You can hide down in the alley
With your hat pulled over your eye
You can wear a wig or moustache
Or any old disguise
Well, you can change your name and your address
Even change your style of clothes
But the Shadow knows
The Shadow knows
– The Coasters “The Shadow Knows” (1958)
Not all ghosts are meant to haunt and shadows never rest. We’ve built a home for the lightness and the darkness to get some R&R; an un-haunted house for the un-seen to rest in peace.
