Who do you think you are?
And what have you become?
I have barely recognized your face for so long.
What do you think they see?
And what have you portrayed?
I can barely recognize your face.

It started with just a taste.
It was just a game.
But you bought your lies
with the soul you once had.
You've created a monster.
A modern day Jekyll and Hyde.
You're not the same as you once were.
Still not sure you're even inside.
Do you even know your own name now?

Satisfy or be satisfied.
Eat it up now
'cause you've dug yourself in too deep.
Does it taste good? Do they taste good?
Was it worth it? Are they worth it now?

You've created a monster.
OH GOD WHAT HAVE WE DONE?!
We've created a monster.

Look at what you've become.
A monster.

    General Commenti think this song is about when you make someone out into something they're not, and it gets to their head and they take it wayyy over-board and start totally transforming into a "monster"

    General Commentlike most (metalcore, hardcore, grundgecore), whatever you want to call it I believe its the result of a breakup. What relationships have come to today. Someone did him serious emotional harm. Nearly every style of music has embraced the concept and, just like people, express it differently. You have your emo, "oh woose me, pitty me". drawing attention to yourself and all. Like i said, different people express it differently. I believe, in most cases, this is anger expressed towards the one once loved.

    its kinda cool actually. your getting to know the band a little more than you think when enjoying the music.
    +kudos for the post.

    Song MeaningC'mon guys, really?

    This song is obviously about people who change in order to pursue something (often material or vain, like success, girlz, etc.) and sellout their values, morals and personality.

    It's about people who change ("cannot recogize your face anymore") who they are because of those things and become vain persons without the morals and/or limits which they once had, thus becoming a "monster".

    The lyricist asks if it was worthy, if it tastes good now that they have changed. So, giving up who you were was worth the benefits? Are you so great now? Are those things you wanted so bad that good as you thought? The question echoes unanswered (most probably not - and if it was worth it, then that is exactly what you really are, and those morals never belonged to you anyway, but if you were a truly "good" person you'll certainly go back to who you once were, probably through salvation, which is a light that can guide you to your real self again and connect you with God).

    I's about giving in to ambition and vanity, which then later can reveal a mistake or just reveal to yourself who you are, or who you've become.

    when I first got the lyrics I was very impressed with them. Andy is a real good lyricist, his lyrics are very deep and also aestethically perfect in the songs, as well as very well sung.

    Congrats Plea for Purging!!

    General CommentI think it's about someone who was once close to Christ, but gave in to worldly pleasures and has become lost.
