"The song 'Hollow Words' is about my experience leaving a highly controlling fundamentalist religion. I was a devout church member and hung on every spoken and written word by its “spiritual” leaders. It was when I was in my 20s when I faced a crossroads in my faith. I struggled with this inner conflict. But it was only years later, and after thousands of hours of research, study and use of critical thinking, I began to see through the church's deception. In that moment, my universe was completely altered. What I thought was this unshakable and resolute foundation just collapsed right under me. Looking back, I recognize that I was systematically fed a constant stream of lies to perpetuate the guilt and fear that psychologically imprisoned me to the church, and the sobering realization that the prime years of my life were wasted. When I left the movement, I was shunned by family and friends. The aftermath was an agonizing period of my life. Creating the melody and lyrics for 'Hollow Words' came very quickly to me - the emotion flowed, and the song emerged.
