"I Hear Voices" as written by and Sergio Pizzorno....
I hear voices, they tell me to stop
Why should I listen,
They've never felt the drop
They hide in corners behind the pretty girls
In their
Gold in their gold in their gold
One minute to a, one minute to a, one minute to midnight
My soul you can have it cause it don't mean shit
I'd sell it to the devil for
Another hit
And midnight is coming and I wish that you were here

I hear
Voices, echo in my brain
They don't like it cause I'm not dressed the same
They
Hunt for rabbits just like Yosemite Sam
Say your prayers, say your prayers, say your
Prayers
One minute to a, one minute to a, one minute to midnight

My soul you
Can have it cause it don't mean shit
I'll sell it to the devil for another hit
And
Midnight is coming and I wish that you were here
My soul you can have it cause it don't
Mean shit
I'll sell it to the devil for another hit
And midnight is coming and I
Wish that you were here

There's no need to fall, there's no need at all
Out of control on my own trying to find my way back
How did end up here And into darkness I walk as the world goes on by
Out of control on my own trying to find
My way back
How did end up here
And into darkness I walk as the world goes on by
I hear voices they tell me to stop
I hear voices they tell me to stop
I
Hear voices they tell me to stop
I hear voices they tell me to stop

    General CommentI'm no expert here, by any means, but I believe one of the operative words is 'hit'. In their gold, in their gold, in their gold(en brown)???

    This song is about something the writer's mind is telling him to stop doing, and the fact that what he's doing is more precious to him than his soul (which he's gonna lose anyway if he carries on with it - bloody fool), tells me that he's addicted to something. Yosemite Sam 'shoots' rabbits. Midnight is coming - morning seems a long way away - wishing he had something to see him through 'till the morning maybe??

    The last verse says it all really. Yeah, he's right, there IS no need to fall - you just stay away from it altogether - but he's already fallen into that dark place, wears raggedy clothes and cares nothing for himself - his one and only interest is heroin. His mind tells him not to do it but his body won't listen.

    I hope he manages to climb out of that shitty place, like I did....

    :)

    General CommentJust luv this band. I hate being the first to comment because I'm not good at deciphering lyrics, but this is what I hear (the operative word is "I"): His conscience tells him he shouldn't be doing something. That something is the young girls with their glitter and gold. He is willing to go against what he knows is right for another hit (ie. girl). He silences his conscience. He wishes the one he loves and will soon cheat on is there, but she's not so any other girl will do. He views himself as a hunter; the girls are his prey. He wants to change (ie. "out of control...trying to find my way back"). The voices tell him to stop, but he walks into the darkness yet again.

    Song MeaningFor me this song is all about addiction and regret. There is a lot of imagery taken from Dr Faustus by Christopher marlowe. The concept in that play is Faustus selling his soul to the devil for 24 years of hedonism. Throughout the play he hears voices of conscience but never listens or repents. Then, at the end of the 24 years the devil comes for him at midnight ("midnight is coming') and he is taken to hell ('into the darkness I walk as the world goes on by'). I think in this context it's all about how addiction blinds us to ourselves and the people around us who care for us and perhaps how we need to go to hell before we realise that we were wrong.

    My InterpretationBasically it my understanding he is wrestling with his conscience (mostly bad side) by looking at pretty girls and gold being glittering promise of things that could come.

    In the second verse he talks about not being dressed the same meaning he not following the crowd and his conscience telling him he should to "fit in" and other people do the same thing over and over again with dressing the same "like yosemite sam" always goes after bugs bunny but fails.

    I think the chorus is basically him just saying he cares about stuff like that because his thoughts and conscience are telling him to do anything for another hit song.
    meaning the world can have his soul and dignity so long as he gets it.

    And at the end he realises what he done and can't believe it and changes his ways and stops listening to the voices

    My InterpretationThis song is about trying to overcome addiction. He's between stopping and continuing to feed his addiction.

    Song Meaning"It was inspired by being in a club in Paris and hearing Daft Punk. I had this riff that reminded my of my raving days. It's about being in a flash club full of rich men, looking at the clock and missing home a bit. A simple sentiment amid the madness." - Q Magazine, September 2011
