Duran Duran - Dirty Great Monster Lyrics




There's a dirty great monster
In this house
We pretend that it's not there
And there's no escape
From It's grip
But nobody seems to care
Do you ever wonder
About the days
When we were straight
But daddy got the hunger
So much to hide
We learn to lie

So watch yourself
In the hall
Where you're not supposed to know
Cause we're all afraid of each other
We're the victim's in this show

Well Do you ever wonder
About the days
When we were straight
when daddy got the hunger
too much to hide
We learn to lie
Silently out numbered
We made mistakes
When we were straight
Now we're all going under

Oh oh

So with a sigh we say good bye

Duran Duran Dirty Great Monster Comments
  1. Rif2020

    It feels like 2 different songs from beginning to end but i do like it and there's a nice melody going on ("..daddy got the hunger..") which could have been developed more. Interesting lyrics too.

    jp codnia

    It's got a classic Duranduran's sound but spiced with the saxophone solo that makes it very much a David Bowie song

  2. John Rappaport

    I like this a lot.

    jp codnia

    Great classic DD sound in an album full of fillers

  3. skintrade

    This is the only song from the album that sounds like it could have been on astronaut

    Gildan Jondal

    This and Box are the best tracks on the album.. I think they missed the point trying to keep up with current music by hiring Timberland to produce the album, they should have stuck with what they knew... a good song is a good song, no matter how well it is produced
