the shadow lyrics – devo

dr. jekyll and mr. hyde
a real nice guy with a nasty side
in trouble he tried to hide from himself

good gog, sad man
couldn’t face up to the yin and the yang
everybody all of us got a shadow

who knows what lurks in the hearts of men
the shadow knows we become what
we do not what we pretend

between the intention and the expression
between the emotion and the response
falls the shadow

sometimes i fail to follow through on things
that i want to do and other times i find
myself doing the very things i hate

reverend jimmy and tammy belle
big time pumpers with a story to sell
wait a minute, their finger’s pointin’ at you

pay attention, listen up, don’t try to deny it
or cover it up, everybody, all of us got a shadow
