Tank Shadow

the shadow of a water tower on a Manhattan building, NYC

Oh, I'm being followed by a tank shadow, tank shadow, tank shadow
Leaping and hopping on a tank shadow, tank shadow, tank shadow.

Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?

Shadow Stairs

the shadow of a stop light and some stairs, Manhattan, NYC

A magic dwells in each beginning
and protecting us it tells us how to live.
The world of spirit wishes not to fetter us
but raise us higher, further, step by step.
