Monster

Let's talk about life and business

Everything I could remember

Paved from skeletons of coldest griefs of my life
Please don’t get too closed

Little by little
I’m turning into a monster
It’s easy
Because I know it’s me
Would you be scared?
But this monster keeps me…
Stronger and stronger

Now, I am more hungry for battles
I don’t care about the bloodshed
Would you be scared?
I never felt this good
I see this blinding light across my sight
Because of this monster

Should You be scared?
You should not…
Because this monster will safeguard everything he cares
