Carry Me Down

Album: Storm the Gates of Hell (2007)
  • Vocalist Ryan Clark on bandsonfire.com about this song written from Demon Hunter's Christian perspective: "This song, although seemingly very sad and depressing, is in actuality a love letter to my friends and family. It is essentially something that I would want them all to know if I were to die. I ask my true friends to carry my casket down the aisle, and as they lay me into the ground, not to mourn for my soul, but rather rejoice for my salvation. Death can be viewed as a very negative thing, but for Christians, it is where we find our true hope. Death is never something I would take lightly or toy with, but to address it I think can be very revealing. If you never spoke of the reality of death, you would be ignoring such an important part of life. This song asks my friends and family to 'save sorrow for the souls in doubt,' for they know that my soul is safe."
