“Hide our love away
From the evil we both know
It can see us through these dark, dark days.
‘Til it lights the way back home.”

hollowed out to fit their rifles.
Bury me in honor
when I’m dead and hit the ground.
If you love me, let me know.”

“Now we have what we have become
Now you fight to ease your pain
Now you know it’s not the way out”
- Hollow - Pantera
”He’s as hollow as I alone
A shell of my friend,
Just flesh and bone.”
- Jamileh - John Bilezikjian
[“Jamileh”, or “beautiful”. Traditionally a song of praise of
or longing over a beautiful woman, it has also been used
in mourning over the loss of something beautiful.]
- A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
"He said, ‘I’m gonna buy this place and burn it down.
I’m gonna put it six feet underground.’
He said, ‘I’m gonna buy this place and watch it fall.
Stand here besides me baby in the crumbling walls.’ “
- One - Metallica
"Now that the war is through with me,
I’m waking up, I cannot see
That there is not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain, now.”
- Hollow - Submersed
the breath you didn’t make
What’s left, you did forsake
Lift me up, my soul’s so hollow.”
- Rafiki Mourns - The Lion King Broadway Soundtrack
Madi ao [Spilled blood]
Leke sebete chia ho oele sebatha [Try courage so the beasts may fall]
Mo leka geme o tsaba hoa [Those who defy mountains are, in truth, cowards]
Lebo haleng ha o bue ka le ha [Even in anger, you do not speak out against wrong…]
- Kingdom Come - The Civil Wars
"Run, run, run away
Buy yourself another day
A cold wind’s whispering secrets in your ear
so low only you can hear.”
"If alchemists are meant to protect the people, then why are we killing them?"
