You can know a needle's eye
Or a hungry baby's cry
But no one knows that demons dance alone

Silver linings came and went
When I was an innocent
Never knowing demons dance alone

But somehow I was seduced
And my innocence reduced
By a demon that became my own

Knowingly I followed it
Took the hook and swallowed it
But then I found it dancing in my home

Terrified I tried to quit
But now I need the taste of shit
Like a dancing demon needs a home

I had hoped to fill my years with
More than melancholy tears
But the demon makes me dance alone

    General CommentOn a more general level, I think the idea of this song is that no matter who you are, your demons are your own and no one else's.

    General CommentThis song is definitely about Addiction, ie Took the hook and swallowed it, Terrified, I tried to quit, etc, and he goes on to say that the addiction ruined his life. the demons he's reffering to are his inner demons, in my opinion.
