Verse 1

A stranger intersects my path,

A stranger who's wearing my face.

Bad omen, would you look at that?

A messenger of the darkness.

Pre chorus

"Don't go that way,

Don't go that way,

You'll never find the strength to crawl back.

Don't go that way,

Don't go that way,

Just a few minutes till the ground cracks."

Chorus

But why will I ever listen to my shadow self?

And all the lights go out till even my shadow pales.

You're not real, this I know,

A reflection, a clone, a shadow,

You better let me go.

Verse 2

It follows me in my dark dreams,

It follows orders from a dark Lord,

Bad omen, my broken heart screams,

Break its bond with me, cut the chord!

Pre chorus

Leave me alone,

Leave me alone,

I must make my own choices and learn.

Leave me alone,

Leave me alone,

Lift your mist so I can see me burn.

Chorus

Cause why will I ever listen to my shadow self?

And all the lights go out till even my shadow pales.

You're not real, this I know,

A reflection, a clone, a shadow,

You better let me go.

Bridge

It's so hard to face myself.

But you're not the real me now, are you?

Don't care if you wanna help.

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.

Chorus

Cause why will I ever listen to my shadow self?

And all the lights go out till even my shadow pales.

You're not real, this I know,

A reflection, a clone, a shadow,

You better let me go.

You're not real, this I know,

A reflection, a clone, a shadow,

You better let me go.
