Hollow Hills

This song is by Bauhaus and appears on the album Mask (1981) and on the live album Press The Eject And Give Me The Tape (1982).

Ancient earthwork, fort and barrow
Discreetly hide their secret abodes
The most fearful hide deep inside
And venture not there upon Yuletide

For invasion of their hollow hills
That music hold and Oberon fill
Is surely recommended not
For fear of death, in fear of rot

Hollow hills
Hollow hills
Hollow hills
Hollow hills

Baleful sound and wild voices ignored
Ill luck, disaster - the one reward
Violated sanctity of supermen's hills
So sad (hollow hills)
Love lies there still (hollow hills)

So sad (hollow hills)
So sad (hollow hills)
Hollow hills (hollow hills)
Hollow hills (hollow hills)

Hollow hills
Hollow hills

And witches too, and goblin's too
And speckled sills
Lament, repent
Oh mortal you (oh mortal you)

So sad (hollow hills), so sad
So sad, so sad...
