Taking on a different life on their own Into a dimension where we can’t recognize A dark and secretive world created in shadows Phantoms walking their paths along the ground Are they the people that we know in the light of day? Or are they ghosts from a world that light found In shadows that bring them life in a different way You see a pair of eyes staring at you from deep within the woods Is it an animal, a person, what exactly is looking back? In shadows, nothing is quite understood That is, the dimension between white and black...
