"Demons" as written by Peter Duncan Liddle, Matthew Taylor, Scott Miller, Jonathan Warren and William Harvey....
You are the string in my bow.
Biblical Mary to Joe.
The North isn't true 'til it's leading me to you.
You are the way that I know.

Under the weight of belief
You shiver and shake like a leaf.
But death is a force, not a man on a horse
I'll keep you safe while you sleep.

We fight those demons day in and day out,
Day in and day out, day in and day out
And fight those demons day in and day out
Day in and day out, day in and day out
And fight those demons day in and day out
Day in and day out, day in and day out

Day in and day out, day in and day out

    My InterpretationI think this song is about sheltering a loved one. The loved one fears death but "death is a force not a man on a horse", thus it cannot be defeated. "I'll keep you safe while you sleep" is the desire to keep her from death for as long as possible as he doesn't want to lose her because he loves her: "North isn't true 'till it's leading me to you". I'm unsure of the Biblical reference of Mary and Joe but I assume these are either Jesus' mother or his wife and Joseph son of Jacob. The line "We fight those demons day in and day out" I think means we fight fears every day but we shouldn't.

    This is just my opinion but this is how I take it and it's truly a beautiful song.
