Shoot your fears
ain't no reason to
shoot your fears
ain't no good in it.

And if your fears come to be true
then: Shoot the truth!

Follow your fears
fear goes far
follow your own footsteps
see where they dig
your grave.

Learn from it'n' keep it in mind
and stab their backs!
No warning!
Shoot from behind
it's the first time, it's fair.
