dangerous

So dangerous to yourself



Can you feel it in the shadows?

Watching you, touching you,

Can you feel it in the shadows?

Watching you, touching you

Changing you into a mad dog.

Howling at the moon.

And you're so far out of tune

Better learn how to sing.

Fences, we put up our defences.

Then we come to our senses.

It may keep them out

But it keeps us in

And that makes us dangerous

We're all dangerous to ourselves



This is a jungle, not illusion,

Jungle city, in confusion,

We are the next step in evolution,

The new stone age, revolution.

Back to the stone age, constitution

No solution



Can you feel it in the shadows?

Watching you, touching you,

Can you feel it in the shadows?

Follow you, swallow you.

Can you feel it?

Fear is the key.

Can you feel it?

Fear is the key.

Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

Fear is the key to your soul
