Otep — Nein lyrics

My pain my pride these scars are mine
My pain my pride these scars are mine
My pain... My pride...
These scars... Are mine...

I will tell you a story
That's never been told
I will tell you a secret
Five lifetimes old
My life has been a prison
A labyrinth built beneath
A mountain of tragedy
I'm a stain on the cloth
I'm just an after-thought
But I would die for this

But through veins of decay
I'll remain to betray
To live like caesar
To die like jesus
To build my own religion
No gods, no loss
To celebrate pain
Forsaken and ashamed
To watch them all crawl beneath us
On the bed of nails and regret
Dying of fevers, betrayal, and sweat
I cry!

My organs are rotting my enemies are plotting
I am made of pages
Paragraphs, and inspirations
Paper girl, burn the world
I pass the flame to you!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Fuck her! Slay them!

My pain my pride these scars are mine
My pain my pride these scars are mine
My pain...
My misery has been formulated into an equation of nine
My sanity wrote a suicide note but
One of us is illiterate, and the other is blind
My first act of treason was picking up a pen
My first act of love was finding myself again
The hardest thing to do was standing up to you
Now I'm off my knees
Now you're begging me please
I'm the wound and the weapon
The fracture and the fist

My organs are rotting my enemies are plotting
I am made of pages, paragraphs and inspirations
Paper girl burn the world
I pass the flame to you!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Hurt her! Hate him!
Murder! Mayhem! Fuck her! Slay them!

That stabbing in your heart
That black hole in your soul
Slowly ripping you apart
That's me
That's me!

So let it be written
So let it be done
Abomination!
The brighter they shine
The darker...
We...
Become!
Vae victus!
Abomination
Vae victus!
Abomination
Vae victus!
Abomination
