Otep: My Confession (Video, Lyrics)

Just to be clear, I’m not one of those soft rock girls. Though I do go from Simrit to Otep rather quickly.

Maybe this is a strange comparison, and I’m not one who truly thinks it’s “fair” to compare artists, so I’ll say reminds me of instead. Otep reminds me of Jim Morrison, for sure.

… my confession

Because i’m diluted
&
Perfectly flawed

I shall
Live by passion
&
Not by law

And i’m
Insecure …
I need aggression

To
Feed the spiders
Of perception

And i’m
Supposed to be strong
& have
All the answers

A
Cannibal
In the
New church of cancer

But i’m
Nothing special
I’m not unique

I have
Many secrets
& i
Eat the weak

And i’m
At an end

I’m at an end …..

And there’s …
NO WAY OUT!!

(chorus)
I need to find my sanctuary
….. someplace safe
Gotta get this outta me
….. this is my escape

II
And i
Think about it
All the time

I’m
Volatile
&
Afraid to cry

But i’m
Still not comfortable
In my skin

And the
Anesthetics slowly
Wearing thin

& i
Need to talk to
Someone new

I need a different
Latitude

& i’m
In this void

All alone!
Feeling needy

… hungry to grow

But i’m
Suffocating
— can’t come down

And …. no ….
THERE’S NO WAY OUT!!!

(chorus)
I need to find my sanctuary
…. someplace safe
Gotta get this outta me!
…. THIS IS MY ESCAPE!!!

— all i see is sadness
All i see is sadness ….
What’s left?

— this will teach them
This will teach them

……you’ve got to……
Push
Push
PUSH….
YOUR WAY OUT!!!

FOLLOW ME!
FOLLOW ME!
THIS IS YOUR WAY OUT!!

……..you are not alone

– this is where i hide my power
– this is where i become free
– this is where i take control
– and slowly choke your fantasies

– i want to know my day is coming
– see my enemies be punished
– shed my skin again
– this will be my best revenge!!

SHED MY SKIN AGAIN
THIS WILL BE MY BEST REVENGE!
