I'm Not Afraid is the ninth song on the album A Million Degrees by Emigrate.

Background

  • The song had its premiere on 28 October 2018 on the German radio station Rock Antenne.
  • The song features Cardinal Copia from Ghost.
  • In a track-by-track interview with Kerrang!, Richard said the following about the song:[1]

This was made with the help of Cardinal Copia himself… the holy spirit helped me (laughs)! There was a bit of a coincidence – we were looking for a producer for Rammstein and there were three guys on the list. I noticed all three had worked with Ghost. So I called him [leader Tobias Forge] up and he said he’d be in Berlin. He came over and we talked about his experience with producers and he gave me some advice. Then I asked if he would be interested in a collaboration and he told me he was not doing such things. I played him the song anyway, as he couldn’t really say no… I wouldn’t have let him (laughs). But he listened and it was really straightforward from there. He didn’t do it the nice American way, he just looked at me and said, ​‘I’m in!’ That worked out great. He’s a fantastic guy and really fun to work with.

Lyrics

Album version

I'm a stranger, I'm no one
Not in anybody's view
I am jaded, I'm no fun
And I keep on moving through

Haven't heard from God above
No more painful point of view
No salvation where I'm from
Wonder who is fooling who

All, all the hands I have laid
All written along my face

I'm not afraid of anything
I just let it go
And now I take on everything
To get out from the hole

On a street that I renamed
Sunlight made another hole
Could it be that I'm to blame?
When the ground has turned so cold

Can it be I'm not the same?
Can it be I've got a hold?
On what we say is just a game
The one we play till we get old

All, all the hands I have laid
All written along my face

I'm not afraid of anything
I just let it go
And now I take on everything
To get out from the hole

I'm not afraid of anything
I just let it go
And now I take on everything
To get out from the hole

I'm not afraid of anything (Amen)
I'm not afraid of anything (Amen)
I'm not afraid of anything (Amen)
I'm not afraid of anything
I just let it go

I'm not afraid of anything
I just let it go
And now I take on everything
To get out from the hole

I'm not afraid of anything
I just let it go
And now I take on everything
To get out from the hole
