Shake off the demons left in your mind,
You take them everywhere. You built up my expectations,
And let me down every time. [Verse 2]
You’ve got a cross on your forehead,
You crave the people to see. [Hook]
Last year you stole it,
Was broken [?]. You love playing the victim,
You love the sympathy,
And in your place of solace,
There’s never honesty. Take off your mask, your faded design,
Break off the chains, your cross to bear. These words I’m reading,
Paint a thousand pictures. [Bridge]
Take off your mask you’re hiding behind,
Shake off the demons left in your mind,
You take them everywhere! You polished your reputation,
They’ve never seen the other side. Shake off the demons left in your mind,
You take them everywhere. Nothing that you could tell me,
The past could never change my mind. [Chorus]
Take off your mask, your faded design,
Break off the chains, your cross to bear. [Verse 1]
You’ve laid down the weapons,
You still spread the disease,
And now you make commitments,
You couldn’t possibly keep. [Outro]
Stop hiding
With your cross to bear
Shake off the demons left in your mind
You take them everywhere [Chorus]
TTake off your mask, your faded design,
Break off the chains, your cross to bear. Shake off the demons left in your mind,
You take them everywhere. [Pre-Chorus]
Something I need to tell them,
Not that it would change their minds. [Chorus]
Take off your mask, your faded design,
Break off the chains, your cross to bear. How you can open up their vaults,
With your skeleton key? Shake off the demons left in your mind,
You take them everywhere.
