Effigy Lyrics

Artist: Natalie Merchant
Album: Ophelia

I'm an effigy
A parody of
Who I appear to be
Put your flaming torches under me
I'm an effigy
A parody of
Who I appear to be
Put your flaming torches under me
I'm an effigy
A parody of
Who I appear to be
Put your flaming torches under me
Endless so far in myself follow me
fade to Tibetan singer Yungchen Lhamo

Stunning, stunning, at first i thought it was about contempt and self-loathing, but maybe it is indeed bhuddhist in outlook, it says if you destroy the material needs and material self you can achieve endlessness, and she asks that we follow. Stunning...
