Something's approaching the shadows of night,
but I have no time to stand up and fight.
I walk through the streets with no thoughts on my mind,
but something's approaching that's not hard to find.


It comes from the minds of those that see black,
but once turned away it never comes back.
What is it now, the stories I hear?
Or is it something else, brought out of fear?

It's never the thoughts of those that stand by,
instead it's the thoughts of those that pass by.
They are the ones that never did care,
but likely would leave you just standing there.

I can't put together the puzzle of life
I've got to find something worth my sacrifice.
No one knows what it's like to be me,
and we'll never know what our shadows can see.

Kicking up dust everywhere that I walk,
I can't stay on my feet.
Not looking for pride, I have nothing to hide
Your stride won't fit with me.

I don't understand why I live this way.
I've got to push myself to the edge
looking for light, but the sun won't shine
Now I'm standing on the edge of the line.

Fighting to believe, can't you give me some trust?
Don't you know that's what I need?
Hoping I'll shine not turn into rust,
your pride turns into greed.

Tearing down the walls that were built within,
running from the dark of the night.
People always stare, but I don't care
and the shadow remains inside.

I can't put together the puzzle of life
I've got to find something worth my sacrifice.
No one knows what it's like to be me,
and we'll never know what our shadows can see.
