The Story Of Fear

The Story Of Fear

Kirk Franklin

Alright, Kirk
It's on you bro

I can't sing but I am gonna work hard for you to like me
Didn't dream 'cause if I failed then I might be
What they said I was
Could I ever say I did it?
Tell ye now that I am second to admit it
Insecure, I can't understand the application
If I applied myself, I guess there would be no situation

But who teaches who when every day's in a substitute?
I try to plant love, but it never took root
My soul's got weeds and the roots are too deep
The roots don't sail 'cause the roots are too deep
Wait A-D-D see my roots too deep
A kid too afraid to close his eyes and sleep
Can't you hear me stutter every time I speak?

Fear said hello when she left me weak
Loved me and left me with abandonment issues
Pain's a secret but it illuminates in you
Then it creates a menu, puts sin on your plate
You don't know until later how much of it you ate
Now I'm watchin' my weight
Will this album be my best one
But if it's not ya'll on to the next one

So hello fear it's about time we speak
But it may take awhile 'cause our roots run deep

Eh man, we gotta get that one more time
We had a technical difficulty in here
