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: Raincloud
4, 3, 2, 1

We're gonna get down

Life is so short
We are dancing in a thunderstorm
We are a strange sort
We are dancing in a thunderstorm

Sound and light
They get me high
The ocean, the sky
They make me cry
I try not to feel it
Pump through my chest
But it crawls up my spine
Makes its way to my eyes
And I cry and I cry and I cry

You are so beautiful I want to die

We're gonna get down

You are a raincloud, baby
I am afraid of you
Track Name: Birds and Bees are Natural Enemies
I met a bee, I met a bee
You buzz when you breathe
You have honey on your hands when you reach out to sting me

I met a bee, I met a queen bee
I climbed up a great tree to meet her

I could never leave,
You could never leave
I could never leave,
You could never leave me.

And then the rains came
Washed away
All my grace
In the breeze I sway

Birds tapping on the branches
Screaming their heads off
Tapping away
How? How the hell could you hate them?
I can't live without them
Tapping away.

Orange, yellow and blue
These are the colors I think of
When there's nothing but grey, grey, grey, grey.

Sing:

I could never leave,
You could never leave
I could never leave,
You could never leave me.

And then the rains came
Washed away
All my grace
In the breeze i sway

Hush now, little bee
And I will sing you a lullaby
If you hum one last sweet song for me
Before I lay me down to die
And if this mighty branch should break
Then the rain it will come turn these graveyards to lakes

Ooh, it's over, all over, it's all over now yeah
Hush little bee, it's over, all over, it's all over now
My sweet little bee
Buzz your little song to me
Track Name: Mongrel
INSIDE A BROKEN CLOCK
I've given up time, it's never been my friend.
I'd prefer to never know when this party's going to end.

I like my honey sweet
And I like my apples red.
I want you wild in the eyes when we drop down dead.

Sugar Pie, Sugar Sugar Honey Pie, Sugar Baby Gumdrop
With a lemon on top, I
I think I love you
I think I'd love to
Come inside, Sugar Sugar Honey Pie
But be careful on the climb, it's a long long drop now
The fall is treacherous from up this high.

GIVE MY UMBRELLA TO THE RAIN DOGS
FOR I AM A RAIN DOG TOO.

And now,
ABOARD A SHIPWRECK TRAIN
You haven't changed a bit.
You'll always stay the same.
You will never die. You will never grow old.
You can only buy what you've sold.

We are dancing down here.
We are out of our minds.
You are a raincloud, baby.
We are drowning down here.

I want your face I want your bones
I want your eyes I want your glow
I want these grey skies to stab me with lightning
Before I explode
I want to bury your heart in the blood red snow.
YOU'LL NEVER BE GOING BACK HOME.

GIVE MY UMBRELLA TO THE RAIN DOGS
FOR I AM A RAIN DOG TOO.
Track Name: Lightning Dragon Lady
The day the dragon came down the mountain
I searched my heart for peace, but
There is no peace in this land.

I know you.
I've seen you in my dreams.

The day the dragon came down the mountain
We planted apple seeds in every dead field, but
I can not escape her bony hands.
She is coming for me.

The devil ain't no friend of mine
But I'm in love with his wife.
I don't know, there's just something about her
There's just something that she does right.

She told me something, I won't tell no one.
She told me something, I won't tell another soul, no.

Lightning, lightning.
Here it comes, boom, boom, boom.
