Running through this garden of you

Trying to pick the right rose

My blood runs deep along these roads

From thorns hidden in beauty

The glare of the sun that makes it hard to breathe

The faults that no one believes

The expectations I reach

Only to reach higher

I can't acquire what you want from me

I'm struggling

Help me

A monster's out to get me

Chasing through my dreams

No hands seem to reach for me

I guess I'm all alone

In a darkness with a monster

I call this my home

And when I fall to my knees

I fall asleep

And coming after me

A monster needs to eat

So I work harder

And struggle faster

Under the grip of reality

Nothing's going to come of me

A stain on society

That's what you've made of me

How much do I mean to you?

You crush my dreams pretty quick for that

Hold on, lemme tap back to that

'Cause I'm sick of wasting my time like that

I can't seem to let you go though

So I continue to reach my limits

Of what you want from me.

A monster's out to get me

Chasing through my dreams

No hands seem to reach for me

I guess I'm all alone

In a darkness with a monster

I call this my home

And when I fall to my knees

I fall asleep

And coming after me

A monster needs to eat

I'm scared and abused by the power of you

I can't get past the lies you've created

Listening to your silent words

Your intentions get so much clearer

I let you past the guard I upheld

All the lies were jaded and flawed

I looked past them all

Onto the mask that covered them

The monster that it hides

Was too far from sight

All I knew was shattered by you

None of that mattered to you

A single touch

A single piece

Let me hold onto my hope

A monster's out to get me

Chasing through my dreams

Yes, a monster is what haunts me

Chilling my bones and limiting my steps

A monster's out to get me

That monster is you.
