"Demon(s)" as written by Paul Burnette, John Henry, Kristopher Norris, Ryan Parrish and Michael Schleibaum....
Oh, you and me, we're the same
Asking for more than the numbing existence
Offered us all
What did they say? What did they do?
To make you crawl back in
Despite everything that you've been through
You're still right where I left you
We can lift up our hands to the sky
Find all of those strings that they're pulling and keep from falling back
Into our old rhythmic poses
Turning us into machines

And one of these days we'll no longer betray ourselves
In any way we won't all look the same way down
And one of these days we'll no longer betray ourselves
In any way and we'll all take the same way out

And all these illusions dropped on a sea of believers
Crowding around as they hunt me down
And throw me out
While all the rest of the others
Bang their heads in the dredges

[x2]
And one of these days we'll no longer betray ourselves
In any way we won't all look the same way down
And one of these days we'll no longer betray ourselves
In any way and we'll all take the same way out

So don't give up on me
We can be still pretend
This is all just a game
That'll work itself out in the end

    General CommentPlease help me with this song! Some of the audio in the music video I just can't hear, so go ahead and post some more correct lyrics, perhaps whenever the album comes out with written lyrics.

    General Commenti know it might seem obvious, but my best guess is it's about life, and how you shouldn't get caught up in the finer points of religion and just live your life, it'll work out in the end. There's no way you'll ever know what's beyond this existence, until you get there, so just let it go and enjoy your life.

    the name of the song and the video also gave me the impression that it was about letting things go, the old man following the boy and finding his posessions in the field, and how it ends with him just wearing white, and smiling in a relieved way, he let go of his demons.

    General CommentThe lyrics in the end I think are "So don't give up me
    We can still pretend this all just a game
    that'll work itself out in the end."

    General CommentI think I got the lyrics perfectly down

    You and me were the same
    Asking for more
    more than her numbing existence
    Offered us all

    What did they say?
    What did they do?
    To make you crawl back in
    Despite everything that you've been through,
    You're still right here

    Where I left you

    We can lift up our hands to the sky
    Find all those strings that they're pulling
    And keep from falling back
    Into our own reposes
    It's turning us into machines

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray
    Ourselves in any way
    We will all look the same way down

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray
    Ourselves in any way
    And we'll all take the same way out

    And all these illusions
    Crush all who say you believe us
    Crowding around as they
    Hold, me, down
    and throw me out
    While all the rest of the others
    Bring all their heads in the trenches

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray
    Ourselves in any way
    We will all look the same way down

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray
    Ourselves in any way
    And we'll all take the same way out

    [Solo]

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray
    Ourselves in any way
    We will all look the same way down

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray
    Ourselves in any way
    And we'll all take the same way out

    So don't give up on me
    We can all just pretend it's a game
    That'll work itself out in the end

    General Commenti think this song could be about peoples bad habits coming dack to haunt them...hence the song title.... and how they keep pulling you back into them. it sounds like the guy is trying to tell someone how much better they are then what they are doing...maybe an addiction or something else...and how they have to let go and be themselves.
