Voices In My Head
Falling in Reverse Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The voices in my head keep on telling me to pray
'Cause I'm spinning like a carousel, circling the drain
Hit the bottom of the bottle, I don't wanna feel the pain
But that is all I got for now, I don't wanna talk about it
The voices in my head keep on begging me to stay
If I pull the trigger now then the demons go away
And I know my time is coming so there ain't no time to waste
So that is all I got for now, I don't wanna talk about it

The voices in my head keep telling me to choose a side
It's heaven or hell like it's do or die
I'm a sad boy, you know better
Please don't make this last forever

The voices in my head keep telling me I'm not okay
It's feeling like a hurricane in my brain
Dark clouds, hard times, bad weather
Please don't make this last forever

The voices in my head keep telling me I'm gonna (die)
And I don't wanna talk about the drama, I'm trauma (tized)
They're tellin' me I'm fine but we both know that's a fuckin' (lie)
I'm losing my mind but I don't wanna talk about it

The voices in my head keep giving me the worst advice
Kamikaze crash like a suicide
I'm a lost boy, you know better
Please don't make this last forever

The voices in my head keep telling me I'm insane
And maybe I'm a little bit, that won't change
Dark clouds, hard times, bad weather
Please don't make this last forever

The voices in my head keep telling me I'm gonna (die)
And I don't wanna talk about the drama, I'm trauma (tized)
They're tellin' me I'm fine but we both know that's a fuckin' (lie)
I'm losing my mind but I don't wanna talk about

The voices in my head keep telling me I'm cursed
I'm paranoid, I don't wanna make it any worse
We're all gonna die but first things first
I'ma take the world with me when they put me in the dirt
The voices in my head keep telling me I'm cursed
I'm paranoid, I don't wanna make it any worse
We're all gonna die but first things first
I'ma take the world with me when they put me in the dirt

Move
(Move)
Voices in my head keep telling me I'm cursed
I'm paranoid, I don't wanna make it any worse
We're all gonna die, first things first
I'ma take the world with me when they put me in the dirt

The voices in my head keep telling me I'm gonna (die)
And I don't wanna talk about the drama, I'm trauma (tized)
They're tellin' me I'm fine but we both know that's a fuckin' (lie)
I'm losing my mind but I don't wanna talk about it

The voices in my head keep on telling me to pray
'Cause I'm spinning like a carousel, circling the drain




Hit the bottom of the bottle, I don't wanna feel the pain
I'm losing my mind but I don't wanna talk about it

The voices in my head
Keep on telling me to pray
'Cause I'm spinning like a
Carousel circling the drain

Hit the bottom of the bottle
I don't wanna feel the pain
But that is all I got for now
I don’t wanna talk about it

The voices in my head
Keep on begging me to stay
If I pull the trigger now
Then the demons go away

And I know my time is coming
So there ain’t no time to waste
So that is all I got for now
I don’t wanna talk about it

The voices in my head
Keep telling me to choose a side
Heaven or hell like it’s do or die
I'm a sad boy you know better
Please don’t make this last forever

The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm not okay
'Cause it’s feeling like a hurricane in my brain
Dark clouds hard times bad weather
Please don’t make this last forever

(Eye, e eye)
The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm gonna (die)
And I don’t wanna talk
About the drama, I'm traumatized

They keep telling me I'm fine
We both know that’s a fucking (lie)
I'm losing my mind but
I don’t wanna talk about it

The voices in my head
Keep giving me the worst advice
Kamikaze crash like a suicide
I'm a lost boy you know better
Please don’t make this last forever

The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm insane
And maybe I'm a little bit
That won’t change
Dark clouds hard times bad weather
Please don’t make this last forever

(Eye, e eye)
The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm gonna (die)
And I don’t wanna talk
About the drama, I'm traumatized

They keep telling me I'm fine
We both know that’s a fucking (lie)
I'm losing my mind but
I don’t wanna talk about it

The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm cursed
I'm paranoid, I don’t wanna make it any worse
We’re all gonna die but first things first
I'ma take the world with me
When they put me in the dirt

The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm cursed
I'm paranoid, I don’t wanna make it any worse
We’re all gonna die but first things first
I'ma take the world with me
When they put me in the dirt (move)

The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm cursed
I'm paranoid, I don’t wanna make it any worse
We’re all gonna die but first things first

When they put me in the dirt

(Eye, e eye)
The voices in my head
Keep telling me I'm gonna (die)
And I don’t wanna talk
About the drama, I'm traumatized

They keep telling me I'm fine

Yeah, Jensen Noen and the team are awesome! That music video director is former Down & Dirty's guitarist from Denis Shaforostoff days if I recall things correctly. So insane.

It took me a while to realize the voices aren’t antagonizing him. They’re poking him on the shoulder like “hey bud, you’re not ok, we need to stop this spiral” But he doesn’t want to talk about it. Trust me I get it. This song is SO well written.

@Bellestarr49

Yesssss 🙌 🙌 🙌 This song hits on all cylinders.

@kamikazepilot5041

And then when it talks about him trying to convince himself that he's okay but knowing it's not, transitioning to thoughts of suicide HE IS A LYRICAL GENIUS!!!!
