"Life Less Frightening" is the third song from the Chicago melodic hardcore/punk rock band Rise Against's 2004 album Siren Song of the Counter Culture. It is the third track on the album and runs approximately 3 minutes and 44 seconds.

The lyrics of the song depict a realization of the horrors of the world and a longing for a "life less frightening" ("...I'm soaking with the sins of knowing what's gone wrong...") and infers that lack of action will only cause the problems to worsen ("Time again I have found myself stuttering/Foundations pulled out from under me.").
