There is a monster that stretches and grows
During each moment that's spent alone
It's shadowy and can be quite difficult to see

Rhythmic footsteps fill the emptiness that's left
Where butterflies once fluttered inside of your chest
No hope remains for denial or sleep
Once the monster has awakened and stirs in the deep...
