suicide trees lyrics – otep

i spent my
whole life
in love with despair
kept my lungs full
with the breath of thier
mute atmosphere
i became
what i hate
and thus
shall i remain
to give birth to a
mighty *ssasin
armed with a weapon of words
to defy the lies
to never compromise
no
today
my name
is pain
i stood
beyond the world
whispering secret syllables in the
eyeless dark
dancing wildly
round and round on the rotting ground
surrounded by the dead dusts of h*ll
this is how i delete myself
and this is how i corrupt
everyone else
obey [x2]
betray [x2]
you are not unique
you do not need to think
take it [x3]
i will [x3]
you succ*mb
so nicely
like an insect staring back
like a dying dove
my love [x2]

so here we are again
the sheets are staind and bloodied
the animals scratch at my skin
here we are again
my face is scr*ped and bloodied
i’ve nothing left to give

i wasn’t there
i’m not involved
i’m innocent
it’s not my fault
i wasn’t there, i’m not involved, i’m innocent, it’s not my fault [x2]
here in the suicide trees [x2]

no, bl**dy, bl**dy, bl**dy
murder
among the exciment of my sins
it’s not happening [x7]

so here we are again
in secret ceremonies
changing shape, amen
here we are again
pretending not to notice
the illness sneaking in

i wasn’t there
i’m not involved
i’m innocent
it’s not my fault
i wasn’t there, i’m not involved, i’m innocent, it’s not my fault [x2]
here in the suicide trees [x2]

toil and labor, hate your neighbor, faith in favor, obey [x2]
obey [x2]
here i do as i please, obey, here in the suicide trees, obey [x2]
hate your neighbor [x2]
scratch at my skin
it’s not happening [until fade out]
