Afraid of the dark Afraid of the light Don't walk in the park Afraid of the night Afraid to get stabbed Or hit by a car Afraid of the streets Afraid to go far Afraid of the sky Don't like to be high I don't want to fall Afraid I might die Afraid of my friends Don't like to be seen Afraid to be nice Afraid to be mean Afraid that the wind Will knock over trees Afraid of my dog Afraid of his fleas
[chorus] Peace of mind Hard to keep Hard to find Look ahead Look behind Looking for Peace of mind Can't relax Can't unwind Deep inside Secret mind OH NO!
Afraid to be caught Afraid to be free Afraid to make love Afraid of VD Afraid of the rain Don't like to get wet Afraid to take drugs They make me forget Afraid that the air Will make me get sick Afraid that a girl Will cut off my....OH!
Someone tell me how it happened Why my head is so confused Can it be my circuits finally blew a fuse Can a human being really change into a humanoid Or is my imagination paranoid All I need is peace and quiet, maybe just a little time Turn the channel, turn the channel piece of mind
Afraid of success Afraid to grow old Afraid that my brain Is covered with mold Afraid that I might Ce put on a shelf But that's not the least, oh, OH! Afraid of MYSELF
