When the days are cold And the cards all fold And the saints we see Are all made of gold When the game's over Will you still be there? Once you see The illusion That was once your reality Will you still use the cards You were dealt? When your dreams all fail And the ones we hail Are the worst of all And the blood’s run stale Once you realize Your reality Is dead That your love Is no longer there Will you still Continue playing? I wanna hide the truth I wanna shelter you But with the beast inside There’s nowhere we can hide I want you To stay And play this game With me. But not even I Am real. Or am I? No matter what we breed We still are made of greed This is my kingdom come This is my kingdom come Even if We are both illusions We have no where else To hide Our reality Our soul From ourselves. 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* Can you see my illusion? I can see yours. Are you scared Because of my reality? Or can you still see that illusion intertwined with the same mirage Known as 'real life'?
I was inspired by "Demons" by Imagine Dragons. This isn't an interpretation of the song, just something I felt the sudden urge to type before I lost the spark.
