    Shadow On The Wall?

    Well, see, I always knew that there was something... different... about me, ever since I was little. And it took a while for me to realize what it was. I'm just not what I'm supposed to be. I'm a "Shadow". I can put on that happy face most people want to see. I can put forth an...

    Maybe I Should Be
