"Holes" as written by and Derek Gledhill Ryan Martin....
I've been through everything I've seen,
Religions and beliefs.
Nothing's ever really held.
I'll try drugs until I die.
Breaking other's lives,
Until I really find myself.

And all these people think they know
What's missing from my show.
Just admit that Jesus died for me.
Take your bibles and go home.
'Cause as I'm walking through this life,
And all the things aren't right.
I don't know how to fill the holes I keep
Falling in along the way.
No matter what they say,
No one has it figured out.

You act like everything is great,
There's nothing out of place.
Well I can see right through the webs you spin.
You're burning up within,
You're tired and you're thin.
You can't believe god let you down.

And all these people think they know
What's missing from my show.
Just admit that Jesus died for me.
Take your bibles and go home.

'Cause as I'm walking through this life,
And all the things aren't right.
I don't know how to fill the holes I keep
Falling in along the way.
No matter what they say,
No one has it figured out.

And as I'm walking through this life,
And all the things aren't right.
I don't know how to fill the holes I keep
Falling in along the way.
No matter what they say,
No one has it figured out.

    General CommentYes, this is a good song.

    First, he is saying that he has tried religion to cure his problems. He is also saying that he will try drugs until he dies, probably because they make him feel better. Next, he talks about how other people are fake. They act like their lives are perfect, when they really aren't and they lose their faith in god because things aren't going well.

    "No one has it figured out." This line speaks the truth.

    General CommentCus' as I'm walking through this life,
    And all the things aren't right.
    I don't know how to fill the holes I keep
    Falling in along the way.
