Kevin Gilbert - Shadow Self lyrics

I'm a sick man. A very sick man.
I don't expect you to understand
There I am - Just look at me
I walk among you in talked of men
And I am power's most vital friend
There I am - You're looking at me
But there is no one I have not known
And no one's vengeance I do not own
There I am - Just look at me
I am there in the back of your mind
I am uncaring, I am unkind
There I am - You're looking at me

Creep up behind you when you fill with hate
I get excited when you're irate
I make you crazy, make your conscience numb
I've got the anger gonna get you some

Now we think what we're taught
Shadow self - what we thought
There is no right or wrong
Shadow self - sing your song

You will become me -
There's a fire in my head can't put out
There's a name on my lips can't pronounce
There's a stain on my heart can't get out
And you know the way...

I beat your children, I drop your bomb
From school yard brawls to the pentagon
There I am - Just look at me
Give me a conflict, give me a war
Just give me something worth fighting for
There I am - You're looking at me

Don't try to keep me bottled up inside
I'm there inside you now you cannot hide
I've always been and I will always be
I like the goose-step won't you dance with me?
