Otep – Buried Alive lyrics

I speak in verses
Prophecies & curses
I hate my life

No miracle is coming
It's just a hole
Nothing's wrong with you
Must maintain control
Everyone's askin questions
No place is safe
I'll forfeit ressurection to escape the pain
... I hate my life

I hate my life

I speak in verses
Prophecies & curses

The storm of thorns is growing
There's no end in sight
Chaos claws my jaw,
Incites a metal riot.
I'm in the mouth of madness
With this tongue of poetry
I ate the spine of atlas
Now the world is crushing me
I hate my life...

I hate my life

Buried alive behind enemy lines
Surrogate child for the sins of all mankind.
Buried alive behind enemy lines
Buried alive
Buried alive
For the sins of all mankind!
