"Voices" as written by and Jerry Cantrell Nicholas Speck....
Who am I, is this me
Am I one or thirteen
I’ve gone cold, hard to deal
Used to stand where I kneel

Everybody listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Does yours say what mine says

I want more than I need
I don’t know what it is real

Everybody listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Does yours say what mine says
Any time I listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Does yours say what mine says

Whispering of names, faces, uniforms I've worn
And all that is gone
Always climbing, to fall down again
Holding on to everything
That's not what it seems

I’ve been told, dreaming’s free
Think I’ll go back to sleep

Everybody listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Does yours say what mine says
Any time I listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Does yours say what mine says

Every time I listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
‘Cause you’ll see what mine says

Calling out the names, faces, uniforms I've worn
And all that is gone
Always climbing, to fall down again
Holding on to everything
That's not what it seems

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about the band's past and the different things they've gone through like the different albums, the deaths of Layne Staley and Mike Starr to drug-related circumstances, and the move from Seattle to Los Angeles. Also getting something the echoes of PTSD.

    Fun fact: In the music, there is a window with a picture on the edge and it looks like in the frame there is a picture of Layne.
