shadow men, gathering storm

Shadowmen

We were chasing a dream
And the sky was our weapon
To be heard and never seen
And your faith was the question.

You'd better run
You'd better run
You'd better run

You'd better run
You'd better run
You'd better run

To catch the early morning sun
The day is dawning - is your work done?

We were lost to the breeze
Blowing over your memory
Now but a whisper in the trees
Where you stand is our history.

Still they stand aside
Still they stand aside
For the Shadowmen
For the Shadowmen.

We are echoes throughout time
Darker than night, brighter than day
A frozen wasteland left behind
You are subjects in our shadow play.

You'd better run
You'd better run
You'd better run

You'd better run
You'd better run
You'd better run

The sun is blinding your eyes
A storm gathers on the horizon.
