"Hollow Log" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Go where you want to
Do the things you feel
Walk around with a broken leg
And a hundred dollar bill

Get yourself a pistol
Get yourself a dog
Stay up all night gettin' drunk
Sleeping in a hollow log

Walk 'til you're restless
Sleep 'til you're tired
Wake up without thinking
You're the one that I desire

    General CommentI love the irony in the two lines "walk till you're restless" and "sleep 'till you're tired". Makes me laugh every time I hear it. One Foot In the Grave is my favorite Beck album (though this song is on another previous album from 1993). Reminds me of that era when I first went to college. Then in 1996, I'd still listen to One Foot In the Grave, Stereopathetic Soulmanure, and Mellow Gold over and over, and then he came on that live radio show on HFS (Modern Rock Live, I think), where he then played this song, followed by a then-new song, "Regular Song". But basically he was there to plug his new album, Odelay.

    My OpinionThis song a lot reminds me of the book On The Road by Jack Kerouac. Because in the book the main character Sal, went where he wanted to go and he traveled with a few bills in his pocket and slept wherever he wanted to and gallivanted all across America in search of life and adventure.

    General CommentI really love this song.
    "wake up without thinking
    you're the one that I desire"
    That part really is sweet. It remind me of "Totally Confused" Like a simple statement, but one of love. I love Beck, and this song is amazing.
