The Shadow Man Iii - Poem by Colm Hayes

Out of the darkness they came
The Shadow men, the Shadow men
Their faces all look the same,
They speak;
'Come, come let’s play a game',
A promise to take my shame

Down to the void we went
The Shadow men, the Shadow men
To leave behind all malcontent,
They speak;
'It's time, it’s time to repent',
A moment of remembrance

Around they circle and dance
The Shadow men, the Shadow men
Their movement speeds as they prance,
They speak;
'Here be, here be a final glance'
An offer of one last chance

Into my soul they dive
The Shadow men, the Shadow men
Nothing to be left alive
They speak;
“Onward, onward as one we strive”
A call echoing as all revive

Back into the world we go
We Shadow men, we shadow men
Another helpless mind must know
We speak;
“Come, come let’s see the show”,
A beacon that can only grow

We shadow men, we shadow men
Over and over again
Over and over again
