shadow people
What's in their head
in the car next to you when the light turns red
Could be thinking of love
might be thinking of hate.
I guess it pretty much could go either way
shadow people in shadow land
That one's thinking of great art
and eloquent words
That one strapped on a gun and joined up with the herd.
That one's saving up water,
got some food stored away
For the war that is coming on the judgement day
Shadow people in shadow land
and this one carries a gun
for the U.S.A.
He's a 21st century man.
and he's scary as hell,
cuz when he's afraid,
he'll destroy anything he don't understand.
well I ain't on the left
and I ain't on the right
I ain't even sure, I got a dog in this fight.
In my time of need, in my time of grief,
I feel like a shadows falling over me
like shadow people in shadow land
Shadow people in shadow land
Shadow people and shadow land.
waiting for the sun
to be straight over head,
til we ain't got no shadow at all.
