The Chills - The Male Monster From The Id lyrics

there's a part of me that's in disguise
though I fight to see it won't arise
i'd avoid your eyes, denying
something dark and primal surviving

i have another side i try to hide
it cannot escape because if it tries
there are defences raised around it
for i chose to keep it surrounded

chorus
got to stay on guard always, want to keep my caveman hidden
everyone has some off days when we make bad decisions
each man i've seen has some animal behaviour in him
some can conceal better the male monster from the id

got out, destroyed his cage
saying thoughtless things with mindless rage
and i've seen him harm those i'm close to
with his charms he's so hard to see through

chorus

i hurt you
i'm sorry
and i promise i wont do it again
and i'm mending all my errors
i really am

but my Mr Hyde he lies and lies
it'd take a Superman to supervise
but imagine all the damage
if the hidden man that took lives (?)
in Forbidden Planet survives

i'm not like that every day
i'm not normally that way
you need convincing i can tell
i don't say this very well

i'm sorry
i hurt you
and i promise i wont do it again
i'm mending all my errors
i really am

the male monster from the id
the male monster from the id
the male monster from the id
the male monster from the id
