Otep Remember To Forget

Hush now, close your eyes

open your mouth, swallow lies

Hush now, close your eyes

open your mouth, swallow, swallow lies

Moth breath fluttering

He whispered to me

the violence of silence

We have a terrible secret that we

must never repeat

& if i do, he’ll dedicate his life to

ripping me to shreds

Remember to forget.

Poison crown of regret

Sucking life like funeral flies

Shadow of Oedipus

Eat the fever; knife the eyes

Remember

to forget

to relent

to surrender

Remember

to forget

to relent

to surrender

I hope you die like swine surrounded

by starving dogs

I’m stained by your sin like the

blood soaked boards of the cross

Between the Devil & the deep sea,

you’ll find me

dreaming evil endlessly, aroused by

life’s fantasies

What do you do when dreams come

true and it’s all so ordinary?

Stitch the wounds of complacency

and hide your eyes from reality?

I am the shape of a God lifting up

the sky.

Remember

to forget

to relent

to surrender

Remember

to forget

to relent

to surrender

insurrection

INSURRECTION

I kicked you out of bed

stabbed knives into the walls

poured gas over your head

struck a match in the hall

This will remind you

This will remind you

This will remind you the burden

we carry

This will remind you

This will remind you

This will remind you the razors are ready

Room after room I hunt the darkened

world for you

Casket black, dried & cracked, ashes

among the dunes

But I’ve gone blind in time to lose

you to the dark

Now I’m immune to you and your

whorish heart

Hus now close your eyes

Open your mouth, swallow lies

Hush now you’re all mine

Close your eyes, close your eyes

Remember

to forget

to relent

to surrender

Remember

to forget

to relent

to surrender
