Otep: Fists Fall (Video, Lyrics)

There are certain songs that I like to listen to when I find that life and the people in it push me too far.

They aren’t soft, sweet, and pretty either.

Here is one. Actually, anything by Otep really helps me express and deal with the anger that builds up from being pushed around.

Nothing better than a little death growl now and then.

Otep: Fists Fall

No more tears
Stand up to your fears
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
No more tears
I was born to be broken
(Broken)
Calling, gagging, spitting,
Falling, bleeding, begging vermin
I exist without purpose
(Purpose)
Teach me, tell me, push me, hurt me, hit me harder
Fists fall like rain
On my knees, but I’m not afraid
Cowards die everyday
I’ll face the attack
Pressed to the wall but fighting back
I’ll face the attack
Pressed to the wall but fighting back
I’ll face the attack
Pressed to the wall but fighting back
And now that you see me
I’m terrified
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
No more tears
I am on the brink of destruction
Pushing, pulling, nagging, feeling sweet seduction
I’ve had enough
Of the lies and the alibis on your lips
Fists fall like rain
On your knees, you look so afraid
Cowards die everyday
I’ll face the attack
Pressed to the wall, but fighting back
I’ll face the attack
Pressed to the wall, but fighting back
I’ll face the attack
Pressed to the wall, but fighting back
And now that you see me
I’m terrified
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
Standing over me, my body
His fists swollen and bloody
My marks and raw scars
I’m not gonna take it anymore
I’m sick of this shit
Not gonna flinch
If I gotta go down, it’ll be swinging
You will see you can’t break me
I’m not gonna take it anymore
Keep your knuckles bloody
No more tears
No more fears
Strike the anchors
Use your anger
Defy the master
Break the rules
Keep your pride locked up inside
It belongs to you
They think they’re stronger, bigger, better
But they’re just jealous cowards
Fuck what they say
Fuck what they think
About us
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
Keep your voices raised
Keep your knuckles bloody
Cowards
And now that you see me
Now that you see me
Now that you see me
Now that you see me
You are terrified
You are terrified
You are terrified
