A: This song compares adulthood’s insecurity to childhood’s innocence (and perhaps obliviousness). Tyler mentions that children may have fears, but having grown up, he knows which fears he prefers-not the ones of whether others will accept him but the ones that can be solved by his mother’s simple singing.
