"Demon to Lean On" as written by and Nathan Daniel Williams....
You and I pace along the grass
And think of what we had
Ambivalent and young
We're probably just dumb

The truth is that it hurts
And what's it really worth?
No hope and no future

Holding a gun to my head
So send me an angel
Or bury me deeply instead
With demons to lean on

In the sky, it's never coming back
No hope and no future
We'll die the same loser

Holding a gun to my head
So send me an angel
Or bury me deeply instead
With demons to lean on

Numb from it all
Not at all, at all, at all, at all
Numb from it all
Not at all, at all, at all, at all, at all

Holding a gun to my head
So send me an angel
Or bury me deeply instead
With demons to lean on

Holding a gun to my head
So send me an angel
Or bury me deeply instead
With demons to lean on

Holding a gun to my head
Holding a gun to my head
Holding a gun to my head
With demons to lean on

    My InterpretationTo me i feel like this son is about a cry for help. The person crying for help is depressed and suicidal but wants someone to come in to save them. the lyrics "So send me and angle, or bury me deeply instead" are kinda saying that send me an angle (a friend) to save me to not pull the trigger, and saying if not I am pulling it. The lyrics are as if they have lost something or someone and are depressed for that reason. They want help, but the help isn't there.

    General CommentI love this song.

    I personally think this is about the man's biggest conundrum. Choosing between finding a beautiful amazing woman and settling down, or burying yourself deeply into drug addiction and other things that we know are bad, but make us feel a distorted sense of satisfaction.

    The first verse is about his experience with love and having a loved one in his life

    The second verse is the opposite and how he feels when he doesn't have that love in his life

    Holding a gun to my head
    So send me an angel
    Or bury me deeply instead
    With demons to lean on
    -

    He's not happy with his life so he thinks maybe there is someone ( an angel ) who can make him feel better. Or he can bury himself deeply with bad things that make him feel better.

    the next verse is again about not having a loved one in his life and feeling somewhat worthless

    the numb part is just saying that he knows he has feeling and that he can feel love and he's not just some mindless drone or something


    Just my interpretation. I really like the song.
