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: Miscommunication?
So I took a little bow and left the room
I did a little dance in the shadows too
I met a little doll and she looked like you
Just like you.

So I took a little time, filled my prescription
But there's not any left at all
She's standing naked by the window
Waiting for me to fall asleep...

I always fall asleep.

So I took a little bow and left the room
I did a little dance in the shadows too
I met a little doll and she looked like you
Just like you.

I fell in love with the doll and I took her home
I locked her up in my room so that we could be alone
She kept me warm, she kept me safe
Ten minutes straight
Now there's nothing left but the feel of
Her nails in my face.

I really fucked up this time!
A pin prick! A slit wrist!
I really don't think that I can
Sleep my way through this.

My baby is a beautiful, dirty little thief
She stole my heart, she stole my soul
And she buried them like dead leaves.

I'm sorry, I must be mistaken.
I thought you liked me...
Track Name: Paper Boats, Paper Ghosts
I woke up with to the news today
And you took flight.

I always told you that, in time,
I knew that you would leave
And you would take everything.
I don't know how you did it, but you took me too!
You've stolen me!

I woke up with my eyes today
My airways tight

Under a bat's wings, pulling on puppet strings
These fancy fingerthings, keep my head down!

Now, up!
Now dance me down!
Dance me around!

Paper boats come to take me away.
Paper ghosts come to take me away.
Track Name: Black Roses
Black sunshine blooms black roses
Black hearts only love the lonely & the broken
I see you coming and it's terrifying.
I try to run, but I'm frozen...

Black souls feed only on black wine
I do nothing as you pluck me from the grapevine
What's gonna happen?
Lord, give me a sign
Let me know everything is gonna be all right...
Oh, no

In the garden
In your eyes
There is no life
Everything dies
You are the Vampire Queen of the Flies.

And I want it.
Drink me up.
Track Name: B1G WH00P1N' 5K3L3T0N5 (I'm Not Guilty Anymore)
So I'm here to get my fifty lashes
They tell me it helps
To close your eyes tightly
And think of something that matters.

I'm first in line
Beginning to picture my mother's eyelashes

But wait, I'm not guilty anymore
Big whoopin' skeletons!
They bought my sin
They did my chores
Big whoopin' skeletons!
But wait, I'm not guilty anymore!

They don't do that kind of work for free
The laws of nature tax a gruesome fee
And I paid them
Oh yes, I paid them.

But wait, I'm not guilty anymore
Big whoopin' skeletons!
They bought my sin
They did my chores
Big whoopin' skeletons!
But wait, I'm not guilty anymore!

Please don't look at me that way
I can't say why just now
But the Lord knows why
And He knows how I paid them.

I come from a place the school bus never passes
Combustion engines can't combust in the sea
They say the school bus comes for someone
But that someone isn't me

It's gonna happen in the autumn
It's gonna happen in the winter
Flocks of swollen swallow birds
It's gonna happen soon.
