Everyday Demons Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Demon Eyes (4:08)
Looking out my narrow window
I'll tell you what I see
Pit bulls are on the streets
They're closing in on me
Could it be this paranoia keeping me intact?
Lock the door and load my gun, this time I'm fighting back.

So take a look across your desk
You tell me why I'm here
You've been making all that money
Preying on the fear
I can see your demon eyes
The target has been set
Take a shot for old time's sake
You've done no damage yet

The way you smile all the time
Crooked badge, you're spitting lies
I'm all alone in my home my only friend

I tried to look you in the eye
I tried to tell you I'm alive
I tried, I tried to tell you
When there's just no medicine
For those lies of mine
I'm terrified what I might find
When I hide behind those demon eyes

Why'd you take the time you're taking
To undermine my name
Does it help you sleep at night
To play that righteous game
Why'd you say those things you said
Words that you don't mean
Two faces telling lies, telling lies to me

The way you smile all the time
Crooked badge, you're spitting lies
I'm alone in my home, you'll bury me

I tried to look you in the eye
I tried to tell you I'm alive
I tried, I tried to tell you
When there's just no medicine
For those lies of mine
I'm terrified what I might find
When I hide behind those demon eyes

You love to look me in the eye, to tell me you're alive

To look me in the eye, to tell me you're alive,
you've got to demonize

You gotta know I tried
You gotta know why

I tried to look you in the eye
I tried to tell you I'm alive
I tried, I tried to tell you
When there's just no medicine
For those lies of mine
I'm terrified what I might find
When I hide behind those demon eyes
2. Too Far Gone (4:03)
You don't know, you can't know, just who I am.
You don't know, you can't know, just who I am.
You say you gotta' name and a number
Well we're gonna' find you anyway!
Communication's lost throughout the land
You offer me your guilty hand
Because you're too far gone with the money you spent
Take a stab at a war, you work for the government

You're too far gone
You're too far gone, I say
You're too far gone, but you keep pushing harder and harder

Think you got a vote from the people
Now you've got to fight for you're right to stay
Disillusion can't connect the world
I can't believe in your f*cking law, no more
Because you're too far gone with the money you've spent
Take a stab at war, you're working for the government

You're too far gone
You're too far gone, I say
You're too far gone, but you keep pushing harder and harder

You take the free from the people
I guess you got the human disease
You stand tall you look so strong
But you're taking the free out of me
Yeah out of me
And it's not exactly hard to see

You don't know you can't know just who I am
You don't know you can't know just who I am

You're too far gone
You're too far gone, I say
You're too far gone, but you keep pushing harder and harder
Yeah........oooh
3. On and On (3:37)
Waking from a dream
Will it disappear
Can you look me in the eye, tell me do you see a trace of fear
Crawling out of bed in my head I can't handle the day
I was hoping for release, oh give me peace just get out of my way

On and on and on and on we fly
I live and I laugh and I cry
So doctor take hammer to my broken heart
Won't you tell me why I've got trouble on my mind

Try to read the meaning of a song on a spent coffee cup
It said life's a contradiction holy water from a dirty jug
Tried impressing honeys with the monies that I'd already spent
Crying to a hobo I'm in trouble 'cause I ain't got no rent
Ever feel they are dragging you under, premonition I'm going
Held the 12 but they dealt me a king to deny

On and on and on and on we fly
I live and I laugh and I cry
So doctor take hammer to my broken heart
Won't you tell me why I've got trouble on my mind

We could have it all, we could have it all
We could have it all, but it's falling through our hands
Help me to understand, oh
Help me to understand

On and on and on and on we fly
I live and I laugh and I cry
So doctor take hammer to my broken heart
For I'm wondering why, I've got trouble going.......

On and on and on and on we fly
I live and I laugh and I cry
So doctor take hammer to my broken heart
Won't you tell me why I've got trouble on my mind
4. Cry Out (5:08)
Cry out.....

