About

This Is My Kingdom Come refers to the pre-chorus part of the 2013 Imagine Dragons song "Demons." In 2021, the part gained viral popularity in memes as a joke about semen, being paired with videos of various white liquids being sprayed or spilled.

Origin

On January 28th, 2013, American rock band Imagine Dragons released "Demons,"[1] the fourth single from their studio album Night Visions (music video shown below). In the pre-chorus part of the song, the lyric "this is my kingdom come" is repeated twice. The term "kingdom come" has Biblical origin and means "forever" or "heaven."[2]

In the late 2000s, advertising agency CHEETHAM BELL created a series of commercials for the antacid Gaviscon in which firemen extinguish fires burning in stomachs with a white liquid (shown below, right).[3]
