    Love & Fear - song by Karl Werne

    I tell you of a time
    It was a beautiful time
    People dancing everywhere

    Was never any doubt
    Of what it's all about
    Love and music filled the air

    And the sound came out like boom, boom, boom
    Cause their hearts were beating louder than the
    Troubles that were left behind

    And any thoughts to love one another
    As your sister and your brother
    Were the only ones that came to mind

    Now let's talk about the Fear
    And how we brought it here
    It's something we should understand

    It seems that in the name of protection
    We have poisoned our connection
    To the welfare of our fellow man

    Where it was thoughtfully in fashion
    To be guided by compassion
    No one found themselves in need

    But when doubt made us scared about
    The very things we cared about
    We opened up the door to greed

    When we take our pride and livelihood and sell it overseas
    And we compromise our freedom by a matter of degrees
    Till the dreams we had believed in are now driven to their knees
    What's the game?

    You can do the math on what is saved and what is spent
    When our sacred holiday becomes a marketing event
    Seems we cannot pay attention like we cannot pay the rent
    But who's to blame?

    Can we talk about a child
    Born free and wild
    With everything to lose or gain

    If the future he'll inherit
    Comes from what our actions merit
    Then maybe we should keep it sane

    Dr Frankenstein's elated
    At the monster we've created
    Cause it paints him as a boy scout

    But if Love isn't driving
    The system that's surviving
    Then it might be time to throw it out
