The Hollow World

All that you invest is what may be won
it's just an echo coming back
and yet we hang in helpless wait
the hollow world rings on and on

Who can answer what you do not ask
low odds of someone calling out
just at the moment you need them to
the hollow world rings on and on

Those pretty faces, so carefully curated
those galleries of happinesses waiting
changeless irrespective of your feeling
the hollow world rings on and on

Waiting by the phone is one thing
but beating yourself up 
in the hall of mirrors 
is a whole thing other
All the fun of the fair 
waiting for the loving hands 
to hold you on some lonely quiet evening

In the hollow world you wallow on and on
peering helplessly, always wondering
and waiting, waiting
where is that calming hand of friendship
