lyrics

I was just a kid when the wooly-bully said that I wasn’t right
“He’s a mistake" they said
"he’s only going to make it if we show him the light”
But they mis-spoke because the filament just broke
on every instrument the bullies tried
They said “the kid is light resistant,
and the local superstition says we’ve got to get him out of sight”
They cast me out, said “there can’t be any doubt about it,
Banish the baby”
I heard a sound coming off in the dark so I followed it, baby
When I found it,
Oh! How loud the sound was pounding on my banished little baby ears
I realized I was born a rocker
so I gave the door a knock and did the shadow
Come out of the light and do the shadow
I was just a kid when I found out where they hid we did the shadow
Come out of the light and do the shadow!
It was the crazies who raised me up
I grew up doing the shadow all the time
They hid me in their cloaks and spoke in codey jokes
You’ve got to run and hide to do the shadow
Come out of the light and do the shadow
Now every time I hear a sound come out of the dark I feel alright
Back at home the only thing they ever did was try to show me the light But I don’t want to see it and I wouldn’t want to be it
because it just wouldn’t be right
to let them fill you up with sleepers
and salute the creepy creepers who diluted every feeling in sight
There’s only one connection
if you want a good reflection to your pretty mind
You’ve got to run from the grey-face
Gotta find a safe place to hide
You must protect it
You’ve got to reject it if they ever try to show you the light
If you dream in color
Don’t you know you’re going to love to do the shadow
Come out of the light and do the shadow
If nobody’s quite like you, we insist that you be true and do the shadow Come out of the light and do the shadow
