Private Little Monster

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
Under my bed you haunt
with fear pressing me deeper and deeper
underneath covers and far from your want
Slink and creep, for out you come
While I hide and bury,
trembling and numb.

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
From out of blankets and through rows of trees
Running and running
I can hear that one and only coughing wheeze

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
My house is empty, dark and asleep
or that's what I thought,
for you never made a sound, not even a peep
When I look behind and you're no longer there
Daylight rises
and you crawl straight back to your lair.

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
Well it looks like you're finally gone
off to chase another child
like a destitute lover bound to move on.

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
Walking to school, because it looks like I've won
Head held high, chin in the air
a nose so high it could touch the sun.
But soon the sun begins to set
And worry strikes me right in the back
For it looks as if I've been caught in your net.

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
Out from your hiding you crawl
my future dictates such gruesome death
like Humpty Dumpty on his brick wall

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
Rooted to the spot I stand
being swallowed by unknown fear
sinking slowly, from land to quicksand
Although it's nice,
my place isn't in heaven
I don't want to die, I'm only a young boy of seven.

Well here you come, come to feed
Hey you, my private little monster
chasing me down from a desire for need
Waking up sweaty and screaming
returning to a familiar sight
now awake and no longer dreaming
Comforting with loving arms
Save me momma, your protect me so
You can beat the monster
And that's what I'll always know.
