Song Description

A song about a man who has lost his love through drink and drugs

Lyrics

Thats why they call me the hollow man
Alone without her, my life's just a a sham
She left me when I drove her away
Now she wont ever come back to stay

Thats what I am just the hollow man
Living each day the best as I can
Empty and bare, alone and cold
Nothing to live for no-one to hold
Thats why they call me the hollowman
Drugged up or drunk whenever I can
Hoping they'd help but only you can
So I remain the hollowman



hiding away from that which I am
Abusing it all, whatever I can
Couldnt keep up what I aspired to be
The mask it slipped and you saw right through me

Thats what I am just the hollow man
Living each day the best as I can
Empty and bare, alone and cold
Nothing to live for no-one to hold
Thats why they call me the hollowman
Drugged up or drunk whenever I can
Hoping they'd help but only you can
So I remain the hollowman



I've made my bed, got to lie in it
Got to wear that cap because its a good fit
Some say if you loved me you'd take me back
But you wont forgive, wont cut me no slack

Thats what I am just the hollow man
Living each day the best as I can
Empty and bare, alone and cold
Nothing to live for no-one to hold
Thats why they call me the hollowman
Drugged up or drunk whenever I can
Hoping they'd help but only you can
So I remain the hollowman



So I cant go forward and I cant reverse
Dont know which one is really worse
Tried the quacks and the clerics too
But nothing will open the door to you

Thats what I am just the hollow man
Living each day the best as I can
Empty and bare, alone and cold
Nothing to live for no-one to hold
Thats why they call me the hollowman
Drugged up or drunk whenever I can
Hoping they'd help but only you can
So I remain the hollowman

So now as I write these very words
The situation seems to me me absurd
Granted it was my fault for sure
But must I be hollow evermore?

I pick up the knife to end it all
My mind made up for bloddy sure
But then I see that I wont suceed
After all hollow men dont bleed
Thats what I am just the hollow man
Living each day the best as I can
Empty and bare, alone and cold
Nothing to live for no-one to hold



So I've found a place in my head not real
In such a place i dont have to feel
Dont have to lead donT have to follow
Nor even think in this space so hollow

Still have the drugs and the drink of course
I know they've been such a poisoned source
Poisoning my mind they made me do
The very things I did to lose you
Thats why they call me the hollowman
Drugged up or drunk whenever I can
Hoping they'd help but only you can
So I remain the hollowman


Why don't you hear me what I say is true
I tried to tell you what the posins do
But you wouldnt listen to a word I said
Its not the booze nor the drugs you said ...........


Thats why they call you the hollowman
Drugged up or drunk whenever you can
Hoping they'd help but only you can
thats why you'll remain the hollowman
you're Not strong enough to ever change
Don't shake your head it doesnt sound strange
Think on this and try to understand
Its only your choice to be the hollowman


Thats what I am just the hollow man
Living each day the best as I can
Empty and bare, alone and cold
Nothing to live for no-one to hold
Thats why they call me the hollowman
Drugged up or drunk whenever I can
Hoping they'd help but only you can
So I remain the hollowman
