demons lyrics – silverstein

[verse 1]
you’ve laid down the weapons,
you still spread the disease,
and now you make commitments,
you couldn’t possibly keep.
you love playing the victim,
you love the sympathy,
and in your place of solace,
there’s never honesty.

[pre-chorus]
something i need to tell them,
not that it would change their minds.
you polished your reputation,
they’ve never seen the other side.

[chorus]
take off your mask, your faded design,
break off the chains, your cross to bear.
shake off the demons left in your mind,
you take them everywhere.

[verse 2]
you’ve got a cross on your forehead,
you crave the people to see.
how you can open up their vaults,
with your skeleton key?
nothing that you could tell me,
the past could never change my mind.
you built up my expectations,
and let me down every time.

[chorus]
ttake off your mask, your faded design,
break off the chains, your cross to bear.
shake off the demons left in your mind,
you take them everywhere.
take off your mask, your faded design,
break off the chains, your cross to bear.
shake off the demons left in your mind,
you take them everywhere.

[hook]
last year you stole it,
was broken [?].
these words i’m reading,
paint a thousand pictures.

[bridge]
take off your mask you’re hiding behind,
shake off the demons left in your mind,
you take them everywhere!

[chorus]
take off your mask, your faded design,
break off the chains, your cross to bear.
shake off the demons left in your mind,
you take them everywhere.

[outro]
stop hiding
with your cross to bear
shake off the demons left in your mind
you take them everywhere
