Lily Allen - "The Fear"


So yes, I have her album and it's not bad... definitely for the females but music is music and I like music and this is music.

So there's this song called "The Fear" and it reminds me what people want to see ahead of them and how they lose themselves in the process. The song starts off with "I want to be rich and I want lots of money" and f*ck yeah who wouldn't? And as the song goes on, she lists all the things she wants and starts to disregard the things that are even more important.

Just a reminder that whenever you want to give yourselves a reality check and if you're on track, a mirror has all the answers. You can see yourself see yourself for who you are and who you've become.

That "fear" she speaks of in my opinion is the fear of not seeing yourself anymore.

Lyrics below:
Artist: Lily Allen Song: The Fear Album: It's Not Me, It's You

I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘Cuz everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner

[Chorus]
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars cussing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so fucking fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
and its not my fault it’s how I’m programmed to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah we're on to a winner

Chorus
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

[Bridge]
Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
Now everything's cool as long as I’m getting thinner

[Chorus]
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cause I’m being taken over by fear
