Ted's Song of the Week - 5/09/06

The Hollow
A Perfect Circle
Mer De Noms

Due to Tool’s recent album release, I’ve spent time listening to a lot of Maynard, which includes his work with A Perfect Circle.

This track came to the forefront of my choices for song of the week, because it has been almost thrust upon me this last weekend. The first instance was at a party. Some guy I had just met immediately began talking Tool/APC with me and mentioned what “The Hollow” represents. I’ll spare the details, but I guess it’s highly sexual. It wouldn’t surprise me. Another APC occasion was yesterday while doing the dishes. Since we lack a washing machine, we spend a fair amount of time cleaning dishes. Therefore, we need background music to keep us entertained. It just so happened that Mer De Noms was the album choice for the cleaning session. Of course, “The Hollow” is the very first track, so apparently there was no escaping this song.

It’s been close to six months since I’ve given this song a listen. However, the subtle barrage of musical situations gave me the proper motivation to give the track the attention it deserves.

A Perfect Circle - The Hollow

Run desire run
Sexual being
Run him like a blade
To and through the heart
No conscience
One Motive
Cater to the hollow

Screaming feed me here
Fill me up again
Temporarily pacify this hungering
So grow
Libido throw
Dominoes of indiscretions down
Falling all around
In cycles
In circles
Constantly consuming
Conquer and devour

Cause it's time to bring the fire down
Bridle all this indiscretion
Long enough to edify
And permanently fill this hollow

Screaming feed me here
Fill me up again
Temporarily pacifying

Feed me here
Fill me up again
Temporarily pacifying
