Haldol could help.

Haliperidol - drugs by schizofrenia? Well. Or just have a kind, friendly chat with voices of agents of CIA.

Or, wear an aluminum foil hat.

There is another way to take this besides mental health. It could mean that he has been hearing rumors or gossip. I could see this sentence being said at an office lunch about rumors about what management is planning. Or how about a spy reporting to his handler?

That's what I was thinking. Could a native speaker please confirm that this sentence can be used this way?

Why is it not also, "Lately, I hear words."?

words is almost always מילים

Makes sense, I guess those are holdovers from studying Biblical Hebrew.

Might want to get that checked out by a doctor... Is this a special Hebrew way of saying I was deaf but now I can hear? Lately would indicate one did not hear things before.

La’kharona ani shomea dvarim.

La'kharona... with nikkud it's לָאַחֲרוֹנָה. The אַ is almost lost in this speaker's pronunciation.
