Disembodied Voices

Post by sleepysilverdoor »

Phlebia

You left me abused, left me confused, distort my view
Such a piece of human waste, invading my space, frozen in my place

Memories of you are haunting me in my head like disembodied voices
Memories of you controlling me have got me questioning my choice

Change my name to protect myself from you because always try to
Fight and gaslight me treat me like I'm crazy constantly
So imagine my luck when you were struck down, hit and run,
Try to get of of the bed, seeing red, hit your head, now you're dead
I didn't murder you but this is such a great opportunity
To get you back for all the awful things that you always did you me
It's like a daydream, how could this outcome finally come to be?
Your insides are something that you will no longer need

Memories of you are haunting my in my head like disembodied voices
Memories of you controlling me have got me questioning my choices
Memories of you controlling me in my head like disembodied voices
Memories of you are haunting me in my head like disembodied voices

laughter

You were no good...
Let's do some good...
Your heart is good...
Your lungs are good...
Your kidney's good...
Your liver's good...
Intestines good...
It feels so good...to
DISSECT
YOU

"disembodied voice" - Third Cat

I thought I got away
but the voice remains
whispering in my ear
yeah you're tricking my brain

with all these words, I can't stand to hear
pushing them out so I'm free from all the fear

I
I don't
I don't know but I imagine
You rarely ever, never think of me

And I
I don't
I don't need a reaction
Thankyou for letting me be

Second guessing all the ifs and hows
Second guessing in the here and now
And I can hear all the voices talking to me

I'm
I'm not
I'm not one to hold grudges
I'm just the one that you betrayed

And I'm
I'm not
I'm not looking for justice
I'm just glad you are both okay

Second guessing all the ifs and hows
Second guessing in the here and now
And I can hear all the voices talking to me

The disembodied voice is speaking to my soul
It gives me no clear choice as I'm losing control

Second guessing all the ifs and hows
Second guessing in the here and now
And I can hear all the voices talking to me
I can hear all the voices talking to me

what is the noise heard beyond these walls?
it's the sound of a thousands bulls heading for a china shop
what is the noise heard beyond these walls?
it's the sound of a fog horn without a ship to stop
what is the noise heard beyond these walls?
it's the sound of someone who clearly doesn't give a fuck!

I can't hear myself
all I hear is a disembodied voice of something else

what is the noise heard beyond these walls?
it's the sound of Neanderthals raging on throughout the night
what is the noise heard beyond these walls?
it's the sound of testosterone pushing reason out of sight
what is the noise heard beyond these walls?
it's the sound of someone who clearly doesn't give a fuck!

Disembodied Voice
The Pannacotta Army

I recognise the silhouette
The past I wish I could forget
But it’s burned onto my retinas
And you can’t put time in reverse

I hoped that disembodied voice
Could be drowned out with all of this noise
But I can still hear what it says
Like a bomb going off in my head

Right here
Is where I get off
I can’t wait
For the curtain to drop

A bad taste of something I regret
Still burning like a cigarette
But it’s hard to spit it out
And it lingers in my mouth

Right now
Is when I want to get off
I won’t wait
For the music to stop

Disembodied Voice
by Lichen Throat

Erik the Red and his famous son
Sailed toward the setting sun.
Ferdinand and Isabella
Sponsored that Italian fellow.
Heretics and privateers
Crossed the ocean, year by year.
Why did they listen to the disembodied voice
Whispering in their ears?
Why did they act as if they had no choice
When they boarded the ships at the pier.

Some had claimed to have bought some land
For a box of candles and a beaded strand.
Men with flintlocks and coonskin caps
Went farther west and set their traps.
From the mountains and from the flats
Came fox-fur stoles and beaver hats.
Why did they listen to the disembodied voice
Whispering in their ears?
Why did they act as if they had no choice
As they cut the trees and shot the deer?

They listened to Horace and listened to Liz:
“Go west, young man, go west.”

They wrote about the wild frontier,
Ignored the tribes who’d long been here.
When gold was found in ’49,
In denim pants, they dug their mines.
When they reached the Pacific shore,
They couldn’t go west any more.
Why did they listen to the disembodied voice
Whispering in their ears?
Why did they act as if they had no choice
Than to overrun the hemisphere?

