SHADOWLAND

 

And just like that, the sky went black

The sun fell into the Cumberland Gap

People sayin’ it’ll never come back

We might be on our own

 

Here in the afterlight   

It’s gettin’ hard to tell the truth from a lie

Many days I’m mystified

And I know I’m not alone

 

Things settled, coming back again

In the shadowland, in the shadowland

So pour your light on everyone you can

In the shadowland, into the shadowland

 

The trumpet’s summoning us again

Thought we had turned a corner, and then

Along comes a mirror man

We’ve seen this guy before

 

Peddling in fear and hate

A lot of people have taken the bait  

But there’s a world out there to illuminate

Well, what are you waiting for?

 

Things settled, coming back again

In the shadowland, in the shadowland

So pour your light on everyone you can

In the shadowland, into the shadowland

 

Some will bow their heads and cry

Some will kneel and some will ask why

Everybody’s just tryna get by

And we’ve all got different ways

 

Looking out at the great divide

That can seem so deep and so wide

Every valley’s got another side

We’ll make it there some day

Yeah, we’ll make it there some day

 

Things settled, coming back again

In the shadowland, in the shadowland

So pour your light on everyone you can

In the shadowland, into the shadowland
