Voice in My Head
Last night I heard a voice say I've been getting in my own way
I think I'm falling in the deep end, so I haven't been sleeping
Last night I heard a voice in my head
Said it's an emergency, said he had some words for me
He said, "What you writing these raps for?
You'll never be a lyrical genius
And what you got on that mask for?
You'll never be a spiritual being
Coz I know your mind, you're sick as a demon"
I said, "Don't we all have invisible demons?
Don't we all fight our innermost leanings?
Imperfect as they are, we give 'em minimal freedom"
He said, "Lemme tell you 'bout your imperfections
Listen well kid." His words hit perfection
"You think you're in control, but you're under control
You're empty inside, but your best efforts can only cover the hole
You're recovering? No
You're searching for something to comfort the soul
You buckle when the pressure's on, you got rubbers for bones
You've got a soft core but you think you're tougher than most
You claim to be a philophobic
But you're in love with her though
I know you'd love to propose, but that's too tough for you though
Your insecurities are holding you back - "rubbers for bones"
I know it all, you're just a crownless chess piece
You could be collateral damage or turned to debris"
He said, "No pun intended, but don't tempt me
I'll introduce you to a stress piece, make your chest beat
I'll make you fall every time you try to rise
Over and over til you forfeit the final prize
Your weaknesses, that's a list I'll exploit
I'll make sure u feel a limitless void
That's gonna haunt you louder than an infinite noise"
I just sat there pissed and annoyed
Resisting words that we're flawed by off-logic
I said, "I'm not about to let you mess with my conscience
I got this..."
