I lie in bed
They're shouting,
Shouting at me,
Asking me to do things
I don't want to.

I face them
It spills out
I tell them everything -
The truth about
All the things I can't do.

I need to escape
These voices in my head
That make me feel it's just too late.

I need to escape
These voices in my head
That make me feel inadequate.

I close my eyes,
Their faces blur.
I try so hard but
I can't erase them -
They're within me.

No matter what,
They scream at me.
I cover my ears
To shut them out
But they're shut in.

I need to escape
These voices in my head
That make me feel I'm just too late.

I need to escape
These voices in my head
That make me feel inadequate.
