lyrics

I never meant let it go
they said I'd be stronger, alone
but left to bad advice, and my insight
it seems that I'm still growing cold

I'm never suffering again
I've got these invisible friends
I picked a spot out by the tracks
that's where my time I'll spend

you've never been there before
because solitude has existed since I first began
and my heads not broke
its not my fault there's more than one voice in my head

I chased all my friends away
and I'm lying in my waste
and I drank away the days
strangers now avoid my face

I thought I heard the voice of god
he was calling out my name
but it was voice number 8
the pathetic one, he was crying out in pain

I never meant to be alone
and I'm not stronger, though I've grown
but left to bad advice, and no insides
it seems that I have lost my home

yet I'm suffering again
I've got my invisible friends
I got my spot to lay my head
it's underneath the riverbed

you've never seen me before
but my solitude was my demise before I began
and my heads not broke
but I can say there is no blood left on my hands

I chased all my friends away
now I'm lying in my waste
and I drank away the pain
strangers now avoid my face

and I thought I heard the voice of god
he was crying out my name
but it was voice seventeen
the angelic one, she lets me know when I'm in pain/when I'm insane
but if it's voice seventeen, I'm insane
