"Voices" as written by and Michael/donegan Wengren....
So, are you breathin'?
So, are you breathin'?
No, no are you breathin'?
So are you breathin', no?

Wake up are you alive
Will you listen to me
I'm gonna talk about some freaky shit now
Someone is gonna die when you listen to me
Let the living die, let the living die

Say, wake up are you alive
Will you listen to me
I'm gonna talk about some freaky shit now
Someone is gonna die when you listen to me
Let the living die, let the living die

Say, are you breathing now
Do the wicked see you
You still breathing
You're making me known
Are you breathing now
Do the wicked see you
You still breathing

So, what's up
I wonder why do you listen to me
I'm gonna make you do some freaky shit now
Insane, your gonna die when you listen to me
Let the living die, let the living die, say

Say, so, what's up
I wonder why do you listen to me
I'm gonna make you do some freaky shit now
Insane, your gonna die when you listen to me
Let the living die, let the living die, say

Say, are you breathing now
Do the wicked see you
You still breathing
You're making me known
Are you breathing now
Do the wicked see you
You still breathing

So

Can't you imagine how good going through this will make you feel?
I promise, no one will ever know
There will be no chance of you getting caught
They never loved you anyway
So come on, be a man
And do what you are compelled to do

Save Me God, God, God, God, God, God, God, God, God, God, God

I can hear the voice but I don't want to listen
Strap me down and tell me I'll be all right
I can feel the subliminal need to be one
With the voice and make everything go
I can hear the voice but I don't want to listen
Strap me down and tell me I'll be all right
I can feel the subliminal need to be one with
The voice and make everything all right

Are you breathing now
Do the wicked see you
You still breathing
You're making me known

Are you breathing now
Do the wicked see you
You still breathing
So
Are you breathin', no?
So
Are you breathin', now, now
So
Are you breathin'
So
Are you breathin' now

    General CommentNo one ever mentioned what David said about this song on the DVD documentary, Disturbed MOL. I guess I have to be the one to say it. David said, "I was watching a special on the Discovery Channel about voices in the head and it inspired me to write a song about thoughts of a psychotic individual that hears voices to tell him to do terrible things to people."
    Their you have it.

    General Commentok, its about voices in his head probably, no intro to the cd, and when he says "let the living die" i think he meant that in a literal sense, as in, he's gonna do some messed up violent shit, it's saying how he has these impulses (voices) to do some crazy shit, and how he has to fight them

    General CommentA voice inside of his head telling him to kill someone else "someone is gonna die when you listen to me" or himself "insane you're gonna die when you listen to me." Just Kill anything alive "let the living die".

    General Commentthis song reminds me of being manic-depressive. when you so severly manic that you experience psychosis--you hear voices. and man, do they say some freaky shit!
    sometimes you are compelled to do what they say-which can get you into alot of trouble. so you try to fight them and not listen. sometimes you feel like maybe you need to be strapped down before you hurt yourself or someone else

    General CommentPunk in drublic.. logically, the intro to the CD thing does seem correct, but then again it could have a double meaning as a lot of songs do.

    General CommentI love this song, it works on so many levels. It is also the most bugged out song I ever heard, when I used to get high. Getting high is okay for awhile, it helped me deal with stress, but after awhile I think it becomes counterproductive. In the words of Hendrix, peace and happiness!

    General Commentthats exactly what I thought it meant, about Disturbed telling you that about the craziness of the entire album. Maybe it is about killing yourself but its an amazing song nonetheless.
