"Monster" as written by Andreas Mikael Carlsson, Celetia Verona Martin, Harry Mikael Sommerdahl and Karl Jonas Engstrom....
Just make this go away.
There's nothing left inside for you to take.

I can't believe I'm all by myself
Ripping away all that remains,
Pieces of me, they just fall away.

As I fall, further away from myself
I seek the days that escape me.
I choke on the ones I'm left with
The monster's building inside me.

And I hate the way I feel.
I pray THE wounds will heal.
Before the darkness,
How long will this last?

I try - with every waking moment of my life
As I waste away
To hide - the monster that is building up inside
The scars in me
So blind - pins and needles buried in my eyes
What's left of me
Goodbye - to everything that's chasing me

Look into my eyes, do you see yourself?
The reflection I see everyday.
I'd bury my hate, but the pain is killing me.

As I look in the mirror to see my face clearer,
Reflections of shame staring back at me.
I choke on my wretchedness,
The monster builds up inside me.

And I hate the way I feel.
I pray THE wounds will heal.
Before the darkness,
How long will this last?

I try - with every waking moment of my life
As I waste away
To hide - the monster that is building up inside
The scars in me
So blind - pins and needles buried in my eyes
What's left of me
Goodbye - to everything that's chasing me

So blind - now I know how you make me feel.
So tired - everything I know is crushing me,
And I know that you can not trust in me.
Now I know how you make me feel.

    General CommentFucking awesome, loved them before they split with almost all the band to begin with, but with all the new members, it's just that much more. Definitely don't understand why if Mark from Chimaira drags them around why his label won't pick them up...Anyways, fucking badass song, badass band.

    General Commenthehe I love Stemm alot to... The first song was this, I heard... And whats that stuff with Mark???

    Hmm well anyways... The lyric could relate to something that has to do with a bad childhood, bad relationsship with a person, a person who maybe maked his life much more worse, ore maybe the abuse of narcotics... But thats just my opinion! Isn't this site maked for people to discuss,the songs, and not just tell about the band... The songs is posted to discuss the meaning with them etc.

    But I looove this band hehe :)

    That was what I wanted to say.

    General CommentThis is by far Stemm's best song! I heard them first at mayhem festival in 2009, but I think they sound better before they split up. Songs for the Incurable Heart is a work of art, and this song is its masterpiece.

    Anyway, this song to me has a strong meaning. When I was six, I learned that I never met my biological father. Then, at 13, I found out that I had been basically rejected as a son, and he was a bad man, doin drugs, alcoholic, part of a mob, and since then I've always had to be the strong one in a family where I share almost no relation to. And I always remember the hate I harbor for the man who's blood runs through my viens. I am a very big guy, and I guess he was too. It's almost a beautiful curse, and it feels like I get my strength from the hate inside. It also reminds me to be a better person than he ever was.

    thanks for reading!
