Skillet – Monster lyrics

[Verse:]
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
.

[Chorus:]
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, I feel like a monster! I, I feel like a monster!

[Verse 2:]
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!

[Chorus:]
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 it deep within, it's just beneath the skin,
I must confess that I feel like a monster!
I, I feel like a monster!
I, I feel like a monster!

[Hook:]
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,
Maybe it's inside of me.
Stop this monster!

[Bridge:]
I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin,
I must confess that
I feel like a monster!

[Chorus:]
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun.
I must confess that I feel like a monster!
I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin,
I must confess that I feel like a monster!

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

I, I feel like a monster.
I, I feel like a monster.
I, I feel like a monster.
I, I feel like a monster.

    I think it means someone who is hiding a bad part to themselves and they don't want anyone to see this or they could be trying to run away from insanity that is over coming them and nobody is trying to help them. They could possibly need to grasp something that is important to them but they keep on hurting the others. Then again I always think this song is like someone is portrayed as scary and dark while they are actually nice and just trying to fit in. If you've seen hetalia, Russia, then you'll know what I mean.

    The monster in the song is that secret sin that only we know about. That thing that whatever it is p***, lies, food, ect. It is starting to control us not the other way around. When you get to the point that you want to change you can't because it has taken control like an addiction and the only way out is to expose it for what it is a monster.

    Sounds like someone needs some deliverance. If this is how you feel, then you need to draw near to god and learn what it's like to enjoy the fruit of the spirit. We are all new creatures in christ when we receive him. If a monster is still within you, you need to talk with someone who can help you learn the truth about what being spiritual is. The truth is that the enemy is defeated and you are able to overcome.

    I hsave been saved and this song helps me look at myself in the mirror everyday I wake up. I know that god is with me and his son died for me, but I still feel the monster that is deep inside me. The thing this song helps me realize is that I don't have to give in and with god's help I can control how I am. I'm also happy that because of the monster the is with in me, that god has blessed me with (i know that sounds stupid but it's true) that I can pursue my dream of wrestling and that when the time comes god will allow me to let go then calm me down and cage the beast again.
