Hollow Eyes

This song is by Phantom Limb and appears on the album The Pines (2012).

Lay back and stare
Into my hollow eyes
Distracted by the future
How you left me stupefied

And that old town clock's chiming
The hours as they play
Games with my revelation
That is wasting me away

Agape at the wonder
Blind on my knees
Stupid for wanting
Fearful to be free

No I don't want
Love to belay
But arrest the provocation
Before what's left is blown away

Yet some pride in these withering bones
Fortitude when you cry
If I'm alone forever
I'll be the reason why

And I won't feel sorry for myself
I won't have the time
You and me was everything
But everything ain't all right
