It Keeps My Demons Away

Location

In a time and place where everything is dark

 We gotta find a way to make sure we keep our spark. 

And as corny as it sounds, we need to be uplifted 

Because everyone gets down no matter how blessed, graced, or gifted.

 

And I have my strength

It’s born out of noise

But not the screams, shouts, and cries of tired little boys 

It's just the sounds of the lyrics and the harmonies I play

That keep me uplifted me and keep my demons away

 

Most people would agree that music is soothing

And it works well to help frayed nerves that need smoothing

It makes me feel stronger, a little less dull

I can use it to release me from that tidal black pull

 

And I have my strength

It’s born out of noise

But not the maniacal cackles of twisted witch’s ploys

It's Just the sounds of the lyrics and the harmonies I play

That keep me uplifted 

And keep my demons away
