Lyrics[]

When you face the creature that waits beneath your bed
Will you stare into its eyes or look away?
Running towards the fire or fleeing from the flame
The choice to seek or hide is yours to make

The serpent inside, wrapping its tail around my neck
I'm buried alive, dying to take another breath
 
Invisible monster
Always felt but never seen
Unwelcome presence refusing to leave
Invisible monster
  
Hiding, never showing its face
Feeding on irrational fear
Thoughts race at a feverish pace, soaring on a flight of ideas

Perched on its victim's shoulder 
Whispering in his ear
Things that may never happen
Worries too much to bear

Invisible monster
Always felt but never seen
Unwelcome presence refusing to leave
Invisible monster
  
Invisible monster
Always felt but never seen
Unwelcome presence refusing to leave
Invisible monster
  
Invisible monster
Beast that dwells inside my mind
Give up your hold, let me take back control
Invisible monster
