10. Carry Me Down

Songs of Death and Resurrection
by Demon Hunter



 

And if you see me losing ground
Don’t be afraid to lie
I know the pain inside my heart can’t break the fear inside of yours
And if you see me losing faith
In what it means to die
Don’t let me leave before I know what lies behind the stained glass doors

Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

Chorus:
Will you carry me down the aisle that final day
With your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray
Let the rain fall down and wash away your pain

For every word we never spoke
We have a tear to cry
For every silence like a wall between a better you and I
So if you see me losing sight
Of all the death in life
You’ll find the peace in every time I failed to see the death in mine

Let all the fear inside you drown
Tear out the blade and lay it down
Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

(Chorus)

Oh, the blood is rushing out
Oh, I’m better off without
Oh, the walls are closing in
Oh, sing for me again

(Chorus)
(Rain down, oh rain down, no care for the flood)




Behind the Song:
The stories we’ve been told regarding the impact of “Carry Me Down” have been some of the most humbling and rewarding throughout the life of the band. The song has become a pillar of solace for many of our fans who have lost love ones, to the degree that it’s been played and performed at a number of funeral ceremonies. The most significant symbol of this consolation came in the form of young fan Ryan Lee’s headstone, which reads “Save sorrow for the souls in doubt.” I certainly hoped to convey a sense of peace when I wrote those words, but I never imagined that peace would manifest in such honest and lasting ways. Strong connections like these only served to sharpen Demon Hunter’s purpose over the years. Writing lyrics that resonate deeply has not only become a personal prerequisite, but a cornerstone of what fans come to expect from the band. —Ryan Clark
