Hi there! I have done something I consider myself smart for. I have really been looking for the lyrics to the song My Hollow Shell by Swedish heavy metal band Corroded, which I did a review of back in 2012 ( which you can read HERE). I was annoyed that the lyrics to this song was not published anywhere, and it seems as if there are many of you out there that searches for these lyrics. My review of the song is actually 6th if you search on google for “my hollow shell corroded lyrics”.
Now, however, the smart thing I did, was that I bought the album the song is on, and because of that, got the lyrics in the CD booklet. I am now giving them to you. ( I took the liberty to correct a grammatical error in the lyrics, though, as I am pretty sure that they mean “lose” instead of what they wrote: “loose”, in the refrain).

Here are the official lyrics for the song My Hollow Shell by Corroded, off the album Exit to Transfer (2010):
My personal decay, further, faster longer gone
Killing my mind for it to leave me in peace
Once with eyes of clarity, shrouded in a veil
Yearning for relief that is nowhere to be found 

I don’t want to be so broken
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Nothing left, nothing to repair
I don’t want to be so broken
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Alone in my hollow shell

A sense of purpose left, since long gone lost
Treading on glass in the minefield of my brain
Hollow thoughts where once a mind was found
Screaming at the ghosts whom are long gone now

(Guitar Solo)

I don’t want to be so broken 
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Nothing left, nothing to repair
I don’t want to be so broken
I don’t want to be, so scarred beyond belief
There is nothing left to lose, but I’m bound to try
Alone in my hollow shell.

I hope you will enjoy the song more with the knowledge of what they actually are singing. I know I feel a sense of relief for it. They are dark and sore, which fits the song perfectly, and as metal should sound. Don’t have much else to say, but I really hope you appreciated this post, and I hope you will read my review as well.

Hi there! After much stress with studying for exams and the exams themselves, and a little breathing room for me, I will now blog about one of the many songs I’ve grown very excited abut the past year. This one is called Now We Die, by Machine Head, which I’ve grown to love more and more, off their latest album Bloodstone & Diamonds; published last fall (2014), first as the second single off the album. The awesome lyrics you will find here. Listen and enjoy.

This is for me a very passionate song, and the album altogether is very passionate, with awe-inspiring lyrics, and musical tunes that will blow your mind. This is one of those songs that make the album. The intro is beautiful, strings fading in and growing stronger, into Rob Flynns muffled screams “And with this now we die”, and haunting the song throughout. The band jumps in, and suddenly everything is heavy as hell.
The verses are heavy, but the refrains are somewhat more mellow, where the strings comes in again with the same sweet melody. The lyrics in the refrain is also more poetic, along with the bridge. It’s big, and it’s beautiful.
This is also the song where the album title is from, in the second verse. Their guitar solos are as sharp and skilled as ever, with great finesse. I’m just throwing out big words to not overuse the word that actually describes my thoughts on this: awesome. But seriously, the string-piece and the solo gave me chills. They STILL give me chills, and the bridge is also wonderful, both lyric-wise and musically. The music video is very bizarre to me, with many elements, and much color and imagery.
This song in it’s entirety is strongly written and performed. There’s a reason why I waited to do this review; I really wanted to take the time to write every thought on this song, because I think it’s THAT spectacular.

“Cast off the shackles of the past
Live in the moment nothing ever lasts
Now cross the bridge of sighs
And with this now we die”

“The damned are we abused and beat,
We’re left for dead, we raise our head
For we are strong, and they are wrong
So scream with me: ‘I do believe'”

(Now We Die – Machine Head)
