Shadow Puppet

Just let the chord fade
It wonít play here anymore
Heís just a shadow puppet
Out of tune with who he was before

Busy plucking on his strings
Forgetting the words that he sings
Doesnít even care they spelled his name wrong
But thatís his song
And itís been that way for way too long

The shadow puppet plays all the covers
But he will not play his own
Wears sunglasses to keep the crowd out
Can only sing when heís alone

Fell in love with a day drinking broad
Who use to follow him on the road
She reminds him of his younger self
When all his songs, just flowed

Shine the spot on his face
He tries picking away the scars
His wrinkles play like fallen notes
Hidden behind his mic and old guitar

Wonít you
Let the shadow puppet sing
Let the shadow puppet shout
Let the shadow puppet dance
Let the shadow puppet out
Let the shadow puppet out
Let the shadow puppet out!
