Good for you, you fooled everybody
Good for you, you fooled everyone
Good for you, now you're somebody
Good for you, you fooled everyone
Leave your weapon on the table
Wrapped in burlap, barely able
Don't get angry, don't discourage
Take a...

    My monster are the lost of my son and the strugglers I had with doctor who just ignored my worries. It’s also so really that my husband just admitted to me after 14 years together that he blames me. I feel alone for not it’s to late to bear children and loosing the love of my life. My shot of courage is that God is testing my faith and he has a plan for me.

    Come home from serving they give you drugs take them away now you use herion and struggle through herion it's hurt everyone,
    My weapon on the table is a spoon and needle.
    Take a shot of liquid courage,"herion" good for you you fooled everyone even myself..I tried to fool myself after getting clean that I can just do it hear and there and it would be fine. I fooled everyone to believe I'm clean as I relapsed, I just got better at hidding it.... But my monsters are real.. tracks prove it...unfortunately they will never say die but I will...

    I kind of feel like this song could be about a soldier suffering from PTSD and unable to integrate back into society after the horrors of war. His 'monsters' rise to a higher level than the ones that most of us have to deal with; they are, in essence, trained how to kill.

    Smith states that the song was influenced by his past struggles with alcoholism and substance abuse that he struggled with around The Sound of Madness era of the band,stating:
    "Everyone who knows a bit of my background with regard to substance abuse and alcoholism knows that I've battled with it. It's something I deal with on a daily basis. I've always been very honest about it, which is that I didn't do drugs today – and I didn't drink today – but I don't know what I'll do tomorrow, because I literally have to take it day by day. I never went to rehab, I didn't do a 12-step programme, and I don't talk about sobriety unless I'm asked about it. Even then, I don't spend much time on it because I literally live my life day by day. That's how I have to do it, but the dynamic in the song is not just about substance abuse. It's about a lot of different situations that people get put in because they have things in their mind that – for whatever reason – they used to sabotage themselves. They don't know why they do it, but they do it, and these are the monsters that I'm talking about: those voices that say, 'I know this is going to be really fucked up after it's over with, but let's do it anyway.' That's the sentiment in the song, when I sing that 'my monsters are real and they're trained to kill.'"

    Smith similarly noted the song was influenced by his self-awareness of the issue, and his belief that despite his control of his sobriety, he feels that just one drink of alcohol could lead him straight back into binge drinking and causing trouble.

    Sorry about your experience with your sister and your experience with yourself.

    FYI, if we don't control our tongue we can really say hurtful things to others. To avoid having a poisonous tongue, think good and positive thoughts. Avoid thinking bad and negative thoughts. Control your thoughts and you will be able to control your mouth.

    Peace!

    -Punk

    This song opened up my mind to how i feel and can put into words of the hell that my sister, that has really bad bipolar, put everyone through. My life was a living hell from childhood and now suddenly she had this massive "change" in personality and suddenly everything is forgiven? But my monsters are still real because i know what she is capable of and i can still see the darkness and bitterness in her and i can see it's a front... Cause we both know you are unstable... Her biggest weapon is her poisonous tongue.

    My interpretation of monsters is my inner monsters they are my anxiety and depression. And they are hiding in the dark and they can strike at any moment of time. They have been known to push people away and make me do things that I regret.

    For me, my monsters are within, they're the memories that can't be forgotten, the stains on my soul. Reliving moments over and over, only to feel the pain all over again.

    You're not forgotten, I remember everything, even when I wish I couldn't.

    I’m the one that’s the monster and I created the madness in him.

    My monsters are my stepdad, who sexually abused me at 13. Those monsters are real and never stay gone. I can barely heal, let alone live.

    I'm a child abuse survivor and come from an alcoholic home. My monsters sadly enough are still real even though the people are not there anymore.

    My son loved showdown. He died a year ago at age 19. This song for me has real meaning as my monster is struggling daily with his absence and my broken heart.
