Song Lyric Sunday – Hollow by Breaking Benjamin

I’m feeling like a terrible host. I haven’t listened to all your entries in three weeks now! I know I always say it, but I really do mean it; I will catch up. One of these days I will also stay caught up for more than a week.

This song suits me just fine today. It makes me want to listen to the whole album and just drown in the grayness of it all. I think there are beautiful moments in the album, but I wouldn’t call it “happy”.

Anyway, I don’t have much else to say. I just hope you enjoy the song as much as I do!

Stay alive
Heaven holds a place for us tonight
I am paralyzed
Close your eyes
Drive away the cloud that hides the light
And leave the pain behind
Dead alive
Find a way to bury all the lies
Escape the pain inside
‘Cause I don’t want to fall
Or let you go
Love left me hollow
I’m with you in the end
Cold, crippled, and shallow
Don’t leave me here again
Fruit of life
I can hear the voices of the hive
Chemicals collide
Loaded smile
Light the way for those you left behind
Set the earth on fire
‘Cause I don’t want enough
I want it all
Love left me hollow
I’m with you in the end
Cold, crippled, and shallow
Don’t leave me here again
I can’t go on
You are bound to break me in
I come undone
Don’t you drag me down again
I’ve come undone!
Love left me hollow
I’m with you in the end
Cold, crippled, and shallow
Don’t leave me here again
I can’t go on
You are bound to break me in
I come undone
Don’t you drag me down again
