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: Exes & Ohs
there is a scent of sweetness
in the air that you cannot trust
it is a scar on your body
your body is made up of dust
it is a crack in your window
it is a chink in your armour
you'd reap the seeds that you've sown
but you are not a farmer
scarecrow
scarecrow
scarecrow

paint a picture with teardrops
she's made of charcoal skin
she has left a smear on your shoulder
she is stark white and thin
now through a crack in your window
the image still moves
through your body it shudders
and the weight is removed
too slow
too slow

the salt in your stomach
that bitterest of tastes
through a crack in your window
you can still see her face
let go
let go
oh, let go
let go
Track Name: Uno
if he met her he couldn't kiss her
(perdóneme mi amor)
if he kissed her he couldn't hold her
(no puedo darte un beso)
if he held her he couldn't see her
(perdóneme mi amor)
If he saw her he couldn't know her
(perdón)

He could do only one thing at a time
He could do almost anything if he had the time

If he spoke he couldn't listen
(nunca me escuchas)
If he loved her he couldn't leave
(¿puede usted me ama?)
if he fought he couldn't win
if he moved he couldn't breathe
(note muevas mi querido)
he couldn't breathe
(mi querido)

he could do only one thing at a time
he could do almost anything if he had the time

he left no image in mirrors
he left no footprints in sand
he left no ripples in water
he was hardly a man
hardly a man
hardly a man

if he missed her he couldn't tell her
if he sought her he couldn't find her
Track Name: Letter From Purgatory
I don't wanna go down (to the bottom)
you can never be found (at the bottom)
such a lonely place (at the bottom)
you can never feel safe (at the bottom)
you can never be sure of yourself (at the bottom)
so why do you insist on fooling yourself (at the bottom)
you know you don't belong (at the bottom)
so why do you try and drag me along (the bottom)
it's your biggest mistake (at the bottom)
you can never awake (at the bottom)
you'll relive your regrets (at the bottom)
you can never forget (at the bottom)
you will only feel pain (at the bottom)
you will lose all your gains (at the bottom)
you'll be fed only lies (at the bottom)
you will probably die (at the bottom)
(at the bottom) die (at the bottom) die
(at the bottom) die (at the bottom) die
(at the bottom) die (at the bottom) die
(at the bottom) die (at the bottom) die

I dreamt you didn't make it and I tried going home but there were only dark windows and empty rooms
I couldn't get in
I'm sorry
I couldn't get in

somnium iam et sentio pacis
somnium iam et sentio pacis
pacis, pacis, dormio, morior

(at the bottom) (at the bottom) (at the bottom) (at the bottom)
(at the bottom) (at the bottom) (at the bottom) (at the bottom)

we are all going to die
morior! morior! morior!
