Starset - Monster Lyrics

Under the knife I surrendered
The innocence yours to consume
You cut it away
And you filled me up with hate
Into the silence you sent me
Into the fire consumed
You thought I'd forget
But it's always in my head

You're the pulse in my veins
You're the war that I wage
Can you change me?
Can you change me?
You're the love that I hate
You're the drug that I take
Will you cage me?
Will you cage me?
You're the pulse in my veins
You're the war that I wage
Can you change me?
Can you change me?
From the monster you made me?
From the monster you made me?

This is the world you've created
The product of what I've become
My soul and my youth
Seems it's all for you to use
If I could take back the moment
I let you get under my skin
Relent or resist?
Seems the monster always wins

You're the pulse in my veins
You're the war that I wage
Can you change me?
Can you change me?
You're the love that I hate
You're the drug that I take
Will you cage me?
Will you cage me?
You're the pulse in my veins
You're the war that I wage
Can you change me?
Can you change me?
From the monster you made me?
From the monster you made me?

My heart's an artifice, a decoy soul
I'll lift you up and then I'll let you go
I've made an art of digging shallow holes
I drop the darkness in and watch it grow
My heart's an artifice, a decoy soul
Who knew the emptiness could be so cold?
I've lost the parts of me that make me whole
I am the darkness
I'm the monster

You're the pulse in my veins
You're the war that I wage
Can you change me?
Can you change me?
You're the love that I hate
You're the drug that I take
Will you cage me?
Will you cage me?
You're the pulse in my veins
You're the war that I wage
Can you change me?
Can you change me?
From the monster you made me?
The monster you made me?
The monster you made me?
The monster you made me?

    Pick up the pieces-
    of your scattered lies.

    Craft yourself a mask to hide behind~

    Convince yourself you're whole inside~

    But the tears are staining your eyes...

    You're trapped inside,
    You're always on my mind.

  47. Xeudo Code

    Came from arknights.

    The mixture of modern reese sounds and metal sounds was amazing. And all the supersaws and use of reverb was just jaw dropping. Amazing work guys!

  48. Hugo De Carvalho

    You know, some people compare Linkin Park and Starset and, funnily enough, there are some lyrics that remind me of Linkin Park, like it was some reference, that's a pretty strange feeling. (For those who don't know, or are just too lazy to search (i don't blame you) i'm talking about "The Catalyst" with that "I'll lift you up and then I'll let you go" part)

  49. Alfredo


  50. Christopher Calderon

    Who found manifest by tfk and manifest led you here.

  51. Brandon Hale

    That's our sad future.

  52. German Martinez

    Ah, I see they are trying to contain the Eldrazi

    Jenny On Kindle

    German Martinez 😂😂😂

  53. Mark

    I'm going to be honest here and say this is still one of my all time fav songs and videos. I've even wanted to see if I could cosplay the "guide" but I'm not sure how I would do the smoke effect to be allowed in convention halls. Oh well.

  54. 笑うKimTao Velas

    My soul and my youth ( Typically could be anyone at this point since kids get internet service at their fingertips ) can you change me? From the monster you made me ( The internet is either a weapon of defense or a weapon for self harm ) you're the love the I hate, you're the drug that I take ( Everyone loves it but It becomes much of an addiction ) the innocence yours to consume ( Oh God, I literally explain it in the first piece of the lyrics from the song ) you definitely have to look how these people are blinded ( whatever they have on their eyes ) almost as if hypnotized by these artificial devices. Then you see the people changed into a good and happy place when they are taken off ( at 0:54 ) Basically a moral of how technology is affecting us.

  55. Logan Corcoran

    The video is so sad

  56. Chris Coyne

    What illusions am I burdened with? What would I see if unshackled? God help me...

  57. Johnathan Pratt

    This video describes the apocalypse that will unfold soon if our society does not realize what is becoming of them. You're being brainwashed and desensitized by the media, the educational system and the government. It's not at this level yet, but many are just about as hypnotized as the people shown in this video.

    Chris Coyne

    Care to share your take on what our illusions are? It's one thing to say we are being brainwashed but entirely another to argue what is actually real. And please, don't take my tone as disrespect... I sincerely want to hear what you think is the brainwashing and what is real.

    Johnathan Pratt

    @Chris Coyne My response would then be for you to learn of the message of the Starset Society. Starset's mission is to spread their message. Cheers and God bless!

  58. Jesus Vera

    we generacion, at least l listen skillet forever

    Chris Coyne

    Is it? Or can our minds be so distant it seems like a dimension away? I wonder what happen if we all were on the same wavelength...

  74. The GunMaster

    Is every music video a 5 min black mirror short?

  75. Argon

    I came here because of Bray Wyatt a.k.a The Fiend.

  77. lxxv

    The money you could make from having a flat mask like this, that displayed a 3 second glitch like this on repeat... I mean if you wanted full boar on it, it'd cost, but the minimal cost? You could do this 4 dollars a mask and sell them for 50. I don't even care but someone make it for me, please.

  78. Yashraj Singh

    Few years back, when I used to go out with my friends we used to interact a lot and it never got boring hanging out with them. Now , all of them are glued to their phones and talk with their eyes on their phones. I also started doing that but it felt so bad , I stopped carrying my phone outside. The temptation still comes to have a phone in your pocket ,some times I become anxious. But being surrounded with your best friends still feel empty now.

    Chris Coyne

    Share your feelings. Friendship's reason is so that you feel free to reveal your insights and to help them feel as free such that you can grow from each other.

    Santiago Torrez Segarra

    imma keep it real with you chief, if they are always on their phones but you dont get any texts from them, they probably arent as close to you as you think...

  79. Given Warner

    i grew up with linkin park

    now i’m blessed to say i know dustin bates personally because he lives in my town 😂🥴

  80. Marzipan

    So sad this is what humans will become. They are just too stupid to realize.

    Chris Coyne

    Know this. This comment reflects a defeatist attitude. Ask yourself why you feel this fate is "inevitable" and start your journey down the rabbit hole...


    ​@Chris Coyne I see why you would think that, but I am not faithless or without fight at all, since I know there are many strong and intelligent people out there other than myself. Rather I feel sorry for the ones who aren't. That is why I posted this.

  81. Michael Combs

  91. Matt Musicaddict

    Incredible song!

  92. Movie Fan 1000

    Cooler Song

  93. Hayden King

    I believe that this song is about the grip that technology has on our minds and that if we get out of the fantasy realm that technology puts on our minds then the truth might be to much to handle and we will see the effects that mankind had put on the earth hints the monster part

    Chris Coyne

    What illusions do you feel grip the minds of our people and what truth would you have crashed into their fantasy?

    Hayden King

    @Chris Coyne the illusions that tech can sometimes put on are minds is the harm that we are doing to our planet of course that's not always the case and if we use tech for purposes such as learning then we might be able to save the earth before its to late

    Chris Coyne

    @Hayden King Is it tech that puts illusions in our minds or is tech simply reinforcing the things we already believe? Confirmation bias is the engine that drives online activity. Tech is simply telling us what we want to hear so the people behind it can make money from our interests.

    I would also like to ask, on what basis other than widespread belief, do you believe the planet is dying? What analysis have you done, that you can share with me, convinced you we are harming the planet?

    Hayden King

    @Chris Coyne to be honest with you it's both it not only supplies is with new knowledge and information but it can also reinforce the beliefs that we have
