about

I was playing Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers and was enthralled by voodoo imagery. Your Shadow Grows is about covering up lies and short comings, only to have them add to the darkness that follows you. There is a very specific pun in the lyrics that only a handful of people and I would understand.

lyrics

Southern belles, and voodoo spells
Follow the forest's call when your charms all run out

So if you're missing rain then go fly away
Oh, I wished you would've stayed
So if you hate the rain don't ever show your face here again

What are you running from?
Isn't it obvious that you're keeping all of your flaws out of sight
While you appear in light
Your shadow grows

Dance with witches in sacrificial rite
Vipers kiss on my lips 'til they turn black as night

So if you're missing rain then go fly away
Oh, I wished you would've stayed
Pushing pins and needles through the eyes of your doll

What are you running from?
Isn't it obvious that you're keeping all of your flaws out of sight
While you appear in light
Your shadow grows

Jinxes and hexes on my tongue
Screaming curses from my lungs
While your sweetheart's gone sour
I've grown bitter

Jinxes and hexes on my tongue
Screaming curses from my lungs
While your sweetheart's gone sour
I've grown bitter

What are you running from?
Isn't it obvious that you're keeping all of your flaws out of sight
While you appear in light
Your shadow grows
