Don’t fear the monsters under your bed
For they are poorly hid
They stand out and demand to win
But they are nothing compared to them.
The monsters you should really fear
Are better hidden and make you shed more tears
They’re always talking and never quiet
Always screaming but ever silent.
You can’t see them but boy are they there
Voicing their opinions that they know you’ll hear
And after a while you begin to believe their poisoned leers
Oh do you see now?
How these monsters are so much worse than the monsters under the bed?
Maybe I should give you more instead.
Their words like sharp knives
Open wounds from long forgotten lives
Put you down and rarely up
They can break you down and make you give up
You can try ignore them and wish them away
Oh but baby don’t you fool yourself
Into believing they they have left
For they are just waiting for when you’re at your lowest
To strike and spread their poison
My mommy always sweared to protect me from the monsters under my bed.
Oh but mommy doesn’t know those monsters were my dearest friends
And that they have long since fled.
Because they feared the monsters that are better hid.
Mommy you warned me of those monsters hidden under my bed,
But mommy dearest I think you forgot
To warn me of the ones that scream in my head.
Oh I miss the poor little monsters under my bed
But how they hated the ones roaring in my head.
So they have long since fled
And left me with these monsters instead.
