The Monster Is Loose

I've lived my life in a cage
Freedom spit in my face
It was such a disgrace
And I was lonely
Burned down and empty
Desperate

I had my head in a noose
I had nothing to lose
Had enough of abuse
So now I'm dangerous
Hate's so contagious
It owns us

I'm angry
I'm raging
I'm breaking through the pain

The monster's loose
And now you know the truth
Tell me can you feel it
As you hit the wall
The monster's loose
And now you have to choose
And prove that you can take it
To the top before you fall

I've walked a slippery road
With revenge in my soul

Through the wind and the cold
With no protection
Just one direction
Destruction

I've paid for all my mistakes
Taken all I can take
Till I'm ready to break
Life can be viscious
It's so outrageous
It breaks us

I'm bleeding
Still breathing
I'm tearin' through these chains

The monster's loose
And now you know the truth
Tell me can you feel it
As you hit the wall
The monster's loose
And now you have to choose
And prove that you can take it
To the top and never fall

I've lived a thousand years in darkness
Banished all alone
Inside my mind with just my madness
Behind these walls of stone
I was falling apart at the seams
Holding my breath just to breathe
Tasted the sting of my tears
I was waking up stuck in a dream
Ran out of air couldn't scream
Wasted away by my fears

The monster's loose
And now you know the truth
Tell me can you feel it
As you hit the wall
The monster's loose
And now you have to choose
And prove that you can take it
To the top and never fall
The monster's loose
You've lost your last excuse
Now show me that you got it
Even if you crawl
The monster's loose
This game is win or lose
The time has come to do it
And show the world you want it all
