08. Shadows

Innocence & Instinct (Deluxe Edition)
by Red



 

The sunset
I close my eyes
I pretend everything's alright
Drowning in anger from all these lies
I can't pretend everything's alright
Please don't let me fall forever
Can You tell me it's over now?

There's a hate inside of me like some kind of master
I try to save You but I can't find the answer
I'm holding on to You
I'll never let go
I need You with me as I enter the shadows

Caught in the darkness
I go blind
Can You help me find my way out?
Nobody hears me, I suffer the silence
Can You tell me it's over now?

I'm holding on to You
I'm holding on to You


Words & Music by Jasen Rauch, Rob Graves and Benjamin Burnley

Behind the Song:
Co-written by Benjamin Burnley, lead singer of rock band Breaking Benjamin, “Shadows” channels the psyche of a person pleading to break out from a box of hate, anger and loneliness. As is common to RED’s style, “Shadows” captures different moods and energies, from the somber loop-driven verses to the guitar-heavy anthem-chorus to the whispered bridge and abrupt screams. Though on the surface it’s about not wanting to be alone, “Shadows” is really an honest cry for help while standing before a hurdle that is simply too high. “When we ‘enter the shadows’ we yearn for something larger than ourselves to lead us through.”
