The Radio Dept. have released their new single “You Fear The Wrong Thing Baby.”. “You Fear The Wrong Thing Baby” is another piece of The Radio Dept.’s dreampop perfection. “You Fear The Wrong Thing Baby” could have prophetic lyrics or it could be mostly focused on a relationship.  Crazy times that we live in and interpretation is all on your own.

“You Fear the Wrong Thing Baby” lyrics: 

In the end time 

To end all end times 

Still can’t keep everyone down 

Some hijackers 

Will prove the shackles 

Are wasted on the young 

So courageous 

It’s highly contagious 

Who could leave them unsung 

If they’re too vatic for your taste 

Or just too radical 

I don’t mean maybe 

You fear the wrong thing baby 

You may be purging 

But always re-emerging 

These weeds will soon stain the burned ground 

Without trying 

They keep multiplying 

How I long for that sound 

If they’re too vatic for your taste 

Or just too dramatic 

No I don’t mean maybe 

You fear the wrong thing baby 

You fear the wrong thing baby 

How come 

You’re so hung up on looking strong 

Nowadays 

Yeah you’re so far gone 

You need to redefine that song
