Monster inside you​

I keep pushing through this mortal pain

That started when my life began

At least as I began my second round

I felt it as my mind collapsed

This broken brain, it couldn't last

Each nightmare with a terrorizing sound

You try to take away this thing

That forgives me of my suffering

Because you couldn't make it on your own

But each angry word that I can sing

It gives to me my everything

The purpose of a man never alone

I'll never be what you want me to be

I'll never be the monster inside you

Just slit my throat and watch how I bleed

I'll never be the monster inside you

I suffer in this mortal shell

Day by day, a living hell

At least I find a peace that you have failed

In taking my immortal name

Knowing you can't say the same

My soul, which has never been for sale

Because the secret here, I'll lay it out

Is that I've never had a doubt

That I can do whatever I need to

You can't take my soul, I'll tell you why

I sold it long ago so I

Would never have the burden that you do

I'll never be what you want me to be

I'll never be the monster inside you

Just slit my throat and watch how I bleed

I'll never be the monster inside you

Take a look at what's inside your mind

It was right there inside you the whole time

Open your eyes (Open your eyes)

I'll never be what you want me to be

I'll never be the monster inside you

Just slit my throat and watch how I bleed

I'll never be the monster inside you

I'll never be what you want me to be

I'll never be the monster inside you

Just slit my throat and watch how I bleed

I'll never be the monster inside you
