Ashley Gonzalez This album is a collection of some of the most incredible music I've ever had the opportunity of hearing. I'd been so excited for The Monstars' new release for quite a while and let's just say, it did not disappoint in the least.

Each track was beautifully crafted from the lyrics, vocals, rhythm, tone, and sound all the way to the track and album art.

You guys are the best and I can't wait to see (and hear) what you come up with next! The Monstars rock! Favorite track: Icarus Mal.

Track Name: The Boogie Man
He fills you with the spirits
and I don't mean alcohol
Here he comes

He fills you with the spirits
and I don't mean alcohol, no
The boogie man will getcha'
He comes to get us all

(the boogie)
Man! (the boogie) Man!
The Boogie Man!
Keep a sharper eye on him

Ya hear his haunting voice
A shriek inside a whisper
Ya can't control your body
He's cast the Come Hither

(the boogie)
Man! (the boogie) Man!
The Boogie Man!
Keep a sharper eye on him

The wonder in your eyes
The shaking of your hands
No force on earth can stop him
'Cause he's the boogie man

(the boogie)
Man! (the boogie) Man!
The Boogie Man!
Keep a sharper eye on him

I see you playin' right into his hand
So keep a sharper eye on him
The boogie ma-a-a-an
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

He fills you with the spirits
And I don't mean alcohol
The boogieman will get ya
He comes to get us all!!!

Take arms and fight the boogie man
Do battle with the king of nightmare land
Take arms and fight the boogie man, you cannot win
Do battle with the king of nightmare land
The king of nightmare land
The ghost of what has been
Track Name: Metamorphosis
Crooked saucers up above are looking down below
Feeding off the energy of those that do not know
It's all some part of a master plan to catalyze the planes
But we've gotta realize we're all almost the same

Uh oh there's a lonely wolf in the wild
and he's looking for something to feel
He knows it's not his place but he screams
deep down he just wants to be loved

This wolf wasn't always wild oh no
he once was a cub with nothing to worry
But things change
oh how they change
The wheels are turning

Entlings in the forest live by a golden rule
Always take an open hand as long as they seem cool
Moon is up and all are out let's keep our hearts in stead
Now the Entlings murmur in song
And they said

Uh oh there's a lonely wolf in the wild
and he's looking for something to feel
He knows it's not his place but he screams
deep down he just wants to be loved

This wolf wasn't always wild oh no
he once was a cub with nothing to worry
But things change
oh how they change
The wheels are turning

The wheels are turning
The wheels are turning

Uh oh there's a lonely wolf in the wild
and he's looking for something to feel
He knows it's not his place but he screams
deep down he just wants to be loved

This wolf wasn't always wild oh no
he once was a cub with nothing to worry
But things change
oh how they change
The wheels are turning

I can feel myself begin to change
yeah my mind goes blank
It's so very strange there's a
wheel in me that turns with the seasons
and it's turning again
let the metamorphosis begin
Track Name: Dark Magic
I see you walking that line again, again
Why don't you drift to this side my friend, my friend
My friend, my friend

Open up your mind
to a little dark magic
Open up your mind
Let it all inside
it's just a bit of dark magic
Let it all inside

It can't hurt you to try my friend, my friend
So try and open one eye and then, begin
And then, begin

Open up your mind
to a little dark magic
Open up your mind
Let it all inside
it's just a bit of dark magic
Let it all inside

Open up your mind
to a little dark magic
Open up your mind
Let it all inside
it's just a bit of dark magic
Let it all inside
Track Name: Little Birds
Far away in the phantom's house
A bird heard you say, "I need to get out"
And that bird flew to me and it told me the same
So over the ocean I've journeyed to save
you

I've come from the ocean there's fish in my hair
I wrestled a kraken but I didn't care
It's part of this journey that I undertook
When I finally get there I'll read you a book

About little birds
that couldn't learn to fly at first
Their parents would frown
"Little birds, why aren't you out?
The other birds have flown
and they, like you, are fully grown"

