I think I have become one of the hollow men
As I shine on the outside more these days
I can feel the outside feeding on my inside
Leaves a growing, darkness in it's place

I think I have become one of the hollow men
I think I have become one of the lonely
Now that everybody talks to me
I feel I have become one of the empty

Hollow men can stop you with the twinkling of an eye
Hollow men can take you without even reaching out
Hollow men have got you long before you realize
The poison paralyzes

I think I have become one of a pair of men
It's a feeling I've been having for some time
I look down upon myself and watch my movements
A blind eye sees the fragile vandalized

Watch this cold world dishing up these endless hollow men
Find us anywhere you look, come and meet our friends
Stand us in our silly clothes, put our batteries in
Line us up like fairground ducks, watch us grin and grin

See the lies behind our eyes
See the will to win
We'll buy you and we'll sell you
But perhaps we'll save your skin

Sit quietly and listen to the breeze
The hollow and the lonely listen too
Sniff the air for something we can use
We're thin hard and we rattle when we're shaken

Songwriters
KELLY, MARK/ROTHERY, STEVE/TREWAVAS, PETER/MOSLEY, IAN
