"Imaginary (Monsters)" as written by Amy Lee, Ben Moody and David Hodges....
I linger in the doorway
Of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
Let me stay
Where the wind will whisper to me
Where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

Don't say I'm out of touch
With this rampant chaos your reality
I know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
The nightmare I built my own world to escape

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
Cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
Oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
The goddess of imaginary light

    General CommentThis song isn't REALLY called "Imaginary (Monsters)" (I am almost positive). It's one of the two demo versions of Imaginary. And yes, it is very very awesome, one of my favorite songs ever.

    General Commentthis song to me means that a person who cannot handle there life has created a different world that they can escape to and has even considered commiting suicide to escape,

    General CommentI looove this version of Imaginary!! It seems less edited than the one on Fallen. Not to say I don't like the Fallen version though, Imaginary is my favorite song... ever. I think the different verse gives the song a darker flavor.

    General Commentlyric correction:

    You can leave the world you live in
    'Cause inside you may not remember
    That something waits for you to breathe again

    love it to bits, in some ways I think it's better than the Fallen version, but I think I like the original EP version the best

    copy this into your browser address thingy and hit enter

    a black page click the mouse somewhere towards the top and highlight thw whole page the lyrics will appear

    the reason the lyrics are in black was because there used to be a picture there but this site is no longer updated

    evboard.com/oldsite/lyrics/ all the the lyrics at this site are 100% correct they have been checked and double checked by the band

    General Commentbinni was right. It isn't 'You can leave the world you live in, suicide." It's "You can leave the world you live in, cause inside you may not remember".
