monster lyrics – paramore

“monster”

you were my conscience, so solid, now you’re like water
and we started drowning, not like we’d sink any further
but i let my heart go, it’s somewhere down at the bottom
but i’ll get a new one and come back for the hope that you’ve stolen

i’ll stop the whole world, i’ll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster and eating us alive
don’t you ever wonder how we survive?
well now that you’re gone, the world is ours

i’m only human, i’ve got a skeleton in me
but i’m not the villain, despite what you’re always preaching.
call me a traitor, i’m just collecting your victims
and they’re getting stronger
i hear them calling.

i’ll stop the whole world, i’ll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster, and eating us alive
don’t you ever wonder how we survive?
well now that you’re gone, the world is ours

well you find your strength in solution
but i liked the tension
and not always knowing the answers
but you’re gonna lose it, you’re gonna lose it

i’ll stop the whole world, i’ll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster, and eating us alive
don’t you ever wonder how we survive?
well now that you’re gone, the world…

i’ll stop the whole world, i’ll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster, eating us alive
don’t you ever wonder how we survive?
now that you’re gone, the world is ours.
