Dutch: Mensen met NAH (Niet Aangeboren Hersenletsel) doorlopen een aantal stadia. Ontkenning, Rouw, Acceptatie, Frustratie, Angst, Boosheid, Depressie etc. Dit nummer gaat over het moeizame proces van jezelf opnieuw dingen aanleren en je beperkingen leren kennen. Dat proces maakt vaak zwaarmoedig. Het nummer Shadows of the Night gaat hierover maar aan het eind is er toch een lichtpuntje van hoop en een herreizenis van de nieuwe ik

Song text Shadows of the Night by FoggyBrains
I wander through the shadows in my mind
Lost within a labyrinth of pain
Spiraling down into the depths of despair
All my hopes and dreams slowly fade

This darkness consumes me, it's all I can feel (it's all I can feel)
But I won't let it define who I am (define who I am)
I'll rise above the ashes, face the storm (face the storm)
And find the strength to carry on (carry on)

A constant battle with the demons in my head
Every step forward feels like two steps back
I've lost my way, drowning in this darkness
The weight of it all upon my weary shoulders

This darkness consumes me, it's all I can feel (it's all I can feel)
But I won't let it define who I am (define who I am)
I'll rise above the ashes, face the storm (face the storm)
And find the strength to carry on (carry on)

In the silence of the night, I search for light
Breaking through the shadows, I ignite
With every heartbeat, I defy the pull
Rising from the depths, I find my soul

This darkness consumes me, it's all I can feel (it's all I can feel)
But I won't let it define who I am (define who I am)
I'll rise above the ashes, face the storm (face the storm)
And find the strength to carry on (carry on)

Through the storm, I'll find my way
Beneath the clouds, I'll see the day
With courage as my guiding flame
I'll break free from this endless game

This darkness consumes me, it's all I can feel (it's all I can feel)
But I won't let it define who I am (define who I am)
I'll rise above the ashes, face the storm (face the storm)
And find the strength to carry on (carry on)

As the darkness fades into the distant night
I'll embrace the dawn with newfound light
With every step, I'll leave the past behind
And in the echoes of this song, my strength I'll find
