Hear me well, and be warned,

Monsters are around.

Their hearts are cold, their morals torn.

Monsters are around.

Mom tells me to stop being foolish.

I'm not; Monsters are around.

Their intentions are evil, faces ghoulish.

Monsters are around.

I see them look, feel their stares.

Can't you see? Monsters are around.

Unless you want to be victim, avoid their glare.

Monsters are around.

They take your will, wear it thin.

Don't let them. Monsters are around.

They hide your soul and house your skin.

Monsters are around.

They say cruel things, make people cry.

Hush, Monsters are around.

I didn't get so say goodbye.

Monsters are around.

Along with us, they like to blend.

Look, Monsters are around.

Avoid them, so your heart-wounds mend.

Monsters are around.

Search real hard, look for your soul.

It's somewhere. Monsters are around.

They've stolen it, so you can't be whole.

Monsters are around.

I'll look too, get you back on track.

I'll look harder. Monsters are around.

All I want is the real you back.

Monsters are around.

Let me help, can't you see?

Monsters are around.

They've taken you, now they want me.

Monsters are around.

They'll give you back for one small price.

I can pay. Monsters are around.

They want me for sacrifice.

Monsters are around.

Flash a knife, let it flood.

Deeper, Monsters are around.

Slash my flesh, take my blood!

Monsters are around.

They've given you back, returned your soul.

They're retreating! Monsters are around.

And now I have reached my goal.

Monsters are around.

You've been you all along though?

But what about the Monsters?

That was you that let those cruel words flow?

There aren't any monsters?

There weren't any monsters, were there?

Only you.
