What's the story?
The single "MONSTER" is the contribution from alt-rock band Paramore to the Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie soundtrack. It's a clean tune told from the positive point of view of someone emerging from the depths of a bad breakup. Lacking profanity or graphic references to mature topics like drinking and sex, these lyrics revolve around getting back on your feet when you've been knocked down: "You were my conscience, so solid, now you're like water ... I let my heart go, it's somewhere down at the bottom / But I'll get a new one and come back for the hope that you've stolen." Overall, the track is a fine pick for younger kids who like to rock.
