About this tab version
Apparently, most tab authors have problems correctly translating the Drop C tabs into chords, so here's my take on this song - including power chords and strumming patterns. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Are these strumming patterns correct? Yes No

"Monster" by Skillet
off the album "Awake" (2009)
Tabbed by HashtagMC


It's important to note that during the verse and intro, the C5 is
always played on the 8th note after the "2" beat, NOT on the "3"
beat, so the chord change is in the offbeat. Keep this in mind
to avoid confusion.


[Intro]

F5 C5
G#5 C5
F5 C5
G5 Bb5 F5 D#5

F5 C5
G#5 C5
F5 C5
G5 Bb5 F5 D#5


[Verse]

F5      C5            G#5    C5
The secret side of me, I never let you see, 
F5     C5             G5    Bb5 F5  D#5
I keep it caged but I can't control it.
F5      C5           G#5            C5
So stay away from me, the beast is ugly.
F5      C5             G5 Bb5   F5   D#5
I feel the rage and I just can't hold it.
F5          C5                G#5        C5
It's scratchin' on the walls, in the closet, in the halls.
F5       C5          G5   Bb5   F5   D#5
It comes awake and I just can't hold it.
F5     C5             G#5      C5
Hidin' under the bed, in my body, in my head.
F5        C5                G#5
Why won't somebody come and save me from this?
Bb5
Make it end!


[Chorus]

C5                     D#5
I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin, 
G#5                   G5   Bb5    F5  G5
I must confess that I feel like a monster! 
C5                      D#5
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun.
G#                    G5   Bb5    F5  D#5
I must confess that I feel like a monster!
C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5   C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5
I, I - feel like a monster! I, I - feel like a monster! 


[Intro]

F5 C5
G#5 C5
F5 C5
G5 Bb5 F5 D#5


[Verse 2]

F5       C5             G#5       C5
My secrets that I keep, hidden under lock and key, 
F5     C5             G5    Bb5 F5  D#5
I keep it caged but I can't control it.
F5       C5                   G#5        C5
Cause if I let him out, he'll tear me up, break me down, 
F5        C5                G#5
Why won't somebody come and save me from this?
Bb5
Make it end!


[Chorus]

C5                     D#5
I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin, 
G#5                   G5   Bb5    F5  G5
I must confess that I feel like a monster! 
C5                      D#5
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun.
G#                    G5   Bb5    F5  D#5
I must confess that I feel like a monster!
C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5   C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5
I, I - feel like a monster! I, I - feel like a monster! 


[Bridge]

F5                      C5
It's hidin in the dark, it's teeth are razor sharp, 
D#5
There's no escape for me,
   G#5
It wants my soul, it wants my heart.
F5                         C5
No one can hear me scream, maybe it's just a dream, 
G5
Maybe it's inside of me.
G5   Bb5  F5  G5
Stop this monster! 


[Chorus]

(this is played only on one string, except for the last line)

C5                     D#5
I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin,
G#5
I must confess that
  G5   Bb5    F5  G5
I feel like a monster! 


[Chorus]

C5                      D#5
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun.
G#5                   G5   Bb5    F5  G5
I must confess that I feel like a monster!
C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5   C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5
I, I - feel like a monster! I, I - feel like a monster! 


[Chorus]

C5                      D#5
I'm gonna lose control, it's something radical, 
G#5                   G5   Bb5    F5  G5
I must confess that I feel like a monster! 


[Chorus]

C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5   C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5
I, I - feel like a monster! I, I - feel like a monster!
C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5   C5 D#5 G#5         F5  G5
I, I - feel like a monster! I, I - feel like a monster!
