Annotationen

Dies war die erste Single der Band, die in den USA und im UK zu selben zeit heraus kam.
Düstere und laute Nummer mit einem Wahwah-Fuzz-Feedback-Sound. Auch ein für die Band untypisches Bläser-Arrangement (von Mike Leander) prägt den Song.
Zur Single gab es eine Fotosession mit der Band in Drag. Der andeutungsreiche aber referenzarme Text suggeriert, von einem leben im Schatten der Gesellschaft zu sprechen, wo das Leben aufregender ist als im Licht.

Lyrics

Have you seen your mother, baby, standing in the shadow? Have you had another, baby, standing in the shadow? I'm glad I opened your eyes The have-nots would have tried to freeze you in ice Have you seen your brother, baby, standing in the shadow? Have you had another baby, standing in the shadow? I was just passing the time I'm all alone, won't you give all your sympathy to mine? Tell me a story about how you adore me Live in the shadow, see through the shadow, Live through the shadow, tear at the shadow Hate in the shadow, and love in your shadowy life Have you seen your lover, baby, standing in the shadow? Has he had another baby, standing in the shadow? Baby, where have you been all your life? Talking about all the people who should try anything twice Have you seen your mother, baby, standing in the shadow? Have you had another baby, standing in the shadow? You take your choice at this time The brave old world or the slide to the depths of decline
