Here Come my Demons

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Crispian Mills told Artist Direct the story of this song. "That actually came from my 5-year-old son, who was chuntering something and I said 'what are you singing?' and he said 'that's my song.' and I said 'what is it?' and he said 'it's called here come my demons. 'And I thought this is such a brilliant title and I was inspired to write that. I've taken a lot of good ideas from him. I'm having to negotiate some kind of licensing ownership with him. I negotiated to buy him out for about three bucks."
