Don’t Tempt The Shadow

 

Don’t tempt the shadow

Heavy like a black cloak

It’s a weighty and illusive veil

I can’t see you if shadows will consume

They don’t shelter from the beating hail

Just icy little bullets

Melting and moving

You cower and you don’t prevail

Nothing but a shadow

See how it hangs low

You’re bigger than the lightless shape

 

Baby would you come on home

Watching it turn into stone

As if by magic

But darling it is tragic

Knowing how you think you’ve flown

Uprooted by this empty oath

There is nothing in the wings you’ve sewn

You say they’re solid like the skin and bone

 

Don’t tempt the shadow

Playing like an actor

It’s a method but it eats away

It used to dance around you

But now it found you

Illusion darkens up your face

See how it runs

Burying the crux

I will not believe you’ve changed 

I’m wary of the shadow

See how it hangs low

They keep you in a distant shade

 

Baby would you come on home

Watching it turn into stone

As if by magic

But darling it is tragic

Knowing how you think you’ve flown

Uprooted by this empty oath

There is nothing in the wings you’ve sewn

You say they’re solid like the skin and bone
