about

This song is autobiographical and perhaps one of Dietzes most revealing. For all the awkward little boys and girls with quirky imaginations, here is 'Monsters In My Head.'

lyrics

Monsters In My Head



A little boy learns early to tuck away his thoughts

Growing up’s not easy even with a magic dragon

And I didn’t know that boy could actually sing



Why won’t those monsters leave my head, my head alone!

Why won’t those monsters leave my head, my head alone!



Mother’s in the garden pulling out the weeds

Father’s working late nights. He’ll get home well past bedtime

And I didn’t know that boy could actually sing



Why won’t those monsters leave my head, my head alone!

Why won’t those monsters leave my head, my head alone!



Lost in your books and records, sing-a-long and make believe

A quirky imagination means eating alone in the lunchroom

And I didn’t know that boy could actually sing



Why won’t those monsters leave my head, my head alone!

Why won’t those monsters leave my head, my head alone!



I don’t hate you, I can’t relate to the things you say and do

There’s momentum in the creation of the fantasies no longer locked in my room
