My Favorite Monster

My Favorite Monster (Archaic Torso of Apollo) by miscellaneous owl

Gods that come in golden showers
Through the rooftop, down the wires
Lit like a lamp by the laptop's glow
Exploding with light like The Pleasure Principle

They turn to see you
They know your name
Your dark center
Your shining shame

You must change your life

Headless torso of a hairless man
Filling up my screen again
It's true, you know it when you see it
Nothing left to the imagination
But the head that's hovering above the frame
Those eyes, are they fixed upon your face?

I could be happy if I found someone
Who looks at me like I'm better than I am
My favorite monster looks like loneliness
And loneliness looks just like a man
Like a man
Like a man

Hard to tell the difference between a god and a monster
Or if the woman in the video actually wants it
If holy just describes a bunch of holes, a hollow
A swan or a bull or a TV repairman
Knocking at the door, coming on in
Shining like gilt, like a statue of Apollo

And I could be happy if I found someone
Who looks at me like I'm better than I am
My favorite monster looks like loneliness
And loneliness looks just like a man
Like a man
Like a man

A smile runs from hip to thigh
Says like Shakira, hips don't lie
The girl gets down on her knees as though to pray
They're beautiful, all of them
The faceless women and the headless men
It seems so real, why can't I touch it?

And I could be happy if I found someone
Who looks at me like I'm better than I am
My favorite monster looks like loneliness
And loneliness looks just like a man
Like a man
Like a man
You must change your life

My Favorite Monster
A song within a song - by heine


My favorite monster – it is very small.
Even with some glasses you won't see it at all.

My favorite monster – it lives under your bed.
When you fall asleep it crawls into your head.

My favorite monster – crawls right into your brain.
Causing you these nightmares, driving you insane.


Wake me up, please wake me up…
What captivates me in this dream?
I can't wake up; I can't escape
even if I scream.

I'm running fast but cannot move;
trying to get away from you.
I feel my body sweat,
my clothes are soaking wet.

It is right behind me;
yes, I can feel, I can feel its breath.
I can even smell,
can smell that muddy mess.

Let me be..; oh, let me be...
I want the light again to see.
Love, where have you been?
It's been so long since we've seen.
Love…?!?



My favorite monster deserts when you awake.
But be sure it's coming back by the end of this day.

My Favorite Monster
by Lichen Throat

Sitting in the Green-Eyed Owl at night,
Troubadours play by the lantern light.
Cold rain falls on the black tar roof;
It’s warm inside and waterproof.
Ale is flowing, and tales are told.
Pockets full of silver and gold.
See that girl over there,
Wary eyes, raven hair?
She’s the head of the Redblade Band,
The baddest outfit in this land.
She’s here to look for hired swords,
Then head off to the unexplored.

Am I fit to join her crew,
Do anything that she’s been through?
I’ve been up north to battle giants,
Toe to toe in mad defiance.
I wonder, will she look my way,
Take on a new protegee.
Here she comes! Must look tough.
Will she see through my bluff?
She’s the head of the Redblade Band,
The baddest outfit in this land.
She’s here to look for hired swords,
Then head off to the unexplored.

She skips right past the pleasantries
And shouts so I can hear her,
She says, “Just answer honestly—
Would you fight a chimera?”
So nervous just to talk to her,
I say, “That’s my favorite monster.”

The corners of her mouth crinkle a bit;
Scars on her face are candlelit.
She can’t hold back a little laugh,
Then reaches out her hand to clasp.
She says, “Don’t drink too much tonight;
You’ll ride with me at dawn’s first light.”
Then she turns, walks away,
Clicking heels, swinging braid.
She’s the head of the Redblade Band,
The baddest outfit in this land.
Now she’s found her hired sword;
We’ll head off to the unexplored.

My Favourite Monster by Vom Vorton

two heads
eight feet
my favourite monster’s always ready to eat
(and isn’t afraid to show it)
two meals
that’s right
my favourite monster has a big appetite
(and is gonna make sure that you know it)

but check the stats, inspect the medical charts:
my monster has a perfect pair of hearts!

two sets
of claws
my favourite monster has the quickest paws
(you’d better stay on your toes)
don’t try
to hide
my favourite monster has four green eyes!
(everything in a double dose)

but check the stats, inspect the medical charts:
my monster has a perfect pair of hearts!
twice the chaos, coming from every direction
my monster is a bottomless pit of affection!

each move
it hears
my favourite monster has four pointy ears
(and they’re pointed in your direction)
it’s time
to climb!
my favourite monster is a mountaineer
(with a special gift for destruction)

Paco del Stinko - My Favorite Monster

I'm cruel, I'm not cool, but I'm still nobody's fool
Yes it's true, I paid dues, and it hurts when I act the fool
When I'm gone, say so long, I'm out of notes for a pathetic song
Everyone's singing but I ain't got me a tune

