Imagine Dragons: “Demons” (the iLL.F.O. Cover).

“Demons” is from “Night Visions”, the debut album by Imagine Dragons.

Written by Imagine Dragons and Alex da Kid.

Lyrics:

When the days are cold

And the cards all fold

And the saints we see

Are all made of gold

 

When your dreams all fail

And the ones we hail

Are the worst of all

And the blood’s run stale

 

I wanna hide the truth

I wanna shelter you

But with the beast inside

There’s nowhere we can hide

 

No matter what we breed

We still are made of greed

This is my kingdom come

This is my kingdom come

 

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

 

At the curtain’s call

It’s the last of all

When the lights fade out

All the sinners crawl

 

So they dug your grave

And the masquerade

Will come calling out

At the mess you’ve made

 

Don’t wanna let you down

But I am hell bound

Though this is all for you

Don’t wanna hide the truth

 

No matter what we breed

We still are made of greed

This is my kingdom come

This is my kingdom come

 

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

 

They say it’s what you make

I say it’s up to fate

It’s woven in my soul

I need to let you go

 

Your eyes, they shine so bright

I wanna save that light

I can’t escape this now

Unless you show me how

 

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

Shout Out to YOU Guys!

Things got quiet here over the last 6 months… so I wanted to open up about what’s been going on :)

Last summer, I fell into a really intense depression… and it lasted up until recently. It was a painful and difficult time, and I just felt so beaten down. I started to lose the hope and motivation I needed to keep going…

But I did keep going, and made it through– and it’s because of YOU guys!

You reached out with your love, concern, and positive energy…  I’m so moved by how supportive you’ve been through all of this!

Thank you SO much for being there… and reminding me of this special universe we’re creating together ;) I love you guys… you’re my cyborg family!

I’m feeling much healthier these days, and ready to channel these emotions into NR. I want to feed all this inspiration back to you guys! So we’re hitting the studio hard, and you’ll be hearing new music from us this spring <3

Thanks again for being the beautiful people you are… let’s keep sharing this journey of helping each other become dejaded!

 

dejaded Turns 5!

Yay, dejaded turns 5 this week! Feeling super sentimental and grateful to all of you who have made this experience so special.

We started dejaded because we wanted to share our creativity and friendship with you… hoping that we could empower you to embrace your true selves. We’d both been so discouraged and beaten down, giving up on our dreams… so this project was a way to start again. To believe again. To return to that passion and curiosity that got us to be creative in the first place.

And, as we’ve shared our journey, you guys have not only followed the story… you’ve become such a huge part of it.

So, thank you for dreaming with us.

Let’s keep reaching for (what they say is) the impossible together…

NR Transmission #3: “Breaking Free”.

“Breaking Free” is from Nerd Revolt’s debut album. Out now.

Written and produced by Nerd Revolt.

Lyrics by the iLL.F.O.

oppression
crush my soul
hear my voice
become a whisper

made me numb
dead inside
killed my dream
now i feel nothing

don’t need you
to set me free
can’t take away my
lucidity

destroy the shell
of my dead eyes
your ego shatters
now i’m…

breaking free

i’m giving back this
toxicity
pour you a glass
so you can taste it

take this void
and take this darkness
i’m giving back this heavy cross
i’m just…

breaking free

Catching Up and Next Video…

“Rise Above This” is from Nerd Revolt’s debut album. Out now.

Written and produced by Nerd Revolt.

Lyrics by the iLL.F.O.

violated
degraded
manipulated
underestimated

soul desecrated
can’t keep these scars sacred

need to brave this
twisted hatred

know you wanna take me down
into your darkness
leave you back on the ground
as i rise above this

know you wanna take me down
into your darkness
leave you back on the ground
as i rise above this

iLLiberated
dejaded
your darkness fading
my dawn is waiting

dreams tasted
destiny created
not dictated

know you wanna take me down
into your darkness
leave you back on the ground
as i rise above this

know you wanna take me down
into your darkness
leave you back on the ground
as i rise above this

Up Next…