Disembodied Voice
By JP Nickolas

Unrelenting, unremitting, unabating, unending
Noxious thoughts in my poise (poison)
Unrelenting, unremitting, unabating, unending
Noxious thoughts in my poise (poison) infest me

You, you’re not misunderstood you’re just boring
They smell how pathetic you are
(you) are not alluring
They don’t even like the fake you

Daggers fly from this disembodied voice
With 1000 silent cuts it destroys me
Unrelenting, unremitting, unabating, unending
Noxious thoughts are my poison

They, they all put up with you
They’re just being polite
Lightly they digress and try forget
Forget that you’re here

Unrelenting, unremitting, unabating, unending
Noxious thoughts in my poise (poison)
Anticipation, confrontation, recollection, retrospection
They all syphon my breath
I palpitate with shame and hide in solitude

Disembodied voice - Brown Word and the Big Whine

There's an urge coming loud and clear
And it's talking to you

What do you think you're doing?

Disembodied voice
Saying you don't have a choice
Disembodied voice
Tell me you don't have a choice

There's a call on the telephone
And it's pulling at you
Now all money's gone
And you won't say where you've been

What do you think you're doing?

Disembodied voice
Saying you don't have a choice
Disembodied voice
Tell me you don't have a choice

So now you listen when it asks
It's taking everything you have
You used to be someone
Now tell me you don't have a choice

Disembodied Voice
by Jon Porobil (the artist formerly known as Jon Eric)

Well it gives
And it takes
And it gives and it takes and it takes and it gives
All right
And I do what it says

Well it lives
And it dies
And it lives and it dies and it dies and it lives
All right
And I do what it says

You can wake up just to punch a clock
Earn your little daily bread
I’ve been satisfied to toe the line
Of the voice inside my head

Well it comes
And it goes
And it comes and it goes and it goes and it comes
All right
And I do what it says

I probably ought to mind it more than I do
Being underneath its thumb
I don’t even know exactly where this voice is coming from

You can’t refer me to a therapist
For hashing out my hopes and fears
I do all the talking I’ll ever need
To the voice between my ears

Well it rocks
And it rolls
And it rocks and rolls and it rolls and it rocks
All right
And I do what it says
All right
And it says “jump” I say “how high?”
All right
And I do what it says

Disembodied Voice - Night Sky

Befouled monstrous
Packrat throwing
Pebbles of pain
Hurling agony from his door
He doesn’t aim
He doesn’t care
He simply waits
And listens for echoing roars

Roars of pain
Roars of sorrow
Roars of loneliness
A reflecting chorus
Of disembodied voices
Roars of loneliness
Roars of sorrow
Roars of pain
A reflected chorus
Of disembodied voices

Hunched furious
Packrat typing
Tweets of rage
Might just spark a civilian war
He doesn’t aim
He doesn’t care
He simply waits
And listens for echoing roars

Roars of pain
Roars of sorrow
Roars of loneliness
A reflecting chorus
Of disembodied voices
Roars of loneliness
Roars of sorrow
Roars of pain
A reflecting chorus
Of disembodied voices

An aching chasm a bottomless need
Hard to fathom the endless gluttony
For pain for sorrow for loneliness

Roars of pain
Roars of sorrow
Roars of loneliness
A reflecting chorus
Of disembodied voices
Roars of loneliness
Roars of sorrow
Roars of pain
A reflecting chorus
Of disembodied voices

Disembodied Voice - Tim Hinkle

Get out of bed
Put on clothes
Brush your teeth
Blow your nose
Tie your shoes
Catch the bus
Come to work
Be with us

Listen to the disembodied voice
You look at me as if we have a choice
How would we know whether to mourn or to rejoice
Without the disembodied voice?

Hear just our words
Speak just our words
Watch out for lips
In shapes not heard
Find a face
That does not hear
Drip the drug
Into its ear

Imagine making choices on your own
Without the voices that you’ve always known

Disembodied Voice - Future Boy

There was a disembodied voice inside of my head
It said, "You outta be dead, you really outta be dead"
I said, "But what if I decide to stay alive instead
And take you out my head?" So I took it out of my head.

I reached between the folds of my grey matter
With a toothpick and a piece of gum
It gave the voice something to chew on
While I tried to figure out where it had come from

Now there's a disembodied voice living under my bead
And it still wants me dead, yeah it still wants me dead
I say, "Let's have a conversation about life instead.
What are the things you dread?
What are the fears you've bred?

The disembodied voice took a deep breath
And prepared to rattle off a list
But my mind wandered off into the distant past
And thought about the girls that I had never kissed...

"No one loves you
No one cares
No one notices
No one dares
To reach out when you're in pain
To hold your hand in the rain
You'll be alone til the end
Cuz I'm the only friend
You've ever had"

I asked the voice for some proof
Expecting only flimsy excuses
It said, "Here is the truth:
You're just a mediocre middle aged white dude
You're just a mediocre middle aged white dude
You're just a mediocre middle aged white dude
You're just a mediocre middle aged white dude"

Disembodied Voice by J.A.N.

