Opiate For The Masses – Shadows lyrics

There's something somewhere scratching silently inside of me
It's always with me somewhere growing- feeding steadily
Without a line from who we are to what we claim to be,
Every time we lose ourselves, we find our destiny

We hurt and kill the ones we love and
Give to charity
And then we, and then we
Smile at those we hate and
Feed on their prosperity
Until we, until we

Hate, we hate our shadows
We hate our shadows
Don't look back

Beaming through the brightest moment
When there's hell to pay
Sealing up inside ourselves,
We hush it all away
Responding badly to the news that
Everything's Okay
So kill ourselves tomorrow just to
Push us through today

I hate living this way
So why can't we change?
I hate living this way
So why can't we change?
We change forever
