Otep : Hydra

Teksty

1. RISING

Behind these eyes
Beneath this crown of fire
Hides a mind
Etched in violence
Stained & Rotten
Breast fed from devils
And now
I eat my own kind
Tonight
The sermons I write
Will save my life
And your

Your defeat will come in a warm, thick scream
And I will show you the fate of the world in a fist full of blood

Rising like a Hydra
Rising like a Hydra

Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss!!
Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss!!
Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss!!
Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss!!
Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss!!
Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss!!
Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss!!
Rising like a Hydra.. from the abyss...


2. BLOWTORCH NIGHTLIGHT

I've slept in the depths of the Devil's bed
I've risen from the prison in my head
To find you
To find you
Waiting to be fed
To find you
To find you
The one who made me sick!!

I've slept in the depths of the Devil's bed!
I've risen from the prison in my head!
To find you!
To find you!
Waiting to be fed!
To find you!
To find you!
The one who made me sick!!

Eyes
White and blind as a spider's egg
Alabaster bones

A house
Burned in a clearing
Forest for miles along the slope

The way you shape
This world of hate
You make
Me fucking crazy!!!

You make me fucking crazy!!!

Blinding cold
And casket black
A river flows somewhere below
I stood in hooded silhouette
And murmured sermons to my soul

The way you blame me
The way you shame me
You make me fucking crazy!!!

You make me fucking crazy!!!

A corpse in the doorway
Dried to leather
The floorboards buckle and groan
Moonlight drifts in and over me
As I descend the cellar stairs alone

The bunker is walled with concrete blocks
Empty rooms, iron cots
Whispered curses and broken prayers
Children roasting like pigs over open fires

Blowtorch nightlight!!!

Do you wanna see? Do you wanna see?
What I've done?
What I've done?
What I've become?

I'm just like you, unthinking brute!
I'm the bruise that never heals!
I'm the swing that breaks
And frees the screams.
You make me fucking crazy!!!

The way you complain
About the pain
You make me fucking crazy!

You make me fucking crazy!!!

Blowtorch nightlight!!!

These 3 words

Fuck
You
Forever!!!


I've slept in the depths of the Devil's bed!
To find you!
To find you!
You fucking piece of shit!!!

The way you complain
About the pain
You make me fucking crazy!!!

The way you rape my mental state
You make me fucking crazy!!!

Blowtorch nightlight!!!
Blowtorch nightlight!!!
Blowtorch nightlight!!!
Blowtorch nightlight!!!


3. SEDUCE AND DESTROY

And when the medicine ran out
And when we didn't speak for days
I could hide inside your smile
Fade
And curl up around the fang
Drained
Wasted away

I'll be your toy
To seduce and destroy
I'll be your toy
To seduce and destroy

I'll kill
What's killing me!
I'll do what I have to
To kill
What's killing me!

No one is clean

Chemical bondage
Pale as parchment
I'll kill
What's killing me!

Abuse me
You can use me
Better living through chemistry!

And when you fall asleep
And when you drop the key
I'll slide it inside your mouth
And say,
"Do you wanna play?"
Bang
Blow you away

You'll by my toy
To seduce and destroy
You'll be my toy
To seduce and destroy

I'll kill
What's killing me!

I'll do what I have to
To kill
What's killing me!

No one is clean

Chemical bondage
Pale as parchment
I'll kill
What's killing me!

Abuse me
You can use me
Better living through chemistry!!!

On your knees
Coughing up
Prayers made of
Money and Dust

Serrated blades of
Your bated breath
Have made a monster
In the house of death

Punctured, deflated
The snakes in your veins
Evacuated and slithered away
Are you sure you still want to play
This evil little game?

I'll kill
What's killing me!
I'll kill
What's killing me!

A devil made of crystal
Glistens like the sun
Fingers to the head
Pointed like a gun

A devil made of crystal
Glistens like the sun
Fingers to the head
Pointed like a gun

A devil made of crystal
Glistens like the sun
Fingers to the head
Pointed like a gun

A devil made of crystal
A devil made of crystal

A devil made of crystal
Glistens like the sun
Fingers to the head
Pointed like a gun
Pointed like a gun
Pointed like a gun
Pointed like a gun

Are you sure you still want to play
This evil little game?


4. CRUSH

Shhhh, Its ok
I'm right here
I promise
I won't leave you
Everything will be ok
I wont
Leave you
Ever

Don't be afraid!!
Sweet, little stray!!

