Background Story:

This song is about self-control in the midst of opposition and betrayal. It is dual-versed, both in first-person and in observation as the story transforms from describing the internal perspective of dealing with conflict versus the manifestation of allowing the “monster inside” to be born. Some typical imagery is used in order to further describe and relate to this transformation such as references to lunar influence, magic potions and physical change of form. Primarily, the underlying message is that the “Monster” we all have inside us is forced to be repressed based on the shackles of society. In reality, most of us wish that we could become that Monster upon choosing – being able to unleash at the injustices that torment and taunt us. In fact, it seems that we all envy the power, freedom and reckless abandon that is only allowed and described as the expected behavior of a “Monster”…

VERSE :

Darkened Heart

Cold as steel

Thing growing inside

Full Release

Crack the seal

You envy me!

Break these binds

Tear these chains

Cage opening wide

Sharpened Teeth

Evil Eyes

World fearing me

Chorus

I become the Monster

Unleash the power inside

When I become the Monster

That’s when you best go run and hide

Now I become the Monster

And I won’t warn you again

I become the Monster

And I am not your friend!

Whoa Oh, wa oh oh

Whoa Oh, wa oh oh

Whoa Oh, wa oh oh

Whoa Oh, wa oh oh

VERSE

Autumn moon within the sky

Casting forth a pale-red eye

Creature calls I can’t deny

Scary voices my-oh-my

Drink the potion, tonic sour

Transformation in the hour

Causing havoc ’til I’m done

Back to man before the sun

(Whoa Oh, wa oh oh)

(Whoa Oh, wa oh oh)

(Whoa Oh, wa oh oh)

FINAL VERSE

Darkened Heart

Cold as steel

Thing growing inside

Full Release

What I feel

You envy me

Break these binds

Tear these chains

Cage opening wide

Sharpened Teeth

Evil Eyes

World fearing me

Full Release

What I feel

You envy me

Full Release

What I feel

You envy me

I become the monster

I become the monster

I become the monster

I be-come….. MONSTER!
