  • Jack of Shadows, nocturnal outlaw
    Daemon of darkness, brother to the night
    Jack of Shadows, what's he hanging out for?
    King of the dimensions, the other side of light

    And when he passes
    He casts shades of mystery black
    Flowing like molasses
    It's only Jack of Shadows on his way back
    To the kindom of thieves
    Before the skies crack

    Jack of Shadows, cloak of constellations
    Draped around his body, blanking out his face
    Jack of Shadows, don't believe in God, he
    Steals from the future, fades without a trace

    And when the flames flare
    Flickering forms of velvet dark
    He plays his games there
    It's only Jack of Shadows, he's lit up by a spark
    To run into the umbra , as fast as a shark

    Jack of Shadows, ultravoilet eyesight
    Giving him the vision that cats-eye infrared
    Jack of Shadows, watch him as he flies right
    Through all of the umbras, quicker than the dead

    And when he passes
    He casts shades of mystery black
    Flowing like molasses
    It's only Jack of Shadows on his way back
    To the kindom of thieves
    Before the skies crack

    Jack of Shadows, Jack of Shadows
    Jack of Shadows, Jack of Shadows
    Jack of Shadows, Jack of Shadows.......
