Otep

Otep - Where The River Ends

rate me

<BR>

Come<br>

With me<br>

<br>

I will let you see with my words<br>

I will let you burn & observe<br>

<br>

But where I go<br>

You can only follow<br>

<br>

So close your eyes<br>

Open your mind<br>

<br>

...and see<br>

<br>

Somewhere<br>

Out in the dark<br>

<br>

A car pulls up<br>

& parks<br>

<br>

& the passenger<br>

Shifts nervously in her seat<br>

& butterflies<br>

Flutter in her belly<br>

<br>

& the driver<br>

Shuts off the engine<br>

& moves a little close<br>

<br>

She giggles a little<br>

As he unbuttons her blouse<br>

<br>

She pushes him away<br>

& he whispers,<br>

"aw baby, don't be that way.<br>

I took you out, I treated you right.<br>

Now, don't put up a fight.<br>

Come on.<br>

I only want to put the tip in.<br>

Don't fight, don't fight. come on.<br>

This is all your fault you know.<br>

Just relax, let me do what I gotta do<br>

& I'll let you go.<br>

<br>

Don't you love me ?<br>

Don't you love me ?<br>

<br>

DON'T YOU LOVE ME ?<br>

<br>

Breathe in deep<br>

A sea of desperate dreams<br>

I have no mouth<br>

& I must scream<br>

<br>

Brethe in deep<br>

A sea of desperate dreams<br>

I have no mouth...<br>

<br>

And somewhere<br>

In a normal neighborhood<br>

In a normal house<br>

<br>

A normal family<br>

Is falling part<br>

<br>

And down the hall<br>

The little ones hide<br>

<br>

Frozen as fossils<br>

As their mother cries<br>

<br>

Listening<br>

Now that the others have gone silent<br>

<br>

The walls blister<br>

As sister rises in defiance<br>

<br>

Here<br>

In the depths of the labyrinth<br>

She will make her mark<br>

<br>

She travels the cavern<br>

Searching for the Minotaur<br>

<br>

& she finds him<br>

Asleep in the heat<br>

Of his triumphs<br>

<br>

A sparkle of flame<br>

Flickers in hey eye<br>

<br>

She nudges him softly<br>

And says, "Daddy, wanna give me a try ?"<br>

<br>

And he rumbles a roar,<br>

"You must lick honey from a thorn<br>

If you are to survive this night"<br>

<br>

And she says, "no, I'd rather pick a fight."<br>

<br>

And he reaches out and she's on the attack<br>

And he's face down and she straddles his back<br>

<br>

Ans has the moonlight fades from his eyes<br>

She sighs,<br>

"come on, what's the matter ?"<br>

<br>

Don't you love me ?<br>

Don't you love me ?<br>

<br>

DON'T YOU LOVE ME ?<br>

<br>

Breathe in deep<br>

A sea of desperate dreams<br>

I have no mouth<br>

& I must scream<br>

<br>

Breathe in deep<br>

A sea of desperate dreams<br>

I have no mouth AND I MUST SCREAM !<br>

<br>

Whate we are<br>

You too will become<br>

<br>

Liberated children<br>

Of a bloody-hungry god<br>

<br>

Sedition !<br>

<br>

They used to HANG women like me,<br>

Strange fruit of the poplar tree !<br>

<br>

They used to OWN women like me,<br>

Necessary accessories !<br>

<br>

They use to BURN women like me,<br>

To quell the fires of liberty<br>

<br>

In the blessed fertile orescent,<br>

THEY STILL STONE WOMEN LIKE ME !<br>

<br>

And one day you will say<br>

Just look at her now !<br>

<br>

...and as everything fades to black<br>

...and as the jackals laugh in the aftermath<br>

<br>

I'm not yours anymore<br>

<BR><BR>
