To Kill Your Demons


Painting created in Year 12 Painting at Albany Senior High School » by Mosborne01)

« To Kill Your Demons » was completed on March 10, 2013, and is the 20th song written for the henceforth entitled « 30 Songs for the Sunny Season » project.

Basically, the main point of the song is that most-if-not-all experiences, apparent catastrophes included, can be interpreted positively as opportunities for growth.

Again, I plan to repost the following lyrics with an audio or video clip when time allows for the recording and production of proper demos.


verse 1
you were waiting for the right word
for the phrasing no one has heard
no escaping the calendar
no book signing for the dreamer

pre-chorus 1
you've learned your lessons
paid for your crimes
to kill your demons
life took its time

verse 2
you were hoping to be a bird
you had two wings but wanted a third
scared of jumping you went downward
no high flying for the coward

pre-chorus 2
you've bitten lemons
you've bitten limes
to kill your demons
life took its time

verse 3
you were waiting for an answer
an opening on the future
you couldn't stick to the letter
no advancing for the sinner

pre-chorus 3
you've heard the sermons
you wrote the rhymes
to kill your demons
life took its time

verse 4
you were hoping to get a chance
to find a friend to share a dance
no one could get past your first glance
for the heartless there's no romance

pre-chorus 4
you've seen the omens
magic sublime
to kill your demons
life took its time

chorus
how many doors must pass
'til you go in at last
don't let your moment pass
just seize it fast
