Alice In Chains - Hollow Lyrics



Turning in circles, slowing down
Pulling against a closing out
Easy to feed off a weaker thing
Harder to say what I really mean

Hollow as a mountain
All tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain
Crowned with a cold, blue sky

All of your colours turn to grey
Don't even matter anyway
Bleeding impressions where you were tied
Can't really say how you lost your mind

Hollow as a mountain
All tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain
Crowned with a cold

Hollow as a mountain
All tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain
Crowned with a cold, blue sky

Silence
So loud
Silence
I can't tell my up from down

Silence
So loud
Silence
I can't tell my up from down

All of the faces life can show
Withered and ugly the one you know

Hollow as a mountain
All tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain
Crowned with a cold, blue sky

Silence
So loud
Silence
I can't tell my up from down

Silence
So loud
Silence
I can't tell my up from down

  3. Thelema

    2:59 is pure heaven

  4. Jose Delgado

    Jerry Cantrell is definitely one of the best musicians of all times, nothing will ever compare to the voice of Layne Staley, but Duvall is killing it and the new albums are sick. Imagine if Layne was singing these songs

  5. Jennifer Newcomb

    They have had a very successful career and come back and are still rocking I don’t know where it is said that they are no good without Layne and not hating on Layne I’m just glad they came back and some are saying that they didn’t do any killer stuff after Laynes death all of the things that they have done has been great and the sound is different but not terrible and Jerry you are smart to not to try to replace Layne like I said not hating on Layne so guys don’t listen to the haters and Jerry William Mike Sean y’all still sound badass love it I also like the weird videos it’s just cool don’t stop 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤

    What a doomer

  7. satanical redirection

    Playing this while the world blows up.goodbye universe

  8. Djo Fortunato

    Leave it to Jerry and Alice to drop a whole bunch of songs and videos and hardly market at all. Just for fans to discover
    Classic Alice in chains move.
    This time rocks. And this video is creepy af

  9. Kerrie O'Flaherty

    Jeez that rift ..is a gift

  10. Tammy Suhr

    Come to Omaha Nebraska!

  11. Evan Polcsak

    chung we

  12. David Duran

    Alice In Chains has been around for 30+ years! R-E-S-P-E-C-T

  13. Carguy Ryder

    This song hits hard, it helped me keep together while my parents were in the middle of divorce and I was staying with a friend, going to a completely different school where I stayed mute until I moved in with my mom and found a new school, with real genuine people. Alice In Chains, since childhood they’ve been my go to. 🤘🏻

  14. YouTube smokes mid

    Can I listen to rock music on YouTube without snobs bitching in the comments about how music nowadays sucks? I dream of that day.

  15. Stef D'Errico

    listening it after few years I can absolutely say that this is one of the most beautiful AiC songs of the new era. Very easy structure, deep sound and meaning. The video is the cherry on this perfect cake. Love it.

  16. Brandon Hale

    Gotta luv alice an chains.

  17. Vinn Regi

    Holy shit that's one of the heaviest songs ever.
    And no, "heavy" doesn't mean "all settings to max, double bass drums/shredding/solos and guttural/screams throughout the song. That's just loud sound.
    This whole song, from the riffs, the vocals, the lyrics, is spelling doom and despair.

  18. Tavo Sanchez

    Best song and video of 2013

  19. eye_var _blackbeard

    The dual vocal is too good!!

  20. Layne pokhrel

    Toni Iommi feels

  21. Marco Graziani

    This video reminds me a lot the mood of oblivion from mastodon

  22. Hunter Smith

    I feel that there's bits of Danny Boyle's movie Sunshine in this music video.

  23. Bradley Smith

    AIC is the shit!!

  24. wasted/time/traveler

    Alice In Chains one of the greatest band in rock history...every song solid and bad-ass!!

  25. D 18

    Just saw AIC live tonight. They didn’t play hollow 😢

    crepez

    I saw them two weeks ago. Same, so disappointing. No Nutshell either.

  26. Pneumatic Tube

    I wish King's X would get back to this fucking sound, right here!

  27. PazzaTV

    Reminds me of the movie "Moon" from 2009, may have even been inspired by it. Isolation in space. In space, no one can hear you scream.

