"Hollow Men" as written by and Justin Nozuka....
I remember, just last spring
Here inside of my memory, I sing
All around me, hollow men
Chilling at the thought of falling in
Oh my lord, oh my lord

Take me over and under her sun cause I won't be coming back
To Fading stars of death kingdom
No I won't be coming back
Oh my lord, running circles with you love

It's so hard for me to think of you
Here in this dead land, full of death
My heart is beating fast, with tenderness

Oh my love, oh my love
Take me over and under her sun cause I won't be coming back
To Fading stars of death kingdom
No I won't be coming back

Oh my lord,
Please Come save, save me from love
Please
Come save me, save me from love
Take me over and under her sun cause I won't be coming back

    General Commentthis song is hauntingly beautiful,
    i think it's about being in love, and seeing people around you afraid to take that jump into love while you yourself are already completely in love with another person. under her sun means he's pretty much infatuated with her, completely under her spell. but there's always something dark around the relationship, as the song mentions death a couple times.
    i dunno, that's my interpretation.

    My InterpretationI personally think this song is about him being afraid to end a relationship with someone who he dearly loves and doesn't want to be hurt. And maybe that he feels he is the only one that understands her and will also feel her pain - connoting that he is the opposite to the 'hollow men' he sings about. People who are afraid to love or people who take advantage of love.

    General CommentI remember reading somewhere that the song was actually his response to the poem " The Hollow Men" by T. S. Eliot after being assigned to read the poem and write about it for a class. The poem itself is associated with post WWI Europe and religion/spirituality.
