Not a peep.
Just these voices in my head.
Why won't they leave me alone?
I just want to go to bed!
Driving me crazy!
...And perhaps even mad.
And the only time I get glad,
Is when these voices aren't putting me down,
Making me sad,
Can't see like I lost my sight and
These voices are trying to decieve me.
I hope they don't get the best of me.
At first I thought it was my conscientious.
Thought I was feeling guilty for all the wrong I've done.
Until I heard another voice as well,
So many i can't keep count anymore.
But okay, I get it, you probably think I'm crazy.
In the middle of a cold, dark, lonely alley
with no one around me and suddenly a scream,
SHUT UP AND GET AWAY FROM ME!
But no, you don't get it.
You don't understand.
Numerous voices telling me how worthless I am.
I have no memories.
All the pain from the past dwells in me.
But it's not my fault,
It's these voices in my head.
All this started when I tried to go to bed.
They told me all this would be better if i was dead.
They promised me no one would care.
So just maybe I should send this bullet through my head.
