Parody of Bone Crusher's "Neva Scared." A song about overcoming fears and exercising courage.

lyrics

INTRO
Fear aka doubt. Aka excuses. Aka racism. You’se a got-damn lie! You’se a thief! Had me acting shy and shit. Had me hiding out and shit. Had me late and shit. Had me hating people and shit. Had me stuck and shit. That ain’t me! You ain’t me! Courage is my authenticity. Fuck outta here!

CHORUS
So I took a leap of faith and fear came out to play
Playing hide ‘n seek with my spirit but this is what I had to say
Get my head yo! I ain’t neva scared
Get my head yo! I ain’t neva scared
Get my head yo! I ain’t neva scared
I ain’t neva scared
I ain’t neva scared

VERSE
Once upon a time, just yesterday
Two monsters in my head came out to play
One they named fear and other called doubt
And I can never pinpoint their whereabouts

You see they real deceptive like sabotage
Getting me caught up in they camouflage
Disguised as rationality, reason, practicality
Depriving my spirit of purpose and originality

Never take risk
Never make mistakes
Gotta stay perfect
In your bubble where it’s safe

Kept me paralyzed, always hesitating
Nervous that my dreams weren’t meant for me. Invalidating
Drowning in to do lists, next week, and maybe tomorrows
But today is a precious gift that tomorrow only borrows

Time is a trick, someday is a myth
These monsters got us caught up but i know they ain’t legit
They like the boogie man sneaking all under the bed
A vampire to my spirit tryna infiltrate my head.

get my head yo! get my head yo!
get out my head. get out my head.
get out my head. get out my head.

VERSE
Fear got us having nightmares
We on Elm Street
Freddy Krueger killing dreams
While people sleep

Attention!

I stay woke
Get the crust out my eye
Aim high
Fly high
I see it all clearly: fear’s a hoax

Wake up!

Used to be a sleepwalker
Clocking nine to five
Banking on bi-weekly checks just to stay alive
Shadow artist, dream stalker
Overworked and underpaid
Selling my time, unsatisfied, afraid

Courage dont mean that we moving like we fearless
It’s a conscious choice to prioritize our fierceness
Our wierdness or how I persevere this
Life
No one is born just to try and get by
Gonna cross that bridge, we gotta walk that walk
Moving in the service of the visions that we talk
Do what makes you come alive,
Do what makes you shine and thrive
Guided by love
Awaits us on the otherside

OUTRO
When I take the stage: I ain’t neva scared!
When I write the page: I ain’t neva scared!

When I make mistakes: I ain’t neva scared!
When I go on dates: I ain’t neva scared!

When I hustle hard: I ain’t neva scared!
When I quit my job: I ain’t neva scared!

When I ask for help: I ain’t neva scared!
When I do it myself: I ain’t neva scared!

When I cut a rug: I ain’t neva scared!
When I kill a bug: I ain’t neva scared!

When I spit on the mic: I ain’t neva scared!
When I ride my bike: I ain’t neva scared!

When I teach the youth: I ain’t neva scared!
When I speak my truth: I ain’t neva scared!

When I choose to forgive: I ain’t neva scared!
When I choose to live: I ain’t neva scared!
