Lyrics to ‘We Are The Shadows’

The Devil took to the bitstream
To extend his hold on power
He created laws and ignited wars from
Machiavelli’s crystal tower

But we are the shadows
Breaking the chains that bind
We are the shadows
Informing the open minds

The scheming words that are whispered
Are all captured in the system
Unknown eyes penetrate the lies
And they sing to those who listen

We are the shadows
Crashing the fairytale
For we are the shadows
Knowing that truth prevails

Lalala La etc

The cut of a million truths
Can stop the killing machine
It’s cloak turned to shredded rags
The nightmare fades to a dream

Instrumental

The Devils took to the bitstream
To extend their hold on power
They created laws and ignited wars from
Machiavelli’s crystal tower

We are the shadows
The checks and the balances
We are the shadows
We know where corruption is

Lalala La etc

The cut of a million truths
Can stop the killing machine
It’s cloak turned to shredded rags
And the nightmare fades to a dream

Lalala La etc end
