​On the Shore

This song is by Otep and appears on the album Generation Doom (2016).

I'm getting out and leaving you behind
I'm so tired of forging a life
On the run, a loaded gun
There's a name on the bullet I'm afraid its mine

(I had to let you go, let you go, let you go)
(I had to let you go, let you go, let you go)


I'm on the first boat leaving this war
I never got what we were fighting for
The water's warm I can see dry land
No longer living under your command

(I had to let you go, let you go, let you go)
(I had to let you go, let you go, let you go)


I'm gonna sleep well
Sleep tonight on the shore
Beneath an empty sky (Beneath a gentle sky)

I never got what we were fighting for
I'm all alone now washed ashore
The waves break over me
In the blood colored mud so tenderly

I'm on the first boat leaving this war
I never got what we were fighting for
The water's warm I can see dry land
No longer living under your command

I'm gonna sleep well
Sleep tonight on the shore
Beneath a gentle sky, sleep well
Sleep tonight on the shore
Beneath an empty sky (Beneath a gentle sky)

(I had to let you go, let you go, let you go)
(I had to let you go, let you go, let you go)


Selective amnesia's the people's anesthesia
Selective amnesia's the people's anesthesia
Selective amnesia's the people's anesthesia
Selective amnesia's the people's anesthesia

Sleep well, sleep tonight on the shore
Beneath a gentle sky
Sleep well, sleep tonight on the shore
Beneath an empty sky (Beneath a gentle sky)

Sleep well, sleep tonight on the shore
Safe from your crimes
Sleep well, sleep tonight on the shore
Safe from your crimes

(Selective amnesia's the people's anesthesia)

How can you choose
To let the blind see better than you
To let the blind see better than you