Take time little birds
So what, your wings aren't all unfurled?
You'll fly little birds
You'll see, you'll find your place in the world
Track Name: The Soldier Kid [AGUF]
Solider kid, soldier kid
Powder explodes again
Solider kid, soldier kid
Got no helmet for his head
Soldier kid, soldier kid
A war fought outta sand
Soldier kid, soldier kid
Youll never make home again

Its difficult for him to say, its hard to say the least
Just an idiot with his two cents, that he worked so hard to keep
He tried to be so strong, he thought, but he was wrong
And I guess its kind of dumb, in retrospect

[Evila Ro Daed Meht Gnirb Ho Ho Ho Ho]

Time and time again, he'd try to morph and bend
To the laws set infront of him, by some greater men
Fuck, so sick of trying, so sick of all the crying
His friends jumped one by one, and hit the ground while dying

But he never starts complaining, there's worse out there, with pain in
Their lives, God, hes glad, hes grateful for what he had
But its tough to be a soldier, for you're your only friend
He truly loved the others but felt safer in his head

No, not depressed, yes he was content
The reason that he wrote all this, trying to find my balance
Was he a boy or a man, was he lion or the lamb
The leader he wanted to be is torn apart, in strands

Would you mind if i told the story, its one that youd expect
Broken every day, he tried to control the flak
He told his sisters, that he missed hers
But they kept stepping back- well that little shit grew up
alone, but he made it at- (at)

Years on the sidewalks, dead stare, he fell flat (flat)
Got shat on and stabbed, but fuck if, he came back (back)
Not looking for shitty pity, just trying to express
Hes teaming with leanings, what the fuck would you expect

And another chess piece falls, he hopes its none of ours
He hopes its never anyones, but with our luck its them all
With my luck, wed be prosperous, at least for a moment
But after thats gone, we'd be torn apart by our own men

And we're

solider kid, soldier kid
soldier kid, soldier kid
solider kid, soldier kid
soldier kid, soldier kid

[Evila Ro Daed Meht Gnirb Ho Ho Ho Ho]

-

Burned through my ears, shamed, i shed my tears
My god it was the most beautiful thing that i could hear
The promise and the detail, I found myself in art
My hands betrayed me enough, theyd had there fun

Time to get to work, if only once in my life
Shaking violently, ready for inner strife
I lined up my demons, I was not gonna feed'em
Put a bullet through each of them, at least while i was dreamin

And they layed there screaming
At least they did in metaphor
Like a similie that you cannot trace
Back to the smoking guns barrel
The pit in my throat
It was a poisonous toad
I vomitted that bitch up
And dragged his brains across the road

And this long road to ruin, was crackling
This road i paved myself, was paved in apathy
And times like now, when it floods over and i feel so done
I do something so strange
As to stand straight, not get spun

These promises i make, i wont soon forget
These things i try to create, aren't made from cement
They fall down now, and then, and when i fall down again
I hope this soldier has his men, we're just allies til the end

We`re just soldier kids, soldier kids
Its all of who we are
A new age world
Filled with old age scars
Soldier kids, soldier kids
Emotions in the rough
Soldier kid soldier kids
It was once all love
soldier kids soldier kids
Protecting eachother
Were unknown family
Between these borders we cover
soldier kids soldier kids
Marching to the fight of our lives
soldier kids soldier kids
Were living now not just filling time

[Evila Ro Daed Meht Gnirb Ho Ho Ho Ho]
Track Name: Seashells
See I can't walk on water
But I can sure as hell try
I'm headed out for an island
With trees that touch the sky

And I'll be swimmin'
And I'll be swimmin'

I wanna see something awful
Something that isn't the same
I'll live out with the angels
Free from anger and pain

And I'm marching
to the beat
Of the Giant's giant feet
Now listen

He don't care
He's stepping on the seashells

And we're marching
to the beat
Of the Giant's giant feet
As he goes
Wah-oo wah-oo wah-oo wah-oo
Wah-oo wah-oo wah-oo wah-oo [x2]

You can't defy what is written
When it's written in blood
So keep your eyes on your feet, my friends
And away from the blood

