An episode about embracing our shadows rather than running away from the parts of ourselves we don’t like, are ashamed of or just plain think are shitty!

In this week’s episode of Getting Naked With Nate:

  • Do we create the prisons we find ourselves in?
  • Is the world as it is, or as we see it to be?
  • And so much more…

Quick note: leave a review on iTunes so more people can find and enjoy Getting Naked With Nate.

Lyrics

It’s hard to open up my eyes
When I feel like I’ve been blind
All of my days, now I’m
Wandering through the haze
And the world is looks so crazy
Maybe that’s just me
Maybe it’s just me

We all find our secrets
Patient in the shadows
Right there where we left them waiting
No matter how far we run
They run right beside us
Our demons know our names
Better than anyone

See me trapped within this construct
Beating at the locked up door and
Gripped tight deep within my fist
Is the key to all I’ve missed
That the pain is just the teacher
And the cage is just a myth

We all find our secrets
Patient in the shadows
Right there where we left them waiting
No matter how far we run
They run right beside us
Our demons know our names
Better than anyone

I spend oh so many hours
Building up and giving power
To the worst I can imagine lives in me
And now oh to my surprise
When the ghost as me disguised
Is the best at breaking everything
Everything, everything I dream.

You who presume you can stay dry by
Dodging all the raindrops falling
Thick, try lifting up your tongue
To the rain not just the sun
Nothing quite so simple
Was ever so much fun

We all find our secrets
Patient in the shadows
Right there where we left them waiting
No matter how far we run
They run right beside us
Our demons know our names
Better than anyone