Don't be afraid

I see you
In your Sunday best
I see you
Feathering your nest

And oh, how I liked you
You were my very own

Oh, how I liked you!
So, I followed you home

I see you
Day to day
I see you
And I love the way
Your lips suck that cigarette
I see you
Haven't seen me yet

And oh, how I liked you
Your were my very own
Oh, how I like you
Even as I broke your bones

Tell
Me
Please
Does it hurt?

Tell
Me
Please
Does it hurt?

You were my very own
Oh, how I liked you!
You were my very own
Mine alone

I made it so special for you
A bed of roses for you to bloom

I see you
Opening your mouth
I see you
Absent of doubt
I see you
Will never forget
The night your life was mine to collect

And oh, how I liked you
You were my very own
Oh, how I liked you
As I covered you with stones

Tell
Me
Please
Does it hurt?

Tell
Me
Please
Does it hurt?

If I can't have you no one can
You'll stay with me among the damned
To keep you warm, I'll hold you tight
The fragrance of a graveyard night
Will remind us of unending love
And I'll forgive you chosen one

No, no. Don't say those things

Don't you say a fucking word!
Don't you know it fucking hurts?
Don't you say a fucking word!
Don't you know it fucking hurts?

Crush!!
Crush!!

You're ignoring me now

Oh, how I loved you!
You were my very own!
Oh, how I loved you!
You were mine all alone!
Oh, how I loved you!
You were mine to control!
Oh, how I loved you!
Eyes & mouth packed with mud


5. HEMATOPIA

I don't recognize my life
Who is this soul so weak and paralyzed
Cold claws raking up and down my spine
I'm never alone, but I'm lonely all the time
This is where it ends, within the empty dark
I'll set myself aflame, resurrected
By the spark

I may be broken
But I won't fall to pieces
Lonesome and corrosive
The weakness of your secrets
I won't die like I've done many times before
I'm gonna run
From the wounds
Of war

When the moon casts shadows long across my wall
I'll pretend they are my friends and I've known
Them all along
I'll sit and pretend I'm not waiting on your call
When the phone finally rings
My courage will dissolve
And I will run to you
I will run right back to you


6. NECROMANTIC

The evil that's between us
The evil that's between us
The evil that's between us
Greedy
Needy
The evil that's between us
Greedy
Needy
Self-deceiving
So demeaning
The evil that's between us
The evil that's between us
Greedy
Needy
The evil that's between us
Greedy
Needy
Self-defeating
So demeaning
The evil that's between us


7. QUARANTINE

Alone
In a world
Of terrible softness
Vague shadows
Lazy faces
And empty bodies
Caste in the murk
Impose their will
From the haze
Strangers disguised as friends
Enemies as lovers
The
Over-enormous
Over-dramatized
Over-acted
Poorly directed
Sitcom of life
Available in
A.D.D. on HDTV
In 3-D for the O.C.D.
On every
Fucking channel
Quiet tempest
Drowning the days away
In fevered fervor
Angst
Anxiety
Love
Laughter
Lined with razors
This ladder of life
The stink
The sting
The rapid
Rabid idiocy of it all
And I
Can answer
These eternal riddles
With this solution
On my tongue
As it runs over the
Ivory skin of her
Soft limbs of the moon
Prophets of doom
Pulling me slowly
In the gaping maw
Theirs is an antique world
Full of dusty pearls trying
To quiet the bright midnight
But I am rising
Like a Hydra

Be everyone to everyone
All the time

Hydra

Be everyone to everyone
All the time

Hydra

Be everything to everyone
All the time

Hydra


8. VOYEUR

He has a webcam
And he likes to video himself

He has a webcam
And likes to video himself

With animals

A stray dog
The neighbor's cat
Binding them
Torturing them
Murdering them

He has a webcam
So I helped him understand
How
They
Felt

He woke to the sound of distant thunder
The rain had stopped and all was silent
Except for the dripping in the trees
His heavy breath, his heartbeat

His eyes focused and found me
I spoke like a god
Gently I said, "I have a webcam
"And I like to video myself
"Binding
"Torturing
"Murdering"

He began to scream with the stitches held tight
He rattled the cage and pulled at the lock
With all his might

So I electrocuted the bars and
He fell asleep from the charge and
I prepared to make him
A star

