the voice…

what’s on your mind…what’re you thinkin’…you believe in somethin’ that’s not there…can’t touch it…smell it…hear it…

I hear it…whispers to me…

whispers to ya’…like some lover at night in bed with a cigarette burnin’…like Steve McQueen or somethin’…some quiet man…

he talks to me in my sleep…tells me all ’bout the other side…what’s waitin’ for me…things…

what kinda things…

ghosts from my past…people lined-up on the other side just waitin’ to see me ‘gain…folks I haven’t seen in ages…parents…cousins…old boyfriends…

waitin’ on ya’…

yeah… waitin’ on me…to be done with this life…get my new body…walk the streets of gold…my mansion on the hill…and have God tell me…good job girl…good job…

this voice tells ya’ that…

tells me that…

true story…

true…don’t make-up stuff like that…

think you’re hearin’ things…think you gone crazy girl…when’s the last time you went to church…

don’t need no church…

you’re relyin’ solely on a voice you hear…

yep…

what if it’s some audible illusion…just hearin’ things…

I’m not…this voice is pure…it’s honest…real…

you say so…

I do…been there since I was a kid…like a friend…givin’ me the inside scoop…

inside scoop huh…

yeah…the inside scoop…beyond this world…this earth’ll perish one day ya’ know…nothin’ left…either be in Heaven or Hell…

think so huh…

yep…that’s what he tells me…

I see…

your choice…

not no kinda predestination…my choice huh…

that’s what the voice tells me…

sure ’bout that…

yes…certain…

I see…

hope so…hope so…hate to leave you behind…

yeah…I hear ya’…

voice told me to tell you so…

did…

yeah…he did…

better listen to ya’ huh…

better…

o.k.

think I’m crazy…

little…

well I’m not…just doin’ what the voice tells me to do…

I see…

it’s all just a matter of followin’ directions…his directions…the voice…

the voice…

yes…the voice…
