"Demons" as written by Zachary James Baker, Jonathan Seward, Matthew Charles Sanders, James Owen Sullivan and Jr. Haner....
I made a brand of my own poison that I gave to you
It was the first of my experiments I’m going to put you through
Now it’ll only make you dizzy, sick, and paralyzed
I think you’ll live without the antidote, the ending’s a surprise
I think you’ll lie

One fell out of my dreams
It crept into my heart
Found the one and made its home there
I can’t help what I’ve become
And when it’s over stay true and act the part
I know it won’t last but that’s the way it goes

Now I can live with all my demons, we all get along
And they whisper in my ear “we’re safe, there’s always something wrong”
And if it looks like Armageddon’s coming down today
I’ll kick back a bottle of that poison, it’s made for you and me
Come on, let’s go

One fell out of my dreams
It crept into your heart
Paved the way for me to follow
But I was only 17
And when it’s over, stay true and act the part
I know it won’t last but that’s the way it goes

Then I could feel it on, it’s burning through my veins
I saw light today, I could manipulate
I made an ocean for you to sail
I promise you calm seas
Small waves through everything
I’ll make it easy, but I’ll float away
And if you find me currents to follow me
I hope you will

One fell out of my dreams
It crept into my heart
Found the one and made its home there
I can’t help what I’ve become
And when it’s over stay true and act the part
I know it won’t last but that’s the way it goes

    My InterpretationSo I think it is a song about a possible first love, considering the the lines "Paved the way for me to follow/ But I was only 17", and the possible temptations encountered in that love (i.e. Demons and the chorus "One fell out of my dreams/ It crept into my heart) and the inevitability of it ending (And when it's over/ Stay true and act the part/ I know it won't it won't last but that's the way it goes)

    The "poison" is referring to the symptoms of love, i.e. "Dizzy, sick, and paralyzed" as in making one's head spin, the feelings of butterflies in the stomach, and unable to move in a significant other's presence.

    In the second verse, the lines "And if it looks like Armageddon's coming down today/ I''ll kick back a bottle of that poison, it's made for you and me" it's referring to if today is the last day we have left I want to spend it in love with you, which are really intense feelings one could be experiencing for the first time.

    But hey, that's just a theory.
