Speak to me about the ease of it all.
Talk to me about the failure of it all.
Repeated time after time you fool!
But still I say we can try again.

I know what you know
You know?
No
That’s too many voices all at once
Telling me too many things

Which one do I listen to and which is my own?
First world problems right?
Because I live in the first world.
Too many different voices.
My friends
My family
My lover
My government!
Which is my voice?
Who knows, when I speak no one listens anyway
 

I listen to myself
but a lot of it is hate and id rather that go away
Anyway off to work again to face the
imaginary
pain.

Mental health is a problem?
Who said that?
I can’t hear you,
Even if I could there are too many voices.
