You were my conscience
So solid, now you're like water
And we started drowning
Not like we'd sink any farther
But I let my heart go
It's somewhere down at the bottom
But I'll get a new one
And come back for the hope that you've stolen

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world... from turning into a monster
Eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we survived
Now that you're gone
The world is ours

I'm only human
I've got a skeleton in me
But I'm not the villain
Despite what you're always preaching
Call me a traitor
I'm just collecting your victims
And there getting stronger
I hear them calling
(Calling, calling)

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world... from turning into a monster
Eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we survived
Now that you're gone
The world is ours

When you find a strength and solutions
But I like the tension
And not always knowing the answers
Well you're gonna lose it... You're gonna lose it

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world... from turning into a monster
Eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we survived
Now that you're gone
The world

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world... from turning into a monster
Eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we survived
Now that you're gone
The world is ours

    I think it means that she has someone she loves and she would make sure that all the evil in the world would be gone for them but in the end it was him that was the evil. ( the part that says " now that ur gone the world is ours" )

    Its a song about her being saved and loosing her empty black heart and leaving it at the bottom of the water , she gets a new one with the holy spirit inside and she's talking about how shes gonna stop the world from becoming bad and filthy she's gonna show everyone the hope that she found and share the word

    I think "monster" is telling people that the world can be cruel, evil, and even scary... Somewhat like a monster. But we have to try our hardest and protect ourselves from this 'monster' so that in the end we will win.

    The third verse should be "well you thought of straight desolutions" instead of "when you find a strength and solutions" which is absolutely wrong. D:

    I luuurve it, exept verse 3 goes "When, you've got a straightened solution, I like the tension. Not always knowing the answer, you're gonna loose it, you're gonna loose it!"
    For some reason, it won't let me change it, oh well (:
