"Hollow" as written by Salvatore P. Erna, Tony Rombola, James Shannon Larkin and Rob Merrill....
One more step and I could fall away
If it happened would it matter?
And I can't tell if I should go or stay
Same old picture feel so hollow
How can anybody know what's best for me?
Another page I turn in shame
And my decisions brought me to my knees
I needed someone to blame

I feel so hollow
I feel so hollow
Time to do what's best for me I believe I can change

Once upon a time in broken dreams
Reflection's that I can't face
So hold your breath and make a wish for me
Take me to a better place
Time always seems to be passing by
It never waits for me
If I could do it all one more time
I wouldn't change a thing

I feel so hollow (feel so hollow)
I feel so hollow (feel so hollow)
I feel so hollow (feel so hollow)
I feel so hollow (feel so hollow)
Time to do what's best for me I believe I can change

    General CommentKeeebler7, thank you for obvious information.

    On subject:

    Lyrics aren't hard to understand: it's about a person, that has lived a bad life and wants to change - BUT he doesn't regret the past thus he feels empty / hollow.

    Great song though.

    General CommentI find it frustrating when people insist that they KNOW what the true meaning of a song is. Music that is art, both musically and lyrically, is meant to be interpreted. That's the whole idea, there is no one right answer.

    General CommentThe female backing vocals on this track are fuckin creepy, not in a bad way tho. Deff have to say that i had low hopes for IV for the fact that faceless didn't hit me as hard as their self titled and Awake. But I have to say sully keeps it commin with better shit than last.

    Now when i hear this song i get the thought of Dime Bag, And the title of it Hollow just reminds me of Pantera. First thought by the song title it might be a cover. Or possibly a song towards Phil and how he feels about the whole dime situation... i dunno, Maybe its just thinking of pantera and i should go listen to a few albums

    General CommentTo Keeebler7: What the point of dissin someone on a song meaning site? Yeah and what would a shit-stained piece of crap be?

    Okay back on topic, this song is about a guy who's made the wrong decisions his whole life and wants to go back and change, but he's not sorry for what he's done. Basically the same thing punkD said

    General Commentfinally taking responsibility for your own life, your own faults.. that one moment in your life when you realise where you are: alone, in the dark, begging for some sign to keep going, some hope.. it's a very lonely place when you finally look at yourself and know you don't like what you've become.
