"Disco//Very" as written by and Jennifer Lee Lindberg Emily Camille Kokal....
I've got a friend with a melody that will kill
She'll eat you alive
Like cyanide is poison, she'll eat you alive

Don't you battle, we'll kill you
Rip you up and tear you in two

Only in the sound of the voices I scream

I heard my name, now I'm gone, tell me what I did
You saw me standing on my lone mountain
Dare me to play, not to put it off
'Cause the tears are not worth the wait

Your loveliness is so worth it
You're another one in a long long time
Wrestling people for peace

Only in the sound of the voices I scream
Only in the sound of your voices I scream
Only in the sound of the voices I scream

I make room for everyone
I make room for everyone
I need to take a break!

Do you wanna look in my mind
Open up and see what you find
Holdin' on to just what I wanted
Hiding like a force it was...

Just behind the door, when I wasn't not looking out
For nothing anymore, but ooh look what I found
I was always talking too much
But only in the sound of the voices I scream

Only in the sound of the voices I scream

    Song MeaningSchizophrenia and Dissociative identity disorder, hands down. There's two or more personalities going on here - take a look.

    "I've got a friend with a melody that will kill
    She'll eat you alive
    Like cyanide is poison, she'll eat you alive"
    Personality one (P1), possibly the 'person' herself, speaking of P2, an agressive personality.

    "Don't you battle, we'll kill you
    Rip you up and tear you in two"
    All personalities speaking to P1.

    "Only in the sound of the voices I scream"
    Schizophrenia.

    "I heard my name, now I'm gone, tell me what I did
    You saw me standing on my lone mountain
    Dare me to play, not to put it off
    'Cause the tears are not worth the wait"
    Probably P1 after a personality switch, speaking of somebody totally different speaking to her about what 'she' has done, possibly as P2

    "Your loveliness is so worth it
    You're another one in a long long time
    Wrestling people for peace"
    Either one of the personalities (P3) or the same totally different person speaking of or to 'her'.

    "Only in the sound of the voices I scream"

    "I make room for everyone
    I make room for everyone
    I need to take a break!"
    What do you think?

    "Do you wanna look in my mind
    Open up and see what you find
    Holdin' on to just what I wanted
    Hiding like a force it was..."
    Still here. 'She' is just trying to keep it together.

    "Just behind the door, when I wasn't not looking out
    For nothing anymore, but ooh look what I found
    I was always talking too much
    But only in the sound of the voices I scream"

    "Only in the sound of the voices I scream"

    General CommentA funny story about this song:
    When the band was writing this album they rented a house in Joshua Tree for several weeks. One night the cops showed up (the girls were super freaked bc they had a bong right out in the middle of the floor). The officer told them someone had made a noise complaint that the music the band was playing was making them actually nauseous and sick. So after the cop left the girls were like "well fuck yea this song is going on the album if it actually made someone sick!!"
