a new song, sort of in the rough

---the monster

you know im gonna get here eventually
i'm gonna crawl in under your skin
follow you through an empty house in a waking dream
stand behind you in the mirror looking in
im the monster
i can't help how i feel
im the monster
you said our love was real
and you know im gonna write your name on every wall
and you know im gonna step out of the way when you stumble and fall
ill be hiding in your closet all night long
for that moment when you slip into my song
and when you say there's something in under your bed
or crazy voices playing tricks in your head
or you hear something in the attic rattling away
well you better get down on your knees to pray
in the darkness and in the distance i laid frozen
a prisoner of my own indecision
but now that ive arisen, nothing can contain me
i'm gonna walk to you across this roaring sea
and who's that crawling out of the well
in your television in some desolate ski resort hotel
walking down the hallway now, you can hear the door creak
did you miss me, am I the one you seek?
here we are now alone at last
like old love after it's been outcast
there it lays upon the table, a cold and foreign thing
to tear apart and begin again
