I stand in the shadows

Where no one can find me

Here I am safe

Safe from the monsters

They will tear you apart

And watch you burn

They laugh at your pain and suffering

They find joy in sadness and despair

They feed on the misery of others

Everywhere they hide

There is no escape

Even in the dark I am not alone

Some monsters hide here too

The monsters have many names

But I only know them by one

They are society
