The Monsters in Our Head
They toil and strike, they grind their teeth and they bite and scratch.
They feed and pray, the scared and weak. The attacks and quick and always lethal.
The horns and claws, they attack, so never turn your back.
Red eyes gleam through the night, they always leave you in fright.
The wolves and vultures they circle round and round. Always pray they attack when you’re bound.
Bound by doubt, bound by regret, bound by shame. Bound to a cross the sharks circle beneath. Bound by fear, bound by sadness, bound by loneliness, the blood the smell.
Attack the weak, the monsters seek. The darkness comes, the monsters creep. Around and around they circle and slither, fear and doubt they smell and quiver.
The monsters excite, they drool and they bite. They chomp at each other, who will make the kill.
They crouch to pounce. But the light shines through. Recoil of all, they hiss and cower.
The light shines through, it blinds them all, they scamper and crawl. He light holds power the monster will scour.
Freedom alas, the world in darkness shall pass. The light, the light, where does it come from? The light shines bright, and even with the sight, you cannot see.
The light is bright, and warm, and calm, the monsters are gone.
The light lifts you up, carries you away. The light shines for those who seek.
Refuge for all, all who seek, all who are meek.
Meek before the Lord and call for his name. Jesus is our light, the light of the world.
Jesus the mighty warrior who monsters flee from. Light up the darkness and away they go. The monsters cannot stay, as they wonder to and fro.
“But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.” (Jeremiah 20:11)
The Lord, the Lord, saves us all. The Lord the Lord, slayer of terrible beasts that linger in thought. The Lord of all, brings peace upon the whole, the Lord the Lord, saves our soul.
