SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE: VOICES

(Lyrics by: Steve Rubin, Music by: Russ Haines)


Nobody likes to talk about Schzophrenia, not even the band. But it strikes 1 in 100 people, and that means that you probably know someone who has it. This song is an angry little ditty about the disease.

This song is an alternate to "Jeremy". They share the same music (only the vocal track is different). But that vocal track is so different, it even has different words.


Steve sez:
Schzophrenia rarely has anything to do with "split personality", so the next time you can't make up your mind, please don't say that you're being schizophrenic.


Listen:

Life was great when I was a kid
I played with friends and did what they did
Now I sit alone on the skid

Voices tell me what to do
They mostly make more sense than you
You talk too fast I get confused

  I'm schizophrenic, can't think
  Thoughts wash over me and don't link

They got it wrong on your TV
Its not a split personality
My head keeps buzzing like a bee

Who can I turn to in my void
When people treat me like a droid
Some days, with pills, I feel quite buoyed

  I'm schizophrenic, can't think
  Thoughts wash over me and don't link

Guitar Solo

  I'm schizophrenic, can't think
  Thoughts wash over me and don't link

The mental ward is no great prize
But in it, calming routine lies
But they deinstitutionalize

There's no more funds to sickness treat
I'll never get back on my feet
Suffering millions on the street
