Otep

Otep - Oh, So Surreal

rate me

<BR>

I wish I didn't know<br>

What I know<br>

<br>

I wish I could pretend<br>

Like they do<br>

<br>

If I could<br>

I would<br>

<br>

Smile &<br>

Forget<br>

<br>

& there's a child<br>

Out on the battlefield<br>

<br>

A pistol in each hand<br>

He trades a kill for a meal<br>

<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

<br>

& there's a man<br>

Standing on top of a hill<br>

<br>

Screaming freedom for some<br>

But all others must kneel<br>

<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

<br>

Apathy is so hip<br>

Everyone's doing it<br>

<br>

In your sterile life<br>

In your sterile life<br>

<br>

A little girl's lost<br>

On the streets of L.A.<br>

<br>

She complains about the sharks<br>

But plays the part of the prey<br>

<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

<br>

& children<br>

Will go to sleep hungry tonight<br>

<br>

While our dumpsters overflow<br>

With our careless delights<br>

<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

& it's oh, so surreal<br>

<br>

Apathy is so hip<br>

Everyone's doing it<br>

<br>

In your sterile life<br>

In your sterile life<br>

<br>

Apathy is so hip<br>

Everyone's doing it<br>

<br>

In your sterile life<br>

In your sterile life<br>

<br>

(Antiseptic ways)<br>

<br>

I don't care<br>

But I lie<br>

Never feel<br>

Never try<br>

Empty people<br>

Empty steeple<br>

<br>

If all the oppotunists<br>

& leaders of men<br>

Were forced to fight<br>

In the wars they begin<br>

<br>

If we could starve the rich<br>

& hurt the cruel<br>

<br>

If we could take revenge<br>

& leave it all in ruins<br>

<br>

What would you do ?<br>

What would you do ?<br>

<br>

What would you do<br>

If we did it to YOU ?<br>

<br>

Apathy is so hip<br>

<br>

Now, there's silence<br>

Now like the lips of the dead<br>

<br>

Now, there's silence<br>

Turning inside my head<br>

<br>

Smile & forget<br>

Pretend like they do<br>

Smile & forget<br>

Pretend like they do<br>

<br>

Apathy is so<br>

Everybody's doing it<br>

Apathy is so<br>

Everybody's doing it<br>

<br>

(& children<br>

Will go to sleep hungry tonight)<br>

<BR><BR>
