Mike Conte of Early Man was raised by a christian religious sect called the Jehovah's Witnesses. They are notorious for using fear, obligation and guilt in an attempt to control members - particularly those raised in the religion. The sect believes "demons" torment true believers in various ways within the physical world, a phenomenon they sometimes refer to as "demon problems". This song is based on thoughts Mike frequently had to reconcile in formative years while growing up around this superstition.


Verse 1:
I feel it bearing down on me
Inside the mind they will feed
The eyes of death are following
Everything I do they can see

Stretching blacked wings
Moving me through time
Demon problems bring
Your nightmares to life

You know its coming for you too

Verse 2:
Possessed I try my best to breathe
blackness comes crushing down on me
Got nothing left but I still bleed
my soul into eternity

Down we go to the grave
From the tomb no one saved
There is no way to live
When nothing is left to give
