Sem Medo

O primeiro single para o disco "It´s Not Me, It´s You", de Lily Allen, produzido por Greg Kurstin (The Bird end The Bee) e que vai sair no início de 2009, tem já este (abaixo) fantástico tema de apresentação. "The fear", além de ser um óptimo tema pop, tem uma mensagem que faz-nos reflectir sobre a nossa sociedade de consumo e de uma certa forma de, hoje, ser-se uma estrela. Não é preciso pensarmos muito para encontrarmos pessoas que cabem no perfil do tema.

Letra de "The Fear "

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 f***loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘Cuz everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars outclassing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so f***ing fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
and its not my fault it’s how I’m programmed to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah we're on to a winner


Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
Now everything's cool as long as I’m getting thinner
