Silhouette Man: original song about Sleep Paralysis

in music •  9 months ago 

Shared with Chad's permission.

Chad says: Silhouette Man is a song I wrote this week about sleep paralysis. I found it pretty fascinating that many people see this the same "shadow people", with one of them being a man in a black hat. Maybe it's because I'm paying attention to it now (or the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon), but after watching a documentary on the topic, I just kept hearing about sleep paralysis. My wife and I also started having dreams that were borderline sleep paralysis.


Silhouette Man
Can't see the palm of his hand
Is it all in my head
Or is it happening to you?

Passing through
Is this what he said to you too?
But what I don't understand
is how he got in my room

Oh what did he come here to do?

Silhouette Man
No face beneath his black hat
As he moves in close
a terror comes over me

It's the strangest thing
Everyone's been talking about him lately
How they can't escape
or move their legs underneath their sheets

Oh what did he come here to do?

If the morning don't for me please understand
that the silhouette man is coming for you

Oh what did he come here to do?

Chad Jordan is a singer-songwriter residing in Asheville North Carolina. Crafting an ever growing list of songs since the mid 90s and being in a handful of bands along the way, he is currently embarking on a solo journey showcasing his introspective acoustic indie-folk material. The omnipresent theme of many of his songs is constant drive to evolve and escape the mundane of modern society. However, sprinkled in are a few more light-hearted songs such as the horticulturally educational "How to Grow Tomatoes" song. You can check Chad's recent two-part interview out on the "WNC Original Music" podcast to learn more about his material:
