SKILLET


Monster Lyrics

The secret side of me, I 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 scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls
It comes awake and I can't control it
Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head
Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

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

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?

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

It's hiding 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

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've gotta lose control, he 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

@Jamie The bible itself does not say Christ all over it does it? We know the message it holds. The same for a band. To know its message. You don't need one word plastered to every song. If you require that one word in every song. You have then lost the meaning.

In this song, the speaker (singer) is struggling with a temptation (demon or monster). The speaker doesn't know where to look for help. It is a call for us to show the grace of Jesus to those that are hopeless.

I believe this song refers to monster and means the wicked thoughts and actions that are in your head.ex. when you regret waht you said. No physical form, but it is pure wickedness that you can confes

They are an AMAZING band! This song explains how he feels like a monster. He's either violent, or he just doesn't feel human. ROCK ON SKILLET!

Okay, I know you guys keep saying it's about Jesus saving you from something evil or stuff like that, and I respect that. My thoughts though is that the song means someone is starting to act more like a monster (Abusive and angry) and they start to realize it and become afraid of what they're doing. But that's just me.

I don't see where this is a Christian song at All! It's supposed to be rock but it sounds nothing like rock at all. Casting crowns and hillsong is actually Christian rock and actually says something about God.
