The lyrics for “Hole in My Heart” are here.
There is an inherent yearning in every human being for something that is greater than themselves; something that transcends their day-to-day existence. You could that that we have a space or a hole inside of us that needs to be filled with something awesome and great. We attempt to satisfy this yearning in a myriad ways: some are constructive, others less so, and some are even harmful to ourselves and others.

In this song, I explore a few examples of the common kinds of things that we pursue to satisfy this yearning: the first being money and status, the second being sexual gratification, and the third being a drug-induced high. I’d like to argue that these are not constructive ways of filling the “hole”; there are better, nobler and more effective ways of achieving happiness and fulfilment as human beings. That’s the point I’m trying to make in this song.
