27 Voices (Live)

by Jim Patton & Sherry Brokus



27 Voices has been played on radio stations from folk to a Death Metal station in Germany. It's a paean to the many voices that pull me from one project to another, all insisting theirs is the most important one.


27 Voices

I’ve got 27 voices in my head
25 tell me I’d be better off dead
Twelve get scared in the middle of the night
One says: Jim you better hold on tight
Most of them are pretty sure I’ve been misled
By the other 26 voices in my head
I’ve got 27 voices in my head
27 voices

I’ve got 27 voices in my brain
Two remind me of my greatest shame
Three can’t even remember my name
Four of them are clinically insane
One voice howling like a hurricane
At the other 26 voices in my brain
I’ve got 27 voices in my brain
27 voices

One voice fills me with regret
Second voice says: forgive and forget
Third voice tells me: that’s a sucker’s bet
Fourth voice says: You take what you can get
One voice wishing he had never met
The other 26 voices in my head
I’ve got 27 voices in my head
27 voices
