Take a good look at me now
Do you still recognize me
Am I so different inside
This world is trying to change me
And I admit I don't want to change with it
And I admit I can't go on like this anymore

Erase this monster I've become
Forgive me for all the damage done
It's not over
Say it's not over
I'm begging for mercy
I'm only the monster you made me

I'm better alone now
See I'm torn from my mistakes
And I stop believing that I could ever make things change
How much can I take
When I know that it hurts you
How long can I wait
When I can't go on like this anymore

Erase this monster I've become
Forgive me for all the damage done
It's not over
Say it's not over
I'm begging for mercy
I'm only the monster you made me

Because who I am
Isn't who I used to be
And I'm not invincible
I'm not indestructible
I'm only human
Can't you see
The beauty in me

Take a good look at me now
Can't you see I've changed

Erase this monster I've become
Forgive me for all the damage done
It's not over
Say it's not over
I'm begging for mercy
I'm only the monster you made me

Far away through the pain
I hear the angels calling
Far away through the pain
I see my demons falling

Far away through the pain
I hear the angels calling
Far away through the pain
I see my demons falling

Erase this
Erase this
Erase this monster you made mea

    This song reminds me of myself. See, i 'used' to be a cutter ('used' to because i've been trying to stop for almost year, but i last cut two months ago) and i used to have a lot of issues with my dad (issues: i.e. I hated him) so i wrote poetry, and in my poetry, i woud refer to myself as a 'monster of hate' or a 'monster of pain'. I'm getting over it now... Don't fight with my dad nearly as much, as hard, or as often... And, as i said, it's been to months since i last cut... So...

    This song reminds me of a friend of mine who is seeing a married man who she is in love with. She cannot let go of him and he sys he is leaving his wife, well so far that has not happened.

    A man and his true feelings for his girl. And understanding tha the hurt you feel you should always show it might work soon.

    I think this song is about someone who is noticing changes in himself that have been brought on by life and hes begging for someone to still love him even though he has changed
