Asking Alexandria – Creature lyrics

Deep in the shadows I'm fighting a battle
The creature wants me screaming, screaming
I think I'm losing, tired of choosing, I'm slipping down
I can't stop screaming, screaming

I'm living a lie, there's a creature hiding inside of me
Black as the night with a cold dead heart and a lust for sin
So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from the world
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too

I can't just turn to the menace I've clung to
The creature wants me screaming, screaming
I can't determine, I'm sure that it's hell bent on breaking out and
Hearing you screaming, screaming

I'm living a lie, there's a creature hiding inside of me
Black as the night with a cold dead heart and a lust for sin
So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from the world
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too

So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from the world
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too

I can't hold back. (x3)

So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from you
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too

So I shut it out, I bottle up, I hide it from the world
If I let it out I don't know what I'll do
There's a creature inside of you too

    Danny is referring to his past addictions that's he's been trying to conquer. The "creature" is the call to go back to using again. If he let's it out (relapses) he's isn't sure what will happen to him. He can't turn to the menace because he knows that his addiction is powerful and if he gives in it's going to destroy him, and possibly the band itself. He hides it from everyone because he didn't want to admit he had a problem. When he says he feels it trying to break out it means that he's tempted to relapse. He also says there's a creature inside us too, meaning that we're no better than him, as we all have our addictions.
