The Fear Lyrics

Play "The Fear"
on Amazon Music

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 fuck loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them.

And I’ll take my clothes off and it will...

    It's about a girl who dreams of being rich and beautiful and famous but for now it's just a dream (I want to be rich and I want lots of money). She wants it at ALL costs and is willing to sell her body and soul for it (I don't care about clever I don't care about funny I want loads of clothes and f__kloads of diamonds).

    Later, she has achieved what she wants "I look in The Sun and I look in The Mirror" (two British newspapers) but has lost touch with herself and reality (I don't know what's right and what's real any more, I don't know what to feel any more).

    The song is basically about materialism, consumerism and fame "life's less about mothers and more about passing each other". The Fear is basically the desire to be richer, skinnier, hotter than everyone else and to have more than everyone else at all costs.

    It's about the stereotypical woman in Western American 21st century pop culture and their life goals about being rich, being famous, driving fast cars, having lots of money, being thin, getting tons of plastic surgery, consumption of gifts/product, and the fear of not having enough money to get material items and live a comfortable lifestyle.
