lyrics

Shut me up tight inside my room
Take my belt and shoelaces from me
Hear the plumbing inside the walls singing
their hollow melody

Seat belt is securely fastened now
Stewardess one more drink for me
Turn the knob and hear the stuffy air sing
its hollow melody

I used to remember everything
I had names for all her teeth
I'm trying to recall our song but
all I hear is a hollow melody

Waiting for the ransom to arrive
underneath the flood lights in the street
It seems they're trying to tell me something
but all I hear is a hollow melody

As far away as my poor feet could run
Making my new home inside a tree
The wind is breathing through the leaves and
it sounds to me like a hollow melody

I used to remember everything
Now that tandem bike's for sale
I'm trying to recall our song but
All I hear is a hollow melody

First it was innocuous
Then it was mysterious
Now it's ubiquitous
and it's all I know

Everybody shouting everything
Pious people spitting when they speak
Now your tongue's in a sling and
you sound to me like a hollow melody

Fighting words, pull quotes, punditry
Black and white and red all over me
Can't believe a single thing
cause you sound to me like a hollow melody
