"Self-Made" as written by Greg Wells and Otep Shamaya....
[intro]

..no..

FIND THE DEFECT
THE REASON,
THE SOURCE OF ALL THIS MISERY
-- AND EXTRACT IT ... FOREVER.

WHAT HEALS ME - KILLS ME!

[verse]

I'M A NATURAL ASSASSIN
A MASSACRE IN ACTION

I'VE NEVER KNOWN REMORSE
OR FELT ANY COMPASSION

THIS IS MY DRUG OF CHOICE
THE REASON DEMONS REJOICE

MY RAGE REMAINS
A BEAST UNTAMED

... I BET YOU'LL REMEMBER ME NOW.
GLUTTON!

I AM HEARTBREAK & DEPRESSION
REGRET WITHOUT REDEMPTION

A WOUNDED ANIMAL
AFRAID OF MY REFLECTION

I AM AN EPIDEMIC
THIS IS A CRIME OF PASSION

THE WILLING WEAK DESERVE DEFEAT
THE PENANCE WILL BE SAVAGE!

... I BET YOU'LL REMEMBER ME NOW.
... I BET YOU'LL REMEMBER ME NOW.

[bridge]

BI-POLAR
SELF-ABORTION
MIND FUCK
CAN'T ESCAPE
THESE CHAINS
OF SHAME
I'M STUCK!!

SWOLLEN IN THE MUD
BARELY STANDING STILL
HUNGRY FOR THE HUNT
& THE THRILL OF THE KILL!!

See O M E O N ! !

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A SHADOW
CONTENT WITH MY DISEASE
- YOU'LL NEVER SEE IT COMING
'cause YOU NEVER NOTICE ME
... UNLOAD!!

WORDS ARE THE REMEDY
WORDS ARE THE REMEDY

WHAT HEALS ME, KILLS ME.
WHAT HEALS ME, KILLS ME.

HEAL ME, KILL ME
HEAL ME, KILL ME

THE PLAGUE RAGES ON.

[outro]

I've built myself out of ash & agony, I am ready ....
I ... AM ... I

I AM MY
OWN CREATION

I AM
SELF-MADE

I AM MY
OWN CREATION

I AM
SELF-MADE

DESTROYERS!
I AM I!

A BONE HEALS,
A BRUISE FADES,
BUT ART IS FOREVER.

    General CommentTaking all that shit and horrible stuff that was given to you in your life, and making it into your own defense mechanism.

    General CommentI think this song is about being your own creation, being yourself, not hiding behind a false identity. Standing up for yourself for who you really are in this society. not letting people control the way you persue yourself in everyday life. you are who you are. " I Am I" you are unique you are your own creation.
