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: No Rest For the Wicked
I don't know you but I love the aching pain
Of always being awake and never eating
Lovely Feeling
I know now nothing will ever be the same
This is more than I can take
Never sleeping, always dreaming

Right here, right now
On the floor, get down
Take me to heaven
I want to go now
Love me like this is the last night of your life.

Right here, right now
On the floor, get down
Take me to hell
I want to go now
Love me like this is the last night of your life.

Tonight, you are all mine
Tonight in all the neon lights

There's no rest for the wicked

I don't know you but you drive me insane
Take the wheel, run me off the road
I will not feel a thing.
I know now this is not a game
I sold my name to buy your drugs
Called 'Never Eating/Lovely Feeling'

Tonight, you are all mine
Tonight in all the neon lights

There's no rest for the wicked
Track Name: The Willow Grove
Glory, glory, hallelujah
My Lord Jesus Christ is born

Matchsticks and crucifixes, ribbons and bows
Wash my soul clean as the snow
With pine cones and secrets and mistletoe
I buried my heart in a willow grove.

A tinker, two tailors, three drums and four bells
My last five pennies in the wishing well
I sold my name for a wedding ring
Six girls dancing while the seventh one sings....

Dance around like paper dolls!
Your voice is spun from gold!
One of these nights, angels will come
And carry you out the window.

And if they should leave me alone
I will pray to the Lord
And go lay down in the willow grove.
Track Name: (/) (I Will Break the Circle)
If I make a wish
It's to kiss you on the lips
The you that I knew on the other side
Before the breaking of the tide
So long ago
In the ocean of my mind

The piano hums
Like the breaking of your skies
Like a newborn child
I am the wish of life

Won't you let me go?

I want it all but black birds are circling
Thousands of black knives stabbing the grey skies
That were never mine.
I want it all, yes
Everything in my eyes.

I want everything outside inside of me

Snow in your soul!
Bless you, bless you
Then right out of your nose.

So shake it out.
Shake it on out.

Love of my life,

How have you been? What are you up to? It's not the same without you. I sit in my room and I write letters and dream of horses kissing jellyfish. The spectacle of its tentacles upon a palomino wish! Horses killing jellyfish. I never meant to break your heart anymore than you meant to break mine. All I know is that I need you to stay alive.

So shake it out!
Shake it on out!

My eyes are open!
Black birds are circling!
My heart is filled up!
You moved my hands.

My eyes are open!
I am not a ghost!
I will be forever awake where I lay in the land!
Track Name: Ohio (Part Two)
This will be the last day of my life
Don't ask me how I know, I just know
Yeah, and I am not afraid to die
We bury our bodies in the ground
But our souls glow

Like the leaves on the trees and the birds and the bees
And the weeds, willow groves
And the smell of your clothes
And the way you would smile on country roads
You will always make my heart explode.

Glow like the tears on your face
Memories we erase
And that quiet place only you and I know
We're falling softly, laying down
And melting without a sound

Like the snow on the hills
Of Ohio.
