Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

in disgust (they are dead?)
i watch the children play
i watch their tiny hands

see my hand [?]
backstabber, leave me alone
what's wrong with me?
cause i've tried everything

i'll give you my heart if you come and take me away
i'm lost in your madness, little girl, but your madness can't stop my pain
no your madness can't stop my pain
you're not trying to

mother fuck
the fear is back

the fear is back
the fear is back
the fear is back
the fear is back
no place to hide my shamefulness
no place to hide my discontent
no place to hide my shamefulness

mother fuck
the fear is back

in disgust
i watch the children play
i watch their little hands

see my hand
backstabbers, leave me alone
what's wrong with me?
cause i've tried everything

I had an argument with a friend a while back over whether it was mother fuck or mother's touch. he thought mother's touch and I told him that that was ridiculous.

The Fear

In disgust
I watch the children play
I watch their tiny hands

See my eyes
Backstabber, leave me alone
What's wrong with me?
What's wrong with me?
What's wrong with me?

Cuz I've tried everything ...

I'll give you my heart if you come and take me away
I'm lost in your madness little girl but your madness can't stop my pain
No your madness can't stop my pain

And i'm trying to (trying to)

Motherfuck, the fear is back
The fear is back
The fear is back
The fear is back
The fear is back

No place to hide my shamefulness
No place to hide my discontent
No place to hide my shamefulness
No place to hide my discontent

Motherfuck, the fear is back

In disgust
I watch the children play
I watch their tiny hands

See my eyes
Backstabbers, leave me alone
What's wrong with me?
What's wrong with me?
What's wrong with me?

Cuz I've tried everything …

You forgot "they are dead" after the first line. You hear it in the FLAC version but it is harder on mp3 :sneaky:

I'm wondering if this song is referencing 'The Fear' as in drug related paranoia/anxiety. Hunter S Thompson coined that phrase and I myself have though "mother fuck the fear is back" when on something and the effects of it freaking me out. Anyone also think that could be the meaning behind that? Also the "What's wrong with me?" Lyric also goes along with that idea.

I don't know. I get 'the Fear' and think "what's wrong with me?" very often throughout my life whilst completely sober.

Could be existential fear. I definitely feel the Fear sometimes.

This song is fucking incredible.

The fear is always the most treacherous feeling that one can have. Never have I thought the fear would catch up to me. I just love the lyrics. It is a hundred percent true when it comes to my life.
