Human eyes will never know
The horrors that I've seen
The nature of the souls
And the lines I've read between

'Cause it's not the way they're ugly
And it's not the way they creep
It's the friendly way they greet us
And they watch us as we sleep

If you look into their soulless eyes
You'll see them
And know they cause the horrors
Of the world
Wherever there is evil you will find them
Reflected in the eyes of boys and girls

They love to feed the suffering
And the pain caused deep inside
Laughing at the torment
Of a broken, tortured mind

The power of their presence
Is more chilling than their call
'Cause the reason that they're here
Is to make monsters of us all

Monsters walk the earth
In the form of those we've known
They've sent us off to school
And they've watched us as we've grown
Always lurking there behind us
Controlling us from birth
You may call them parents
I know monsters walk the earth

    General Commentthis song is about how they see parents as evil-monsters always telling you what to do and watching over you "controlling us from birth". by the way, Teen Idols are not kids and they weren't when they wrote this song
