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: Guantanamo
What a way to make a living, baby!
I've collected all your things
from the Scioto to Guantanamo.
What don't I know that everybody knows?
You keep it low, baby, nice and slow.

Now everybody go:
Hey! Hey!

What a way to spend an evening, baby!
Laying on the couch, drinking Robitussin
And you brought me scones.
It was the best night of my life.

Now everybody go:
Hey! Hey!

What a way for you to see me, baby!
After all these years
Still whining on the corner
Of Fifth Avenue & High.
Well there’s twelve notes in a scale.
That’s more than enough to get me by.

Now everybody go:
Hey! Hey!

Well don’t you worry about me now, baby,
I’ll be fine.
I said, don’t you worry about me now, sugar,
I’ll be fine.

I’m still alive, yes,
I’m still alive, yes,
I’m still alive,
I just don’t know why.
Track Name: Foxy Girl
Oo-de-lally, what a foxy girl
Oo-de-lally, what a foxy girl
Prettiest girl in the whole damn world
when you shake your tail, you make mine curl
Oo-de-lally, what a foxy girl

I'm up in the club
With my crocs I'm a killer
Rolling up, the bass goes thump
With my baby and a Beaujalais
Everybody else is for the birds and squirrels.
Uh-huh.

When you get a load of my honey,
You'll be buzzing like one mean honeybee.

You got it goin' on
Shut up and dance.

I'm down in the club
With my dogs, I'm a roller
Comin' up, twelves in my trunk
You know you gotta pay it, pay it up.
She don't want diamonds and she don't want pearls.
Uh-uh.
When you get a glimpse of my baby,
You'll be howling like one mean coyote.
Track Name: Silkworm
Wait for me and I will see you on the other side
On the other side of the doom
In this world, things fall, go boom
It will all be over soon
I am exploding in your stereo.
I am exploding in your bedroom.

Rise all alight!
Glow like a silkworm
Hope like a cistern
Rise up all alight

Send an angel to my side, Lord
I am out for blood.
Track Name: Temple
You left your only son to wolves.
You built us with the strangest stones.
What you're doing is impossible.
You paint our souls in marigold.

Don't you ever want to sleep?
Don't you grow weary of stitching up your soldiers?
The wolves are hungry, the wolves they weep.
Yeshua, I'm so afraid. Your temple is falling down.

Send your angels! Send your demons!
I hope your rivers run dry.
Send your angels! Send your demons!
I pray holy fires melt the sky.

I'm so tired of living for me, living for you, living for me, dying for you.
I want to forgive what you took from me.
Would you kiss me while I run you through?
I have to know, Father, why, Father why, Father why,
I was the tallest and proudest of your horses
But you had to make a wolf of me.
I can't wait to be your first mistake.
I can't wait to burn for eternity.
So tell me why, Father, why, Father why
Can I not be me?

Send your angels! Send your demons!
Is it hard to wear your crown?
Send your angels! Send your demons!
Yeshua, your temple is falling down.
Track Name: Deerhorn
I was running through the forest with a shotgun.
I was running through the forest with a deerhorn in my hand.
I was running through the forest when I came upon that frozen lake.

It broke my soul.
O, it turned me hollow!

I was running through the valley with a wicked shotgun.
I was bounding down the mountain with thorns in my hooves.
I was fawning on a doe when I made that deadly mistake.
O, it turned me hollow!
Hollow like the wind blows!
It came right at me like the devil!

Despite all the war and the wolves and the death,
All I can think of is you.
It's funny you'd be struck by lightning before I could be with you.
Despite all the war and the wolves and the death,
Seeing a ghost is just seeing his breath.
Hunting a deer is like searching for God,
So what will you do when you come for it?

You know what you will do.

All my life! All my life! I've been waiting all my life
To shoot one right between the eyes!
I heard her cry like a child
With her face so blank and wild
Like a china doll with a human soul.
Then she stood on her hind legs and bayed
And I prayed and she bayed and she prayed and I bayed

And I drowned her in the lake.
It broke my soul.
Track Name: All My Dead Friends
I would've eaten you if I could.
Filled my mouth with all your blood
So you could never leave me.
I would have planned out my attack.

We were all just children then.
We didn't know what we were doing.
I would have stolen all your hearts if I'd have known
You were never coming back.

All my dead friends, they haunt me.
They tell me all the things I'm never gonna be.
All my dead friends, they love me.
They sing to me in my dreams.
All my dead friends, they hold me.
They show me all the things I'm never gonna see.
All my dead friends, they left me.
They are dropping, they are falling like leaves.

I am a funeral every day.
I am hanging from your scarves.
I should have stolen all your hearts
But all I do is rain, rain, rain.

Thieves stab each others' backs
Then pluck on angel harps.
I should have sank your paper boats
But all I do is rain, rain, rain, rain, rain.

I can't do this on my own.
I don't want to anymore.

I am a funeral every day.
I just want to hear you say it.
When you walk out of my gates
Get your harp out and play it.

All my dead friends, they haunt me.
They tell me all the things I'm never gonna be.
All my dead friends, they love me.
They sing to me in my dreams.
All my dead friends, they hold me.
They show me all the things I'm never gonna see.
All my dead friends, they left me.
They are dropping, they are falling like leaves.

I would die to be with you.
Track Name: Anastasia
We built the house
They haunt the house
So we burn down the house! Oh, oh no...

"But we're just tryin' to get by!

Like the worms in the wood and the wolves in the walls
With these chains on our arms and the spirals in the halls
Well we wished you, and we warned you.
You breathe when your dead.
If you burn down this house, well
We'll just haunt your heart instead.

You have been warned."

Put out the fire!

...Now that the roof's come down
And the fire's out
They own the house! Oh, oh no....

"This is my home with all you lonely people.
Creaky floorboards
O, my blood brother
That night we drew swords
And watched our blood drip down..."

"But it was not meant to be!
Where are you, my love? Where are you?
I can't find you without those candles in your room.
Something horrible is coming soon!"

Anastasia.
Track Name: Party
I want you to stay at the apartment where I'm living
We don't have any money, but we've got a lot of style.
I can tell that you're bored and dying, and I can tell it's been awhile

Since you felt right
Held your head up
Since you saw daylight
It's time to get up

It's gonna be a party.
We're gonna get high.
It's gonna be a party.
We're gonna have a good time.

I want you to stay forever. I wanted you my entire life.
Please hold me while she holds me while he holds her.
I just want to come right when your soul hits the sky.

It just feels right
To never wake up
I'm always lying down
Let's kiss and make up

It's gonna be a party.
We're gonna get high.
It's gonna be a party.
We're gonna have a good time.
