"Monster" as written by Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford, Edward James Milton Dwane, Benjamin Walter David Lovett and Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall....
So we were up
Throwin' dice in the dark
I saw you late, last night, come to harm
I saw you dance in the devil's arms

The night kept coming
Really nothing I could do
Eyes with a fire, unquenched, by peace
Curse the beauty, curse the queen

So we come
To a place of no return
Yours is the face, that makes my body burn
And here is the name that our sons will learn
Curse the beauty, curse the queen
Curse the beauty, leave me

So when you're weak
When you are on your knees
I'll do my best, with the time, that's left
Sworn with your spirit, you're fully fleshed

So fuck your dreams
And don't you pick at our seams
I'll turn into a monster for you, If you pay me enough
None of this counts, if you do, cloud up

So we come
To a place of no return
Yours is the face, which makes my body burn
And here is the name, that our sons will learn
Curse the beauty, curse the queen
Curse the beauty, leave me

    General CommentI think it's about gambling in general.

    General CommentTo me, it's about watching a loved one lose themselves to drugs on a night out. "Unquenched by piece" could mean a runaway train of worldly or sinful ways. The partner losing their mind in a sense, showing weakness, unable to rationalize or utilize the peace Within. "Leave me" could be giving up on the partner or friend. Quite sad from this perspective...
