Hollow

lyrics

im about two seconds away from a hospital visit
but gotta take a minute to extinguish all of these critics
that be thinking i took my ball and went home,
bitch, i chose isolation and to sit on this dead throne

i'm hollow to the bone, branded with the dark sign
marching alone at the front of the line
this isn't hip hop or horrorcore, this is my fucking life
manic depressive music from a drunken lunatic, it's nothing nice

i don't make mixtapes, and i don't want a record deal
i just want to find something in this world that's fucking real
i bet that i won't, so accept that i don't
give a damn about your plans when my hands around your throat.

i fuck like i hate love, my passion is never lacking
and misery of others is the reason that i'm laughing
thought patterns are a battlefield, my brain is at war
im not just dying on the outside, i'm rotten to the core

i don't know who i became
no more blood is in these veins
i don't even know my name
there is nothing that remains
hollow hollow
hollow hollow
terrified and petrified
i don't ever want to die
but something that is deep inside
has left my soul petrified
hollow hollow
hollow hollow

there is nothing left for me to say, no line for me to spit
it's stan marsh's birthday and everything i see is shit
my cynicism is prison and i'll never break free
only to writing to myself as a reason to keep these

sharp blades away from severing main veins
but like bill murray im stuck living the same days
no groundhog is ending this winter i stay living in
its taking everything i got to stop me from giving in

i don't see the point when there's no end in sight
and beef's the only time i ever really put a fight
every songs about a bitch, i guess this time it's me
cuz im always prying open my brain for everyone to see

this songs another memoir of the broken and defeated
the last moments of my life before i stop breathing
and before it's all over i want you all to know
that you never knew the real me, but it's time to go

i don't know who i became
no more blood is in these veins
i don't even know my name
there is nothing that remains
hollow hollow
hollow hollow
terrified and petrified
i don't ever want to die
but something that is deep inside
has left my soul petrified
hollow hollow
hollow hollow
