Let It Sleep

Album: The Black (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Denis Stoff sings here about feeling trapped by the "evil thoughts" stirring inside him. Guitarist and chief songwriter Ben Bruce said of the lyrical content: "Everyone has their inner demons. Everyone has their own mental fights they have to deal with. Don't let them consume you. Let them serve as a reminder that things could always be worse. Fight your inner demons and find your inner peace."
