about

HOLLOW MEN

A more recent song, I used the title of T S Elliot’s chilling poem “The Hollow Men,” because for me it encapsulates the prevailing condition of emptiness so many humans suffer from. The constant search to fill the emptiness inside is what has always led me into trouble of one sort or another!

lyrics

HOLLOW MEN Copyright 2011 C.Blundell

I’ve been learning the ways of the world since the day that I was born
And we all know that the fabric of society is torn
Better than less than you and me us and them
You are wrong I am right you are black and I am white

CHORUS
Let me be at peace not in pieces
Living in my heart and not my head
Instead I could be whole and not hollow
And turn this poison into medicine

If we are all connected like they say if we really are all one
Then everything we do and say moves out from us like ripples in a pond
We could make better choices use our voices
Take some action find our compassion

CHORUS
And we could be at peace not in pieces
Living in our hearts and not our heads
Instead we could be whole and not hollow
And turn this poison into medicine

It’s no use complaining and crying and sighing
If we want to see some changes they can only come from the inside
The inside out

CHORUS
