  • Why do all the monsters come out at night?
    Why do we sleep when we want to hide?
    Why do I run back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?

    Another day, 'nother headache in this hangover hotel
    Gettin' used to the rhythm, yeah, I know this beat too well
    Tunnel visions got me feeling, like you're the only one I see
    But I know what's missing, where I'm swimmin'
    In my lonely luxury

    I'm wondering why do all the monsters come out at night?
    Why do we sleep when we want to hide?
    Why do I run back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?
    Why am I a sucker for all your lies?
    Strung out like laundry on every line
    Why do I come back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?

    I'm addicted to the way you hurt, the way you contradict me
    I swear everything look worse at night, I think I'm overthinking
    I don't care who I might hurt along the way, I'm fuckin' sinking
    Into every word, I don't care if you lyin' when I'm drinking
    So, tell me pretty lies, look me in my face
    Tell me that you love me, even if it's fake
    You can lead me on and leave these questions in my sheets
    I'm under it, I made my bed and I'm still wonderin'

    I'm wondering why do all the monsters come out at night?
    Why do we sleep when we want to hide?
    Why do I run back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?
    Why am I a sucker for all your lies?
    Strung out like laundry on every line
    Why do I come back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?

    Thinkin' about you, you're in my head
    Even without you, I still feel dead
    Why do I run back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?
    Dead, thinking about you, you're in my head
    Even without you, I still feel dead
    Why do I run back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?

    I'm wondering why do all the monsters come out at night?
    Why do we sleep when we want to hide? (Hide)
    Why do I run back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life?
    Why am I a sucker for all your lies?
    Strung out like laundry on every line
    Why do I come back to you, like I don't mind if you fuck up my life? (Fuck up my life)
