"Follow The Hollow" as written by Peter Leo Rickard Wichers and Bjoern Strid....
I fought the forces that will bring me down
They crawl without a sound
They wake me up at night, kill the lights, make it right
No time for slumber I'm getting dumber every sigh,
Every time I'm standing tall, every time I rise and fall

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm way behind, I'm so sincere
I believe you'll never find.

Wee out the sun, under the gun
Kneel down for the ricochet
My future tells no lies to a creature with o rights
As for the plans I have in mind I have nothing left to find
Please show a sign, who's next in line?

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm all denied faith fucked believer
I claim you'll never find a better fear

[Chorus]
Take a look, take a ride, stay by my side
Don't dare to think-let's follow the hollow
It kills your pride to be alive
Please step a side, cause I follow the hollow!

We head for hell and we do it well, come eat the dust
Cause it's all a dirty lie that chokes the sky

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm way behind, I'm so sincere
I believe you'll never find a better fear

[Chorus]

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm all denied faith fucked believer
I claim you'll never find a better fear

[Chorus]

    General Commenti read in a review of natural born chaos that this song is about conformity. i guess it is, looks like it.

    General CommentLove this song, best album on 'Natural Born Chaos' by far. Lyrics are damn cool as well, damn, I mean this is the first song on the album and yet the rest of album is nowhere as heavy as this, why?!!!! Heh, well, its a great song though, maybe the album isn't as good in my opinion as others because they worked with Devin Townsend :-\ LoL, not that I hate him, but mayeb he makes things a bit too smooth, ah well. This song rocks.

    General CommentThis is not the heaviest song on the album [I'd say thats either Blackstar deceiver,NBC or Mercury Shadow] but it is a great way to open.It has a super thick bass thud too,which is always good.

    General CommentThe title, Follow the Hollow, pretty much says everything. This song is about following the sheep-herd and being as indifferent as other people as possible. Don't dare to think differently - just agree with the pack.

    General CommentI don't know what Varulf is talking about but he sure sounds convincing! (and im sure hes older than 12!!)
    My perspective:
    Awesome song with the coolest beginning in the history of cool beginnings
