Possession

sing to me my muses
lost in the hot cyclops anarchy
possession
invention
blood, blood
spirits, spirits
sprits, spirits
come, come
where will these visions lead?
how far dare i go?
where will this song take me?
into the deep unknown
yeah
spirits, spirits
come, come

hope the prophets and the gods came prepared for this
so we dine on divine of the mind impaired
preaching werewolf prayers on a nightly flight
it's taken all we ate in the pale moonlight
feel the urge of the power surge connect us all
bringing kingdoms under siege with the words that i control
gotta be nice you got your blind success
only love can set me free from this patriotic quest
test me once and i secretly die alone
while a toy in the face in the faces of the hawk
walk in the wilderness of the mind
so i decide to die and leave a friend of mine behind

possession, invention
invite discovery
surrender to pleasures
lost in ecstasy
survive
i lie you are my enemy
you die for lies, slave to misery

bring in the battleground
laying wasted the competition
of connected intellects and the say the soul systems
i decree mutiny
it's revolution us against the patriarchy
disassemble the soul, full of knowledge untold
while i spin the webs of wisdom prophecies unfold
into tech mode to decipher the code
a babylon drives all to have a memory load
mental states decide for all races
urgency of rage in these grimmy little places
prepare for warfare
nothing but the knowledge of america's nightmare
yeah

possession, invention
invite discovery
surrender to pleasures
lost in ecstasy
survive
i lie you are my enemy
you die for lies, slave to misery

sometimes i sit and ask myself what have i become?
what have i become?
what... have i become?
what... have i become?
what... have i become?
what have i become?
something's taking over me
something's taking over me
something's taking over me
something's taking over me

you paint your face with the blood of weed
self sacrifice everyone you meet
scream at demons in my face
theres voices of the dead left here in my head
i survive, i'm alive
i render fever to watch you burn
kill your leaders to help you learn
i survive, i'm alive

    General Commentfirst of all this is a cool song, but there's one problem. THE LYRICS ARE WRONG!!!! And the song is called Possession, not Posession. If you want the right lyrics here they are FROM THE SITE WWW.OTEP.COM :

    [spirits come come]

    sing to me my muses
    lost in hot cyclops anarchy
    possession, invention ... blood, blood
    spirits, spirits .... come, cum ...

    where will these visions lead?
    how far dare i go?
    where will this song take me?
    into the deep UNKNOWN!

    SPIRITS SPIRITS COME COME!

    I.

    all the prophets & the gods came prepared for theirs
    so we dined on the vine of the mind in pairs

    preaching werewolf prayers on our nightly flight
    gestating all we ate in the pale moonlight

    feel the urge of the power surge -- ignite the soul
    bringing kingdoms under siege with the words that i control

    got an arsenal, ganja blunts & such
    only love can set me free from this Patriarchal clutch

    speaking testaments in our secret dialogue
    while the drones begin to feast on the feces of the hog

    take a walk in the wilderness of your mind
    before your soul decides to die & leaves infinity behind

    [chorus]

    POSSESSION
    INVENTION
    INVITE DISCOVERY

    SURRENDER
    TO PLEASURE
    LOST IN ECSTASY!

    SURVIVE
    ALIVE
    YOU ARE MY ENEMY

    YOU DIED
    FOR LIES
    SLAVES TO MISERY

    II.

    down on the battleground laying waste to competition
    eye'm collecting intellects & exhaling solar systems

    eye decree mutiny ....
    its REVOLUTION US against the Patriarchy

    the assembler of souls full of knowledge untold
    while eye'm spinning webs of wisdom, prophecies unfold

    into attack mode to decipher the code
    of Babylon's terror spawn - tyranny reloads

    into the mental stasis - apathy erases
    the urgency of rage & its frightening little places

    prepare for warfare
    the afterbirth of knowledge is Americas nightmare

    [chorus]

    [bridge]

    sometimes eye sit and ask myself ...
    WHAT HAVE EYE BECOME!!!???

    something's taking over me ...

    POSSESSION
    FREE ME NOW
    ASHURA
    ISHTAR
    KALI
    AVENGE ME ... AVENGE ME.

    paint your face with the blood of the weak
    self sacrifice everyone u meet
    screaming demons in my veins
    voices of the dead nurturing my pain


    eye survived
    eye'm alive

    eye spread the fever
    to watch u burn
    killed your leaders
    to help u learn

    eye survived
    eye'm alive

    [lie.]

    General Commenti hear slightly different lyrics in some spots in this song...for example, i thought it was "survived, alive, you are my enemy, you die with lies, slave to misery" and "self sacrifice everyone you meet, screaming demons in my veins." But i don't know. Don't really care either. This is a great song.

    General CommentIt's clear that the lyrics shown are lyrics of a different version of "Possesion". I only know of 3 versions("Jihad" version, "Sevas Tra" version & Demo version).

    General CommentI dunno, I like otep's music and all, woman I think is a good vocalist. but I'll be damned if I'd give her credit as the "poet" she seems to have appointed herself as. she's more of a rapper as the style is more for the flow with the music as it is creatively written. She's as poetic as ICP's lyrics. just my opinion though, every one to their own I guess.

    General CommentMan this song rocks! It's just cool that it seems that there is a ritual built into this song. As if each and every time she is singing this song she calls the spirits all around her.

    Oh and I'm too braindead today to decipher this song LOL. Battle Ready took all my energy. I'll come back...

    General CommentWHAT ARE ALL OF YOU TALKING ABOUT, SHE IS OBVIOUSLY A SECRET LESBIAN. AND SHE WASN'T REALLY IN LOVE WITH HER LOVER, BECAUSE SHE IS A SECRET LESBIAN. SHE MURDER HER LOVER, DUE TO HER BEING A SECRET LESBIAN. BECAUSE SHE WAS A SECRET LESBIAN, SHE WAS IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP.

    "mental states decide for all races"
    OBVIOUSLY SHE IS A SECRET LESBIAN. DUE TO HER BEING A SECRET LESBIAN, SHE IS BECOMING A WOLF. LIKE AN ANAMAGEUS ON HP, BECAUSE SHE IS A SECRET LESBIAN. AND ALSO SHE THREW HER HUSBAND OFF OF A MINIVAN, REPRESENTED EVERYTIME SHE SCREAMS, AND DUE TO HER BEING A SECRET LESBIAN.