In my scene, I am mean, but I always do what I say
In my teens, I had dreams, I made everyone go away
I believe, that you'll grieve, when I come over to slay
I'll take the baby before it can ween

My favorite monster is me - My favorite monster is me


I was wrong, but that's gone, and I really don't care
To be fair, you're aware, I won't let you suffer for long
That's alright, 'cos I lied, and you see that I'm strong
Watch as the light fades and you run out of air

My favorite monster is me - My favorite monster is me

I can see, I'm not free, and no-one can ever stop me
Another ghost joining the breeze

My favorite monster is me - My favorite monster is me
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Cybronica - My Favorite Monster

A body too big for its form
A mind too quick for its kind
Strength unbound but for the norm
Of men who rule by the pen

Malformed and misshapen
Insulted and slandered
All wrong by our standards
I’m sure underneath
There’s a really nice nice guy
My favorite monster is I

Shapeshifter shaped by the shifting
World filled with cruel boys and girls
Wears a glamour that keeps it adrift
When instead it’s told it should be dead

Alone and afraid
Desperate to hide
Don’t show what’s inside
I’m sure underneath
There’s a really nice guy
My favorite monster is I

A darkness eclipsed by a grin,
A smile that’s sure to beguile
Covers the thoughts deep within
So hateful none can relate

Violent and brutal
Imagining malice,
Greeds vicious and callus,
I’m sure on the surface
There’s a really nice guy
My favorite monster is I.

"My Favorite Monster" - Third Cat

my favorite monster threw you to the ground
we followed him too far
I thought he was you and it's true
the sound is brighter than a star

he planted the seed
he gave me the need
always gotta feed this endless greed

my favorite monster threw you to the ground
we followed him too far
I thought he was you and it's true
the sound is brighter than a star

My Favorite Monster
Pigfarmer Jr

She told everybody that I was a monster
For all the little things I've done
To hear her tell it I'm quite the villain
The worst damn man living under the sun

Well, I must be evil from what she said
It sounds like I'd be better off dead
She can call me names and say I'm mean
But my favorite monster, you know, he's me

I forgot her birthday just last month
And she didn't get a diamond ring
I wrote her a song to apologize
But she doesn't like the way I sing

Well, I must be evil from what she said
It sounds like I'd be better off dead
She can call me names and say I'm mean
But my favorite monster, you know, he's me

Well, I must be evil from what she said
It sounds like I'd be better off dead

My Favourite Monster
Pepper Jane and Caravan Ray

Who wants to be my friend
It’s getting kind of lonely at the end, (of the world)
I know it’s such a long way to send (help)
But who wants to be my friend

Who would be my friend
I can't imagine that such a creature could exist
If it did it would surely populate the bottom of the list of unpleasant creatures in this world

I could try another way
I could try another way
I could try another way
But who wants to be my friend

Who wants to be my friend
Don’t worry I wouldn’t want to either
Everything (that) I eat comes out of the freezer
Who wants to be my friend
Who wants to be my

Who wants to be my
(You are my favourite monster)
Who wants to be my
(You are my favourite monster)
Who wants to be my
(You are my favourite monster)
Who wants to be my

Berkeley Social Scene
My Favorite Monster

She thinks she crashed the car
Because there’s blood on the floor
Glass in her hair
And a note on the door

I hate you even though you’re beautiful
I hate you even though you’re beautiful

She’s a monster
I can’t define
She’s still a child
And she’s all mine

She takes pills to keep up with the vampires
I visited her in the hospital a few times
We walked the grounds and talked about nothing in particular
We said goodbye Then I went home

I hate you even though you’re beautiful
I hate you even though you’re beautiful

She’s a monster
I can’t define
She’s still a child
And she’s all mine

She sends me dirty pictures
But I no longer respond
I can’t see her reflection
She’s gone

I hate you even though you’re beautiful
I hate you even though you’re beautiful

She’s a monster
I can’t define
She’s still a child
And she’s all mine

My Favorite Monster
By glennny

It seems he’s fallen on hard times again
He will take shelter in his own trash can
He refuses to be just refuse
He’s still on the upper west side
Tonight he waits for Bruno
To pick him up and go for a ride

Monsters in the words we say
Monsters in the alley way
Try your best not to give into fear
You can throw it away but it’s always here

You may dismiss him as an old curmudgeon
You’d be surprised at the depths of his dungeon
He’s a lesson in pessimism
He wants nothing while expecting the worst
When immersing in his subversion
Your constructs begin to burst

Monsters in the words we say
Monsters in the alley way
Try your best not to give into fear
You can throw it away but it’s always here

His gruff exterior makes one think
He doesn’t care
But whenever I’m down in the dumps
He’s always there

He’s a lesson in pessimism
He wants nothing while expecting the worst
When immersing in his subversion
Your constructs begin to burst

Monsters in the words we say
Monsters in the alley way
Try your best not to give into fear
You can throw it away but it’s always here
