Hold Me Down Lyrics

My demons are begging me to open up my mouth
I need them mechanically make the words come out

Ignite me, licking at the flames they bring about

Getting down on both knees refers to having to pleasure him, stating this is what you live for. She trying to escape him by sneaking out the back door, but she feels helpless.
