OTEP lyrics : "andrenochrome dreams"

I had this dream where I woke up to a grand commotion

And um, I jumped from the blankets


And whipped the door from its lock


And rushed blindly into the blackness of the hallway




But there, on all sides lying next to each other


Were rows and rows of executioners




Some were shirtless, robe less and throbbing with anticipation


Sweat delicately sneaking through their body hair

All were hooded


Some like seventeenth century guillotine henchmen




Others had crudely made hoods like scarecrows


Or sudden ripped ski masks with slobber from their clenching jaws


And some had burlap masks sown together

So they looked like they were made of human skin





Each one held a weapon, large mallets, crudely fashioned axes

And large clubs, pipes, but I wasn't compelled to retreat, no





I was forced to move between them

Past their swinging weapons


The clubs, the bats, the slicing tools, the shovels


The large and small axes, big boards with nails




Staples and razorblades embedded in them


Taking the beating, falling down, getting up

Again and again and again and again


Driven to make it out at any cost




And next I stumbled into a, this strange marshy world


Where I was, I was oddly drowning


In squirrels and other large starving rodents




Then from above out on the treetops


Several dolls fell from the branches

Where they were hanging


With nooses made of human hair




They all, uh, they started biting and sucking

And trying to feed from me, trying to enter my belly

And some pushed large needles into my veins and


And as I looked back some had nails

Through their hands, torsos and throats




I was froze, dead eyes carbonized

As I kicked them away I could see all around me


Of piles and piles of dead sea life, large fish

Smelly crustaceans covered all in dead shrouds




And their soulless empty bodies whispered

A secret language, I couldn't decipher

But somehow understood and their cries were


Feed me, feed me



They wanted me to devour

Those around them, chew them up into a paste


And smear them inside their mouths



And as I, I turned around


I could see the shape of a woman, perfect, perfectly erotic

Squatting over a pile of these dead things

And as I ran to her and said, "What the $#[email protected] are you doing?"




And she had no face and then she turned to glass

And suddenly cracked

And then exploded into a 1000 pieces at my feet




And just as I took a quick breath

This world was shoved and decimated

But an intruding tidal wave of microorganisms

Neutrinos, exploding atoms and binding molecules



I was suddenly in the moon again

Frightened, aching and alone

And that's what I remember most

The ache, I can't escape
