about

(to be read in the voice of a carnival ride operator) - Well wouldja look at that - this here's the album art for our latest recording, Behind You! S'pose it's also a zine of sorts. Each song is about a different monster - some more obvious than others….(the imagined ride operator cackles and then disappears in a *poof*)

The album is dedicated to Oscar, Phoenix, Isabel, Jason and Tom Petty with love and thanks for the inspiration and joy they've given us all.

Blue Cougars would like to thank: Aefa Mullholland, Carly Beath, Ray McIlroy, Richelle Ludwick, Mark D'Amico, Gosia Komorski, Calla McCord, Holly Thomas, Tim Condon, The Handy Wagon and Lisa Conway and Andrew Collins at The Wildlife Sanctuary Studios for all their help and contributions to the Cougz cause. Thanks to our friends, family, the Chucies, Nino, Omelette, Heifer and Reggie. We would also like to thank you for taking the time and taking an interest - thank you very much.

XO

Track Name: 01 My Monster
My Monster


Darling, oh darling
My eyelids are getting heavy
When I close my eyes
That's the last you’ll see of me

Me and my monster


The darkness outside
Has an inviting glow
At least I think so
Surprising

Me and my monster


Can you see my/Monster
Can you feel my/Monster
Can you be my/Monster


Mirrors are just vestiges
For hope
Things are heavy everywhere
For me and my


Can you see my/Monster
Can you feel my/Monster
Can you be my/Monster
Can you see my/Monster
Can you feel my/Monster
Can you be my/Monster

Wolfman


I won’t do what you tell me to say
I won’t do what you tell me to say
No I won’t
No I won’t

Cause I’m the Wolfman, Wolfman, Wolfman

Creepin’ round your garden late at night
You won’t see me cuz I’ll stay outta sight
That’s right
I’m gonna stay outta sight

Cause I’m the Wolfman, Wolfman, Wolfman


Wolf Wolf
Wolf Wolf
Wolf Wolf
Wolf Wolf
Wolfman Wolfman Wolfman!

I’m howlin’ at the moon, baby, for you
I’m howlin’ at the moon, baby, for you
I’m howlin’ at the moon, baby
OWwowowwow
Track Name: 03 The Creature
The Creature


I had a nightmare
You were in it
You were a creature
You are a creature

The creature from the black lagoon


You crept up behind me
Your fingers were out
I didn’t see you
Until it was too late


The creature
The creature
The creature
The creature from the black lagoon


You’re swimming around
You follow me down
When I turn around
There you are


Are you a man in a suit
Or a long lost dinosaur
Who can tell


I had a nightmare
You were in it
You were a creature


The creature
The creature
The creature
The creature
Track Name: 04 The Mummy
The Mummy


I woke up to find that something was missing
My heart in a jar beside my bed
Someone had come along while I was sleeping
And stolen my heart and got in my head


I've been looking and looking and looking and looking
To find someone like you
I've been searching and searching
For the one who stole my heart


At first I didn't know where to start looking
So I got on a plane and flew to New York
LaGuardia airport was filled with people
I looked and a I looked but I couldn't find you


I've been looking and looking and looking and looking
To find someone like you
I've been searching and searching
For the one who stole my heart


I walked and I stalked through the park at night
By moonlight I shambled with endless resolve
I shuffled and stumbled my way up the stairway
I made my way to the Egyptian wing


And then I saw you
My heart in your hands
You were talking to some people
You knew all about me
I knew right away
That we had to be together
You were coming with me
To the land of forever
I hid in the corner
Till the museum closed
If I was gonna talk to you
It had to be alone
You turned off the lights
The timing was right
I walked up behind you and said


I've been looking and looking and looking and looking
To find someone like you
I've been searching and searching
You're the one who stole my heart
Track Name: 05 18th Century Boy
Frankenstein’s Monster


You take my hand
The hand that will be mine
And you sew it in
The place where it belongs

You take your thread
And make me something I abhor
You make yourself
A man from stuff from underground


When
Will
You want me


When
Will
You want me
When will you when will you will you
Want me back


You run away
I’m left here all alone
Alone by myself
I’ve really just been born

I don’t know why
You hate the thing you create
You make yourself
A man from stuff from underground


When
Will
You want me

Track Name: 06 Skunk Ape
Skunk Ape


Last night
When I got home
I watched the tape
On slo mo

OH MY GODD!
DID YOU JUST SEE
WHAT I JUST SAW
BEHIND THOSE TREES?

MK Davis
Says it’s real
And if MK Davis says it’s real
It’s real


Gait
Trees
Footprints
Camera


OH MY GODD!
DID YOU JUST SEE
WHAT I JUST SAW
BEHIND THOSE TREES?

BEHIND THOSE TREES/IT’S REAL
BEHIND THOSE TREES/IT’S REAL
BEHIND THOSE TREES/IT’S REAL
BEHIND THOSE TREES/IT’S REAL
IT’S REAL
IT’S REAL
IT’S REAL
IT’S REAL
Track Name: 07 I Vampiri
I Vampiri

Sleepwalk churchyard
Someone next to you
Chloral howling
Modern Morpheus
Shadows haunting you

You’re not the man that I knew


Sea fog rolling in
Closes on everything
Sailors missing
Someone’s on board with me
They’re all gone now

How will I get out alive


Hunt you down murder you
Drive a stake through you
Watching from far away
I see them killing you
Killing you

I’ll never believe that you’re dead

Monster (x3)
Track Name: 08 Dulcinea
(Instrumental)
