The Shadow Lyrics

dr jekyll
and mr hyde
a real nice guy with a n-n-n-n-nasty side
in trouble
he tried to hide from himself
good gawd
sad man
couldn't face up to the yin and the yang
all of us got a shadow

who knows what lurks in the hearts of men
the shadow knows
we become what we do not what we pretend

between the intention and the expression
between the emotion and the response
falls the shadow

sometimes i fail to follow through
on things that i want to do
and other times i find myself doing the very things i hate

reverend jimmy
and tammy belle
big time pumpers with a story to sell
wait a minute
their finger's pointin' at you
pay attention
listen up
don't try to deny it or cover it up
all of us got a shadow
