Otep Rise, Rebel, Resist Lyrics

Perfect little spouses
In perfect little houses
It's family fun time
Let's commit a hate crime

If I can't be loved
Then I'll be hated

I'm disconnected
I'm uninspired
I'm burning in water
I'm drowning in fire

I'm trapped inside my mind
Beneath these piles of stinking life
You use this abuse to keep me conquered
You're so absurdly common

Vacant faces
Brainless strangers

Sputtering, stuttering insect language
I'm the creature you created
Everyday I grow jaded
Calloused and exaspered

If I'll never be loved
Then I'll be hated

I'm the one of the freaks, the ******s, the geeks, the savages
Rogues, rebels, dissident devils, artists, martyrs, infidels

Do we sit still
Under attack
Or do we start pushing back?

Never back up
Never back down

And fight
Rise, rebel, resist
Rise, rebel, make a fist, resist
Rise, rebel, resist
Rise, rebel, make a fist, resist

I'm human pollution
I covet retribution
I'm just a big mistake
A defect you can subjugate

Your ridicule is just typical antics
Spineless, mindless, tragic, fanatic

Puritan, bigot, lunatic, hypocrite

To save my soul from disaster
Self-destruction could be the answer

If I'll never be loved
Then I'll be hated

I'm the one of the freaks, the ******s, the geeks, the savages
Rogues, rebels, dissident devils, artists, martyrs, infidels

Do we sit still
Under attack
Or do we start pushing back?

Never back up
Never back down

And fight
Rise, rebel, resist
Rise, rebel, make a fist, resist
Rise, rebel, resist
Rise, rebel, make a fist, resist

Masochistic
So sadistic
All they see is another statistic

Maybe I'm a misfit, maybe I'm different
It will never be an average existence

Masochistic
So sadistic
All they see is another statistic

If I can't be loved
Then I'll be hated

It's family fun time
Let's commit a hate crime

War, war
Rise, rebel, resist
Rise, rebel, make a fist, resist
Rise, rebel, resist
Rise, rebel, make a fist, resist

I'm the one of the freaks, the ******s, the geeks, the savages
Rogues, rebels, dissident devils, artists, martyrs, infidels

Do we sit still
Under attack
Or do we start pushing back?

Never back up
Never back down
And fight

War, war
