Imagine Dragons Demons

A few months back while checking out the Billboard Top 50, I stumbled upon an Imagine Dragons song titled Demons. The band Imagine Dragons has a humble origin with the band belonging to Las Vegas, Nevada. Everyone will know the band is famous for it’s song Radioactive which has become the biggest rock hit of the year 2013 and still continues to form a part of billboard *it’s been over 90 weeks*. The band was also called the biggest breakout of 2013 and recently swept away a string of awards at MTV music awards after Justin Timberlake *he is a hard one to beat, mate.* But what makes the band thoroughly unique is the lyrics of their songs along with the music and one such song is Demons. The lyrics of the song can make it haunting and unforgettable.

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 hideNo matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom comeWhen 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

At the curtain’s call
It’s 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 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”

For most of us, what we see are the lyrics of just another song but when looked carefully the meaning of this song has delved deeper into human emotions than any song ever could. The song states clearly states that even though everything is not as it seems, there is no warmth or light in our lives and everything looks bleak to us, each and everyone of us needs to continue living. It’s hard now, it might be hard later, our dreams will be broken and our faith will be tested but we have to continue the way we are, with a smile on our faces hiding our deepest darkest secrets, hiding all our demons so if people really look and do care, they can see what we suffer and for who we grieve. But if those people get too involved we end up thinking that they will get hurt looking into our reality. All of us might have some sad stories, some stories will always leave it’s scars, we might have seen too much of hatred, we might have let that hatred be a cause to hate ourselves but in the end we need to face who we are, what we have become and what we want to be as time flows by. We do have a beast from which our loved ones can’t hide so we might hurt the people we love, hold grudges and turn nasty and horrible but when we go out we will always smile, always appear happy. No one can see what we hide inside but one thing is the truth. As we encounter our fate and our trepidation, there is one thing we all end up doing. We all end up hating ourselves a little even when  the things which happen are not our fault and then we meet someone, anyone, who truly sees us for what we are, accept us the way we are, stare into our demons and not be afraid of them.
