“The Journal of Wall Grimm” 92: “Demons” by Imagine Dragon

May 14, 2013

My name is Wall Grimm and this is my new favorite song.  The lyrics really mean something.  Something to me, something to everyone in some way probably.  The lines “your eyes, they shine so bright, I want to save their light, I can’t escape this now, unless you show me how” remind me of Emma.  So I have to write these lyrics down in my journal, because they reach me.

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 want to hide the truth
I want to 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
 
When the 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 made
 
Don’t want to let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don’t want to 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 want to save their 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

    You are right — we can all identify with this song in some way. Thank you for sharing it — much better than Radioactive!! :)

  2. Wait, what?!? I just heard this song again today. It’s over a year old?

  3. That’s a great video with post. It’s so impactful when you see the condition of the guy. Poor thing is a skeleton and I guess drugs have been bith savior and demon. Nice work.
