I hear voices in my head
They counsel me
They understand
They talk to me

You got your rules and your religion
All designed to keep you safe
But when rules start getting broken
You start questionin' your faith
I have a voice that is my savior
Hates to love and loves to hate
I have the voice that has the knowledge
And the power to rule your fate

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that's drying
I feel tension rising

I hear voices in my head
They counsel me
They understand
They talk to me, they talk to me (Oh...)
They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I'll do to you
They talk to me (talk to me, talk to me, talk to me)
They talk to me (talk to me, talk to me, talk to me)

All the lawyers are defenseless
All the doctors are diseased
And the preachers all are sinners
And police just take the grease
All you judges, you are guilty
All the bosses, I will fire
All you bankers will have losses
Politicians, all are liars

I see darkness falling
I hear voices calling
I feel justice crawling
I see faith has fallen

I hear voices in my head
They counsel me
They understand
They talk to me, they talk to me (Oh...)
They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I'll do to you
They talk to me (talk to me, talk to me, talk to me)

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that's drying
I feel tension rising

I hear voices in my head
They counsel me
They understand
They talk to me, they talk to me (Yeah...)
They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I'll do to you
They talk to me (talk to me, talk to me, talk to me)
They talk to me (talk to me, talk to me, talk to me)

    My opinion, It means the world around him is a corrupt place, everyone in a position of powers and responsibility is corrupt and has acquired said power in an underhand manner. Therefore, the lesson he has learned is that he has to do the same, the desperate methods of achieveing that power and hanging onto it are coming to him, what he sees makes the thoughts or the voices. The mentality of the lyrics is the self-justification of his actions to do so by any means necessary and if it was not him it would be someone else.

    I hear voices in my head
    The council me
    They understand
    They Talk to me

    You got your rules and your religion
    All designed to keep you safe
    But when rules start getting broken
    You start questioning your faith

    Hates to love and loves to hate
    I have the voice that has the knowledge
    And the power to rule your fate

    I hear voices crying
    I see heroes dying
    I taste the blood that's drying
    I feel the tension rising

    Voices for me in this song mean the death people that talk to the person and said to him what he has to do. Reminds me the viper randy orton
