"Touched Something's Hollow" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
Why am I so damaged girl
Why am I such poisoned goods
I don't know how long I can hold on
If it's gonna be like this forever

Why am I so damaged
Why am I so troubled girl
I don't know how long I can hold on
If it's gonna be like this forever

    General CommentWow, really? It's so simple and honest, an element we hardly see in Barnes's work anymore. I love it.

    General CommentI agree, it's not the most fun, dancy song to listen to on the album. Still, it is important reflection on Barnes. Personally, I think Barnes use of his voice really makes this song a great simple song.

    General Commentthis is my favorite song on the new album.
    as far as meaning goes, it's probably about Kevin Barnes being torn about his alter ego Georgie Fruit. i'm willing to bet he wrote this song soon after the songs on Icons Abstract Thee

    General CommentI absolutely LOVE how at the song ends with the very plodding piano, Barnes singing, "I don't know how long I can hold on / If it's gonna' be like this forever...", and then it moves right into the frenetic, optimistic trumpets of An Eluardian Instance. Musically, it says that when one feels that way, they simply have to wait it out and things will change.
    The truth of life is chaotic, Dionysian proteanism.
