​Crooked Spoons

This song is by Otep and appears on the album The Ascension (2007).

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 they 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
Ten gauge needles and a prayer
Smearing sin everywhere

What else could you need
You've taken everything
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
Ten gauge needles and a prayer
Smearing sin everywhere

What else could you need
You've taken everything
What else could you need
You've taken everything
(Surface dweller
Shallow swimmer)

Take me where the baptized drown

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

My lips are kissed
With tiny stitches

What else could you need
You've taken everything
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, hallow
Incarcerated Soul

I sleep too deep for
You to wake me up!
