Song Lyrics

"No Thief Like Fear"

by Jason Gray
Album: A Way to See in the Dark

Fear will take the best of us
Then come back for the rest of us
Its rabid hunger never satisfied
It's closer than a brother
And more jealous than a lover
Who holds you while it swallows you alive
Let down your guard
And it will steal your heart

There's no thief like fear, no
There's no thief like fear, no
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

I've tried to blame bureaucracy
The weak-knees of hypocrisy
And the cruel and shifting winds of circumstance
But I know insecurity
Is the worst of my own enemies
He sings his lonely tune and I will dance
As he robs me blind
Right before my eyes

Set me free, set me free
Oh my God set me free
From the chains holding me
Oh my God set me free

I am free, I am free
Oh my God has rescued me
From these chains I am released
For my God has set me free
