Monster Lyrics

the secret side of me
i never let you see
i keep it caged but i can't control it so stay away from me the beast
is ugly i feel the rage and i just can't hold it

it's scratchin on the walls
in the closet, in the halls
it comes awake and i can't control it
hidin under the bed
in my body, in my head
why won't somebody come and save me from this make it end

i feel it deep within
it's just beneath the skin
i must confess that i feel like a monster

i hate what i've become
the nightmare's just begun
i must confess that i feel like a monster

i feel like a monster

my secret side i keep
hid under lock and key
i keep it caged but i can't control it cause if i let him out
he'll tear me up, break me down
why won't somebody come and save me from this make it end

its hidin in the dark
its teeth are razor sharp
there's no escape for me
it wants my soul it wants my heart

no one can hear me scream
maybe its just a dream
or maybe its inside of me
stop this monster

On Skillet's Facebook page it says that "Life is full of challenges, and sometimes when you look deep into yourself, you can feel weighed down by sin and the ‘Monster’ that lives inside us all." I think this song is talking about sin and the old human nature, the "body of death" that tries to high-jack our lives and drive us away from the path that God wants us to be on.

ya the "monster" is sin, the way of Earth..which is bad

Well, Christians can't expect non-believers to see God in every song, just how non-believers can't expect Christians to keep God out of everything as they wish they would. Skillet is a Christian band, therefore, it is expected that a majority of their songs are about God, thus making them a Christian band. If you're interested in non-God Skillet songs, try "Should've When You Could've" or something like that. Also, lyrics are written to be taken however the reader wants to interpret them. If you want to fit God into everything then wonderful, and if you want to keep him out of everything, more power to you.

Oh and P.S., saying that Christians are ruining Skillet for you is completely ignorant, intolerant, and childish. That's like saying that non-Christians ruin non-Christian bands for me. It makes no sense. Christians who are "really into it" are what God commands Christians to be, and if you don't like it then tough. I'm not too fond of Atheists who are really into it and I have to deal with it every day. And, um, your opinion does not entitle you to tell anyone not to give theirs. You say that Comatose and Awake have nothing to do with God, fine, but no one has to shut up if they think it does. Try thinking before you post next time. Thanks.

Excellent response! The saying that ignorance is bliss is so very true!

I agree and nice first name :D

I still can't see this as the TDG "Animal I Have Become". If you actually listen to is, it sounds alot diffrent. Some of the lyrics may be similar though.

The theme is the same. The two songs say the same thing in different words, but yeah they sound different.

idk man, i think theyre totally different, one deals (i think bt dont hold me to it) with a drinking problem, and the other just deals with self conflict... but thats just me lol

i believe the meaning behind this song is that everyone is born with sin, everyone. Once you accept Christ sin wants to destroy even more and it tempts you, and sometimes there is a part of you that wants it but you know with your christian walk you cannot do that. So sin is the monster tempting you, and trying to break you down. Remember all things are possible through Christ, and temptation has no power over you

My Interpretation

This reminds me of my favorite quote from Martin Luther... "Simul justus et peccator"... Latin for “simultaneously righteous and sinner”... my translation... “Sinful by human nature but forgiven thru Christ.”

Dude why is there so much god shit on a lyrics defenition site!?

ulquiorracoyle: It's a Christian song. It inspires ppl and they're sharing. Problem?

i believe these are the correct lyrics:

The secret side of me, I'll never let you see. I keep it caged but I can't control it. So stay away from me, The beast is ugly. I feel the rage and I just can't hold it.

It's scratchin' on the walls, In the closet, in the halls. It comes awake and I can't control it. Hidin' under the bed, In my body, in my head. Why won't somebody come and save me from this Make it end.

I feel it deep within, It's just beneath the skin, I must confess that I feel like a monster.

I hate what I've become, The nightmare's just begun. I must confess that I feel like a monster.

I feel like a monster.

My secret side I keep, Hid under lock and key. I keep it caged but I can't control it. Cause if I let him out, He'll tear me up, break me down. Why won't somebody come and save me from this Make it end.

It's hidin in the dark, It's teeth are razor sharp, There's no escape for me, It wants my soul, it wants my heart.

No one can hear me scream, Maybe it's just a dream, Or maybe it's inside of me. Stop this monster.

I feel it deep within, It's just beneath the skin, I must confess that I feel like a monster. X3

I'm gonna lose control, It's something radical, I must confess that I feel like a monster. I, I feel like a monster. X4

anywho I love this song. and i basically think it's about how we fight within ourselves and how we all sort of have a "monster" inside of us and how don't want it win but it's always sort of there! [=

In my opinion this song is about escaping the world. If you watch the video ( youtube.com/watch ) at the beginning there are doctors 'helping' the people in the hospital. I interpreted the doctors as the world who seems to be helping us but are really dragging us down into their pit of evil. The 'patients' escape the grasp of the 'doctors' and try to get away. Throughout the video they are being chased by a SWAT team which represent how when you escape the world, it will chase you trying to bring you back. At the end of the video the 'patients' escaped the dark hallways of the hospital (the world) and into the light of day (God's love).

My Interpretation

Hadn't thought abotu it that way, but in a round about way it does make sense. Personally, I thought the music video was WAY too tame for what I had in my head. That's why I make up my own music videos in my head.

I think that the song is about the dark side that we all contain inside of us. The monster that we all try to cage and bury deep...But we can never truly contain it because it has to come out sometimes but if we do the monster will consume our hearts and tear us down.

My Interpretation

Double that

Reminds me of a cross between Three Days Grace's "Animal I Have Become" and Thousand Foot Krutch's "Favorite Disease".

I just wanna think it is about a Werewolf, its obvious xP but yeah if we investigate the lyrics we can find a lot of other meanings, but, i will leave it at werewolf, sounds better for me

Lol agreed

I second that. even in the day, werewolve's are known to be unstable mentally and emotionally.

I like to think it's about Naruto and his Nine-Tailed Chakra

I love skillet. i think this song is about the devil trying to get to him but he wont let it.

but i think in a way he lets the devil take him... he runs off with the chick in the end of the video
