Inside insanity,the world is cold and gray
and the voices of the dead
echo endless in your head
and only you can hear what they say.

They whisper night and day
things both profound and profane
telling you to do things you dont want to do

and they swear that it is in God's name

so you sit in your room
listening all alone and slowly getting stoned
and you cannot tell the lies from the truth

and you know that if you tell
they will lock you in a cell
but you cannot tell the lies from the truth.

and the voices of the dead
echo endless in your head
and you dont know what is lies
nor what is truth.
Bob Mitchum