  28. PazzaTV

    "Silence so loud, silence
    I can't tell my up from down
    Silence so loud, silence
    I can't tell my up from down"


    Brilliant lyrics.

  29. Jefferson Andres Araujo Mendoza

    Heavy metal, it's sludge metal, it's Alice in chains metal!

  30. tuesdayafternoon13

    Cantrell THE Living Legend (gonna see them tomorrow and this is on the setlist!) 😜 my head may fall off

  31. Christopher Sallee

    Industrial toxicity sound love it definitely deep tunes

  32. César Elizondo

    I feel like in the 90s

  33. Scott Turner

    "All of your colors turned to gray dont even matter anyway" somebody truly try to explain this if you can i hope most will never have to experience this psychological horror

    crepez

    I'm living it right now brother.

    Scott Turner

    Sorry bro my god!

  34. Daniele Mussetti

    Brillant.

    she's always hiding her right shoulder, as does him.

  39. Dave Kellar

    Great video

    Dave Kellar

    Likecback in the day aic video

  40. augart89

    I have always loved how Jerry tends to hold certain notes. For example, notice how the final note from the solo starts descending from 4:07 and gets into the verse that starts at 4:14. It sounds like a Komodo Dragon is just waiting to maul my ass (lol). Kidding aside, nuances like these are what identify Jerry´s sound. He may not be the most technical guitar player of his generation, but he has a very recognizable sound, and I think that´s way more worthy of praise in the end.

  41. Deez Nughts

    Old AIC - great songs.
    New AIC - great songs.
    Layne will always be associated and missed, but I'm glad the band didnt fade away forever and is still releasing good music in their own sound and style.

  42. Jefferson Andres Araujo Mendoza

    This is Alice in chains!

  43. Jack Pirelli

    I thought I was going to hear a pantera cover version 😤

  44. Brady Hess

    The woman in the video seems to be driving him nuts. Get rid of the woman, buddy, and you can make it. You can accomplish great things without her holding you back. There are other kicks to be had besides sex. Like fame and fortune. What are you trying to prove? You know you are a man.

  45. Brady Hess

    Roadkill heart inside of me. Fake it til you make it.

    Brian McNamara

    Breath on a Window

    Brady Hess

    @Brian McNamara It was breath on a window in the beginning. Sometimes you have to start at the bottom to prove yourself to God on your way to the top. I don't need to kiss anybody's ass anymore, but some people don't believe that so I let them go in in their delusion.

  46. Arthur Diniz

    Interesting to see the variation of musical genres AIC played through the years. They started with the Glam Metal, got to Hard Rock and then mixed with Heavy Metal, after they recorded acoustic Rock songs and then got to this Doom Metal sound of nowadays. Absolutely amazing, that's why they're my favourite group!

  47. Tracy S

    The bass in this song is beyond heavy......amazing.

  48. Александр Кузьмин

    Incredibly cool song!!!

  49. Some guy on the Internet

    Never forget how lucky we are to still have the legend that is Jerry Cantrell.

  50. Tarek Wayne

    I think I might even like the new Alice in Chains better...

    I'm really blown away, I'm just discovering their new catalogue.

    Yes, I grew up with them in the 90s.

    Somehow when Duval and Cantrell harmonise, they summon Layne.

    Upon listen to this new incarnation and Jerry's solo stuff, it's clear he is the architect behind the AIC sound.

    What a joy to have all this new material to listen to, more so in this day and age❤️

    Addendum: to be clear, I still prefer Layne's voice to William's.

    I think Layne's resonance was more open while Duval's sounds maybe a little nasal or squashed on the higher stuff. I need to check out more before I stand behind that statement.

    However, the sum total of the new line up is producing an absolutely epic sound that for me is the logical evolution of the band.

    The Head Sheep

    I think DuVall sounds like he's singing in a healthier way, but he also doesn't have Layne's power (then again I'd have trouble naming nearly anyone else that does)

  51. Daniel Brown

    This is, thus far, the best AIC song I've heard since our dear Layne passed from this world to another.

    I'm starting to open up to AIC with Duvall at the helm. Took me a while.

    Some guy on the Internet

    Duvall is definitely not at the helm. Jerry is (and always has been).

