Fear and Trembling Lyrics

Fear and Trembling (畏惧与颤栗) - Gang of Youths

Written by:David Le'aupepe

There's a moosehead hanging

From a wall at a bar at a

Nondescript part of the street

 

There's a long haired boy

 

Making eyes at a john

 

By the lamplights hung from the beams

 

We're at the stumbling phase

Of the midnight waltz

 

At a bookend to the weirdest of weeks

 

Me and Arnold walk

 

Pretty hammered and crying

Hey I'll miss you man when you leave

 

Yeah I'll miss you when you leave

 

'Coz there are feelings that are strong

And there are ones that are mixed

 

At the dawn of my young life's eclipse

 

I was a boy once now

 

I'm a kind of adult

 

Catching up on the cool sh*t I missed

 

'Coz we were raised where the pastors

They danced in the aisles

 

With a moshpit up front full of youths

 

So if faith is to lose

 

The mind to win God

 

Then I guess I got nothing to prove

 

I guess I got nothing to prove

 

I was waiting on the future

 

But the future only came

 

In the form of greying matter

In my only father's brain

I'm not afraid of acquiescing

To the trials of his old age

 

But of missing all the humanness

He'll show when I'm away

 

And the part of me unspoken

 

And the part that's self assured

 

Are belligerents divergent

In a psychic civil war

 

But I'm a crier and a fighter

Not a faker and a fraud

 

So if losing my religion

Is the way to finding God

Then light it up

 

The shadow's in my blood

 

Oh a weary heart they say

It shatters it all

 

So light it up

 

It's bound to be much worse

 

When you get get get get back to the summer

If you get get get get back to the summer at all

 

There's an omen now of frailty

Hanging heavy from my face

A kind of existential loneliness

That struts and frets a stage

And disappears unsatiated by

The rhythms of the day

 

Still illuminating nothing

But the love I turn away

 

And I still care about the present

 

And the weight of circumstance

 

To the muckraking of cowards

 

And a symphony of sass

While I have questions of mortality

 

The clear and present vast

They just yell the words pretentious

With no clarity or class

So light 'em up

 

Their shadows in my blood

 

Oh a weary heart they say

It shatters it all

 

So line 'em up

 

It's bound to be much worse

 

Oh when you get get get get back to the summer

If you get get get get back to the summer

When you get get back to the summer

If you get get get get back to the summer at all

 

One time

 

I feel everything

 

Yeah I feel it all

 

And I feel it in my bones and in my f**king skull

I feel everything

 

Yeah I feel it all

And I never look back

 

Oh and I feel it in my heart attack

 

And I feel it all

 

I feel everything

 

And I know it's weird

And I fought the fear and trembling

 

'Coz I feel it all

 

I feel everything

 

And I never looked back

This fear this fear is trembling

 

And I waited on forever

 

But forever never came

 

Just a latent sense of loyalty

To the things I love in vain

And now I'm terrified of loving

 

'Coz I'm terrified of pain

 

And of missing out on human things

By cowering away

So light 'em up

 

Those shadows in my blood

 

Oh a weary heart they say

It shatters it all

 

So light 'em up

 

It's bound to be much worse

 

Oh when you get get get get back to the summer

If you get get get get back to the summer

When you get get back to the summer

If you get get get get back to the summer at all
