Monster

Did I finally make you draw the line, Is this where it really ends

Did my time bomb of truth detonate to early, Devastating your concept of friends

 

I read every letter of every word, Of every note that you ever sent

Just an hour ago and it took forever, Now tell me was that time well spent

 

You created me don’t walk away from me, I’m your monster

Sorry that I couldn’t turn out to be, Just exactly what you wanted

When you close your eyes and I’m all you see, It’s me your monster

You’ll not escape me, belay me, It’s too late to save me

 

Have I become too much, Have I gone too far

Or am I not far enough because you’re still reminded, Of who you really are

 

Did I love too much, Or was I just another jar

On your collection's shelf, mangled hearts left still beating, But you never planned for this…

 

You told me I had you regardless, what when or where

Yeah I’ve re-read notes, I’m sure you, wish you could tear

Up and apart, like you did with our love

A love, I undeniably had zero control of

Granted every sense of innocence imaginable

Like did I give you all I could to make it manageable

Just wanted everything to be more tangible

But now you see me and you crumble cause you’re frangible

You had me tangled in your web of circumstance and I tried

To keep a love alive you said would never die

You’re just a victim of a spell you wish you’d never conjured

You did it now deal with it ‘cause I’m your monster

 

Have I bled too much, Revealed too big a scar

Unfortunate truth, An ugly reminder of who you really are… Does it…

Burn… Did I take it all too far

Onslaught of sound… there’s no hiding now, guess you never planned for this

 

You created me don’t walk away from me, I’m your monster

Sorry that I couldn’t turn out to be, Just exactly what wanted

When you close your eyes and I’m all you see, It’s me your monster

You’ll not escape me, belay me, It’s too late to save me
