"Empty Spaces" as written by and Carl William Bell....
Mister, could you maybe lend a hand
To help a drowning, starving, soulless man?
Whose eyes are blind and feelings all but numb
Whose ears are also deaf and mouth is dumb

This is the way, is the way
I fill your spaces now
It's the way, it's the way
Cause all that's been left for me
Is to fight to fill these empty spaces now

Nigh t is day and day is night again
And all that's eating bites with toothy grins
The pages of my memory torn in twain
Where reconstructing lies could not contain

This is the way, is the way
I fill your spaces now
It's the way, it's the way
Cause all that's been left for me
Is to fight to fill these empty spaces now

    General Commentthis starving, souless man has nothing to do but fill the spaces of others, and he's no living a life for himself, his only purpose or "way" is to fill the spaces for others

    General Commenti love this song, i love 2 drive with it blasting!! everyone is so blind, they are all out for themselves. life sucks, it hurts and you have 2 fight to survive, and often times you are left with empty spaces. i just love this song, it doesn't give you any ideas how 2 fill the spaces, but it reminds me 2 keep my head up and that everyone has their own "empty spaces"

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that ended badly. With it over he finds himself lost and resorts to drugs or alcohol to fill "her" spaces.
