    'Monster'. From the album ' Steppenwolf - Live - '

    Written by John Kay and Jerry Edmonton

    Larry Byrom - Guitar
    Jerry Edmonton - Drums
    John Kay - Vocals, Guitar
    Goldy McJohn - Keyboards
    Nick St. Nicholas - Bass

    Produced by Gabriel Mekler
    Engineered by Tom Gundelfinger


    ♪♫ Once the religious, the hunted and weary
    Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
    Came to this country to build a new vision
    Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
    Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
    Later some got slaves to gather riches

    But still from near and far to seek America
    They came by thousands to court the wild
    And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
    To be their spirit and guiding light

    And once the ties with the crown had been broken
    Westward in saddle and wagon it went
    And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
    Many the lives which had come to an end
    While we bullied, stole and bought our a homeland
    We began the slaughter of the red man

    But still from near and far to seek America
    They came by thousands to court the wild
    And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
    To be their spirit and guiding light

    The blue and grey they stomped it
    They kicked it just like a dog
    And when the war was over
    They stuffed it just like a hog

    And though the past has it's share of injustice
    Kind was the spirit in many a way
    But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
    Now it's a monster and will not obey



    The spirit was freedom and justice
    And it's keepers seemed friendly and kind
    It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
    But now they won't pay it no mind
    'Cause the people got fat and grew lazy
    Now their vote is like a meaningless joke

    You know they talk about law, about order
    But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
    'Cause there's a monster on the loose
    It's got our heads into a noose
    And it just sits there watchin'

    Our cities have turned into jungles
    And corruption is stranglin' the land
    The police force is watching the people
    And the people just can't understand
    We don't know how to mind our own business
    'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
    Now we are fighting a war over there
    No matter who wins
    You know we can't pay the cost

    'Cause there's a monster on the loose
    It's got our heads into a noose
    And it just sits there watching


    America where are you now?
    Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
    Don't you know we need you now
    We can't fight alone against the monster ♪♫
