Making Monsters
 
Monsters roam the city streets
skulking along the darkling path
looking for victims to soothe their wrath
Monsters roam the city streets
 
Skulking along the darkling path
a measure of moonlight guides the way
and outlines the scene in shades of gray
Skulking along the darkling path
 
A measure of moonlight guides the way
He spots me as I turn to flee
I flail and fall and wrench my knee
A measure of moonlight guides the way
 
He spots me as I turn to flee
I clench my teeth against the pain
my fists entangle in his mane
He spots me as I turn to flee
 
I clench my teeth against the pain
No time to second-guess my move
This thing will find Ive nothing to lose
I clench my teeth against the pain
 
No time to second-guess my move
Black rage replaces useless fears
and in its place new darkness rears
No time to second-guess my move
 
Black rage replaces useless fears
Ill fight until the end, I vow
use tooth and claw whos the monster now?
Black rage replaces useless fears
 
Monsters roam the city streets
skulking along the darkling path
looking for victims to soothe their wrath
Monsters roam the city streets
