Imagine Dragon's Demons

Imagine Dragon came into my radar when I found out 'Radioactive' was the theme song for The Host, a book adaptation film from the author Stephanie Meyer. The movie generates a lot of hype due to the author's popularity with Twilight. I'm not trying to be defensive here, but I'm not a Twilight fan purely due to my age.

Subsequent, I have listened to their entire album 'Night Visions' and was surprised to find that out of the 18 songs (deluxe edition), I like more than half of them during my first play. My most favorite songs from the album is 'Demons'. While I was looking for the mtv in youtube, I found one of the lyrics video that was absolutely beautiful. I even love watching it compare to the official music video itself.


Demons

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Curtain’s call Is the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out

At the mess you've made
Don't wanna let you down
But I am hell bound Though this is all for you
Don't wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
