My demons came last night
They caught me when my sword was
In its sheath and my armour hung
On the wall, didn't I loathe myself?
They came in black gums and white teeth.
Could it not lend some respite
For a distressing spirit?
My demons mirrored my piano last night
My fingers were gateways to torment
And through my arms they gloated --
Black and white betrayed me
Until my guardian angel came
Through the mist of my eyes
And the fog in my brain --
She clothed me in my armour
Oh! They did tremble in that hour
From whence they came, they fled.