Cry out we are young
So high and hooked on trouble gum
Stand tall and have no fear
Take back the power ringing in my ears

Cry, cry out loud
Cry, we stand our ground
To shine, to shine like gold
Don't break before you lose control
Oh yeah

Strange smells fill the air
It's Friday at the Mariner
The girl I love calls my name
She's all alone in the pouring rain, she says
Lie down on the grass, light up your smokes
Clouds are rolling past

Cry, cry out loud
Cry, we stand our ground
To shine, to shine like gold
Don't break before you lose control
Oh yeah

Oh show me the future man so I can prepare
The wheels are in motion to I don't know where
The people who are shifting they would hold me here
And I, I'm not afraid, no, and who are they for tellin' my direction
Tell me...who....yeah

Cry out I am free
Nobodies gonna stifle me
Got no sleep last night I'm not done yet
Be strong don't ever listen to the doubts in your head

Cry, cry out loud
Cry, we stand our ground
To shine, to shine like gold
Don't break before you lose control
Oh yeah

Don't break before you lose it
Be strong, be strong, you gotta hold on
Shine like gold, shine like gold
Don't break before you, before you, before you, lose control!
5. Why'd You Change Your Mind (4:52)
They found a letter in your pocket, alarm bells in your head
A paining of a long knife hidden in the bed
You swore you're suicidal as you were staring at the rope
With the garage door behind you
Offering no hope

Why'd you change your mind?
Why'd you change your mind?
Honey can you tell me, why'd you change your mind?

So I ruffled up your feathers
I tried to understand your ways
But you were changing with the weather
You were changing every day

Why'd you change your mind?
Why'd you change your mind?
Honey can you tell me, why'd you change your mind?
So you walked the other way
I saw you walk the other way
Now you'll never tell......me

If I'm honest I can still be led
Turn your head, turn your head
If I'm honest I can still be led
Turn your head, turn your head

Why'd you change your mind?
Why'd you change your mind?
Honey can you tell me, why'd you change your mind?
So you walked the other way, I saw you walk the other way
Tell me why'd you walk, why'd you walk the other way?

Now you'll never tell me, now you'll never tell me
Now you'll never tell
6. Pride (3:51)
You've been ripped apart, you never had that start
You never had your picture on the wall
Haven't you seen the way you been
You helping to break my fall
Rippin' your clothes, strikin' that pose

How can you say that I never ever tried?
I thought that you were happy
I thought that you had some
PRIDE, PRIDE
Yes I thought you had some pride

You couldn't break the chains
So here we are again
You couldn't break those chains that drag you down
Locking the door you slide to the floor
You're happier on your own
No one to blame carry that pain
Ooh

How can you say that I never ever tried?
I thought that you were happy
I thought that you had some pride
Don't you cry, don't you cry
And I wish that I could bury the pain that's in your eyes

Pride, Pride, Pride
Pride, Pride, Pride

Haven't you seen the way that you've been
You're helping to break my fall
But I won't forget, I cannot forget that pose
Don't you cry, don't you cry
Yes, I wish that I could bury the pain that's in your eyes

Pride, Pride, Pride
Pride, Pride, Pride
7. Walkin' Mat (4:11)
Not gonna be your walkin' mat honey
And I don't really care if you tip your hat my way, no
So wear your best dress and smile for the flash and a prize giving bash
Where you pick on another man's dream
You know what I mean!

Are you talkin' to me she said
Are you talkin' to me
I never got nothing for free she said, no
I never ever got nothing for free and
And I said, I'm not gonna be your walkin' mat

Throw your stones and break my back
Curse my name for all your like
Your champagne wargames been replaced
I see through that pretty smile on your face

Take two pills and dance on the table
If I want does it mean I'm not stable in the head?
Not gonna drink your frozen Margueritas
And I don't really need a "fone a Senorrita"
For my bed, oh no no no!

"Are you sayin' we're through?" she said
"Are you sayin' we're through?"
"Why should I listen to you" she said
"Tell me why I should listen to you?" and I said
"Too many times you tried, tried to bring you down"

Thrown stones and break my back
Curse my name for all your lack
Your champagne wargames been replaced
I see through that pretty smile on your face

Leave all that cocaine in my room, yeah yeah
No I'll not be leaving to please you, oh no no
And I'm not gonna be your walkin' mat
No, I'm never ever gonna be your walkin' mat
No I'll never ever let you bring me down again like this

Thrown stones and break my back
Curse my name for all your lack
Your champagne wargames been replaced
I see through that pretty smile on your face
Oooh yeah!
I see through that smile...
8. Tonight (3:42)
Today's the day we're gonna leave all our problems
Just get up and go
So forget them, you don't need them
Leave it alone

When the good mornings are long
I can never go wrong
There's a storm coming our way
But not today

Tonight's the night you can make it
Tonight's the night you can make it
Tonight's the night you can make it
So alright with me.

