I am not afraid of the world
and the world is not afraid of me.
Well, actually that’s not completely true
because the world is a frightening place
filled with dark alleys around every corner
and people who aren’t what they seem to be.
I could say that the world is just unknown to me,
but this sky’s been here since the beginning
and sometimes it’s dark, but sometimes it’s light
and the monsters can’t hide from me.
I’ve got eyes open wide
and a firm grip on life
on this planet that can’t let me go.
I am slightly afraid of the world
but then again,
maybe the world’s slightly afraid of me.
