I've been livin' my life in a cage, freedom spits in my face
It was such a disgrace and I was lonely
And feelin' empty, desperate

I had my head in a noose, I had nothing to loose
Had enough of abuse and now, Im dangerous
Hateful, contagious, it haunts us

Im angry, Im ragin', Im breakin' through the pain

The monster is loose and now, you know the truth
Tell me can you feel it as you hit the wall
The monster is loose and now, you have to choose
And prove that you can take it to the top before you fall

I've walked a slippery road, felt a twitch in my soul
Through the wind and the cold with no protection
Just one direction, destruction

I've paid for all my mistakes, takin' all I can take
'Til Im ready to break, Im feeling vicious
And so, outrageous, it breaks us

Im bleedin', still breathin', Im tearin' through these chains

The monster is loose and now, you know the truth
Tell me can you feel it as you hit the wall
The monster is loose and now, you have to choose
And prove that you can take it to the top and never fall

I've lived a thousand years in darkness
Banished all alone
Inside my mind with just my madness
Behind these walls of stone

I was falling apart at the seams
Holding my breath just to breathe
Tasted the sting of my tears

I was wakin' up stuck in a dream
Ran out of air, couldn't scream
Wasted away by my fears

The monster is loose and now, you know the truth
Tell me can you feel it as you hit the wall
The monster is loose and now, you have to choose
And prove that you can take it to the top and never fall

The monster is loose, you've lost your last excuse
Now, show me that you got it even when you crawl
The monster is loose, this game is win or loose
Sometimes you gotta do it and show the world you want it all

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
