I have monsters inside me
they gnaw at my soul
they conquer my being
and swallow me whole

They take all compassion
They take my concern
They spit fire inside me
And laugh as I burn

I tried to fight the monsters,
but instead became their slave
they held me in their grasp until
they led me to my grave

I had monsters inside me
they defeated my soul
they took my life
before it was my time to go
