The Monster Inside

Have I shown you my monster inside?
It’s similar to yours but this one is mine
Yeah this one is mine

Mine can speak gently and eloquently
(You may not always detect it)
It hoists verbs like “enarbolar” and writes divine
But buries the treasure chest empty of riches
And full of regrets
Yeah full of regrets

Have I shown you my monster inside?
It’s similar to yours but this one is mine
Yeah this one is mine

I tried starving him and tried to blind him
With radiant hope
And all I managed to do is entwine sighs and signs
Into an ever-tightening rope
Around my neck

Have I shown you my monster inside?
(Full of regrets)
It’s similar to yours but this one is mine
(Shown you my monster inside?)
(It's similar to yours but this one is mine)

(Borges: "Así mi vida es una fuga ...")

Borges expressed it so much better than I.
(Borges: "... y todo lo pierdo ...")
Who is this demon inside
(Borges: "... y todo es del olvido ...")
Knocking incessantly during the early hours
(Borges: "... o del otro.")
And ringing in my ear in the late hours?
(It is I.)
(It is I.)
(It is I!)

Have I shown you my monster inside?
It’s similar to yours but this one is mine
Yeah this one is mine

(Borges: "No sé cuál de los dos escribe esta página.")

There is no victory in this rediscovery.
Much better souls have been here before
And tiptoed through the creaking wooden floors
Without awakening the baby
Nor the guard dog.
(Guard dog)

Have I shown you my monster inside?
(Shown you my monster inside)
It’s similar to yours but this one is mine
(This one is mine)
(I am a monster)
(I am not a monster)

I apologize
For his lack of manners
And for leaving messes around the house
I’ll speak to him about that
Again.
