"Waking The Demon" as written by Matthew Tuck, Jason James, Michael Kieron Paget and Michael David Thomas....
No!
Helpless, my eyes are bleeding from the fear that's inside,
You sealed your demise when you took what was mine
Don't try and stop me from avenging this world,
No voice to be heard

Waking the Demon,
Where'd ya run to
Walking in shadows,
Watch the blood flow
There's not much longer so don't try and fight,
Your body's weakening so walk to the light
All those painful times so alone so ashamed,
I'm not coming back there's nothing to gain

Caution, there's just no limits to the boundaries you push,
I've warned you but still you just fuck with my mind
There's no escape from this rage that I feel,
Nothing is real

Waking the Demon,
Where'd ya run to
Walking in shadows,
Watch the blood flow
There's not much longer so don't try and fight,
Your body's weakening so walk to the light
All those painful times so alone so ashamed,
I'm not coming back there's nothing to gain

Breath for me,
Don't wake me from this slumber
Stay with me,
Possession taking over
Possession taking over

Breath for me,
Don't wake me from this slumber
Stay with me,
Possession taking over
Possession taking over

Waking the Demon

    General CommentThis is my second favourite song from their new cd.(Favourite is Hearts Burst Into Fire)
    Amazing cd, by the way.

    I read an interview with Matt Tuck that this song is about being bullied in school.

    “It’s important to us that fans can make a connection with our songs,” says the front-man. “For example, ‘Waking The Demon’ is about being bullied at school – which is something that me and most of the boys went though. The track is about one day, just turning round, and deciding to not take it anymore. I’d hope that our fans can relate to that.”

    And yeah...lol.

    I can relate to the song =D

    General Commentthis is my first comment on this site, and bfmv is my fav band ever!!! =]

    anyway, i think this song relates to the columbine shooting. a few kids get bullied or years until they cant take it anymore and load up on guns and go to their school. they kill the bulliues first and anyone who gets in their ways.

    thats wat i think this song is about, wen people cant take the bullying anymore, they "wake the demon" and just lose it.

    and the last line line of the chorus "im not coming bak theres nothing to gain" basicly says that after the little killing spree the person being bullied kills themselves hence the line "im not coming bak" beacuse they've killed so many people there's nothing left to gain.

    and this actually happened during the culumbine high school shooting, after the kids were done they blew their brains out.

    its quite sad =[

    Song MeaningI watched the music video very closely. For me i think it means, the guy that is getting bullied. He is counting down to the end of the month. So far the weeks straight he is counting down for the Full Moon. Every day he goes to school he gets bullied. The night he turns in to the demon he is getting revenge. He goes to the same spot and throwed a small dark blue ball at the door. He runs and the bully runs after him. He stops and gets to the ground of the woods, looks up and sees the shine and brightness of the full moon in his eyes. You pause the video when he is turning around in the demon form. He is no werewolf. The bully does get killed because if u look at the hands and the mouth of the demon it is all bloody. After that the bullys friend takes over and it goes down again untill the next full moon.

    General Commentim not too good at figuring out what songs mean, but my personal take on it is simply: a couple breaks up and now that he is alone its bringing out the demon in him. he has nothing good to go back too. he's letting all the bad consume him. "Im not coming back, there's nothing to gain"

    but who knows, like i said im not good at figuring out what they mean.

    General Commentthis song is one of the best on the CD. the music video is kick ass and i watched it over and over again. he is being picked on and counts down till the full moon and then finds the guy that is picking on him and turns into a demon and scares him. the guy eventually goes missing and the bully's friend is now taking over the other bully's job and starts bullying the boy and then the boy counts down till the next full moon.
