about

heart·less \
adjective \ härtləs \

1. displaying a complete lack of feeling or compassion.
2. without a heart; specifically, without emotion, or concern for others



"Big Monster consistently delivers memorably fun pop music. You might hear bouncing synths or calm piano, strummed acoustics or crunchy leads, bit-crushed drum machines or booming toms, all in the same song. Dynamic vocals waver, whisper, tease, and always contain signature Big Monster attitude." - Viska: Artist Spotlight (MN)

Track Name: Cursed
Got to let it go...

Even in the silence, I hear it
Even in the distance, I'm still near it
Even in the darkness, I see it
Even in the doubt, I still believe it

Hope, they say
Hope it goes away
One day the demons are gonna let go
Hope, they say
Hope it goes away
So I can step up and claim my throne

Then the clouds come and I can't see the sun
The times it shines are for what I long
The monsters I feel I know are not real
But I only know that when they're gone

Even in the emptiness, I feel it
Even in the daylight, I still dream it
Even in the chaos, I'm waiting
Even in the pain, when my heart is breaking

..

Hope and pray, pray for the strength
Head out to battle on my own
Don't dismay, I fight and I slay
Killing the demons to rescue my soul

Then the clouds come and I can't see the sun
The times it shines are for what I long
The monsters I feel I know are not real
But I only know that when they're gone
Track Name: Warrior
Await not the quiet of the coming horses
Amidst such strange and unusual forces
Go tell the king, try to take his crown
Beware the sky come crumbling down
If you hide your eyes and show your heart
Like a shadow, you shall depart

(Eh, eh, eh) sacrifices must be made
(Eh, eh, eh) it's the price we all must pay
(Eh, eh, eh) the warriors lie in wait
(Eh, eh, eh) show no mercy and show no pain

Unearthly fires from the sky will flash
Winds blow mountains and the thunders crash
Go count the sand and measure the sea
An army of lions led by a sheep
Like children in the wilderness
Lost in the carnage they created

...

Cowards flee and shed their tears
Cowards run, can't face their fears
Cowards hide and they are the first to die
Track Name: Legends
If I'm the ice, you're the fire
C'mon baby, baby won't you burn a little brighter
If you're the stone, then I'm the sea
C'mon baby, baby won't you sink in me

I hear your voice blowing on the wind
I feel the breeze like the touch of your skin
I see the dreams again and again
Beckoning me like the song of the siren

We could be legends, painted on stone
Forged in the fires and carved out of bone
We could be myths, a story that's told
Of a love on which time never took its toll

If I'm the sun, you're the sky
C'mon baby, baby won't you let me shine
If you're the moon, then I'm the tide
C'mon baby, baby won't you make me rise


Aren't we just human, full of deceit?
How many have you made to fall on their knees and weep?
Or are we heroes, sent from above,
Eating their hearts in the name of love?
Track Name: Like the Tide
Storms raging on the roaring seas
An endless ocean of you and me
But all who dare to brave the storm
Never last for very long

And none have made it through
None except for you
My first, my last, forever and never
But in the stars we ever together

A love like the tide
Comes rolling back every time
And if one day it don't come back
If one day we never have
I will love you until I die

I left my home cause I couldn't stop
I couldn't shut the monster up
But some part of you is always here
And in the darkness I find it near

I learned a cruel truth
There's nowhere I can go without you
My first, my last, forever and never
But in the stars we ever together

A love like the tide
Comes rolling back every time
And if one day it don't come back
If one day we never have
I will love you until I die
Track Name: Imagine Our Love
When I can't sleep at night, I lay awake until I break
Thoughts in my mind, placing blame and lighting flames
Burning deep inside, I made mistakes, a trace remains
When I close my eyes, it's too late

Yes, no, maybe so, might have been, we'll never know

Imagining the love that never was
It's so hard to say goodbye, that's why we didn't even try

Back and forth, all the options I debate, I can't erase
I should cut my losses, too afraid to embrace the pain
Got to clear my conscience before decay, what will it take
To turn it off like a faucet, down the drain it swirls away

Yes, no, maybe so, might have been, we'll never know

Imagining the love that never was
It's so hard to say goodbye, that's why we didn't even try

We weren't made for each other, meant to love another
We weren't made to last forever, we weren't meant to be together
