I See You In The Shadows



In the dusk of twilight
In the dawn of day
I see you in the shadows dancing a ballet

In the pack of people
In the soul of one
I see you in the shadows like a hired gun

In the set of nowhere
In the lay of note
I see you in the shadows sailing in a boat

In the mind of fancy
In the vow of fact
I see you in the shadows like a circus act

In the gift of dowry
In the rule of lord
I see you in the shadows giving a reward

In the din of clamor
In the lull of calm
I see you in the shadows like a nipa palm

In the joy of heaven
In the ache of hell
I see you in the shadows leading a gazelle

In the void of ether
In the lot of mass
I see you in the shadows like any morass
