Tech N9ne - Fear Lyrics

[Intro - (Mackenzie O'Guin) and Tech N9ne]
(Fear) This was the moment I feared [x4]

[Verse 1:]
Reoccurring dream, I was falling
Droppin' from something tall
And Jesus name that I'm calling
This is pretty deep how I'mma decorate the city street
Little bitty pieces there's really gonna be some chalky drawings
In this dream I had, when I land
I can taste the blood, I can smell the concrete
And I can feel my bones crush on a calm street
Dark and desolate, my heart I never get
Another beat I'm gonna be other head to split, my hell is credited
Where the red is in, I'm down and dead admit in light I'm dreadin' this
If we're created of God than predestination
Should not be looked at as odd, when we're blessed to wake in-
Side of a dream, like I've been here before
And we sum it up with some french expression like we didn't hear the lord
So I'm hopin' and prayin'
That I won't be opened and sprayin'
In real life and it's just a dream, and it's not a thing that can sway my view
But my fear is that I end up layin' and ready for decayin'
What I thought was a dream now it's Déjà vu

[Hook - (Mackenzie O'Guin) & Tech N9ne:]
If I fall will the angels catch me?
Or in it all is it my destiny?
Is there a sound when the ground absorbs me?
Or a dream tellin' me my story

[Verse 2:]
I called up my mother, but who answered my brother
He said "she real sick but I'm gonna put her on just tell her you love her"
My heart it just fluttered when mama picked up she would utter
"Who is this?" I said "Donnie", but she thought I was another
Didn't even know me, and she's not an oldie
It's the lupus or epilepsy
Maybe the psychosis only
"This your son I just called to say happy birthday"
Not really knowin' me hit me in the worst way
Then she said "Oh yeah, little Donnie, how you doin' in school?"
I said "I'm 42, mommy!"
I give my arm, leg, leg, arm, head if that means my momma get better
Toughest thing to swallow is when someone who raised you, they gonna forget ya
I'm feelin' sadness, I'm feelin' anger
Steady praying for a higher power to come down and change it
Rearrange her cause my fear is that the sickness in her mind
In due time it'll make her son a stranger

[Hook 2:]
A stranger to the one who raised us
Nameless to the one who named us
Back to the place where it all began
I'm seeing heaven but I fear it's the end

[Verse :]
Taught to have faith in God
Breakin' bread then we bakin' K.O.D
Makin' plenty then spread it abroad
Wash it down with a glass of Shiraz
I try to walk the path of the righteous one
But this life is one, that's full of strife, let's run
To the mountain top
What I'm 'bout to say if suckas starts to thinking this holy name
I denounce then stop
Man, I'm just sayin'
I do a whole lot of prayin'
And I wonder if it's listenin' to Aaron's nightly whisperin'
'Bout mom in the tithe she's weakly payin'
I know it's a blessing, that I raised kids cause I got skill
And thank God that gangbang thing didn't bring me hot steel
Now my mom's worse and a lot ill
My fear is that this God I'm prayin' to for my mother is not real

[Hook 3:]
Extinguish me from this world of fire
False teachings taught by liars
Prayers that go in an empty asylum
No salvation from this messiah

    I watch my mother's kidneys fail, her becoming paralyzed from the waist down, become blind, and forget who I was... and the toughest thing about that was knowing that you had the exact match kidney she needed but only being born with one... She died August 24th 2018 at 36 years old

  14. Zachary Lash

    I am only family by Tech's art, I too felt his mother's passing. I was in jail about to fall asleep and suddenly I had the overwhelming sensation and thought that Tech had died and all that it would mean. I wrote it down on my calender, got out and 1st thing I saw on Facebook was his mother's passing. The exact date I had that feeling. The human connection is real. Tech IS divine and his heritage as well. It goes up!!

  29. abbie4949

    I never would have associated fear with a loved one's death. But when I was at my lowest, the therapist asked me what was the thing I fear most in life? Without thinking, I blurted out what came to mind first: and also the one I fear I'd had for my whole life : MY MOTHER DYING.. It was such a revelation...The worst part? My mom had died a year or so before that...I feal tech exactly on this song.

  30. Joe Pizzichemi

    So sad I know how you feel tech I lost my mom to and I’ve suffered with epilepsy my whole life

  31. Dabba

    RIP Mama Tech

    @Tech N9ne I know quite a few people that know you and I grew up representing the Strange Label. Originally a fan of little pills when I hit the 5th grade Nd started poppin thizz and x. I truly believe I have potential to make something happen with my life. Yu have spit around 8-9 sometimes 10 syllables per second. I can almost compare.. i am at my current record of 7.5 syllables per second. Email me if you ever see this. I’m 17. 18 in Oct. Love-ElevN

  40. Insert name here

    When this song came out I was in the end part of losing my Dad, and I've been struggling with it because he thought I was a younger me.. then I lost my mom last month.. it's been one of the hardest tests of my faith.

  41. Andrew Valentin

    This is really one of Tech N9ne’s greatest most personal songs I’ve ever heard him make. I’m surprised it doesn’t have more views.

  42. Chad Levell

    My Grandma died of the Alzheimer's this song helps bring closure thank you tech 💯

  43. David Houser

    I'm only 28 in August 29, oldest of 4, and I've been in and out of jail spending upwards of 8 months to years, have nothing to show for myself and unable to work with the things I love because of charges (children and animals)... And my mother has early form of Alzheimer's... And my biggest fear is if it takes her before I can get my shit together, I won't be strong enough or able to provide for my siblings ..... Soo Everytime I listen to this I cry like a baby because it hits me harder then when I was facing 15 years day for day

    Elizabeth George

    Keep your head up I'm dealing with inner demons and mom very I'll andy baby brother locked up and a lot of of rage I have inside. I may not be locked up but in reality I'm locked up spiritiualy.

    This song hit me hard. I actually lost my grandma on January 31st, 2017. She died from either Gang green or a heart attack. She was taken home and put onto a bed rest and had a cpap machine on her. She was the best grandmother I could ever ask for. She died at the age of 69. I wish I got to spend more time with her. Me and my sister are 4 years apart, I was 10 and my sister was 6 when my grandma passed. I know how it feels tech., but minor things can't bring us down, even if it's someone you care about. R.I.P. Maude Sue Yates-Kalifah 10/26/1955 - 6/6/2015, you will be missed and loved through this song. Prayers to you Tech N9ne. 😭😭😭

    I was just literally crying while listening this. One of the thoughest rap I've ever heard. Yesterday started listening you on acident. 'Sut mig' frome it's strat made me like "whaaat, there is some awesome rap except Eminem?" Now Tech N9ne pretend to become my №1. Especially colab with SOAD... I belive i heard them in your track.
    wow 2.4kk.. It's madly underrated!
    Брат, сочувствую от души. Счастья тебе, мужик. Мама больше всего хотела бы видеть тебя счастливым, в этом нет сомнений.

  93. Justin Milley

    Mckenzies vocals are chilling.

  94. John Drake

    God does not promise a life without pain. He commands us to endure in faith and perseverence. To walk by faith not by sight. God promises a life after death if you repent or at least thank him and give all your worries to him. He knows life is painful but pain builds character.

  95. lotusOXOX

    Rest in paradise 👼👼❣️❣️
