Graven Image

What, just what is in your heart?
No one’s there to answer smart
The hollow image I schemed
Filling it up with my dreams

The idol of could be, seems
Finally choking to scream
What, just what is in your mouth?
Is there one in there yet here?

Speak to me lay aside fear
Echoes of my voice ring clear
What, just what am I saying then?
Hollow, hollow is how…low
