Voices in my head like a bullet in my head
Agony in my mind
Each voice feels like a splinter in my skull
like shards of bone, fragments that turn into a nagging pain

The nagging pain like a bullet in my head
The insults hurtling at me
arguments with me, about me
Flying round and round
round and round
It feels like there's a bullet in my head
I can't get it out
Nothing can take away the pain
A bullet in my head
