about

Monsters Of The Ordinary Vienna, Austria

As to their name, MONSTERS OF THE ORDINARY perform the gentle art of understatement,
because ordinary usually sounds different:
the four Vienna-based musicians thunder a thrilling mix of stoner rock, blues rock and psychedelic rock at us, carried by a - naturally monstrous - voice of orchestral range.

Track Name: Open Up Your Eyes
You see him standing proud
You see him shouting at the crowd
His words crawl in your head
But their true meaning stays unsaid

You’ll be surprised what he can do
Then it’s too late to choose anew

So take my hand
Take a stand
Don’t let these thoughts get in your head
Take my hand
Take a stand
Cause what you see is what you get

Open up your eyes now
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes now
Open up your eyes

You see them march with pride
You see they need no longer hide
Why don’t you realize
That you're the reason for their rise

Don’t be surprised what they could do
Now it’s too late to play the fool

So take my hand
Take a stand
Don’t let these thoughts get in your head
Take my hand
Take a stand
Cause what you see is what you get

Open up your eyes now
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes now
Open up your eyes

Why are you too blind to see
That hate and fear will always be
Fertile ground for blatant lies
Beware and open up your eyes
Your eyes
Track Name: To The City And The World
You drown in your sea of lights
You break from your own glue
You smile at your ignorance
You rise anew

You dream while you’re wide awake
You fade into blazing lights
You choke on dead hands long passed
You black your whites
You black your whites

Breaking silence silently
Stopping violence violently
Doesn’t matter what you do
Still I fall for you

Breaking silence violently
Stopping violence silently
Doesn’t matter what you do
Still I fall for you

I know that this place is gonna keep me in her womb
I know that this place is gonna be my darkest tomb
I know that this place is gonna break me when I bend
I know that this place is gonna choke me in the end

I know that this place is gonna keep me in her womb
I know that this place is gonna be my darkest tomb
I know that this place is gonna break me when I bend
I know I will stay with you until the very end

I know that that you are gonna keep me in your womb
I know that that you are gonna be my darkest tomb
I know that that you are gonna break me when I bend
I know in the end
Track Name: In Your Head
Somebody’s talking behind your back
You turn around but no one’s there
There is no doubt that you’re on your own
Still voices come from everywhere

All that emotion flooding your head
You start to shiver and shake
The human mind is a fragile thing
Bend it too far and it will break

It’s way too much for one to take
You need a break, remember it’s all

Woah yeah – in your head
Woah yeah – in your head

Think back how everything began
Seems like a whisper in your ear
You’ve seen it coming for many years
Time has run out, at last it’s here

You wonder what has happened to you
All of your life you’ve feared this day

Woah yeah – in your head
Woah yeah – in your head

You turn around, no one’s there
You turn around, no one’s there
You turn around, no one’s there
You turn around, no one’s there
You turn around, no one’s there
You turn around, no one’s there
You turn around, no one’s there
Turn around

Woah yeah – in your head
Woah yeah – in your head (remember it’s all)
Woah yeah – in your head
Woah yeah – in your head
Track Name: Wills It Not
Radicals around the globe
Institutions, uniform or robe
Zealots send your boys through hell
Through love or war they will serve you well

Rapists
Sexists
Chauvinists
(No - God wills it not)
Racists
Fascists
Terrorists
(No - God wills it not)

Believers ain’t the ones to blame
Agitators sell salvation and fame
Crescent moon and holy cross
Prophets profit from human loss

Rapists
Sexists
Chauvinists
(No - God wills it not)
Racists
Fascists
Terrorists
(No - God wills it not)

It’s been the same throughout our history
The human race ain’t gonna learn
As long as we fight for fanatics
Religious symbols are gonna burn

No – God wills it not
No – God wills it not
No – God wills it not
No – God wills it not
No – God wills it not
No – God wills it not
No – God wills it not
No – God wills it not
Track Name: What's In It For You
Only bloodshed has remained
Made the same mistakes again
Pen and paper to the test
Try to give your best

It’s just frustration and misery
Standing there with you not listening
But I know that you don’t care
Wasting time walking on air

What’s in it for you?
The gain you’re going through
What’s in it for you?

Abilities learnt but not applied
Ignorance followed by denial
Make the same mistakes again
Bloodshed will remain

It’s just frustration and misery
Standing there with you not listening
But I know that you don’t care
Wasting my time better beware

What’s in it for you?
The pain you’re going through
What’s in it for you?

It’s just frustration and misery
Standing there with you not listening
But I know that it’s not fair
Stealing my time but I don’t care

But what’s in it for you?
The pain you’re going through
What’s in it for you?
The pain you’re going through
What’s in it for you?
The pain you’re going through
What’s in it for you?
The pain you’re going through
Track Name: Tripsitter
Where have you gone?
Just disappeared without a trace
The world starts to turn
Sensations lost to time and space

Colourful shapes
Coming from honest reverence
All these nightmares
Hiding behind sweet innocence

In liquid fire
The sky is crying with a grin
Waves crashing down
Drowning in waters from within

Lying awake
The demon rears its ugly face
Come with me now
I’ll take you to a safer place

No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
There’s no need to be …

No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
No need to be afraid now
There’s no need to be afraid
Track Name: Ashes To Ashes
If love had a name
It once had yours
If love was a game
You lifted the scores

If love was a fire
You were the spark
Your love was a pyre
Consuming the dark

The embers are burning down low
The heat leaves a stain
The fire once strong has gone out
Ashes will remain
Ashes will remain

If love was to part
I broke the bond
Our love broke apart
There’s no beyond

The embers are burning down low
The heat leaves a stain
The fire once strong has gone out
Just ashes will remain
Ashes to ashes again

The embers are burning down low
The heat leaves a stain
The fire once strong has gone out
Ashes will remain
Ashes will remain
Ashes ease the pain
Ashes to ashes again

Our love found an end
Ashes remain
No need to pretend
It’s all the same
The embers burned out
There’s no more pain
The fire’s long gone
Ashes to ashes again
