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 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

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

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

This song is awsome. I've been listening to Skillet since my grandpa died six years ago. THey've helped me get through tough times.

Fantastic! It's a great thing to hear when I'm in one of my party moods! I sing it all the time! I guess I have to if I want to be a part of Christian music someday

My kids love this song. My daughter was six when she first heard it and thought it was, "I feel like a rock star". We didn't correct her. She has wanted to be a rock star ever since.

i know the lyrics

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?

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, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

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?

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 it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

It's hiding in the dark, it's 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
Maybe it's inside of me, stop this monster

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 it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I've gotta lose control, he something radical
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

I love this song because it describes how both my husband and dad feel as they deal with PTSD. I'm so glad that you have this song out, I think it can help all of us feel like we can pinpoint what we're battling inside daily. We all have some kind of monster inside, whether it's PTSD, unconfessed sin, addiction, any kind of struggle. There's only one person who can save us from the monster inside and that is Jesus. We have to lean on Him and trust Him with our monster. He can deliver us from it. We just have to ask Him to and continue to give it to Him on a daily basis. I know it's easier said than done, but it's possible.

it's my favorite song and it always will be!
