About This Song & Song Lyrics

About "Demons" by Imagine Dragons

"Demons," from newly mainstream alternative rock band Imagine Dragons, approaches a sensitive topic with passion and somber yet powerful lyrics. Singer Dan Reynolds explained that the song expresses how much really goes on in people we so quickly judge; the demons within prevent us from "getting too close" to these others. Accordingly, the music video intersperses live clips of Imagine Dragons with various narratives of struggling people, from a soldier risking his life to rescue a comrade to a child battling cancer. Not the most optimistic track of 2013, "Demons" still encountered major success throughout the world for its notable sound and enlightening message.

Imagine Dragons – Demons Lyrics

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
