Otep – Oh, So Surreal lyrics

I wish I didn't know
What I know

I wish I could pretend
Like they do

If I could
I would

Smile &
Forget

& there's a child
Out on the battlefield

A pistol in each hand
He trades a kill for a meal

& it's oh, so surreal
& it's oh, so surreal

& there's a man
Standing on top of a hill

Screaming freedom for some
But all others must kneel

& it's oh, so surreal
& it's oh, so surreal

Apathy is so hip
Everyone's doing it

In your sterile life
In your sterile life

A little girl's lost
On the streets of L.A.

She complains about the sharks
But plays the part of the prey

& it's oh, so surreal
& it's oh, so surreal

& children
Will go to sleep hungry tonight

While our dumpsters overflow
With our careless delights

& it's oh, so surreal
& it's oh, so surreal

Apathy is so hip
Everyone's doing it

In your sterile life
In your sterile life

Apathy is so hip
Everyone's doing it

In your sterile life
In your sterile life

(Antiseptic ways)

I don't care
But I lie
Never feel
Never try
Empty people
Empty steeple

If all the oppotunists
& leaders of men
Were forced to fight
In the wars they begin

If we could starve the rich
& hurt the cruel

If we could take revenge
& leave it all in ruins

What would you do ?
What would you do ?

What would you do
If we did it to YOU ?

Apathy is so hip

Now, there's silence
Now like the lips of the dead

Now, there's silence
Turning inside my head

Smile & forget
Pretend like they do
Smile & forget
Pretend like they do

Apathy is so
Everybody's doing it
Apathy is so
Everybody's doing it

(& children
Will go to sleep hungry tonight)
