head lyrics – otep

“head”

in that final look
does the deer forgive the wolf ?

you’ve stolen my fascination
you’ve amothered my holy addiction

and now i’m soaked in you
like fat white worms or sad haikus

i woke up
& the worldwas on the fire

i woke up
& the swine had conspired

to erase all the faith
that i have in the human race

i woke up
& the world was on fire

it’s all in your head
it’s all in your head
they said i need to flee

are they shepherds ?
or are they sheep ?
are we the butchers ?
or are we meat ?

in this nest of lies
living a life under siege
we sink in the stink
& i need my disease

it’s all in your head
they said i need to flee
this neverending ordinary monarchy

beneath the toxic water
where my secrets come to meet
in catacombs of shadow
& wet skies of mystery

i found a soggy savior
a painted lady made of eyes
she sings to me, my deceit
“your life is a lie”

i woke up
& the world was on fire

i woke up
& the swine had conspired

to erase all the faith
that i have in the human race

i woke up
& the world
was
on
fire

it’s all in your head
it’s all in your head
they said i need to flee

are they shepherds ?
or are they sheep ?
are we the butchers ?
or are we meat ?

in this nest of lies
living a life under siege
we sink in the stink
& i need my disease

it’s all in your head
they said i need to flee
this neverending ordinary monarchy

if we stand too still,
they’re gonna eat us alive !

watch your tongue,
teach them young…

medicate the mutiny.
better living through chemistry
self destruction’s patriotic.
money fixes everything.

wach your tongue,
teach them young…

we’re taught
to love & hate
to fight & obey…

i’ve lost my mind,
but i’ve found my way

(in this nest of lies
every wall has eyes)

it’s all in your head
it’s all in your head
they said i need to flee

are they shepherds ?
or are they sheep ?
are we the butchers ?
or are we meat ?

in this nest of lies
living a life under siege
we sink in the stink
& i need my disease

it’s all in your head
they said i need to flee
this neverending ordinary monarchy
