"Monsters" Lyrics

by Derrick Bostrom in


ATTACKED BY MONSTERS C’monna y’wanna / Surely gonna mike it a try / Chaquita, I needa / Cut me off a piece of ya... / Attacked by monsters / Kissing dogs  / Smokin’ and pokin’ / Changin’ in the blink of an eye / Fly high by / My window at night / Attacked by monsters  / Lately a message / Talks about a place in the world / Little by little / The mystery begins to uncurl / Snakey’s awakey / And he wants a little piece of the pie / C’monna y’wanna / Surely this’ll cause ya to die

LIGHT

Firey Spider / Candy stars in bloom / Crystal fire fractures / Sparks into the room / Shadow seams have opened / Right inside the blaze to / Catch the spinning / Light...  / Flaming river / Burning in the sky / Falls in silence  / Over land to dry / Gathering the elepahnts / Turning light to day / Benether the currents / Light...  / Luminescence / Essence of the will / Time and fire / Turning buring still / Upon the hour table / Dreams of light are laid / But I’m not slepping / Light...

LIKE BEING ALIVE

Tie me up / Get it right / Pull the knots  / Good and tight / Toss me in a car / Take us out for a ride / This is almost like being alive  / I’m not here / I’m nowhere / Someplace else / I don’t care / Give me half an hour / Let me know when you arrive / This is almost like being alive  / Night is here / Time stands still / All things move / Outside will / Lock me in the shower / Stamp the door when you arrive / This is almost like being alive

UPON A STORM

I can’t see the stars / So I look up to the storm / I put away my dreams / Now I take them out to warm / Between the skies the clouds are shining / Just to take another form / Wish upon a storm...  / The horseshoe on the wall / Took a tumble to the floor / I’m gonna hammer nails / Hang the storm above my door / You know this atmosphere is crazy / So they let it slip away / Wish upon a storm...

IN LOVE

Sand man wakes the islans / Over Corals Bay / Wishes buring captive / Pushing time away / In Love...  / Disappearing pictures / Falling from the sky / Sand man in the shallows / Asking how I ever got so much / In love...  / Sometimes always captures / Always slips around / Love is linen shrouded / And it like lion down / In love...

TOUCHDOWN KING

He’s got a kind of stupifying attutude / You almost see those little wing shoes / Like a light, almost shining through the air / He’s a touchdown king  / The air is energy whenever he’s around / With bolts of lightning from the ground / Like the wind, almost flying through the air / He’s a touchdown king  / He’s handsome hard breaks on the wrong side of the line / Time and time again he’s out of time / Like a light, almost shining through the air / He’s a touchdown king

MELTDOWN

It’s out of wire / It’s under grown / It’s out of line / It’s just question  / Of what you know / Meltdown...  / Too good / Too real / Five aces / A square deal / Mealtdown...  / It’s what it is / It’s what it’s not / And all in all / It’s just a question  / Of what you got / Meltdown...

STRINGS ON YOUR HEART

I see it, I get it / To find it below / You know me, your fire / But I can’t let go / In silence, through canyons / Of motion we start / Beyond us, these motions / Emerge from the dark  / Now I’m tied up in circles / So I won’t fall apart / Tied up and tangled / Strings on your heart  / It’s clouded in mystery / Surrounding your heart / It stumbles to finish / Before it can start / In silence, through canyons / Of motion we start / Beyond us, these motions / Emerge from the dark

PART TIL THE WORLD OBEYS

They draw the line you cannot see / They build the cage that sets you free / They drop the word from up above / They crack the whip you’ve grown to love / Say what? / Party til the world obeys...  / They pull the load with all your might / They make you blind to fix your sight / You fly with wings into their snare / They sell you tickets to thin air / Say what? / Party til the world obeys...
