                [Verse 1]
 
Em D Cadd9                   Em D Cadd9
       We've been testing you          and you failed
Em D Cadd9                                                Em D Cadd9
         To see how long that you could sit with the truth, but you bailed
            Em                           Cadd9
And I don't think you even recognize the loss of control
            Em                    Cadd9
And I don't think you even see it in yourself
          Em                           Cadd9
See every one of us is counting dice that we didn't roll
          Em                        Cadd9
And the loser is the last to ask for help
 
[Chorus]
 
G                           D
    Be afraid, be very afraid
D             Cadd9
But do it anyway
          G
Do it anyway
 
[Verse 2]
 
Em D Cadd9                     Em G Cadd9
      The stage belongs to you, you feel like a star
         Em   D   Cadd9                              Em   D   Cadd9
You can bark and snap like a dog at the man who just tuned your guitar
             Em                           Cadd9
And I don't think you even recognize the kid in the wings
             Em                         Cadd9
And I dont think you even see her in yourself
             Em                              Cadd9
She looks to you for what to do with all her delicate dreams
               Em                      Cadd9
But you're too terrified to be of any help
 
[Chorus]
 
G                           D
    Be afraid, be very afraid
D             Cadd9
But do it anyway
          G
Do it anyway
 
G                           D
    Be afraid, be very afraid
D             Cadd9
But do it anyway
          G
Do it anyway
 
[Bridge]
         Em                       Cadd9           G
We don't take requests, we won't shut up and sing
            Em                  Cadd9                 D
You tell the truth enough, you find it rhymes with everything
 
[Verse 3]
 
Em D Cadd9                          Em D Cadd9
            We've been testing you..         and you failed
             Em   D   Cadd9                                      Em  D  Cadd9
To see how long that you could hold it in before you screamed, but you only exhaled
            Em                            Cadd9
And I don't think you even recognize the sound of your voice
            Em                                 Cadd9
When it's blasting through the speakers in the sky
            Em                                    Cadd9
And if your words add up to nothing, then you're making a choice
          Em                           Cadd9
To sing a cover when we need a battle cry
 
[Chorus]
 
G                           D
    Be afraid, be very afraid
D             Cadd9
But do it anyway
          G
Do it anyway
 
G                           D
    Be afraid, be very afraid
D             Cadd9
But do it anyway
          G
Do it anyway
 
G                           D
    Be afraid, be very afraid
D             Cadd9
But do it anyway
          G
Do it anyway
 
G                           D
    Be afraid, be very afraid
D             Cadd9
But do it anyway
          G
Do it anyway
 
[Outro]
 
Em  D  Cadd9 x4
