Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Fear is something that I despise


For it means destruction of innocent lives
For it means tears in thousands of mothers' eyes
When their sons go out to fight to give their lives

Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

Fear
It's nothing but a heartbreaker
Fear
Friend only to the undertaker
Fear is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of Fear blows my mind
Handed down from generation to generation
Induction destruction
Who wants to die

Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

Fear has shattered many young men's dreams
Made them disabled bitter and meanLife is too precious to be fighting Fears
each day
Fear can't give life it can only take it away

Fear
It's nothing but a heartbreaker
Fear
Friend only to the undertaker
Peace love and understanding
There must be some place for these things today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord there's gotta be a better way
That's better than
Fear

Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
Fear
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind killer.
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past
I will turn my inner eye to see it's path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain."

Taken from Frank Herbert's "Dune."  



18 Nov 2002 @ 02:21 by fleer : Actually it´s a remake
of Barret Strong, Norman Whitfield/Edwin Star´s "War" made popular by Bruce Springsteen.

Call it a Barret Strong, Norman Whitfield/Edwin Star, FlemmingLeer collaboration.... :)

But somehow I found it appropiate to replace War with Fear. I only see Fear as the reason for BushWar sentiments. A nation being caught up in the total failure of war against terrorism. The war in Afghanistan was to crush Al Quada. But they are alive and probably on the move. (If you can trust the media these days.)

But your quote is much more precise and a lot shorter... thx.  



18 Nov 2002 @ 02:26 by ashanti : Hey, yours is pretty good, too! :-)
It's the same sentiment. I am so glad you put this up, because "Fear" is the weapon used by those who would enslave the planet, you are spot on! - keep everyone in Fear, terror - just so long as people do not laugh, are not happy - "Keep 'em in Fear = Keep 'em enslaved". It's bullshit. The time is running out for those who will enslave - and they know it. Both litanies against Fear, their primary weapon, are pretty neat! :-) Thanks for posting this.

Thanks for the war/fear synonym  


21 Nov 2002 @ 03:38 by fleer : Well, thanks.
I just had to do it. From time to time ideas pop into my mind and if I find it wortwhile I follow it. And this was something really obvious as well.
