Down Lyrics

Otep – Down Lyrics

from album: Generation Doom (2016)
[Verse 1]
All my life
I was told that I was evil
All my life
I've been living illegal
I'm the one
That they love to hate
Cause I'm half
Mark twain
And I'm half
Jesse James
Words are my weapons
To blow them away
More disciples with rifles
Then the NRA

They're playing checkers
I'm playing chess

[Verse 2]
A defiant mental giant
I'm never the less
When I trample examples
Of artificial success
They try to bring me down
But I'm coming up
And it's...

[Pre-Chorus](x2)
Never enough

[Chorus 1]
Round & round & round
Straight to the bottom
Yeah it takes me down
Round & round & round
Dooooooown!
Round & round & round
Stuck in my head
I can't escape that sound
Round & round & round
Down motherfucker
Yeah, it takes me...
DOWN

[Verse 3]
If the people are sheep
Don't blame the shepherd
If knowledge is cheap
I should be an investor
You're the common in the knowledge
That I already know
Just a common in the sentence
That I already wrote
It's like history's written in invisible ink
So they can own the throne
And everything'll repeat
In the kingdom of lies
The best that money can buy
I was born to destroy
But I live to defy

[Pre-Chorus](x2)

[Chorus 2]
Round & round & round
Straight to the bottom
Yeah it takes me down
Round & round & round
Dooooooown!
Round & round & round
Stuck in my head
I can't escape that sound
Round & round & round
Down motherfucker
Yeah, it takes me...
DOWN (x8)

[Bridge]
I'm the devil you know
And I'm the devil you don't
Cause you can't command
What you can't control
No
You can't command
What you can't control
No
You can't command
What you can't control

[Outro]
Round & round & round
Straight to the bottom
Yeah it takes me down
Round & round & round
Dooooown
Round & round & round
Stuck in my head
I can't escape that sound
Round & round & round
Dooooown
Round & round & round
I was born to destroy
But I live to defy
Round & round & round
Down motherfucker
Yeah, it takes me...
