There's a beast inside
It seeks to destroy
To destroy what others love
Why should others love her?
This girl the monster hates
Don't they know about her flaws?
Haven't they felt the pain she inflicted?
Why do they keep loving her?
With forgiveness so ready at hand?
The monster cheers with glee
Cuts and scars on her body
Insults the world will see
Now they will know!
Now they will be sure to run
To run from a girl as unstable as she
Some of them have stayed
They're checking in on her
Protecting her from the monster
How can they love her?
Love her when she's the monster?