He has a webcam
So I helped him understand

When he woke
I asked him to sing me a song
He obliged but was often off key
So I removed his lower jaw

Now his tongue juts out like a slimy slug
But he' so eager to please
Tapping the melody on the bars of this large cage
With un-clipped nails he plays

And once I've had my fun
Bringing dark justice to this
Pathetic goblin
I will
Burn
Probe
Break
And Drain

And he will be scorched in a bath of pain

I will drop him into the misty bayou
Where he will be a feast for
Serpents and
Insects and
Beasts and
All the putrid life of the murky bog

And as he sinks, and as he screams
Into the lens of his webcam
I will play a farewell
An ode to the demons
Waiting for him
In Hell

He has a webcam
So I helped him
Understand
How
They
Felt


9. APEX PREDATOR

She's pounding on the door
She's crawling on the floor
Oh, she's so coy

She's scratching on the walls
She's clawing at the gauze
She's so coy

She's gnawing on the ropes
She's pulling at the hooks
She's so coy

Oh, you know she wants it
The way that she taunts me
Damn, she's so coy

It's the Apex Predator
With a sermon for the listener
Seduce & Destroy

Your head upon a stick
Would look really sick
But they would call me crazy
For the way I spoke to it

I'd ask about its day
Did it miss me while I was away?

Tight lipped from the stitches
It wouldn't have much to say

The rest would be kept in a
Tight little dress

Propped up in the corner
A perfect little pet

Locked in a box
So I can keep stock
A trophy to show me
That all is not lost

The writing on the wall
A psalm in napalm
Abandon all hope
But try to stay calm

Bleach to clean the curses
I exist, I'm not the first
Tell my mother I love her
I didn't suffer

Photos and fantasies
Virtuoso of crimes scenes
The Apex Predator

But why does she look so much like me?

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
I gotta satisfy the thirst

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Death is such a flirt

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
You get what you deserve

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Survival of the worst

It's the Apex Predator

I'm the boss

She's got a broken arm
I've got a broken heart
Boy, she's so coy

She made a little fire
With a fork & electrical wire
Damn, she's so coy

Blowtorch nightlight
Switchblade knife fights
Fuck! She's so coy

Thunder in the distance
Gun shots or missiles?
My smile is artificial
The lock clicks, my eyes fix

The writing on the wall
A psalm in napalm
Abandon all hope
But try to stay calm

Bleach to clean the curses
I exist, I'm not the first
Tell my mother I love her
I didn't suffer

No regrets, no apologies
A self-fulfilling prophecy
The Apex Predator

All I could smell was her hair

Burning

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
I gotta satisfy the thirst

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Death is such a flirt

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
You get what you deserve

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Survival of the worst!

But why does she look so much like me?

Like worms on a hook
That were plucked from the
Heart of the bodies of gods
For the wretched & lost

Like worms on a hook
That were plucked from the
Heart of the bodies of gods
That men had forgot

Like worms on a hook
That were plucked from the
Heart of the bodies of gods
That were rotting to dust

The Apex Predator

All I could smell was her hair

Burning

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
I gotta satisfy the thirst

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Death is such a flirt

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
You get what you deserve

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Survival of the worst

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
I gotta satisfy the thirst

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Death is such a flirt

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
You get what you deserve

Nobody move, nobody gets hurt
But where's the fun in that
Survival of the worst!

All I could smell was her hair
All I could smell was her hair

Burning


10. FERAL GAME

What is common?
What is normal?
What is wrong with me?

In the end, how will I be judged?
A skull to hold the worms?
A body to cradle dust?

If it means becoming like these
Wrinkled people with
Shriveled lives
I'll forfeit this shadow
Game of compromise

Tonight, I might
Swim to far

And the shore will fade
And I'll be gone

One day they will say
Just look at her now

One day they will say
We thought she'd drown

In a tidal crush
Of muck that sucked
Her to the ground

They will kneel, shiver
And beg
What pushed you over the edge?

Cuts and bruises
Ruined brain fluid
Cigarette burns
The monsters
Taking turns!

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

We remain animals!

Feral or tame?
We remain animals!
Feral or tame?
We remain animals!
Feral or tame?
We remain animals!

We remain animals!

We remain animals!

One day they will pray
Save us from this hell

One day they will pray
Save the weak and frail

One day they will pray
Save us from ourselves

And I'll say it's too late
You've summoned the devil
Within me
You should be
Running

You amuse me
Sluts and losers!
Sub-human
Lice and tumors!

