Monster Lyrics - Skillet



Review The Song (13)


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 scratchin on the walls
In the closet, in the halls
It comes awake and I can't control it
Hidin 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

Its hidin in the dark
Its 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 its just a dream
Or maybe its 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
It's 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

Good, but old. | Reviewer: Raym0nd | 1/26/14

When i heard this song first on SmackDown vs. Raw 2010, i thught "hm...haven't i heard of this before?". The theme, the riffs, the vocals, everything seems as if i have listened to this kind of song a long time ago.

Turns out i compared the song to "Animal I Have Become" by Canadian rock band Three Days Grace, my favorite song on the SmackDown vs. Raw 2007 soundtrack. I tried listening to the two songs back to back and then i realized i was right, they do sound alike

The Verdict: Monster is a good song by one of my favorite Christain metal bands, Skillet. it just dosen't sound that original. Still, if you're into songs that talk about uncontrollable rage, this is a good song to add in your playlist.

Monster Skillet | Reviewer: anonymous | 10/21/13

I can't say how much I love this song! I deal with anger issues every single day of my life. I must confess Im not proud of it. I mean when i get really angry I bring out the darkness that is stored and locked away inside me. When I get angry the peoople around me get really scared of me and its not something I like to see. So I listen to this song because it really does apply to life!

really great song | Reviewer: anonymus 123 | 3/9/13

The best song i have ever heard.
Skillet is an awesome band.
I have still not found any their song that I don't like.
The song shows that everyone has darker side.
I listen this song every day.
(It even reminds me about vampires and werewolves in The Vampire Diaries)

monster feeling | Reviewer: ashamed person | 5/13/12

i love this song. I sometimes realize i get very angery that i pick up every thing in my way and smash it i also hurt peaple in my way. I feel like there is 2 worlds in my head and i go in the one that isn't the real world so i really don't pay atantion to what happens when i get angery. when i wake up(came to the real world) i see almost every thing demaged i feel like a monster; but the song makes me feel better.

Sin = Earthly Desire + Your Personal Demon (Monster) | Reviewer: Mr. Bubbles | 4/13/12

I've been battling with the monster inside of me ever since I was about 13. I got curious. Started looking at pornography like it was no big thing. Didn't really have parents that cared but now I'm facing the consequences. Later on in life (I'm 22 now)and I feel scarred. I know Jesus can take the pain away but it still gets to me. I have a beautiful fiance 3,000 miles away and it makes it that much more difficult dealing with loneliness so I try to fill the whole with my monster and I only get more pain. She even knows I have a monster inside of me.

I want to get better for her but it's hard because I want to leave this place. I know that even if I do leave my hometown to be with her I still won't be able to outrun the monster. It always comes back to haunt me. It's always there when I don't want it to be. It kills the spiritual relationship I have with Jesus Christ for my own carnal desire(s). You would never know I had an addiction by the way I look or act. Behind locked doors the beast comes out. Oh Father God, just make it end soon. Help heal me Christ my Lord. Amen.

me too!!! | Reviewer: shirly guest | 1/3/12

GO SKILLET! =D | Reviewer: Beckz | 10/30/11

@jk you have your own world so you don't have to face reality? so do i! i get really angry about a lot of things, money, people, and usually start getting snappy at everyone. i just like to dive into that imaginary world inside of my head. Anyways i love this song! It rocks socks (i know that saying is old XD)

Pfft. You lot make me lol. | Reviewer: Alexx | 10/19/11

Honestly? The people talking about how "Like, omg. I'm normally SUCH a nice person but when i'm mad i become a monster >: This song is like, so me. My inner monster is so vicious, grr." not only here but on other lyric sites and YouTube...

YOU GUYS ARE FUCKING PATHETIC.
I'm not sorry, cause I'm just speaking the truth here. You have no idea what its like to be a monster, you're just another little groupie trying to relate to a song they thinks sounds cool (which, it does. Mad props to Skillet).


You're just looking like posers, stfu already.

Song has a catchy beet | Reviewer: Jk | 5/7/11

This song made my life change. It starts with the first few words the secret side of me I never let you see, I was in my room heard that on the radio and through my tv remote at the wall and screamed because I have the secret side and its ok until something important comes up in my life I think those words to myself any time I get mad then bottle up the rest of the anger until it snaps, when it dose I do something really stupid and I usually end up hurting only me.. But the song dose not always work I feel like I'm going crazy sometimes and I act and dream my own world so I do not have to face reality.

Can relate to! | Reviewer: Krystal | 12/20/10

I am a nie kind hearted person but sometime I get so angry and it feels like I have turned into a Monster 'cause i end up hurting one of my friends!
This song helped me realize the inner monster I have and has reminded me that it will always be there but I can stop it rom coming out and causing me to hurt my friends.
I hope all those I have hurt and will forgive me.
I also hope people can get something out of this song.
Have a nice day!

This=my theme song | Reviewer: Ethan Wulffe | 12/2/10

Dude, this song's been playin in my head for hours. i've been havin a bad day, been real pissed... if i let it get to me it's liable i'll hurt someone again. it's happened before, it will happen again.

My Thoughts on Monster | Reviewer: Kelly Matthews | 2/15/10

We all have an inner struggle sometimes between virtue and vice. In the Bible, Paul said we need to 'die to the flesh'. Basically, put the monster in its place and do what's right. It's a great lesson and a killer song. I've seen Skillet play this one live and it rocks just as hard with an added bonus of crowd energy.

Awesome....sounds like me | Reviewer: Josh | 11/7/09

i know where he is coming from. I am a very nice and compassionate guy but I have a dark side. I have a anger issue all my life and on rare occasion that i let the 'monster' out of me and cause harm and i can not control myself.

It's an awesome song, one of my favorites!!!!!


(i take meds to control my 'monster' inside me)
