5 Steps to Becoming a Monster

By mrpurplehaze318

1.  I just can't explain it, it comes from within
it's like i step back from myself, and watch it begin

From the tip of my toes, through the tops of my head
 clinching my fist while all visions burn red

It's not quite a hate, but so far from a love
not from the depths, but so far from above

My brain stops working, instinct takes over.......

2. I don't know what this is, it comes from within
its like I left my body just to watch it begin
My heart starts racing, I dont even blink
I'm parylized in the moment, I cant even think

It's borderline rage, so keep an eye on me
because if I do snap, a haunting strikes upon me

My thoughts become clear, but I'm not thinking right.......

3.  What is this feeling? it comes from within
     its like I hate to love chaos while I watch it begin

I try to calm down, level one-under
take deep breaths so my minds not a blunder

Caught in my conscience, one side fights the other
inside my twisted mind, my stomach  starts to flutter

My adrenaline flows wild,  the rage is building........

4. This rage that controls me, it comes from within
a chaotic state of mind,  the feared thoughts begin

What these thoughts think, I could never say aloud
tourmented in my mind, alone in a crowd

Sit down on the floor, to anticipate the break
hands clasp the ears, I hate the sound it makes

My ears fill with warning, my pupils dialate.....

5. The creature I've became, it has emerged from within
strangling my mind, and bled out through my skin

I quickly run away, I do not want to see
 massacres ensue, subconsciously through me

Run far away, to get away from myself
a monster was created, with everyones help.

     -Five steps to a monster, never say you didnt know
      now stuck with him, never again will I show.........
