Otep – Shattered Pieces lyrics

And this is how the world died [x2]
I can hear you judging me
I'll hear your confession
I found the best piece of me
Kneel down
Shivering in the dark
Place your head between my thighs
Three centimeters tall
And talk to god
Eating it's heart
But you will not feast on me today
This is how the world died
Who will slay this thing
I forgive you
Who will play the butcher and
End my suffering
I forgive you
I fucked the minds of the masses with the fingers of liberty
This is not a threat
This is not
A threat
I'm not perfect
I'm not a beauty queen I'm just me
I'm just me
We are all
Prisoners here
All shapes and sizes
I've screamed for all the women I've never been but hoped I would be
I'm proud of who I am
Chasing the sun
I'm proud of me
She bites her trembling mind
It began as all tragedies do
Forgive me [x2]
With pain and deception
If you'll be the paper I'll be the pen
This is it
I've tasted hell
And it tastes just like you

My final plea
No one is coming to save me
No one is going to change things
The answers will not drop from the sky
I will not one day wake with a different disguise
The only solution
Is revolution
Art is war
Fight [x2]
The odds were always against me
Lose weight
Clearly think
I exist I am broken [x2]
If god is my father
Then I am an orphan
I am broken
I am not a mistake [x2]
My ancestry is a ghost story
I'm a prophecy
My love life is a crime scene
I'm an omen
My self-esteem is a string of unsolved murders
The radio is brainwashing me filling my head with these
Self conspiracies
I am an emotional nightmare
I can't hide the pain inside
Builder of my own mythology
Just tell me
You're listening
