The Shadow Of His Former Self
LYRICS...
The Shadow of his former self
Stepped into the room one day
The traffic shimmered in the wind outside
As the cloudlights moved away

These are the calling cards
This is no way to go
Here is the broken lock
Here comes the undertow

This is some breaking branch
Of intersecting lives
This is the spoken work
Some critical design

And the shadow of his former self
Turned toward the walls
He read everything he'd ever seen
And smiled across it all

Here lie forgotten things
The crackling of lives
Some elemental fall
Some switch to pull a tide

Here is the walking fog
That accidental crash
No stolen anecdotes
No sentimental facts

So the shadow of his former self
Switched on the radio
As the traffic moved along outside
He turned and closed the door