The Giant, looks down on me
and he says, "You're not dreaming."
"I've come for your children. So step 'out the way."
"Here I come."
Track Name: The Murder On Mulligan Street
I saw the murder on mulligan street
I saw the cursed things, I never should have seen
I'll pay my due just in this iron, I will not meet
What lays beyond these walls, soulless things not machine


When the moons set on sky, when its white and complete
When shes lone in her bed, fearing dreams in fleeting sleep
She tries her best not to feed the memories conceit
Return to what she saw back on Mulligan street

It was decades ago, from sights not my own
On nights with calm winds, she hears howling rushing low
She ran through an alley, expecting to stop a man she knows
But what she saw instead, a horrid beast with eyes aglow

Feeding on twilight, stained with young maids blood
She should have stayed and fought the beast, to save a woman's life of whom she owes
And oh, the beast did give chase, oh no
Stopped up in a back way, the police chose her as their foe


I saw the murder on mulligan street
I saw the cursed things, I never should have seen
I'll pay my due just in this iron, I will not meet
What lays beyond these walls, soulless things not machine


She was bound, she was gagged, a bag over head
They called her a monster for a crime she did not commit
Starved and held for 30 days more, she was skin and bones
They asked her what happened that night and this is what she told

A brute, a beast, a dark god, and teeth stained with blood
What little skin there was shown, was thick as stuck mud
Fur so dark, and eyes so filled with piercing evil
It burns in my mind, the deepest fear of the demon people

The doctor said she was mad as she was savage, and wicked
The jury thought she would be best caged, and for a jacket she was fitted
But before they took her off, out of that varnished oak room
She saw a man standing in the back, and when our eyes met I knew- she knew- that

I saw the murder on mulligan street
I saw the cursed things, I never should have seen
I'll pay my due just in this iron, I will not meet
What lays beyond these walls, soulless things not machine
Track Name: A<a Dirty Bills
I punched my time
Off sweating shirts
My legs are weak
My back is sore, it hurts

Ooh, ooh!

Im living on minimum
Working on-
But im slipping up
And im down, carry on

Ooh, ooh!

And I, I sold it
Yes I sold my soul
Can't believe that I
I sold it, sold it

[I owe my soul to the company store]

Got green passing hands
And it isn't mine
Have a pain in my neck
As deep as my spine

Ooh,ohh!

If I stay in my lane
And work through the pain
I may find a way out
At least thats what they say

ITS WHAT THEY SAY

And I sold it
Yes I sold my soul
Can't believe that I
I sold it, sold it

[I owe my soul to the company store]

Those sorrow sounds
Come from the minimum wage worker
Who dont have a choice but
To sell their soul
Track Name: Icarus Mal
Fly, fly, fly if you can stand the sight
Of the earth below us, burning under our feet
High high high, it takes one cloud to fill puddles
No sounds, I cannot think of a rebuttal

I was walking alone down the country road
At night, the moon flickered with a jet black falling feather

Say good bye, say good night, a monsters coming down from the sky
Oh my - so fragile like the deep night
So tall - so quick, so full of magic
Say goodbye, say goodnight, this meeting only lasts til morning

I cant stop thinking of the tick tock, the way that witch boys did that
Night- I'm gonna try and walk again and hope I get to see him tonight

Say hello, he says I know, a monsters coming down for the snow
Oh woah, so sturdy like the deep cold
So tall- so quick, so full of magic
Say goodbye, say goodnight, this meeting only lasts til morning

Fly, fly, fly if you can stand the sight
Of the earth below us, burning under our feet
High high high, it takes one cloud to fill puddles
No sounds, I cannot think of a rebuttal

I- was walking alone down my country road
At night, the moon flickered with a jet black falling feather
Track Name: Plastic Heart
In a factory so far away
A plastic heart is being made
Out of old recycled materials
Of bottles and mysteriums
The fumes are so hazardous
A mask is needed: gaseous
To step within it's yard- Oh so bordered up with bars

The radial activity
Has demolished three cities
Left nothing in its wake
Not even a ground to quake, and was
Fashioned to fit our needs
This plastic heart is sickly sweet
Despite its toxic out bursts- despite our reminder's


