Crooked Spoons - Otep

Take me down...
Where the baptized drown!
So they say

Surface dweller
Shallow swimmer
Let's lick
My wounds

So they say I killed a man
So they say I took his head
So they say he was a scourge
And all the world are his children
The best thing he ever did
In this life was let me live
Digging swiftly out of Hell
Madness helps me save myself
Crooked spoons on every wall
Genocide lines the hall
To gauge needles and a prayer
Smearing sin everywhere

(chorus)
What else could you need?
You've taken everything.

Surface dweller
Shallow swimmer
Let's lick
My wounds

We feed until we're engorged
Let them sleep I need some more
Nooses made of human hair
Bodies falling from thin air
We speak and preach forbidden truth
This is it we're through with you
I'm choosing to lose my mind
Rape the blade and call it wine
Crooked spoons on every wall
Genocide lines the hall
To gauge needles and a prayer
Smearing sin everywhere

(chorus)
What else could you need?
You've taken everything.

Surface dweller
Shallow swimmer

I sleep too deep
For you to wake me
I sleep to deep
For you to wake me
I sleep to deep
For you
You'll never wake me

My lips are kissed
With tiny stitches!

(chorus)
What else could you need?
You've taken everything.

The venom
That slips
From your lips
The tiny lies
Shining in your eyes
Pain in my veins
Shallow
Hollow
Incarcerated soul
I sleep to deep
For you to wake me
Up!
