Hollow Living

Ecclesiastes chapter 1, verses 1 and 2
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

That's what The Lord himself said
None of this is gonna matter once you wind up dead
Try to tell me all these fairy tales livin up inside your head
Make your pathway better but it's really mud in which you tread
I'm not bein negative I'm just quotin what I read
It's by our own devices to hell's doorway we are led

Voices around us all
All tellin us we livin good
Not that our living should be clean
Instead we'll just look through a hood
Tie die colored so we don't see
Your view is life misunderstood

Tellin me to make the best of it
Love them through their flaws
Don't you talk that moral code
Or apply those holy laws
You just might go an offend em
And expose the truth about their cause
It's self delusion called complacency
Leading them to deaths cold jaws

Voices around us all
All tellin us we livin good
Not that our living should be clean
Instead we'll just look through a hood
Tie die colored so we don't see
Your view is life misunderstood

I'm not saying that you can't relax
Or dress up lookin nice
Or compliment a situation
When things just roll like dice
Just keep in mind it's all a front
And you will realize
What truly matters that you do and say
Before you're put on ice

Voices around us all
All tellin us we livin good
Not that our living should be clean
Instead we'll just look through a hood
Tie die colored so we don't see
Your view is life misunderstood.
