"The Next Voice You Hear" as written by and Phil Dillon Billy Henderson....
Gather your deeds and your possessions,
Whatever certainty you've known,
Forget your heroes,
You don't really need those last few lessons.

Stand in the open;
The next voice you hear will be your own.

Well alright, they knew how they could hurt you,
And you let them cut you to the bone.
But God forbid,
You allow them to rid you of your virtue!

Forget their laughter;
The next voice you hear will be your own.

The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear will be your own.

Throw down your truth and check your weapons.
Don't look to see if you're alone,
Just stand your ground,
And don't turn around -- whatever happens.
Don't ask directions;
The next voice you hear will be your own.

The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear...
The next voice you hear will be your own.

    General CommentThis is such a good song, cant believe there are no comments.

    I think jackson is trying to say when people wrong you forget about them and move on. He is trying to say you dont need anything or anyone in your life who hurts you.
    "Forget your heroes,
    You don't really need those last few lessons."

    He goes on to say that you should choose your own path in life and not care about what other people may think.
    "Don't look to see if you're alone.
    Just stand your ground,
    And don't turn around, whatever happens.
    Don't ask directions,"
