Craig Maxwell I frigging love this album. I came across it by sheer luck (typically I would avoid any albums with French album or band names, but the cover art drew me in). This album is just absolutely amazing. These guys have a very unique sound, and I can't stop listening to it. I would have to say this is probably my favorite album that I have listened to in all my time on Bandcamp. Favorite track: Waves.

about

Les Monstres Terribles Toronto, Ontario

Good Evening.

We were born on a haunted island where it always rains but have since run away from it. We have come to rest at the foot of a small mountain in a city that is constantly trying to kill us. These are the choices we have made.

Please watch your step.

Track Name: Moving Day
take this pill for me
settle down
don’t tell me what’s wrong
i’ve seen it all

hey don’t you cry
hey don’t you cry

pack your things
we’re going home
here hold my hand
so i can feel your pain

hey don’t you cry
hey don’t you cry

pick yourself up off the ground
i will carry you
i will never let you down
i will carry you

hey don’t you cry
hey don’t you cry
Track Name: Insomnia
insomnia
stole my dreams
she keeps me up
so i can’t sleep
her skin so smooth
her outlook bleak
i haven’t closed my eyes
in over a week

my body’s worn out
my hands always shake
i go to lie down
i can’t wake

insomnia
i miss you
you can keep me up all night
if you like
my first friend
my last friend
i’ll stick with you
until the end
Track Name: Asterix
i will follow you in
to the bottom of that bottle of gin
and i know that in time
you and i will both lose our minds
and i don’t mind
being unstable

my child my child my child
do you know this game?
it starts with 1 2 3 4 5 6
my child my child my child
do you know your name?
it starts with abc asterix

and i will follow you home
because i can’t leave you alone
don’t leave me alone
and i know that in time
you and i will be of the same mind
and i don’t mind
being stable

my child my child my child
do you know my face?
it must be far too far away
for you to see
my child my child my child
do you know your place?
it’s right here with me

1 2 3 4 5
you make me feel so alive
6 7 8 9 10
i never want this to end
Track Name: Waves
washed away in waves and drums
lose yourself in electric hum
part the waves into couples
drink them up until you are full

wash away the dirty layers
electric hum keeps you aware
keep your finger on the pulse
unconscious of all your troubles

seal your lungs and wait for air
Track Name: That Melody
when i met you
when i met you
in a darkened back seat
at a quarter past two
i could’ve sworn
i could’ve Sworn
that i’d seen your face
somewhere before
and if i was wrong
if i was Wrong
i was going to make you feel
like you knew me all along
because when i met you
when i met you
the look that you gave me
it pierced me right through
pierced me right through


when i met you
when i met you
sitting beside you
i thought that i knew
that you liked me too
yeah, you liked me too
and trying not to move
was all i could do
and if i was wrong
if i was wrong
then everything i ever knew
before this was wrong
because when i met you
when i met you
i heard a melody
and i hummed it for you

when i’m with you
when i’m with you
the darker it gets
the more you shine through
the more i can see
the more i can see
the lungs in your chest
are breathing for me
and if i am wrong
if i am wrong
then why the fuck am i
even singing this song
because when i’m with you
when i’m with you
this old broken husk
feels childish and new
Track Name: End Of The Road
sun goes cold
starry night
starry night
we grow old
without a fight
without a fight
check your pulse
turn out the light
turn out the light
when we go
we’ll be alright
we’ll be alright

now don’t you give up
don’t give up

my child
go inside
go inside
i’ll tuck you in
just stay quiet
just stay quiet

now don’t you get up
now don’t you get up
don’t get up
Track Name: Sleepwalking
(instrumental)
Track Name: Graveyard Shift
hard work
push! dig! bend! pull!
sweat! hurt! break! again!
do it for the money
do it for the money

sitting on the corner
watching my old ass get older
i’m running out of time
i’m not feeling very high
i’ve got two nickels and one dime
now along comes a woman
and she’s got my body cooking
cuz she’s giving me the eye
oh why, i don’t know why
i’m not a very good-looking guy
then she comes up to me
and whispers in my ear
(do it for the money
do it for the money)
why don’t you work for me
and i will get you out of here
(do it for the money
do it for the money)

hard work
push! dig! bend! pull!
sweat! hurt! break! again!
do it for the money
do it for the money

she takes me to the cemetary
things are looking kinda scary
what is up with this?
was there something that i missed?
this doesn’t seem very legit
so she puts a shovel in my hand
and points towards a piece of land
and makes me dig a hole
and puts a gun up to my skull
and says that now she’s in control
then she pushes me in
and i fall onto my knees
(did it for the money
did it for the money)
i look back up at her
and say please oh please oh please
(did it for the money
did it for the money)
don’t do this

hard work
push! dig! bend! pull!
sweat! hurt! break! again!
did it for the money
did it for the money

i’m being buried alive
Track Name: Crows
crows in the night
follow my flight
follow my flight
follow my flight
nowhere to turn
we’re going to burn
we’re going to burn
we’re going to
burn burn burn burn burn burn
burn burn burn burn burn burn
burn burn burn burn burn burn
burn burn burn burn burn burn

cracked skull
splayed wing
forget everything

ring around the rosies
pockets full of posies
ashes to ashes
we all fall down
