"In The Shadows" as written by and Adam/phillips Russell....
We both take the hardest punches
And collect black eyes just to prove it
Still we pass by just like strangers
And we speak just like the closest enemies

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far

Somehow my words are rendered useless
Still I pull my lip down to my chest
Just to show you how my jaw is
Tired from waiting to say the things that you should hear (you should hear)

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far

After all we're still the same
These empty promises seem to never change
there's a smile on my face and it's 2:55 AM
and this cramp in my wrist puts me back asleep till it all comes around again

WITH A CLOSED FIST!
WITH A CLOSED FIST!
WITH A CLOSED FIST!
WITH A CLOSED FIST!

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far

Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can fall into the night unscarred
Woah, in the shadows of our life
We can never let it go this far

    somehow my words rendered useless
    Still I pull my lip down to my chest

    and then WITH A CLOSED FIST, not WITH THE CLOSENESS

    General CommentI know exactly what the song means. Its about Ryan *guitarist* and Adam *bassist*. It's a love hate realationship, even though they may beat eachother up and hate eacher at times they would die for eachother, true friends. I KNOW THIS IS WHAT THE SONGS MEANS! THEY SAID IT THEMSELVS! and itz not about godsmack beating them up *te he* and btw none of they're songs are about dieing its metaphoricle and one more thing sum ppl think the lead singer *Dan* writes the lyrics its mostly Ryan. I AM THE MOST AWESOME S.O.T.Y FAN EVER!

    General Commentthe second verse is really wrong---correction:
    Somehow my words are rendered useless
    Still I'll pull my lip down to my chest
    Just to show you how my jaw is:
    Tired of waiting to say the things that you should hear

    anyways this song is awesome, love it when they play this live

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong.
    It's,
    "Somehow my words are rendered useless
    Still I pull my lip down to my chest
    Just to show you how my jaw is
    Tired from waiting to say the things that you should hear"
    NOT: Somehow my wife, rendered useless
    Somehow pulled my lip down to my chest


    And it's,
    "WITH A CLOSED FIST"
    NOT: "WITH THE CLOSENESS"
