Otep - Menocide
I judged the distance
To where you ran your hand through your hair
You were startled for an instantyou said
"take me home" and I paid the fare.
And you laughed the laugh of the innocent
As the cab cut a path in the street
As the world swept by with it’s violence
I thought of the shelter we’d find in the sheets¡
In the sheets
I never asked you for nothing like changing your name
I believed we had something herebut nothing ever came
Were you thrown by the languageby words that we said
When I told you I loved you
Did it get in the way? get in the way?
You lit a candle
Then you poured me a glass of port wine
I pulled the oven handle
The air felt warmthe scent felt kind
And your kiss could heal like medicine
There ain’t nothing that it can’t overcome
But I could not lean on this evidence
For fear you’d take the cure and run.
You would run...
Cause love won’t stop to
Think about the consequences
Turns a fool to stumbling
Over people’s fences.
And the moon cut a frown over windy town
But you smiled as you pulled down the shade
And we turned a corner onto holy ground
And got lost in the love we madethat we made...
Get in the way...
