Sometimes at night I look up at the sky

I see my future and it’s not so bright

And it’s cold and bleak

And dark and deep

The monsters are all around me


Sometimes at night I curl up in a ball

And I feel so small

As I wait for the call

That my family’s gone and I’m all alone

That I’ve lost my friends and I’ve lost my home

 I start to feel I should give up hope

So I turn off my phone

But the monsters are still around me


Sometimes at night I try to fight

The monsters that are ever in my sight

And I try to find the shining light

But I realize the monsters are my everyday life

So I close my eyes

I try to sleep

For with sleep comes relief


Should I give in

Shall I give them a home

So, they can desecrate my body and pick at my bones


The monsters try to fight their way in

With all their fear and all their sin

They try to force me to give in

But I won’t let them

Not tonight
