Lyrics

Empty Inside 4

I'm so cold, I kept putting you on hold
When you just want a human being
Stayin' with you is too much for me to do
'Cause I'm hardwired to split the scene

I built this home out of testosterone
And you're high on your estrogen
You want to make believe I'm anyone but me
But I just couldn't give a damn

We deserve so much better than this
Ain't nobody should be living like this
[...]
[...] empty inside
Empty inside
There's no where to run or hide

Joan Didion is a little removed
'Cause writers have to live in their heads
It's all about me and Calliope
And you're the Ethiopian kid

You got flies on your belly and you can't even cry
Is this all there is to my life?
Like a gift-wrapped box looks so pretty at first
But then you find it's empty inside (it's empty inside)

We deserve so much better than this
Ain't nobody should be living like this
[...]
[...]
I'm empty inside
There's nothing to say
There's nowhere to hide
No, I'm empty inside
Empty inside
[...]

Empty Inside 5

I'm so cold, I keep putting you on hold
When you just want a human being
Livin' with you is too much for me to do
'Cause I'm hardwired to split the scene

I built this home with my testosterone
And you're still huffin' estrogen
You wanna make believe that I'm anyone but me
But I just couldn't give a damn

I give you all that I can give
But love will never cross these lips
You deserve better than this
'Cause when I see you cry
I'm empty inside

Like Joan Didion I'm a little removed
'Cause artists gotta live in their heads
Yeah, it's all about me and Calliope
And you're an Ethiopian kid

Flies on your belly and you can't even cry
Is this all there is to your life?
Like a gift-wrapped box looks so pretty at first
But then you find it's empty inside (it's empty inside)

I give you all that I can give
But words of love won't cross these lips
You deserve better than this
'Cause when I see you cry
I'm empty inside
I can't lie
I'm empty inside
(No matter how I try)

When I see you cry
I'm empty inside
And I can't lie
I'm empty inside
No matter how I try
I'm empty inside

Empty Inside 6

I'm so cold, I keep putting you on hold
When you just need a human being
Livin' with you is too much for me to do
'Cause I'm hardwired to split the scene

I built this home out of testosterone
And you're stuck on your estrogen
You want to make believe I'm anyone but me
But I just couldn't give a damn

I give you all a boy could give
But love will never cross these lips
You deserve better than this
But when I see you cry
I'm empty inside
I'm empty inside
I'm empty inside

Like Joan Didion I'm a little removed
'Cause artists gotta live in their heads
Yeah, it's all about me and Calliope

Like a gift-wrapped box looks so pretty at first
But then you find it's empty inside (it's empty inside)

I'll give you all a boy could give
But love will never cross these lips
You deserve better than this
'Cause when I see you cry
I'm empty inside
I can't lie
I'm empty inside

When I see you cry
I'm empty inside
And I can't lie
I'm empty inside
No matter how I try
I'm empty inside
