LYRICS: Lucius


I traveled to Albany, NY on Friday to see Bahamas open up for Lucius at The Hollow. I knew seeing those two acts on the same bill in such a small venue would be special and worth the trip. I’ve got to say, I was completely blown away by this show. It was one of the most amazing musical experiences I’ve had. I’ll probably post a few more times about it… but today I’m still thinking about this particular Lucius song and its incredible lyrics.

The song talks about the “monsters” inside us. We all live with them…whether we’ve been able to identify that or not. Over the past few years I’ve really learned to notice these “monsters” and have tried to be curious about them from a place of self. It’s amazing what you can discover within yourself when you’re open to it…and how that can change how you deal with situations and interactions with others.

“I know I’m older, but there are still monsters in all of my closets
Sometimes I feed them and some, they get bigger than others
Depends on the day
Sometimes I’ll sit on the edge of my bed
And I’ll wait just to see them rear their ugly heads
Sometimes I just cannot face them

I know I’m taller, but there are still things that are out of my reach
One of my monsters, you ask him, they’ll tell you
He’s always reminding me
I’ll never get loved just as much as I give it
My life will be hard for as long as I live it
You ask and they’ll tell you it all

Maybe if I sit and reason with them
Tell them they’ve got it all wrong
Maybe if I sit and reason with them
And tell them they’ve got it all wrong

I should be wiser, but all of these monsters
I let them get under my skin
One of them has the most hideous face
And he says that I look just like him
One of them, she’s so intelligent
She won’t acknowledge what I have to say
And she’ll tell you she knows it all”
