    Okay so i said spoilers in the title so this is the last warning you'll get.


    So after listening to Paramore's new song Monster, and looking at the lyrics, it seems as though it could be from Sentinel Prime's perspective. I want to know what you thought it was about, and it has to be related to Transformers.I can't wait to hear what you guys have to say about it, thanks for your time.

    "I'm only human, I've got a skeleton in me"
    yep, sounds like SP to me.

    Lol that was funny, but I didn't mean that everything was about him, only that some of the lyrics make it kind of sound like it is about him.

    You don't have to take everything literally.

    "I'm only human" is basically a way of saying "we all make mistakes/have flaws" and "I've got a skeleton in me" can equate to "I'm not/I don't think I'm invincible."

    Songs can be very metaphorical, with a lot of analogy. Hardly anything is literal, like SPLIT LIP pointed out.
    It very well could be talking about Sentinel... what with "I'll stop the whole world from turning you into a Monster!", Sentinel, in his betrayal, could easily be considered the Monster in that.

    Exactly, i think that is a metaphor to show that Sentinel is like everyone else, in that he wants whats best for cybertron.....through any means.

    "I'm only human, I've got a skeleton in me
    but I'm not the villain, despite what you're always preaching.
    Call me a traitor, I'm just collecting your victims

    And they're getting stronger
    I hear them calling."

    i think your question is really "if you choose to ignore things, can this be about SP."
    answer is yes.

    I'll interpret for him:
    What Nametaken REALLY meant: "I can't understand the power of metaphors and analogy, and therefore take everything literally. So I choose to ignore the metaphors and analogies."

    Essentially.

    Transformers fans are so literal. (Darksyde, mumble grumble)
