Monster

Track

Appears on: Awake
Lyrics:

V1
The secret side of me
I never let you see
I keep it caged but I can't control it
So stay away from me
The beast is ugly
I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls
In the closet, in the halls
It comes awake and I can't control it
Hiding under the bed
In my body, in my head
Why won't somebody come and save me from this
make it end

Chorus
I feel it deep within
It's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become
The nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I feel like a monster

V2
My secret side I keep
Hid under lock and key
I keep it caged but I can't control it
’Cause if I let him out
He'll tear me up, break me down
Why won't somebody come and save me from this make it end

Bridge:
It’s hiding in the dark
Its teeth are razor sharp
There's no escape for me
It wants my soul it wants my heart

No one can hear me scream
Maybe it’s just a dream
Or maybe it’s inside of me
Stop this monster

i have been listening to skillet for about a year and a half but i could never find the meaning or reason for john to write this song until i got to see skillet at the meet & greet at winterfest 2011-2012

i wanna say this now beecause everytime i show this to my freinds they never find out the meaning so its about sin and what it can do and it makes you feel like a monster and he's connfessing it so i'm gunna ask you this when will you admit you are a monster too? answer this in the comments

favorite thing to do is make three of the same song go at the same time, and so far, whispers in the dark sounds best

theres a video game that describes this song its called the suffering and the suffering ties that bind the guy you play as is torque hes full of rage and the reason this song is related to the game is cause torque turns into a monster but torque is nothing like john the lead singer of skillet but still skillet is always the best
