Okay, so it’s not exactly a secret that I lovelovelove Imagine Dragons. “Radioactive” is possibly one of the best songs I’ve ever heard everrrr, and their other songs ain’t too shabby neither.
But this post isn’t about “Radioactive,” because that song has been assigned to a different WiP of mine–one that actually involves radioactivity. But I digress…
If you’ve heard the song “Demons” and paid even the smallest bit of attention to its lyrics, you will already know that the song is about the personal demons that humans must grapple with: an abusive past, PTSD, degenerative diseases, etc. I thought it fit Connor well, because of his ongoing battle with the monster within himself: the monster he could so easily and blissfully become if he allowed himself.
Being Connor is like being a recovering alcoholic locked in a room with a thousand open bottles of the finest booze money can buy. Or in my case, the finest chocolate. Mmm chocolate.
