You say the hill's too steep to climb, chiding You say you'd like to see me try, climbing You pick the place and I'll choose the time And I'll climb the hill in my own way Just wait a while for the right day And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds I look down hear the sounds of the things you said today Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling Merciless the magistrate turns round, frowning And who's the fool who wears the crown No doubt in your own way And every day is the right day And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow You look down hear the sound of the faces in the crowd

History of the song:
"Fearless" is the title of the third track on Meddle by Pink Floyd. The song's slow tempo and mellow acoustic sound bear similarities to some of the other tracks on the first side of the album. David Gilmour and Roger Waters composed the song on guitar using an open tuning in G major. Waters plays the acoustic guitar parts on the studio recording, despite his job as the band's usual bassist. Near the beginning and at the end of the song, a field recording of fans in Liverpool's Kop singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" is superimposed over the music. This Rodgers and Hammerstein song became the anthem of Liverpool F.C. after Gerry & the Pacemakers had a number-one hit with their recording. Roger Waters is in fact a staunch supporter of Arsenal F.C. The song is almost regarded as an underground hit for Pink Floyd, although it was not released as a single in the UK or played live by the band. Its title is derived from a football (soccer) slang term for "awesome", which became a cliché among the band's touring party.