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

We remain animals!

Feral or tame?
We remain animals!
Feral or tame?
We remain animals!
Feral or tame?
We remain animals!

We remain animals!

We remain animals!

Feral or tame?

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

She
Was asking for it
He
Was laughing at me
She
Was asking for it
He
Was screaming don't hurt me!

One day they will pay!
And I will rise from ruin!
A beast of iron and plague!

Cuts & bruises
Cigarette burns
The monsters
Taking turns!

One day they will pay!

Feed it!
Fuck it!
Breed it!
Eat it!

Their perfume
Still haunts this room
Sensual phantoms
Fingers and lips
Cradle the evidence

Mine
Mine
Mine


11. LIVESTOCK

It began
With a pen
In my hand
Stabbed
In the center of chaos
To write out the light
That lives within me
That sought to break
The darkness
Eating me alive

For hours I would sit
Dreaming, drawing
Writing, believing

My arm in a sling
One eye swollen shut

Whispering
There would be a way out
There must be
A way out

Focused
On the paper
On the floor
That held me
Heavy as a stone
In the corner
Of that tiny room
Floating on a river
Of Imagination

Isolated
On my knees
Seeded in the soil
With girls
Younger than I
Holding their backs
Arching puffed bellies
Stuffed full with their
Infected children

Celestial incest
Terrestrial insects

We slept in boxes
That doubled as coffins
Because
Some were smart enough
To die

But not I
Stubborn little cyclops

I
Was destined
To fight


12. HAG

Hag!

She wants me to be just like her!

Toxic!
Rotten!
Necrotic!
Despotic!
Deceiver!

Hag!
Hag!

She's falling apart
She's suffering
She's lost in the dark
Choking on jealousy!

She's falling apart
She's suffering
She's lost in the dark
Mental leprosy!

Sovereign Vermin!

Rats in the walls
Covered in fleas
Choking on the
Ashes of jealousy!

Rats in the walls
Covered in fleas
Choking on the
Ashes of jealousy!

Rats in the walls
Covered in fleas
Choking on the
Ashes of jealousy!

She wants me to be just like her!

Greedy!
Needy!
Completely empty and scorn!

Hag!
Hag!

She's falling apart
She's suffocating
She's lost in the dark
Choking on jealousy!

She's falling apart
She's suffocating
She's lost in the dark
Mental leprosy!

Sovereign Vermin!

Rats in the walls
Covered in fleas
Choking on the
Ashes of jealousy!

Rats in the walls
Covered in fleas
Choking on the
Ashes of jealousy!

Rats in the walls
Covered in fleas
Choking on the
Ashes of jealousy!

Rotten slag!
Hag!

Lies and tears and wasted years
A rat that poisons
Itself with fear

You jealous, selfish
Sack of filth!

Pestilential hag!

I hope you die!
Choking on your lies!

The mirror is cracked
We're nothing alike
Burn to ash!

Hag!
Haaaaaaaaag!


13. THEOPHAGY

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

I was rapped by orderlies
Gnawed on by rats
Given a lobotomy
Half-drowned in ice baths

They tried to break me,
Erase me, disgrace me

Through mental sodomy

But
I will fight
I will rise
I will fight
I will rise

Like a Hydra
From the
Ash

Like a Hydra
From the
Ash

Another sermon
Of choking smoke
And billowing rage

It seems this is all it takes
To force the angels to wake
To bring their ivory faces
Buried deep within their wings

To come, come fly with me
Come, come fly with me

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

So many motives
So many totems

I don't do this for revenge you see
It's more of a calling

The priest who had a taste for it's flock
Tender sheep
Boys and girls
I made a lamp out of him
And now
He is the light of the world

The nun who shot smack from
The stolen tithing cash
I burned her to ash but her
Teeth made a fine pearly necklace
The senator who buried
His mistress on the back nine
His skull is a goblet for my favorite wine

You see I need these beautiful moments
When I am unyoking my opponents
Limb from limb
In the knotted irons of combat

It's as close to true intimacy
As I can ever hope to reach

Naked monsters
In the dark
Ripped to shreds and torn apart

The sheets will be our evidence
Of the blasphemies we invent

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Breed it
Eat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Eat it
Repeat it

Repeat it
Repeat it
Repeat it
Repeat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Eat it
Repeat it

Feed it
Fuck it
Eat it
Repeat it