You asked for silver and I gave you gold
I'm asking nothing from you
If these people had a clue what we knew
They'd be feeling it too

The time's passing us by
But I've never risen so high
The day is moving so fast
So we got to make it last
Make it last

Tonight's the night you can make it
(ooh la la la la na na na na na)
Tonight's the night you can make it
(ooh la la la la na na na na na)
Tonight's the night you can make it
Tonight's the night you can make it
Tonight's the night you can make it
Tonight's the night you can make it
You can make it all right
You are alright with me
9. Dead of the Night (3:16)
Belfast town, could you bring me round
Like the street light swingers rope upon the ground
So we ready for a peace but we're prepared for a war
I got a black code warning splashed against the wall

In the cool red light, in the dead of the night
We wash the pain away
As the night turns into morning, and the morning into day
We wash away, wash away, wash away the pain

There's a girl that I see all alone in the street
Shell be crying on the morning that we meet
With her ripped black lace, she's got her hair out of place
But a pure intention, perfection in her face

In the cool red light, in the dead of the night
We wash the pain away
As the night turns into morning, and the morning into day
We wash away, wash away, wash away the pain

And I return to you with a promise to renew
I will never lose sight of the cool red night
As I kill your fragile body I can never know your name
We wash away, wash away, wash away the pain

Everybody's got demons, demons in the night
So you better start believing everyday's a fight, yes it is
Everybody's got demons, demons in the night
So we better start believing
We can make it all, alright

In the cool red light in the dead of the night
We wash away the pain
As the night turn to morning, and the morning into day
We all, reach for another day
We wash away, wash away, wash away, you know we got to
Wash away, wash way, yes we got to wash away
Wash away, wash away the pain
10. Comfort Zone (4:43)
Work all day come back home, get a little older
I don't feel like I belong, devil on my shoulder

Discomfort I wait for you
Discomfort I.....

Try and break my routine, it's harder than it looks here
Drowning in monotony, thinking that I'm alright
Discomfort I wait for you
Discomfort I.....

Can I embrace a moment with you
Can I embrace a moment with you
I missed my chance a thousand times before
I swear that am I gonna miss no more

I will die in this place reading in the papers
Another frown another face hoping for a rebirth

Discomfort I wait for you
Discomfort I....

Can I embrace a moment with you
Can I embrace a moment with you
I don't need a lifetime, a moment will do
Can I embrace a moment with you
For I missed my chance a thousand times before
No I swear that I am gonna miss no more

Aah get it out of, get it of my way
Aah get it out of, get it of my way

Can I embrace a moment with you
Can I embrace a moment with you
Don't need a lifetime, a moment will do
Can I embrace a moment with you
For I missed my chance a thousand times before
And I tell you I am gonna miss no more
So would you give me the reason I need
I waited so I want more and more and more and more
Yes I swear that I, I'm gonna miss no more

I missed my chance a thousand times before
And I tell you I, I'm gonna miss no more
11. Evil Man (4:35)
Saw my smile as she turned around
Thought she lost something I had found
I said believe we're both the same
She said honey I can't play that game
Either way I'm a loveless man
Either way she said, I'm an evil.......man

I took her home to my welcome bed
Asked me what it was she'd been fed
Got that hunger and she's got that fight
Left her lonely in morning light

Let everybody talk about me,
Everybody gonna talk about me
Everybody's talking about me, let them talk

I'm an evil man (I am an evil man)
She'll never let me forget
I'm out to get what I can get (I am an evil man)
And I understand what she said
I should examine my head

She proclaimed that she did not choose
Looked like her reflections been misused
Heads been spinning and her body aches
Blame that pill she chose to take

Nobody gonna' stand beside her
Nobody gonna' sympathize,
Nobody gonna sympathize now
Sympathy

I'm an evil man (I am an evil man)
She'll never let me forget
I'm out to get what I can get (I am an evil man)
I understand what she said
I'm and evil man, I am evil....

Ooohh Ooooh
Ooooh Ooooh

Got that hunger do you, got that hunger do you
Got that hunger do you
Got that hunger

I'm an evil man (I am an evil man)
She'll never let me forget
I'm out to get what I can get (I am an evil man)
And I understand what she says
I am evil.....(I am an evil man)
There's so much going on in my head
She just cannot comprehend (I am an evil man)
And I understand what she says
I'm an evil man
I am evil...
