Story behind the song
living in a world within obscurity, in the shadows... Finally realizing that its not so bad, but there can be no shadows to hide in with out the light, without the flame..
Lyrics
"Shades of Grey" Into 8 bars Verse Scattered faces… In the breeze I fall to my knees, And I pray For some kind of meaning A world, Void of color Void of feeling, Void of meaning Still I’m kneeling Still I’m Praying For the answer For sanity, for clarity Just….. Some kind of meaning Hook The Flame Misses me There is no light On me, in shadow It cries my name Shades of grey Monochrome Shades of grey Guitar Lead 4 bars Verse come in with strings Just to preserve some sanity I take another drink Another glass of creativity It’s impossible to think (without it) Extinguish the flame And I die without the light There is no shadow, Shades of grey Caught in the burning where’s the night? Bridge You can’t feel me…. You can’t touch me… Hear me… See me, and I burn I am a shadow Void of color…Void of sin And I slip again… Into darkness Shadow cries my name 4 Bars slow guitar and ad libs Hook with slow Guitar part in breakdown The Flame Misses me There is no light On me, in shadow It cries my name Shades of grey Monochrome Shades of grey Hook Guitar lead and ad lib shades of grey til end The Flame Misses me There is no light On me, in shadow It cries my name Shades of grey Monochrome Shades of grey I don't know... its like no one really gets it... gets me like I'm in the shadows.... hidden ... alone... the light, where everyone else hides.... seems so alien... and they are hiding.... hiding from the darkness... their own darkness I know that without the light there are no shadows so I guess in some way, I need the light I must embrace it I'm not crazy... really, in fact my acknowledgement that so many living in that world of light are actually the unsure, the insecure, the lost.... all the while pretending their fear of the darkness justify s their actions actions that are so much worse than the darkness they blame it on their security is a false reality I'm real I cant pretend I know who I am what I am I am a shadow
