White Shadow Lyrics

Ten coaches roll into the dust
Chrome windows turned to rust
'Hand on inside they know they must
Hanging on the green backed words "In God we trust"

No one knew if the spirit died
All wrapped to go like Kentucky Fried
Tring to read the flight of birds
Low on fuel, getting low on words

and she comes out like a white shadow
she comes out like a white shadow

Each one drawn to empty spaces
Outsiders, borderline cases
It's hard to tell black from white
When you wake up in the middle of the night

Weighed down by the absence of sound
Broken now by the cry of a hound
Looking for movement withing the haze
Light can be deceptive with her rays

and she comes out like a white sadow
and she comes out like a white shadow
she comes out like a white shadow

Dear Mr. Gabriel:

Please go back in time and hit your past self upside the head with a rhyming dictionary. "Kentucky Fried" should never be used as a rhyme outside of godawful American Country-and-Western songs. There's better poetic rhymes, like "lied" or "cried" or "hide". Maybe even "wide." But not "Kentucky Fried." That just ruins it.

--Much love, Professor Know-It-All

Dear Professor,

@ProfessorKnowItAll Sorry. That rhyme makes the song a brilliant searing indictment of the complete and total failure of the American Dream.
