"Menace" as written by and Brendan Kyle Barone....
Someday, in this dark place
One will step into the light
And expose you for what you really are

Why am I the one who just keeps on running
Why am I surrounded by shadows of my doubt?
I search for some sort of solace
But I am a man with no light to guide me out

Why must I run
Why must I hide
I'd rather be living in hell
Than never have lived with nothing to tell

So when you end up on your own
With just your pillow to hold tight
Please know
There's no reason to be afraid
Cause if they black out the sun
And your blood turns to dust
I'll follow you into your grave

A menace a monster
The thing that haunts your dreams
A nightmare, my comfort
I'll thrive on all your tears

I don't know what you take me for

Why must I run
Why must I hide
I'd rather be living in hell
Than never have lived alone

So when you end up on your own
With just your pillow to hold tight
Please know
'Cause if they black out the sun
And your blood turns to dust
I'll follow you into your grave

So when you're shattered and you're broke
With out someone to hold on to
Just know I'll always be there close behind
And if you're able to love
When's all said and done
Than I swear well all be fine

This won't be my last breath
You can't take my life away

You're just a worthless
Good for nothing fuck

Good for nothing fuck

Why must I run
Why must I hide
I'd rather be living in hell
Than never have lived alone

So when you end up on your own
With just your pillow to hold tight
Please know
There's no reason to be afraid
'Cause if they black out the sun
And your blood turns to dust
I'll follow you into your grave

So when you're shattered and you're broke
With out someone to hold on to
Just know I'll always be close there behind
And if you're able to love
When's all said and done
Than I swear well all be fine

    General CommentI believe that those is about a guy who has a love/hate relationship with his special someone. "So when you're shattered and you're broke without someone to hold on to just know ill always be there close behind" he will always be there for her no matter what. "I'll thrive on all your tears" with her misery comes his happiness.

    My OpinionI think this could be aplicable for a free relationship, where one part of them don't want to tell to the world that they are together, so he/she is there for her/him even if they don't supposed to, so here there someone is being used for nothing in particular, "I don't know, why you take me for",

    General CommentI just saw Crown the Empire and they were amazing. And I love the contrast in this song. It's so dark with such beautiful emotions behind it. I agree the way I translate this song is that there's a love hate relationship there. I think she hurt him and he hates her for that but yet he loves her so much that he can't live without her and will follow her into her grave. And even though he wants her to feel the pain that he feels he'll always love her and be there waiting for her whether she finds new love or not. Just my opinion. I think we've all been there at one point and the feeling sucks. If you find yourself this way don't lose hope no matter how much it hurts. Hold onto your loved ones and don't give up on yourself.
