Just A Monster

A Song

Song

I want to reach out for the stars,
And wish for something better than this.
I'm wasting away and I'm afraid that,
I wont be here soon...

More afraid I am of myself.
What am I capable of?
I'm no good for anyone else.

I'm just a monster wrapped up in a pretty skin.
Just a freak, look how I laugh and pretend.
I don't deserve such nice things...
I should be here, I shouldn't live.
But what about how much I have to give...

I just want to reach for a star,
And grab hold of it, but it's so far.
If I could I wish for something better...
Wish for something better.

But I'm just a monster wrapped up in a pretty skin.
Just a freak, look how I laugh and pretend.
Why am I even here?
Am I just looking for my place?
Can't even stand to look at my face.
I don't belong here...
I don't belong here.

Yet, for some reason I can't help but dream,
Of a good place, a safe place...
A good place, a safe place.
But... I don't deserve to be here.
I don't deserve any help.
Why do I stand there?
I can't even save myself.

Look in the mirror and all I see,
Is pain and agony.
And for some reason I still dream.
For some reason I want to hope.

But... I'm just a monster wrapped up in a pretty skin.
I'm just a freak, look how I laugh and pretend.
What am I doing here? I don't even belong.
What did I do now, tell me what I did wrong.
And all I want is a place to stay.
A place where I can get away.

A good place. A safe place.
But I can't even look at my own face.
In the mirror I see a monster.
It's such a disaster.
And I can't get away faster.

But I'm just a monster wrapped up in a pretty skin.
Just a freak, look how I laugh and pretend.
I need to get away. Far, far away.
And I want to reach for that star that shines so bright...
But I'm so small down here on earth.
Look how pathetic, I have no worth.

What am I doing here? I don't even belong.
What did I do now, tell me what I did wrong.
And I can't even look at my own face.
In the mirror, I just look away.
I just look away...