The greed, the love, the kind, the dumb
Anger, sadness, and all above
Could never be computed
Into a plastic heart
So a century has gone by,
construction has halted
And has died
Upon a hill a thousand foot heart stands


The commsioner of the foremans lair
Uses karma to explain his hair
Though desipte the reasearch
The plastic heart is to blame
In board room so long ago
A pixel heart is being shown
To model a great success
Diluted for the press

He eluded and disputed
What the outcome would be
No matter how much testing, It' wasnt possible to see
For what man had kept unknown
For no matter how much had been blown
Just to make this plastic heart

( We had been doomed from the start)

The greed, the love, the kind, the dumb
Anger, sadness, and all above
Could never be computed
Into a plastic heart
So a century has gone by, construction has halted and has died
Upon a hill a thousand foot heart stands


The only thing left on earth is the plastic heart and the dirt
For which it rests upon, dear music forgive our stars

So on the doomed humanity
The wrong looked up and faced the sea
To see what they had sought
The death of all we are

The trouble we put in
To make a plastic heart
Track Name: John
Some see the world as a rosy garden
Some see the world as black and white and red
But you showed me a brand new scene
Don't you see, see, I'll show you what I mean

You've been so kind to me
You saw a man with the ability to speak
Though soon I'll be off to sleep
I wanna say, you've been nothing but an angel to me

Some see the world but only when the sun goes down
And some don't even see at all
But they can feel and I think they're feeling me
And for a moment even everyone can see

You've been so kind to me
You saw a man with the ability to speak
Though soon I'll be off to sleep
I wanna say, you've been nothing but an angel to me

When time has passed
After I am gone
Can you take a moment
For young John
It went so fast
Sometimes it felt so long
But maybe now I'm where I belong

You've been so kind to me
You saw a man with the ability to speak
Though soon I'll be off to sleep
I wanna say, you've been nothing but an angel to me
Mmm mm mmm
an angel to me
Mmm mm mmm
an angel to me
Track Name: So Long, King Kong
Far 'way in Hollywood
there's a broken motion picture
It's not by Ed Wood, no
not quite the Mona Lisa

But it's a work made with hands
fake hands
made of wax
It's a piece made with blood
fake blood
so relax

Bah bah bum
Bah bum
Bah bah bum

They came across some cash
these newly graduated film-buffs
For love of monster mash
they spent it all on reels and grey stuff

They dreamed of making a film
Horror
with some laughs
Too bad that Horror won't sell
Oh well
oh well

So long
King Kong
It seems your genre's had it's day
It's not
your fault
'Cause in the end all things must change
In the end
in the end
So travel well, my friend
Track Name: Tomorrow
Takin' the bus home
Saw momma on the phone
She said her dog passed
But hey, a pet dies every day
The pain, it won't last
The pain, it'll pass
Well, no shit
But that don't make it go away

Hey mom, I know it's hard
But I can't see you in the yard
Playin' fetch with the ghost of your saint-bernard
So please stay on the line, I'll talk you through tonight
Maybe you'll feel a little better in tomorrow's light

All that I know
is never let go
Wait for tomorrow
and all the hope that day brings
All that I know (I know)
is never let go (let go)
Wait for tomorrow (tomorrow)
and all the hope that day brings

Forgot another pill
Let slip another bill
It's times like these we beg and plead, still
with our heads all bowed beneathe our knees
No support comin' in from society, well

It's just another step
so take it and don't look back
Don't say that saying cause you know it's full of crap
that the only one who can save you is you, it ain't true
It's all wrong cause mom we're here for you

All that I know
is never let go
Wait for tomorrow
and all the hope that day brings
All that I know (I know)
is never let go (let go)
Wait for tomorrow (tomorrow)
and all the hope that day brings

So if you're sad, you can let us know
It's okay to feel sad just please don't let go

All that I know
is never let go
Wait for tomorrow
and all the hope that day brings
All that I know (I know)
is never let go (let go)
Wait for tomorrow (tomorrow)
and all the hope that day brings

Tomorrow [x7]
