Monster - Imagine Dragons

The Experience: Fighting. According to Imagine Dragons, "the song fit perfectly with the tone and visuals" of Chair's new video game Infinity Blade III. And Monster is about fighting... against yourself.

Music Video:
Still waiting.

My Take:
We all dream of being heroes. And there is a hero inside every one of us. The problem is there is a monster too. And it's not easy "take a stand to escape what's inside me." It's not easy to see your own defects and limits... and go after them. It feels like you're taking a stand against yourself. But it's the only way to help your hero come out on top.

Ask Yourself:
Do you pretend that you don't have any problems? That you're already the perfect hero?

LYRICS:

Everything inside of me,
Just wanted to fit in (oh oh oh oh)
I was never one for pretenders,
Everything I tried to be,
Just wouldn't settle in (oh oh oh oh)

If I told you what I was,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would you be scared?
I get the feeling just because,
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
If this problem lies in me

I'm only a man with a chamber who's got me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.

Can I clear my conscience,
If I'm different from the rest,
Do I have to run and hide? (oh oh oh oh)
I never said that I want this,
This burden came to me,
And it's made it's home inside (oh oh oh oh)

If I told you what I was,
Would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous,
Would you be scared?
I get the feeling just because,
Everything I touch isn't dark enough
If this problem lies in me

I'm only a man with a chamber who's got me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.

I'm only a man with a chamber who's got me,
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I've turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.
