"Hollow Eyes" as written by and Ty Tabor....
Another day in Nigeria the children beg for bread,
The crops failed, the well ran dry
When they lost the watershed

A baby dies, its mother cries, the children gather 'round
They're wondering what the day will bring
Will they be the next one found?

(Chorus)
Do you dare to gaze into their hollow eyes, hollow eyes?
Are they staring holes in you with their hollow eyes,
Hollow eyes, hollow eyes?

In the crowded sheds the children lay their heads
To escape the Haitian heat
The hunger pains drive them to the street
Wond'ring if today they'll eat
Some find food in the refuse heap, others find disease
Some find it harder just to live when they can die with ease.

The least of these is hungry.
The least of these is sick.
The least of these needs clothing.
The least of these needs drink.

The least of these knows sorrow.
The least of these knows grief.
The least of these has suffered pain, and Jesus is His name.

(2nd Chorus)
Do you dare to gaze into His hollow eyes, hollow eyes?
Is He staring back at you with His hollow eyes,
Hollow eyes, hollow eyes?

    General CommentThis was one of the best rocking songs on the Beat The System album, and it's about starving children! What can the well-to-do people do about it? There will always be poor people. Every little bit done in the name of Christ counts.
