Monster In My Head


Hook

There's a monster
In my head
I cannot get it out
Figured I have it
Under control
But I'm still in doubt

There's blood
All over my face
It's like a mask to me
Friends become acquaintances
They're the past to me

Verse 1

There's a whirlwind
Inside of me
Better person I try to be
But it gets harder by the day

Keep your heart Three Stacks
Keep your heart

Don't let them take it
Meditation, dedication
Celebration, for elevation
Steady patient

Whatever it takes to make it
Through the day
I simplified my lifestyle
So I can be ok
They see my mask peeling off
They think they're losing me

You see the cracks in my skin
Start to illuminate
Like Dr. Manhattan
Blue is glowing through my face

I can't control it
No antidote
Now it's panic mode
I feel if I reveal what's killing me
Eventually it'll start healing me
My plans to grow

You never know what'll happen
When you take actions on your flaws
You feeling trapped
Behind these walls
So you start painting on them

Imagination makes a closed door
An opened one
But now the monster's walking out
With a loaded gun

Friends become acquaintances
They're the past to me

Verse 2

So much blood from my history
All these puddles
Don't make sense to me
This isn't me

I close my eyes
And see a different me
But I'm sure
From your perspective
You see it differently

If you're listening
I come in peace
My intentions seem
Always in the right direction
But when you mix
A broken heart with intensity

That's ingredients
To let the demons in
The devil's hungry
And I'm feeding him

Can you free me
From my mind?
I see the blood trail behind
There's blood on the leaves

And I'ma need a little more time now
'Cause I don't have
My mask on me right now
And I told you to wait
Look me in my eyes
No more face.

The Mask.

Brayden:

No, no, no. Watch this: THE MASK.

Interlude

Let's get it started
I'm a hip-hop artist

I was born with a recorder
From the cradle to the grave
The mic cable
Wraps around the tombstone
When it's time to pay respect
The casket plays a new song

I been lost inside a human body
All my life
So when I died
The mannequin had a new suit on
When they buried me
They took my face on
And hung it on the wall
Between a trophy and a baseball
This is memorabilia

Don't interfere with a Death Note
This is Kira
In the mirror
Staring at his reflection
All sinners get corrected
He feels like he perfected it.

Day of reckoning
This is destiny
Mixed with Rest In Peace
Press repeat
Have a quest to be the best
Self-growth is what I'm after
Another chapter finished.

Narrator:

The Mask is a blanket that shields us from our insecurities. It disguises our worst flaws and attributes from even the people who love us most. The Mask is our protection
