#14: Adam Rabin “Too Many Voices”

Written and performed by Adam Rabin

I had some opinions to work out, it would seem. Cable news rots your brain, folks. Yes, even the shows that agree with your point of view.

I got to break out my alto recorder, JTV Variax electric for some spaghetti western leads, and my 6- and 12-string acoustic guitars. Sorry, no video this time.

Thanks to Ornan McLean for the title suggestion

Too many voices on the air
Too many voices on the air
They pull their facts out from who-knows-where
Too many voices on the air

Too many voices set in stone
Too many voices set in stone
Never hear a word except their own
Too many voices set in stone

And the words that we keep to ourselves
are the words that we most want to say

Too many voices crowd my brain
Too many voices crowd my brain
Lashing out against their deepest pain
Too many voices crowd my brain

And the words that we keep to ourselves
are the words that we most want to say
And the words that we whisper too softly
are the words that will never go away

Too many voices shouted down
Too many voices shouted down
The wisest words don’t ever get to make a sound

Too many voices in the choir
Too many voices in the choir
Each one tries to reach a little higher

And the words that we keep to ourselves
are the words that we most want to say
And the words that we whisper too softly
are the words that will never… go… away
