Monster in My Head

I'm a kitten and a flower
I don't want no fame or power
I just want to smell the grass and feel the sun
I can't stand the sight of bleeding
I can't stand the sound of screaming
And I didn't do the things they say I done.

But there's a monster in my head.
There's a monster in my head.
There's a monster in my head,
And he thinks it's lots of fun.

It's an evil without color
It's a thing that harms its mother
It's a laughing boy who'd burn a crippled dog
It needs pain to fill the yearning
It needs blood to cool the burning
It needs screams to find a way out of the fog

'Cause there's a monster in my head.
There's a monster in my head.
There's a monster in my head,
And he don't see nothing wrong.

If I'm quiet as a spirit
It won't know that I'm here with it
If it knows I'm here it makes me go away
I don't like the things we're seeing
I don't like the thing we're being
I can't stop us and I know I'll have to pay.

Not the monster in my head.
There's a monster in my head.
There's a monster in my head,
And it wants to go and play.

I'm a kitten and a flower
I don't want no fame or power
I just want to smell the grass and feel the sun
I can't stand the sight of bleeding
I can't stand the sound of screaming
And I didn't do the things they say I done.

But there's a monster in my head.
There's a monster in my head.
I've got a monster in my head.
And it's having all the fun.

There's a monster in my head
There's a monster in my head
We've all got monsters in our heads.
And the monsters, they keep havin' all the fun.
