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

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

04 The Mummy 03:54
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

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 (x2)

07 I Vampiri 03:20
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)

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.
