Rusty Cage – Hollow Men Lyrics

Play this song

I walked along the no mans road
When they sent me down the line
I wandered ’round from town to town
Just another roving sign
I’ve seen the faces passing by
Avoid my eyes of shame
A fire’s hatred for nothing is sacred
I will make them feel my pain

But for all the time it takes
For the hollow men to cave
Nothing can be done
No one will be saved
By and by

They’re laughing around me
The vile surrounds me
I’ll be dancing when they lower them down
They mock us with kindness
The weak and the mindless
Keep my eyes focused on the ground

I see the joy they all display
And wish it all away
I pray the brightness in their eyes
Replaces all with grey

But for all the time it takes
For the hollow men to cave
Nothing can be done
No one will be saved
By and by

For the lost and depraved
And uncleaned and unshaved
And unnamed and forgotten
Unwanted and rotten
Our day will come when glory calls
When all of those fulfilled will fall

But all the time it takes
For the hollow men to cave
Nothing can be done
No one will be saved
