about

After nearly a year in production, Space Monster is releasing its ambitious full-length debut, "Abduction." Packed with dense psychedelic grooves and aggressive funk, "Abduction" is an album that defies the constraints of genre and the "four-minute radio song," giving the listener a unique music experience intended to be listened to as a whole. Lyrical themes include self-assertion, modern isolation, and an open perspective that blurs the lines between aggressor and victim, the familiar and the foreign. Whether you enjoy blues, rock, reggae, funk, or anything in between, "Abduction" will fit in any music collection, and with cover art and a comic book insert designed by Timothy Irwin, it'll look good going there.

Track Name: Magic Warro
My triumphant ride
The day I thought I'd die
We rode all through the night
Just to see my baby's eyes

Me and my steed
Dirt in my teeth
All I can feel is the cold in the breeze

I've been riding on a horse
Across the starry sky
And I just seem a ghost as I ride on through the night
All my life I laid behind me
As I soar on out of sight
On a race through time and space, my love
To find the morning light
Track Name: Mongol
Struggle
I seem to find you around
Around much more than I'd like
But you will not keep me down
You will not keep me down
I will, I will stand my ground, stand my ground and fight

So don't tell me
What I can and cannot do
I am able now, I am able now and always
Its all a state of mind
Whose eyes you're looking through
And whether or not
you want to make a change

I can fly as high as I want to
Its all up to me
I can fly as high as I want to
Its all up to me

Its all a state of mind
Its all a state of mind
Its all a state of mind

And whose eyes youre looking through
And whether or not
you to make a change
Track Name: Handcut Mountain Blues
Gonna buy me a river
gonna charge you eight bucks a gallon
Buy me a river
gonna charge you right bucks a gallon
Wrote my name upon a sign
I post it up, that makes it mine
Gonna buy me a river
Start charging eight bucks a gallon

Well if you're a fisherman
best take your boat out to sea
Well if you're a fisherman
best take you're boat out to sea
You pony up for rod and reel, well
First you gotta pay me
Well if you're a fisherman
Best take your boat out to sea

Dam on up the mountain
Hold back the flood
Dam on up the mountain, you gotta
Hold back that flood
Well you got your pretty needs
So I bought myself this gun
Its gonna turn all this water
Into a river of blood

Is this just a dream?
Its more real than the waking world
Prosperity's promise
The blind are going deaf
And I just need a home
I just pray there's something left

The answer to your question
Great wall of silence

Move into the river
Sweep away the sorrow
Caught a glimpse of everyone
Come on folks, come and dip your soul in it
Seeing past perspective
Love is all that's free
And these games we play for sport and purpose
They're draining it all out of me
All out of me

The answer to your question
Great wall

Buy a revolution
Watch it from a tower in the sky
Buy a revolution while your
sons and daughters die
Well you had your home, your lives, your things
And I'll do with them as I please
Gonna buy a revolution
I couldn't buy me any peace
Track Name: Skat
A scream / A crash / Falling glass
My love / taken / in a flash
Huddling in a burnt out @#!*% , clutching my radio
I see my reflection in the sky and there is nowhere left to go

Run! Skat! / When Mars attacks!
Run! Skat! / Aliens coming out of the black
Run! Skat! / Shotgun's in a box in the back
Run! Skat! / When Mars attacks!
All we need to go is all we need to know

No screams / or cries / tear-filled eyes
Could save / our world / from its demise
Enveloped in a cool blue light I hear the sweetest sound
Catching my breath I'm in a blur as my feet leave the ground

Run! Skat! / When Mars attacks!
Run! Skat! / Aliens coming out of the black
Run! Skat! / Shotgun's in a box in the back
Run! Skat! / When Mars attacks!
All we need to go is all we need to know
Mmm you better run
You better skat
You better run, skat / When Mars attacks!

You can erase the future
You can forget the past
Trapped forever in this moment
Just wait for it to pass
And leave / the memory / alone
And search / the stars / for a new home
Its not like they even know who we are
Watching us from so far

Run! Skat! / When Mars attacks!
Run! Skat! / Aliens coming out of the black
Run! Skat! / Shotgun's in a box in the back
Run! Skat! / When Mars attacks!
All we need to go is all we need to know
