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.

“Yearning for relief that is nowhere to be found”
