The nice soft sweet sounding vocal has a lot of emotion to it. The instrumentation is also very well done. The lyrics are very good. This song is very well arranged!!!

Lyrics

Collect up your demons and bring them to me
All your fears in the darkness that you won't let me see
and the guttering wick
and the stuttering word
and the muttering low
and the simply unheard

Collect up your demons that shine in the light
and we'll catch them like feathers and we'll bind them up tight
and with fire and with water
with blood and with dirt
we will bind them together
so they no longer hurt

Cos those old demons they'll always get you
they'll always get you
they'll always get you
Those old demons they'll come and they'll get you
if you don't chase those demons
if you don't chase those demons

Don't give them an inch or they'll run with a mile
They will tear out your eyes with a wink and a smile
Cos those demons are crafty
and those demons they learn
Got to bury them deeply
till they shudder and they burn

In a mile of fresh earth beneath rolling white clouds
Keep the stars in the heavens and the fires underground
You're blindsided and blinded at your perfect parade
If you're seeking perfection, it's always home-made

And those old demons they'll always get you
they'll always get you
they'll always get you
Those old demons they'll come and they'll get you
if you don't chase those demons
if you don't chase those demons
if you don't chase those demons (away)
