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: JackRabbit
I am a mongrel and a scoundrel
I've been eating all my teeth
I am harder than your steel
I am harder than your streets
We may lay down in the alley here
But we don't get no sleep.
Out here, you are a rabbit, darling.
You are raw meat.

O Lord, won't you save my soul?
Won't you save my soul?
O Lord, won't you save our souls?
Won't you save our souls?
Track Name: Junkyard Dogs
It's freezing, it's freezing out here
Take me back home!

"You have no home."

We are junkyard dogs!
We will eat you alive!
We are the rabid and the wild!
Look into my eyes!

Bleeding, I'm bleeding to death out here.

You always said that I would.

"You have no home.
Don't come around here.
You have no home."

We are junkyard dogs!
We will eat you alive!
We are the rabid and the wild!
Look into my eyes!
Track Name: Cold Black Heart, Big Black Train
You and me, we were meant to be
We will never ever be apart
I will keep you locked up forever
In my cold black heart

I can hear the Lord calling me
Howling like the wind and the rain
He is coming here to take me
Like a big black train

Well I waited and I waited and I waited
But you never came.

This city is a prison, this city is a snake
This junkyard is a graveyard
This graveyard is a lake

The dogs are on my trail, the dogs are out for blood
The Lord is coming here to lift me
Up out the dirt and the mud

Well I waited and I waited and I waited
But you never came.
Track Name: The Monster Sleeps (And Waits)
Make a light with your mouth
Let it lead you out of town
Make it say the things you would never say,
Like "I will never let you down."

There's a monster who lives under the railroad by our house.
He drinks water that pours out from our gutter
Feeding off aspirin and thousands of cows
The only thing that can stop him is a light from your mouth.

Say the things we dance around!
Sing the secret silent sound!
O, I'm off to fight him!
I won't let you down!
Track Name: Ghetto Hymnal
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.
