'Shadows'

Shadows is a song about how we strive to fit in and reject what's incorrect.

Is it better to be quiet or to talk openly about our vulnerabilities and our incorrect nature and views? Do we create an audience for ourselves online of likeminded people banding together to no longer tolerate people that don’t have this like-mindedness?. This song says we stand behind each other when we share the same views but when someone has a different view do we stand by them then?

Shadows
Lyrics

Verse 01
Lead me back to the day when things were more reliable
Trends undeniable
Friends that weren’t backing my rival
Back when I never stressed my survival
What happened to faith? It’s not just for the bible
Now if I wanna wet my feet It’s either in or out like it’s tidal
For or against someone is liable
When I just wanna dabble
It’s no longer what I say but it’s how I play scrabble
It’s how it connects, the next man wonders how it’s correct
We debate without the respect
What comes between us is stuff that gets said
If I don’t speak you cant take me to the cleaners
What are you waiting for?
If I slip you’re looking for a place to point your fingers
If we could all relate what’s the cost?
It’s all rock solid
How can I make you move?
When there’s to much weight an you’re not bothered

Chorus
I wanna know why?
We gonna drop like a domino time after time
Why am I alone?
When I step outta line
We just a shadow of each other when the sun gonna shine
I wanna know why?
We gonna drop like a domino time after time
Why am I alone?
When I step outta line
We just a shadow of each other when the sun gonna shine

Verse 02

My perspective, am I for or against?
Where do I get this? Where does it end?
To suggest this is ignorance
Stand up or lie down
It’s you or me and we gonna find out
Then you go and leave
Am I fine now?
Am I ok? Mentally well?
When you go away and I question myself
Is life more than just a lesson itself
Do I have to get taught about every step that I walk
Breath that I breath
Every thought some subject I believe
I’m not committed, I object I retrieve
There’s so much I’m fed, I don’t wanna feed
I don’t wanna know you, you don’t wanna know me
Request a new friend cause there’s more in the sea
Less about them and more about me
We just a shadow of each other but whose got the lead?

Chorus

I wanna know why?
We gonna drop like a domino time after time
Why am I alone?
When I step outta line
We just a shadow of each other when the sun gonna shine
I wanna know why?
We gonna drop like a domino time after time
Why am I alone?
When I step outta line
We just a shadow of each other when the sun gonna shine
