There's something somewhere scratching silently inside of me
It's always with me somewhere growing- feeding steadily
Without a line from who we are to what we claim to be,
Every time we lose ourselves, we find our destiny

We hurt and kill the ones we love and
Give to charity
and then we, and then we
Smile at those we hate and
Feed on their prosperity
until we, until we

Hate, we hate our Shadows
We hate our Shadows
Don't look back

Beaming through the brightest moment
When there's hell to pay
Sealing up inside ourselves,
We hush it all away
Responding badly to the news that
Everything's okay
So kill ourselves tomorrow just to
Push us through today

We hurt and kill the ones we love and
Give to charity
and then we, and then we
Smile at those we hate and
Feed on their prosperity
until we, until we

Hate, we hate our Shadows
We hate our Shadows
Don't look back

I hate living this way
So why can't we change?
I hate living this way
So why can't we change?
We change forever

Hate, we hate our Shadows
Don't look back (2×)

    General CommentIts pretty obvious. This is about the darkest parts of ourselves, the real monsters, the real monster is you. Your own worst enemy that is yourself. The parts that we try to hide. You cant hide those from the people you love, you love them yet you end up hurting them the most. OUr shadows are things that a lot of people just cant take. They ghide them and they never go away, but become darjer and more dangerous. Its sad when people like this end up blowing up on themselves and their loved ones, dont become like that. Face your greatest enemy.

    General CommentMy absolute favorite song by oftm. I have no idea how to get this album though, you know besides downloading it. Does anyone know if it was actually released or one of those just for download kind of things?
