Noteworthy lyrics
You know we come from a place
Where people smile but it is fake
How could they smile if you look around they are surrounded by pain
I’ve seen the sky turn to grey
It took the light from the day
It’s like the heads of the state
Ain’t comprehending the hate
That the oppressed generate
When they’ve been working like slaves
To get some minimum wage
You turn around and you blame
Them for their anger and rage
Put them in shackles and chains
Because of what they became
WE ARE THE MONSTERS YOU MADE

Meanwhile, talking about the track “Monsters You Made” in an interview with NME Magazine, he said:

There are so many situations where a fight needs to be had. A revolution is needed, and I want to inspire it. I’m painting a picture of what we already see every day, but maybe no one has painted the picture in an honest form before. I tried to do that with ‘Monsters’.

Had the two verses and an empty space for the hook, but in my mind, I was like: ‘Bro, if I don’t get Coldplay on this one then I’m just gonna release it with no hook’…

I don’t know the English words to put this in or the politically correct words to use for this, but he’s one of the only people that could bring that balance and still relate.

“That’s the balance…He’s the only one that could have pulled that off.”
