"Hole To Feed" as written by David Gahan, Christian Eigner and Andrew Phillpott....
We are here, we can love
We share something
I'm sure that you'll mean the world to me
When you get, what you need
It's no way of knowing
What you get is another hole to feed

Your name was the one that was always chosen
Your words and the kindness that set me free
Words can leave you broken inside
You'll have to decide
I'm hanging onto my pride

We are here, we can love
We share something
I'm sure that you'll mean the world to me
The shame as a hole that has kept us frozen
You open my eyes to the world I could believe

This world has left me broken inside
I'll have to decide
I'm hanging onto my pride

Words can leave you broken inside
You'll have to decide
I'm hanging onto my pride

We are here

This world can leave you broken inside
I'll have to decide
I'm hanging onto my pride

We are here, we can love
We share something
I'm sure that you'll mean the world to me
The shame as a hole that has kept us frozen
You open my eyes to the world I could believe

    General CommentWe are here
    We can love
    We share something
    I’m sure
    That you mean the world to me

    Your name was the one that was always chosen
    Your words and the kindness that set me free
    The shame as a hole that has kept us frozen
    You open my eyes to the world I could believe

    And words can leave you broken inside
    You’ll have to decide
    I’m hanging onto my pride

    We are here
    We can love
    We share something
    I’m sure
    That you mean the world to me
    When you get
    What you need
    It’s no way of knowing
    What you’ll have
    Is another hole to feed

    The games that we played
    Have left us hoping
    The gift that we've had
    The life that we breathe

    This world can leave you broken inside
    With nowhere to hide
    I’m hanging onto my pride

    We are here
    We`ve been chosen
    We`ve been blest
    With the place we need to find in and open

    We are here
    We can love
    We share something
    I’m sure
    That you mean the world to me
    When you get
    What you need
    It’s no way of knowing
    What you’ll have
    Is another hole to feed

    General CommentGahan describes the song as "about wanting to fill a gaping hole but not knowing what to fill it with, about sometimes the idea of having a hole to feed all being a figment of my imagination when I'm actually fine." Sounds like half the people I know.

    General Commenti like the line"I’m sure
    That you mean the world to me" as if he's questioning the relationship

    General CommentI found thd tonight and it's been on loop for a while now. It seems to be the breakdown on some form of D/s relationship, then again there is a LOT of me in this song.
