The book of mankind's brain was written for a thousand times
and must be isolated seen
Research cannot slip inside individuality
or under neuropsychic seals

Now every storm that I breathe
and every curse I pray
can make me see the night
and stronger every day

Shadow I am
And I ever will, and I ever will be
Shadow I am in a world
In a land of shades that forever rains the night on me

When the crows falling down in the neighbourhood
left no mark on the surface of dark

Then every storm that I breathe
and every curse I pray
can let me be the night
and stronger every day

Shadow I am
And I ever will, and I ever will be
Shadow I am in a world
In the land of shades that forever rain sundown on me

Not more than a gun to rule the world
Not more than a license for the fabric of my shade
Climbing out of torches
I left without a mark

Shadow I am
There's a chain reaction
released by the rebound of will and mind
Shadow in my neural world
This chain reaction's magnetism
Let's transform ourselves in each and every kind

Here's my cognition research: what is intelligence?
Shadows are human and not unable to think

    General CommentWhile the previous song focused on 0, this one is narrated mostly from X's point of view. It goes into more depth about what this whole affair has done to 0, turning him into little more than a shadow, and X examines this by entering the 'land of shades.'

    Very good song. I especially like the last two lines.
