"in her shadow" as written by and John Murphy....
She is at the end chasing her own fading light
Running from her shadow in the name of living
Searched for worth in the lust of men
Paid in blood in different beds

Mistaking sex for true love
They never meant a thing
Her addiction brought her a world
Of coward boys and of cheater girls

Looking for an easy way out of being ordinary
So she boarded their sinking ship
And crossed their red needle sea
Drowning truth to live her lie

That she was ordinary
In her fading shadow

    General CommentGreat kind of "interlude" song... it kind of calms you down before 'Eagles Become Vultures' rips your face off.

    General CommentAmazing lyrics. Jake just nails it, lyrically and vocally. The instrumental part is also top-notch. A good song that slows the breakneck pace of the album, then it goes back to pounding your head inside out.
