Mr. Shadow

Length: 2:49

Mr. Shadow
Ever since you were a boy
You walked the earth in search of every ounce of daylight that you could destroy

And I feel you
When I push people down the stairs
I like the small fleeting power that I feel when I catch them unawares
Oh woah oh!

Dreams come and dreams go
But there’s just one nightmare
It’s the one where all the winds blow
And there’s fiery ash in the air
And Mr. Shadow’s always there
Mr. Shadow’s always there
Oooh Ooh Ooh
Oooh Ooh Ooh

Behind every dark curtain
And every dying tree
He’s in the final breaths you take when you’re drowning in the lake because of me

And he hides
He hides in broad daylight
And if you stare directly into him he’ll surely play a trick upon your sight
Oh woah oh!

Daylight comes and daylight goes
But it’s always dark somewhere
And if you know what the hangman knows
You know that death is everwhere
And Mr. Shadow doesn’t care
Mr. Shadow doesn’t care

Human rights and celebrities can’t do anything to stop him
When he goes to take his bites out of you and me
Oooh Oooh Mr. Shadow
Tell me now is it true
You give us six more weeks of sorrow
When some Punxsutawney dog sees you
