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...
