Monster
Heart-Set Self-Destruct Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I got a catacomb of secrets that would break your heart
I got a grave to dig with your name on it
While you watch

I've given up on the sunshine can't avoid the rain
When I did become this monster that lives for this pain?

When sleeping pills can't offer what you want
I'm living underwater but I can not drown

I can not swim to save myself I'm drifting off
I'm sleeping underground now
Forever in hell

I'm not alone here in the darkness I'm buried in thoughts
In a dream it was silent when my world fell apart
When the angels come to dying
They'll come to get lost
I'll be staring into your eyes while you watch them fall

When sleeping pills can't offer what you want
I'm living underwater but I can not drown

I can not swim to save myself I'm drifting off
I'm sleeping underground now for ever in hell
And I'm breathing in the water I can not drown
When did I become this monster
Forever in hell
What have I become x2

I'm living underwater but I can not drown
Living underwater

I cannot swim to save myself I'm drifting off
I'm sleeping underground now for ever in hell
And I'm breathing in the water
But I can not drown
When did I become this monster forever in hell





Monster Lyrics

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Monster" by Heart-Set Self-Destruct tell the story of someone who feels like a monster due to the secrets and pain they hold within. The singer describes themselves as living underwater, unable to drown, and sleeping underground in eternal hell. They question when they became a monster and express a sense of helplessness and desperation. The lyrics also allude to the presence of another person who the singer is staring into the eyes of, as if waiting for them to witness their fall.


The catacomb of secrets mentioned in the beginning of the song represents the burden the singer is carrying, which they believe would break someone else's heart if they knew. The grave with the other person's name on it could be interpreted as the singer's desire to inflict pain on the other person or perhaps a metaphor for them trying to bury the other person's memory.


Overall, the lyrics suggest a sense of despair and resignation to the fact that the singer is stuck in this state of being a monster forever.

I did the same. I checked all of Hollywood Undead's songs, and I could not find it. Then I went into Yahoo, and typed in some of the lyrics, and then I found out the band. lol