Hello, this is your captain speaking
We've hit an iceberg and the ship is sinking
To be more frank, the world is bleeding
Sorry Journey but I've stopped believing
Doomsday clock, long past midnight
Apocalypse parties for the socialites
Celebrate a new swell of infection
A landslide victory for natural selection
...
And my bank accounts looking kinda wrecked
Not enough zeroes in the stimulus check
I'll survive on hopes and dreams
and Velveeta shells and cheese
Look ma, I'm quarantine thicc
Can't afford healthcare, now i'm sick
Through the teeth and past the gums
Something wicked creeps into my lungs
Death has many varieties
thanks to this wretched society
So many ways to go
Maybe a cop will shoot me through my window
Be a martyr for a week or two
But the news cycle has to move
Viral video, that hip new trend
Boris Johnson has a new girlfriend
...
My children will mourn my death
My children will choke on my debt
My kids will have no air to breathe
Well qualified to represent the poverty
Clearly mistakes have been made
Came too late with the youth crusade
Greta Thunberg on the cover of Time
Just wasn't enough to save these lives
Screaming from the great beyond
There's so much more work to be done
Full fathom five, darkest of days
The world needs to suffer a sea change
And I don't mean the melt of the glaciers
Or some kind of mythical saviour
We need a paradigm shift
Too bad no one really gives a shit
Too busy looking for the hook of this song
Too bleak for a singalong
Now I've lost the thread
That's a shame, you're already dead
Couldn't hear the call for action
Cause Auntie Jo's an anti-vaxxer
It's a conspiracy anyway
I saw it in my twitter feed today...

Author's note: This song is kind of about passive suicidal ideation, and kind of about staying up late trying to squeeze more time out of a day at the cost of sleep.

At times I feel the undertow
Pulling grains of sand from underneath my feet
Like a disembodied voice
Singing lullabies to me
Singing give up
Lay down
And sleep

Like a disembodied voice
Singing lullabies to me
Singing give up
Lay down
And sleep
I am definitely too square for how experimental this is, but I can imagine that if I was in the right state of mind, the section starting at 2:20 might transport me to another dimension - jeffhenderson

Disembodied voice
By Conspiracy of Joy

Running through these palace hallways
Never looking back or sideways
Wishing I could find the door
That opens up my mind
And the voices whisper follow me
Come my darling, we could be
Happy here, happy dear
Don’t you love me? X2

And they whisper,
‘never ever again’
And they whisper,
‘never ever again’

Try to find me here
Try to find me dear
Try and find what we had left
Behind the day we intertwined
Happy cheer flew through the air
Everyone was joyful there
But now we know the Magic’s gone
No ones lost but no ones won

And it whispers,
‘never ever again’
And it whispers,
‘never ever again’

Join me darling join me now
We’ll struggle through, we must somehow
Join me darling run with me
The walls can’t hold us, well be free

And you whisper,
‘never ever again’
And you whisper,
‘never ever again’

These gilded hallways
This labyrinth chase
Was all a ploy
To just erase
The way we looked in each other’s eyes
The only blue since we lost the skies

And you whisper,
‘never ever again’
And you whisper,
‘never ever again’

And I’m shouting,
‘never ever again’
And I’m flying,
‘never ever again’

And you’ve lost me,
‘never ever again’
I am gone,
‘never ever again’

You are here
And I’ll never ever again be there
I am free
Never ever again will I be there

And I whisper...

That isn't the world, it's only my mind telling me "no, you'll never be loved as much as you want, as much as you think everyone else deserves to be loved, deserves to be told 'you're a beautiful soul, a beautiful soul.'"

I'm closing my eyes, turning away. I'm not going to listen to what this spectre has to say: a disembodied voice. A disembodied voice.

Hold onto my arms to keep me from having all of these dreams. They're weighing me down, please pull me back up and I'll pull right back because everyone else deserves to be loved, deserves to be told "you're a beautiful soul, a beautiful soul."

I'll say it again until you believe, until every night you can hear me when you close your eyes to sleep: a disembodied voice. A disembodied voice.

Disembodied voice
Runs around my head
I can see you scoffing there
Inspiring all this dread

Disembodied Voice
Please don't say those things
It's been hard, I know it has
But we can still be friends

Disembodied Voice
Well you can't rune my day.
And it's ok to change our plans
When shown a better way

Disembodied Voice
That's right I took your keys
You say so many crazy things
And yes I know your free

Well, when we think we'er right
Don't use words like there swords
Lets try working together
Just relax, and listen more
