lyrics

Hollow man, how did you get so shallow?
Do you ever wonder what it's gonna take to break that spell

Between the bricks you hide all your secrets
But the walls, they tell me everything
Though they have no more space to keep it
Though they have no more space to keep it

Ivy like veins wrap your mast, a feign
Your lies are a light to your disguise

So keep them close, real close
So keep them close, real close

Little one, answer me this:
How did you build your walls so high
Does it make you feel big?
Locked away, you're masked by charm

Between your teeth escapes all your secrets
Cavities can't hide among the white
Though you have no more eyes to see it
No, you have no more eyes to see it

Ivy like veins wrap your mast, a feign
Your lies are a light to your disguise

So keep them close, real close
So keep them close, real close

Light spills, Light fills in dark space
If you could only see your face
(hide your face)
Woah-oah Woah-oah Woah

Deceit is stacking bricks below
Forever vines are growing Skyward

So keep them close, real close
So keep them close, real close

Light spills, Light fills in dark space
If you could only see your face
(hide your face)
Woah-oah Woah-oah Woah

Look around you all the walls have caved in
Look around, you are alone
You are alone
