Lyrics

In the middle of the night
Your demons come to greet
They get you when you’re tired
They get you when you’re weak

They find you in your bed
They get you in the dark
When you’re unprotected
You let down all your guard

The monkey’s on your back
Stealing all your breath
Climbing up your back
She won’t let you rest

They find you in your dreams
Changing all the rooms
In places that you lived
Places that you thought you knew

They linger at the edge
Send shivers down your spine
You wake up in a sweat
With a heart in double time

The monkey’s on your back

You tell yourself a thousand times
It’s only shadows on the blinds
But how the light can trick your eyes, to find
It’s only in your mind
