Demo: 

Voices

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

Fake-as people all around me. I see right through them. Somehow I think they need me to know the truth

Lyrics: 

The ramblings of an incoherent
former prom queen
Still alive
But dead inside
Left without her teenage bonehead
army of followers
Spiraling down
The corporate slide

This is what I hear around me.
Voices in the clear.
Once again they’ve somehow found me.
Voices in my ear.

And she pretends
She’s peachy-keen
Won’t tell her friends
The pain she’s in

Nervous laughter of a heart-broken
Young divorced dad
Still alive
But dead inside
Left without his tiny toddler
Whisp of a little girl
Spiraling down
And bleary-eyed

This is what I hear around me.
Voices in the clear.
Once again they’ve somehow found me.
Voices in my ear.

And he pretends
he’s peachy-keen
Won’t tell his friends
The pain he’s in

They look like They’ve got it so together
On the outside
But I see through their blatant blether
I know they’ve lied.

Excited chatter of newlywed
Sweet bride and groom
Still alive
But dead inside
Left without a choice or way out
Of their loveless union
Spiraling down
But they’ve complied

This is what I hear around me.
Voices in the clear.
Once again they’ve somehow found me.
Voices in my ear.

And they pretend
They’re peachy-keen
Won’t tell their friends
The pain they’re in

Yes! It never stops happening, does it? Seeing people living a prescribed life.

Mmmm. Like this lyric. Hits a chord with me. Noisy ones are often the saddest. Pictures you paint are great. Each one brings something new. Dead inside line is a great phrase and spot on. It's like the reality of reality. Good work.
