HALSEY - Hold Me Down

This song is from the album BADLANDS(2015), released on 28 August 2015.
I enjoyed the production of this song more than the lyrics in it. The vocals were interesting, the background music felt nice, and the rhythm was impressive. The distorted synth and guitars in the background made the song sound really powerful and energetic, but the bass was not as great as I expected it to be. Although it was fine, there was something missing.

[INTRO] C#m B A Abm
[VERSE]
    C#m
My demons are begging me to open up my mouth
C#m                      B        A         Abm
I need them mechanically make the words come out
       C#m
They fight me, vigorous and angry, watch them pounce
C#m                         B            A    Abm
Ignite me, licking up the flames they bring about

[PRE-CHORUS]
C#m
I sold my soul to a three-piece
C#m
And he told me I was holy
C#m
He's got me down on both knees
A              Abm
But it's the devil that's tryna

[CHORUS]
C#m
Hold me down, hold me down
E
Sneaking out the back door,
E
Make no sound
A                       B
Knock me out, knock me out
A                        Abm
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

C#m
Hold me down, hold me down
E                                    B
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
A                        B
Knock me out, knock me out
A                          Abm
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

[VERSE]
C#m
Selfish, taking what I want and call it mine
C#m                          B      A     Abm
I'm helpless, clinging to a little bit of spine
      C#m
They rush me, telling me I'm running out of time
C#m                       B            A     Abm
They shush me, walking me across a fragile line

[PRE-CHORUS]
C#m
I sold my soul to a three-piece
C#m
And he told me I was holy
C#m
He's got me down on both knees
A              Abm
But it's the devil that's tryna

[CHORUS]
C#m
Hold me down, hold me down
E
Sneaking out the back door,
E
Make no sound
A                       B
Knock me out, knock me out
A                        Abm
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

C#m
Hold me down, hold me down
E                                    B
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
A                        B
Knock me out, knock me out
A                          Abm
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

[BRIDGE]
C#m
Hold me down now
C#m
Hold me down now
B        A Abm
Hold me down

[PRE-CHORUS]
C#m
I sold my soul to a three-piece
C#m

But it's the devil that's tryna

[CHORUS]
C#m
Hold me down, hold me down

Knock me out, knock me out
A                          Abm
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for
