battle ready lyrics – otep


simple souls overload as i explode data banks
’cause the earth & sp*ce gave birth to this paleface

supreme — linguistic — mental machine
your brain cells swell – the intellects extreme

fire fills my veins as i proclaim my resistance
to the mind-swapping parasites that feed off my existence

as i — skin the burn to relearn the royal plan
somewhere out beyond the edges in the depths of spirit land

it’s authentic, apocalyptic destroyer
damaging challengers — resurrection, disorder

a monument of crisis – i strike this – your dead
line my nest with your soul — cleansed in bloodshed

battle ready!
poets gonna take control
battle ready
souls violate parole
battle ready
violently invade your home
— breaking the bones
of those who oppose

commanding the mic — striking up a verb-fest
m*ss destruction is my function – time to put it to the test

in combat — attacking since way back
in the days i drew praise for the way that i slain facts

formulating flows in revolutionary science
it’s the catastrophic prophet from the anarchist alliance

freaking techniques — this creature of speech
ewe feels the fury of devastation ’cause ewe ewe tasted defeat

i’m alone on my throne in this universe of fear
royalty divides my soul — in this role i’m revered

as the pinnacle — lyrical master — queen of disaster
i ruin brain fluid — the unknown is what i’m after


shaking up the world — just like the 2nd coming of christ
— when i write — thrice divine with this goddess sight

words will flow — wounds will grow
ewe knows — bones will be exposed from the force that i unload

it’s the soul eater!! — mic bleeder with the voice of chaos
i got the nectar of the gods flowing from my mental pod

gather the flock — alarm your block
tell them the shepherds have come & got the keys to unlock

a holy war — through your veins it courses
more lyrical artillery than the armed forces

supernatural — styles be volatile
it’s the mind manipulator — the war child



shadow soldiers!

we came to defy – living life as a lie
we embryonic satellites need our freedom to fly

to watch die! — agonizing cries are heard in stereo
i’m visualizing battlefield scenarios

in the line of fire — watching empires fall
into attack position — eliminate all!!!

my species!!!


my species!
no surrender!
