Song Description

This is about how people hide their fear with other behavior and, even if they seem rude, they're often just scared.

Story Behind the Song

Soon after I moved to LA, I was at a bar with a friend when a man approached us and began making racist remarks. I told him off. When I got home, I realized that, though I hadn't shown it, I had been terrified.

Lyrics

"Scared"

I am new to this town, I'm just getting around
I don't know who my friends really are
So I don't let anyone in too far
And if you think I am rude, you don't know the truth
I'm Scared

I have been on my own, I always end up alone
No one has ever been there for me
'Though many have lied when they said that they tried
I have learned not to trust, I've been hurt way too much
So now I'm scared

And 'though I try like hell to keep a smile on my face
I'm always staking out a place to hide
And you may think that I am much too precious for your taste
But if you look behind that you will find

That I'm scared, I'm so scared
I'm scared, I'm just scared

'Cause I have told myself be more like everyone else
But then when I try, I ask myself why
'Cause we're not so very different inside
We're all playing a game, we just don't act the same
When we're scared

And I'm scared, I'm so scared
Yes, I'm scared, I'm just scared
When we're scared, we're so scared
And I'm scared, I'm just scared...
