"The Beast in Me" as written by and Nicholas Orain Lowe....
The beast in me
Is caged by frail and fragile bonds
Restless by day
And by night, rants and rages at the stars
God help, the beast in me
The beast in me
Has had to learn to live with pain
And how to shelter from the rain
And in the twinkling of an eye
Might have to be restrained
God help the beast in me

Sometimes
It tries to kid me that it's just a teddy bear
Or even somehow managed
To vanish in the air
And that is when I must beware
Of the beast in me
That everybody knows
They've seen him out dressed in my clothes
Patently unclear
If it's New York or New Year
God help the beast in me
The beast in me

    My InterpretationClearly a song about addiction. His addict is of course the Beast, caged in frail and fragile bonds. Addicts are two people - the sane and the insane inhabiting the same body. The addict -- the insane, the Beast -- is the more cunning and clever of the two, pretending to be a Teddy Bear or to have disappeared entirely, but in the twinkling of any eye he is loose, acting out again and in need of restraint. The the Beast is our injured self who has had to learn to live with pain and to shelter from the rain. He is clearly deserving and in need of God's help.
