Lyrical Interlude: Monster by Skillet

Occasionally, while I am listening to a song a singular lyric or an entire verse will jump out at me and simply describe the mood that I'm in, or how something has made me feel recently.  Currently I've been listening to a lot of Skillet, simply because I adore them, but mainly because they have become my go to for attempting to recenter myself when I have no desire to resort to new age, or classical (though I use those often as well). 
Today, I'd been listening to Monster by Skillet, and this one particular verse simply stood out at me more than the rest of the song, and it can easily be applied to various things that have been going on in my life - and ultimately the fact that I'm attempting to figure out how to deal with certain situations and ultimately I'm not sure how things will play out and there are parts of me that I do keep hidden.  

It's hiding in the dark
It's teeth are razor sharp
There's no escape for me
It wants my soul,
It wants my heart

So, ultimately I find myself rewinding and listening to this particular part of the song over and over again.  What does it mean?  To what event in my life currently is it pointing to?  I do not have the answers, nor do I expect them to show themselves anytime soon.  However, I do hope that they surface soon enough.
