"Holes" as written by John Paul White and Gregory Becker....
There's three in the wall from those pictures in the closet
Two in the bedroom from that night I lost it
One deep inside me determined to stay
They don't get any bigger but they don't go away

Holes in and around me I keep falling back into
Holes digging its around me
God knows what I'm gonna do
To fill in these holes left by you
Left by you

I pour drink after drink but nothing hit bottom
I've been on my knees admitted my problem
The love that we made still barely an echo
I'll try anything in these vacant hollow

Holes in and around me I keep falling back into
Holes digging its around me
God knows what I'm gonna do
To fill in these holes left by you
Left by you

There's two through my hands and one through my feet
From this cross that I bear until the day that I see

    General CommentThis song bothers me for one thing. In the lines "There's two through my hands and one through my feet/
    From this cross that I bare to the day that I see" - it seems to me that he's comparing his guilt and shame (that he well deserved after treating this girl poorly) to crucifiction. And he realizes that the guilt he has comes from his unwise actions. It seems like he is comparing his sorrow of losing this girl (which was his fault as he realizes) to crucifiction. It is a disturbing analogy- if my theory is correct.

    General CommentFromtheFifties, I think this song is about a relationship that went bad, he loved her so much and she left him, andnow there are holes from pictures punching the wall and a hole in his broken heart that won't go away. becasue he has such a deep love for her.
