Lyrics

Perfect Monster
Verse

I’m building the perfect monster
The kind that brings you danceable grooves
Forgets your middle name, no seeking explanation....always wearing semi expensive shoes

I’m building the perfect monster.
the kind that paints whole worlds blue
It will wake you never hiding mass destruction......builds you a dream house with obstructed views

I’m building the perfect monster.
The kind that fancies the ingenues
never subject’s itself to explanation……It’s the habit you wished you’d outgrew.


Chorus
Watching as the monsters multiply
Adopting their traits into the alibi
Chasing rogues only we define
Paint a pretty portrait just to horrify

Watching as the monsters multiply
Approximating wisdom with fascist eyes
Counterfeit your reasons why
Challenge of a hundred brilliant lies
Verse
We're all building the perfect monster.
The kind they showed us on the evening news.
Presents itself with the glamour fascination…..Won’t mistake it for Fu Manchu

We're all building the perfect monster.
The kind that’s marked you like a bad tattoo
Always forgets your rendezvous connections……Too busy with it’s own statue.

We're all building the perfect monster.
The kind that came with a gold venue
Has a habit of miscommunication……it would even horde the last shampoo.


Chorus
Watching as the monsters multiply
Adopting their traits into the alibi
Chasing rogues only we define
Paint a pretty portrait just to horrify

Watching as the monsters multiply
Approximating wisdom with fascist eyes
Counterfeit your reasons why
Challenge of a hundred brilliant lies
Bridge
We build our own monsters
We build our own monsters
We build our own monsters
We build our own monsters

Chorus
Watching as the monsters multiply
Adopting their traits into the alibi
Chasing rogues only we define
Paint a pretty portrait just to horrify

Watching as the monsters multiply
Approximating wisdom with fascist eyes
Counterfeit your reasons why
Challenge of a hundred brilliant lies

Watching as the monsters multiply
Adopting their traits into the alibi
Chasing rogues only we define
Paint a pretty portrait just to horrify

Watching as the monsters multiply
Approximating wisdom with fascist eyes
Counterfeit your reasons why
Challenge of a hundred brilliant lies
