The Monster

Chorus
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
get along with the voices inside of my head
you're tryin' to save me, stop holdin' your breath
and you think I'm crazy yeah, you think I'm crazy

Verse 1
I wanted the fame but not the cover of Newsweek
oh well, guess beggars can't be choosey
wanted to receive attention for my music

mmlp2lyrics_the-monster_2
wanted to be left alone in public excuse me
for wantin' my cake and eat it too and wantin' it both ways
fame made me a balloon 'cuz my ego inflated when I blew, see

but it was confusing, 'cuz all I wanted to do's be
the Bruce Lee of loose leaf
abused ink, used it as a tool when blew steam

mmlp2lyrics_the-monster_4
whoo, hit the lottery ooh-wee
but with, what I gave up to get it was bittersweet it was like winnin' a used mink

ironic 'cuz I think I'm getting' so huge I need a shrink, I'm beginnin' to lose sleep
one sheep, two sheep, goin' coo-coo and kooky as Kool Keith

Chorus
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed

Verse 2
Now I ain't much of a poet but somebody once told me to seize the moment and don't squander it
'cuz you never know when it could all be over tomorrow so I keep conjurin'
sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from

yeah ponderin'll do you wonders no wonder your losin' your mind the way it wanders, yodalodaleheehoo, I think it went wanderin' off down yonder and
stumbled on 'ta Jeff VanVonderen, 'cuz I need a interventionist, to intervene between me and this monster
336040
mmlp2lyrics_the-monster_9
and save me from myself and all this conflict
'cuz the very thing that I love's killin' me and I can't conquer it
my OCD's conkin' me in the head keep knockin'
nobody's home I'm sleepwalkin'

Verse 3
Call me crazy but I have this vision
one day that, I'll walk amongst you a regular civilian

mmlp2lyrics_the-monster_13
but until then, drums get killed and I'm
comin' straight at MC's blood gets spilled and I'll
take you back to the days that I'd get on a Dre track, give every kid who got played that, pumped up feelin'
and shit to say back to the kids who played him, I ain't here save the fuckin' children

mmlp2lyrics_the-monster_14
but if one kid out of a hundred million
who are goin' through a struggle feels it and
relates that's great, it's payback, Russell Wilson
fallin' way back in the draft turn nothin' into somethin still can
