"le monster" as written by Michael Grace Jr, Darren Amadio, Andrea Vaughn, Gilbert Abad and Todd Karasik....
He looks like rain. He is not mine. I am indoors. I think he crashed the car. I flew through the glass. I guess when it rains it pours. The streets were crawling with vampires, because after your shelf life expires... You're not a kid, you're a monster, monster, monster. Singing "la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la" until the fin do monde. I miss my friends and I want to go home and I am tired of taking pills to make me feel better. I spent five years in the infirmary but he never sent me letters. He only sent me dirty polaroids. "You're not fucked up, you're beautiful" is what I dreamed he said. While I played with myself in the hospital bed. The halls were crawling with vampires, because after your shelf life expires... You're not a kid, you're a monster, monster, monster. Singing "la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la" until the fin do monde. I miss my friends and I want to go home and I am tired of taking pills to make me feel better. I spent five years in the infirmary but he never sent me letters. He only sent me dirty polaroids. I need something warm.

    General CommentLove this song, but having some trouble really understanding the meaning of it. A car crash, check. Dirty polaroids, hmm? She's obviously somewhat in love with him(?) ("You're not fucked up, you're beautiful" is what I dreamed he said.), or maybe she is dreaming like some people think they do while in a coma? Please help :)

    General CommentFor a long time, I thought the Polaroids were "dirty" because they were old, dusty, scratched, etc. But I think now that they're probably "dirty" in the sexually explicit sense. Maybe I'm just slow for catching onto that, but it changes the tone of the song to me fairly drastically. Before, I didn't really understand why this guy would send her old photographs -- but if he sends her sexual pictures (of himself, presumably), it's clear to me that he wants something different out of her than she wants from him. She wants letters from him while she's in the hospital, but he doesn't think to send them. She's probably in love with him, but either he doesn't reciprocate or he doesn't communicate his feelings well -- maybe he just doesn't understand that she wants letters.

    I don't have much else to add. I think this is a mostly straight-forward narrative. "I miss my friends and I want to go home and I am tired of taking pills to make me feel better" -- pretty literal.