    Daniel Brown

    @Some guy on the Internet Dude.....you know what I mean. I know JC has been the driving force of the band since day 1. I guess I should've said "With Duvall as frontman"

    .....there!! That better? LOL

  52. Simon Kelly

    Fuckin love this tune

  53. Metal Sharon

    AIC is one of those bands that will never be to old to listen to

  54. Wes Sol

    Alice In Chains till i die

  55. dirk digler

    Reminds me of the TPB cartoon episode where they're growin dope in space haha

  56. Blitzburgh 43

    The devil really did put dinosaurs here. The fallen angels corrupted all life forms, even plants. Which is why the flood took place. A clean start. The giants were known as the nephilim.

  57. Please Do Tell

    MASTERPIECE

  58. Rian Souza

    AIC Never Die

  59. Tony Ferriere

    Isolation is the death of us all like this song betrays

  60. Brady Hess

    I am continually growing and evolving in Jesus. I have no trouble as I glorify Him with all I have.

  61. EliteHunting1911

    Jerry's on a completely different plane sometimes with these songs.

  62. Juan Leiva

    Este es increíble.

  63. Mark Greeno

    I love Layne Staley, but Jerry Cantrell is an amazing guitarist

    Some guy on the Internet

    Jerry Cantrell IS Alice in Chains. Alice can continue without Layne, but Alice could NEVER continue without Jerry.

  64. Seth Wiseman

    This band is underrated asf

  65. BlazeAcora The Reaper

    i did not know that one of there members died damn thats sad

  66. netrioter

    Mr Duvall...you kick ass

  67. Bwerani Watts

    Love AIC.Might this song be about north and south poles.....?

  68. Christopher Sabionski

    I love dill too...

  69. exxor9108

    The feel of this song feels so damn apocalyptic. Like if you were to use it in a video game... it would be for a boss battle that you just can't win. You are destined to lose, to die, and the rest of the world dies with you...

  70. Shannon Crawford

    All Hail Jerry!

  71. frank GFish ferrante

    this is not about an astronaut ... this is the way we are being imprisoned by our own minds here with our melodramatic commenting from behind a pc screen, never to touch the imagination of another again. Now only Bots.

  72. Jordan Inslee

    Alice In Chains is legendary. I’ve been listening to them for 10 years and there songs never get old.

  73. Nick ripley

    What an amazing and deep video I can feel this characters emotions deep love this video words can say enough jerry is in my opinion the most talented front man guitarist composer in the world I truly beleive he has always been the heart and soul of alice in chains

  74. Ashy Hess

    Pretty creepy and cool shot at 5:39

  75. Michael Street

    So excited to see them and Korn this summer. two of my favorite bands. And right before that concert Im gonna go see Ozzy Ozbourne and Megadeath. HELLLLLLLLL YEAHHHHHH

    lyrics:
    [Verse 1]
    Turning in circles, slowing down
    Pulling against a closing out
    Easy to feed off a weaker thing
    Harder to say what I really mean

    [Chorus]
    Hollow as a mountain
    All tunneled and drilled below
    Hollow as a mountain
    Crowned with a cold

    Blue sky

    [Verse 2]
    All of colors turn to grey
    Don't even matter anyway
    Bleeding impressions where you were tied
    Can't really say how I lost your mind

    [Chorus x2]
    Hollow as a mountain
    All tunneled and drilled below
    Hollow as a mountain
    Crowned with a cold

    Blue sky

    [Bridge]
    Silence! So loud! Silence!
    I can't tell my up from down
    Silence! So loud! Silence!
    I can't tell my up from down

    All of the faces life can show
    Withered and ugly, the one you know

    [Chorus]
    Hollow as a mountain
    All tunneled and drilled below
    Hollow as a mountain
    Crowned with a cold

    Blue sky

    [Bridge]
    Silence! So loud! Silence!
    I can't tell my up from down
    Silence! So loud! Silence!
    I can't tell my up from down

  83. Deborah Pennock

    "Easy to feed off a weaker thing" easy for ALICE IN CHAINS to put out another masterpiece

  84. Ryder El Marihuanero

    Jerry is a great guitar player, but we miss Layne 💔
