HOUSE OF LORDS lyrics - Demons Down

HOUSE OF LORDS
"Demons Down"

In the town that I was born in they said that I was wild
A bad seed born to lose forever
My Daddy used to teach me with the backside of his hand
Oh Lord, I guess he didn't know better

Leaving was a long long time coming
I don't know now where the courage was found
'Cause they said "Boy, you'll never amount to nothin'"
But oh Lord,
I stared my demons down

I had one hand on the bible another hand on the wheel
And I headed out in search of my horizons

There's just one thing that I know for certain
Growing old don't make a boy a man
When my time comes and they raise the final curtains
I'll know I took a stand
I stared my demons
I stared my demons down

Black smoke'll fill up the sky
As my bridges burn to the ground
I'll hold my head up high
As I walk right through this town
Don't need no simple minds
Telling me who I am

So I came back to say goodbye
Look 'em in the eyes
And stare my demons down

In the town that I was born in they said that I was wild
Now I'm on the train bound for heaven
