"Shadows Fall" as written by and James/power Skelly....
Morning comes darkness drops
Upon this day a shadow falls
Silence warps through the halls
Since I've been gone, gone, gone

A hundred years from today
Lamplights ablaze? paves my way
Till Jesus saves my early grave
I will be gone, gone, gone

Drop the anchor lift my heart
From stem to stern I'm torn apart
Mount my horse? pack my cart?
Tomorrow I'm gone, gone, gone

Seek the hull? leave the deck
Silver moon silhouette
In due time you will forget
That I am gone, gone, gone
I will be gone, gone, gone
Since I've been gone, gone, gone
Tomorrow I'm gone, gone, gone

    General CommentI think this song is about some one leaving and sinister things began to happen after that person left.

    The second half of the song is more about someone who is about to leave.

    I dont think this song has any real meaning I think they wrote the lyrics just to match the mood of the song. Still this song is awsome.

    If I were to fall asleep listening to this cd I bet I would dream about being in a boat in the middle of the ocean on a foggy day. The whole CD is one big Sea Shanty

    General Commentto me, this is about a guy feeling like everything the place he's in and everything it used to hold for him has died, so to speak. there is nothing left there for him anymore, so he's leaving at the crack of dawn and not looking back. he knows he'll be forgotten, which is part of why he's leaving in the first place.

    "seek the hull, leave the deck
    silver moon, silhouette
    in due time you will forget
    that I am gone..."

    I've been listening to this song a lot lately, so spooky and yeah, foggy ocean ship sailing imagery which I love. =P
