Imagine Dragons – Monster lyrics

Ever since I could remember,
Everything inside of me,
Just wanted to fit in (oh oh oh oh)
I was never one for pretenders,
Everything I tried to be,
Just wouldn't settle in (oh oh oh oh)


If I told you what I was,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would you be scared
?
I get the feeling just because,
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
If this problem lies in me


I'm only a man with a candle to guide me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger
.

Can I clear my conscience,
If I'm different from the rest,
Do I have to run and hide? (oh oh oh oh)
I never said that I want this,
This burden came to me,
And it's made it's home inside (oh oh oh oh)


If I told you what I was,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would you be scared?
I get the feeling just because,
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
If this problem lies in me

I'm only a man with a candle to guide me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.

I'm only a man with a candle to guide me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.

    I think this song is about how social rejection can feel like a monster is eating up your insides and how the dark it can get when you don't seek help. Let's be honest all of us who sought out this song have felt how they describe it feeling.
    Not because we have been socially rejected but because we have unique weights weighing us down. This song probably that we each have our own monster that drags us down.
