"Monolith" as written by and Joel/rand Ekman....
Is this wrong of me? I've come so far, so fast
I'm in the dark about a lot of things
Seems so real, to me!
I've consecrated!
I wish that I could hate it
I saw my bloody hands come clean, before my eyes!
And I hear my wants and needs again, can you help me?
And I hear a different kind again, someone stop me
And I feel the strain inside my mind, am I crazy?
And I need to shed my skin, reveal this monolith within

Visions plague my dreams, oh god, what beast did this?
I couldn't have: oh Jesus, I just don't know
What's inside, of me?
I've desecrated!
My god, I love to hate it!
My hands are bloody again, there's no reason why!

And I hear my wants and needs again, can you help me?
And I hear a different kind again, someone stop me
And I feel the strain inside my mind, am I crazy?
And I need to shed my skin, reveal this monolith within

And I hear my wants and needs again, can you help me?
And I hear a different kind again, can you stop me
And I feel the strain inside my mind, am I crazy?
And I need to shed my skin, reveal this monolith within

    General CommentFrito thats a great dictionary definition but the true definition of monolith for this song, is a large (burdensome) stone that cannot be moved. So what he is implying is the fact that he has done things that cannot be removed from his life. Also you guys are right he is singing about what he has done subconsciously and when he knocks back into reality he thinks that this is horrible and he would never do such a thing... at least thats what i think.....

    General Commentok let me begin monolith is a stone with a meaning in this case stone sour is the stone and the song is the meaning of wat they feel.....the song is about that they done stuff in the past that they got away with that still bothers them bcuz they dont feel it was them truly...but they tell themselves is was their need at the time and it stayed in the head and couldnt get out(and i hear a different kind again can u help me?)but to me the whole ideal of the song is *and i need to shed my skin reveal this monolith within- to me this means that everything they did at the time was bcuz of the influence around them that led them to do things that bothered them now and they want to reavel their true selves not wat they became bcuz of their surrounding at the time ......plz email me if u aggree jimroot69@yahoo.com

    General Commentim not entirely sure what the song is supposed to be about, it can go a few different ways from what i can see.

    it sounds at points like he sees these really horrible things around him, and he thinks "i didn't dothis" but then he says, "did I?" its like he cant remember and he starts to question himself.
    goin with that thought, it sounds like part of the song is sung from a different point of view within him. like a different personality, and it is enjoying doing these things, whether it bemurder or what. and when that side starts to fade and the other comes out, he says "i saw my bloody hands come clean before my eyese!"

    General Commentexcellent job kerplinko! thats preety close to what i think too. the lyrics are really confusing and i think the song could mean alot of things. it seems like hes really confused and he doesnt know what to think or how to react. it almost sounds like he has 2 personalitys and when he says "And I need to shed my skin, reveal this monolith within" i think hes saying that he needs to expose the "real" person inside of him. and as for the verses it sounds like he does things that he either cant remember doing or cant beleive he did. i think this song is just one big cry to rid himself of the side of himself that he hates. who really knows? music is open for interpretation, so this song along with any other could mean whatever the hell you want it to mean to you

    General Commenti think this song is about him becoming a famous person quickly... monolith means a special stone so i am just guessing it goes along with the title stone sour he is the leader of the band this is only a guess don't get pissed

    General CommentActualy monolith means
    1 : a single great stone often in the form of an obelisk or column
    2 : a massive structure
    3 : an organized whole that acts as a single unified powerful or influential force
    So he is suggesting that maybe something big is going on in side of him. POSSIBLY!!
    It sounds like when people fight and get into an adrenalin rush, you never know what you will do. I think he is saying that he has just done something and he didn't really think that he could or would do something like it.

    General CommentI think it's about a problem that's causing him to doubt himslef. he wants to bring it out and show the world.

    General CommentI think this song is like he has MPD. just cause...
    Visions plague my dreams - oh God, what beast did this?
    I couldn't have..oh Jesus, I just don't know
    What's inside - OF ME?

    like it sounds like "i vaguely remember something, but i didnt do it (cause it was hs other personality) then with the "whats inside of me" like saying "am i screwed up" then "my hands are bloody again and theres no reason why"....like i could be wrong, but i figured id add my 2 cents, and its not really the best explanation, but oh well
