about

The Town Monster Columbus

If synth pop wandered into a dark alley and found itself viciously beaten by a gang of guitar distortion and layered rhythms, it might sound an awful lot like The Town Monster.

The music all culminates in The Town Monster's crushing live show, an electro bath of sensory overload. It finds out what happens when noise becomes symphony.

Track Name: Voicebox
She stole my voicebox
Give me back my voicebox
She plucked my vocal chords
Ripped them out chromatically
'Til I lost every note
'Til I forgot who to be.

I used to sing
I used to sing so beautifully!
I was the devil's golden trumpet once.
I used to part the seas.

But she didn't want me and now neither do you.

So now when I sing
No sound comes out
Now when I sing
No sound comes out
But if it did, it would go:

O my Lord, O my Lord
Won't you come just like the rain
Wash my soul, wash my soul
Make me clean again.

O my Lord, o my Lord
Won't you come just like the thunder
Strike my soul, guide me home
Guide me home.
Track Name: The Silver Thread
I saw a light, I saw it
Catch the shape of black winged birds
I caught a light, I caught it
I watched it glow with my every word.

There's a house in my head
In a field where the horses and the dead rest
There are clotheslines and power lines
Grapevines and pumpkin pie
For miles and miles and miles
Of cornstalks and voiceboxes
Broken fences, promises
Promises you would be back

But you never came back, no
You never came back.

I saw a light, I saw it
Catch the shape of black winged birds
I caught a light, I caught it
I watched it glow with my every word.

There's a house in my head
I was there when I was a kid
A dirty road and a faded old barn
There is a man inside I knew who had died long ago
But he is there, staring out the window
Staring at us as we drive into the tornado.

We are running from shadows.
Track Name: I Am the Forest Floor
Autumn leaves fall on me
Autumn leaves fall on my heart

Everything turns red and gold
Watch the winds blow, watch the winds blow
Everything turns red and gold
Watch the winds blow the trees over
Onto my heart.

Running from the shadows, run, run

Red leaves are dead leaves and they fall my heart.
Track Name: When the Autumn Comes
I don't know what you want from me
Broken jaw, falling leaves
The birds and bees are enemies
When the autumn comes, so will we be.

Why won't you say you love me?

When I'm alone, I don't listen to the radio
I only listen to the sun, oh the sun, oh the sun
As it burns my skin
Oh, it comes 'round again and it burns
Right into my skin
Oh, do it again and again

Why won't you say you love me?

I don't want to know
