Monsters Lyrics

[Alex Gaskarth:]
Why do all the monsters come out at night?
Why do we sleep when we want to hide?
Why do I run back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?

Another day, 'nother headache in this hangover hotel
Gettin' used to the...

    I feel this song is talking about issues such as depression and anxiety - they can often tend to be more active at night, suggesting that these issues are the "monsters".
    If these issues go untreated they can ruin how an individual see things and how they live their life.
    I see other comments talk about the song being about relationships or drugs and maybe it could mean this, especially when looking at the lyrics "Another day, another headache at the hangover hotel". However, relationships, drugs and alcohol have been used as mechanisms to cope with mental health struggles.
    While there is no proof to support this theory, this is just the feeling I get from the song.

    It has many different meanings. I see it as in my own online relationship that I keep coming back to no matter how bad it is for me.

    This song is definitely about addiction and substance abuse, clever usage of using the trope of a toxic interpersonal romantic relationship in place of the substance. Often times the two are intertwined anyway.

    I feel like its about a toxic relationship that they just keep coming back to even though they know it isn't good for them.

    To me it is about a relationship. One that is like fire and gasoline. Yet they can't stay away from each other. Maybe even risking to ruin thier happy lives they may have with other people. You think you'd be better off but you still feel dead

    I feel like it's about heroin. He talks about how it ruins his life. Although he comes back to it. And with out it, it's ruining his life too. Cause he wants it still so badly. His body and brain still crave and long hard core for that drug and it's unpresendented power. Still hovering over him. Which is completely normal. People who have used heroin. Always will deal with the desire to use it. Even long after they quit. Heroins power has altered and changed one's brain chemistry so much that they still think and fantasize about the drug and powerful sensation it releases over the body. It's something that is unlike anything else really in life. Opiates are no joke for game to play around with in life. Especially the over whelmingly life changing/ruining power of heroin addiction. It takes over ones life completely. And no matter even if they somehow get sober from the drug. It forever plays a part in the person's mind, conscious, and spirit. (Please if you have never used heroin. Don't ever touch it what so ever! It destroyers happiness. Tears apart lives, relationships, and families. It's as ruthless as they come. And once you trigger it. Quitting it becomes such a difficult, long, and trialing up hill battle. That so unfortunately and sadly. So many never find an escape from.)
