Dirty Great Monster Lyrics

by Duran Duran

There's a dirty great monster in this house
We pretend that it's not there
And there's no escape from its grip
But nobody seems to care

Do you ever wonder
About the days when we were straight?
But daddy got the hunger
So much to hide, we learn to lie

So watch yourself in the hallway
You're not supposed to know
'Cause we're all afraid of each other
We're the victims in this show

Well, do you ever wonder
About the days when we were straight?
When daddy got the hunger
Too much to hide, we learn to lie

Silently outnumbered
We made mistakes when we were straight
Now we're all going under
Oh, oh, so with a sigh we say goodbye
