The Lyrics

The third bonus parody for "Sonic the Hedgehog Month" focuses on one of the most popular yet divisive characters in the series: Shadow the Hedgehog. Also known as "The Ultimate Life Form", he debuted in "Sonic Adventure 2" and even got his own game, where he tried to figure out exactly who he was and what he was meant to do. Enjoy the parody! DKTOS: (1980 version) (1982 version)
Maria was my friend and they gunned her down,[1]
Faithful to the end, now I always frown.
Who am I now? Why does my name haunt me?
“Give them a chance!” That was her decree!

50 years they took from my life,[2]
I’ve known nothing save for pain and strife,
Gonna stab them and then twist the knife,
Take my time!

Am I Shadow?
Who am I?
Am I Shadow?
I don’t know!
No I don’t!

As I watched Maria die, I lost my head,
Revenge now I sought, I wanted G.U.N. dead.[3]
Taking no chances, I’m breaking free,
It all starts with a jewel, my killing spree!

50 years they took from my life,
I’ve known nothing save for pain and strife,
Gonna stab them and then twist the knife,
Take my time!

Am I Shadow?
Who am I?
Am I Shadow?
I don’t know!
No I don’t!

Whoa!

[guitar solo, song speeds up]

On with my mission now, I don’t know why.
Black Doom runs through my blood, I’ll see him die![4]
His face has scarred my brain, won’t let me sleep.
Like that Biolizard before me, just a black sheep.[5]

Am I Shadow?
Who am I?
Am I Shadow?
I don’t know!

My soul is longing for blood, answers await,
And to avenge Maria, I’ll terminate!
My memories long forgotten, my thoughts so horrid,
My rage in my veins, so torrid.

Am I Shadow?
Who am I?
Am I Shadow?
I don’t know!
No I don’t!

[guitar solo]

On with my mission now, I don’t know why.
Black Doom runs through my blood, I’ll see him die!
His face has scarred my brain, gives me no chance.
Like that Biolizard before me, so entranced.

Am I Shadow?
Who am I?
Am I Shadow?
I don’t know!
Am I Shadow?
Who am I?
Am I Shadow?
I don’t know!
No I don’t!
