Originally a studio project by Eoghan Holland, The Commercial Monsters formed organically over the course of making the 'Dreams' record and became sentient live band in the early 2010's featuring hand picked musicians from the North West music scene and guest appearances.

Track Name: The Big Black Clouds of Home
I watch the clouds from the floor and i feel happy
as an irishman feels cold when he's been without the rain
the shivers will climb my spine like a latter
inviting to my soul all the chills of better days


And we were talking in seats as the plane let down
where we watched the passengers wave to big black clouds,
the collective of my nightmares and the big black clouds of home
The big black clouds of home
The big black clouds of home

I wont yearn for the wonderful times you been having
i put the shell of the world to my ear - i will close my eyes and dream
and as i hold it there i will hear lake waters lapping
for i found my pot of gold, and i can leave without a trace

And we were talking in seats as the plane let down
where we watched the passengers wave to big black clouds,
the collective of my nightmares and the big black clouds of home
The big black clouds of home
The big black clouds of home
Track Name: Bird of Bee
There's a world where you run from and world where you get
I was running from the red line with a wren in my sight
smallest wing and deepest sky as i leave from my feet
through the bellows the the valleys and the crowdings of trees

Well we kicked earth by the railway till the burrows came free
we stole out from the village and the reach of the see
bird of bee, bread and water and a sheltering bough
bee of bird bred by the holly and the candlelit din

There's a world where you come from and world where you get
I was running for the red line with a wren in my sight
bird of bee, bread and water and a sheltering bough
bee of bird bred by the holly and the candlelit din
Track Name: St. Patrick
the red haired girls on the rolling hills
the grey browed men on the winding roads
the misty sky and the post of gold
its the hotel trade and the tourist board

I will chase the snakes for st. patrick
and he will come like the next u2
the clouds will melt like butter in the sun
with the four leaf clover and the dew

came the mobile calls and the galway shawls
the morish girls on the highest street
the franchise stores and the quaint antiques
and all that sells in a shade of green

and who would pay for your supper
for the scarlett wines and the uppers
i've been waiting on the four leaf clover
any day now
any day now
any day now
any day now

and the bouquets will lie in the gutter
on the great great road to tara
where the ghosts of the four leaf clover

holiday,
holiday,
holiday.

I've been waiting on the four leaf clover any day now
Track Name: New Years Tide
Ice cream and dew
and the fresh air and views
and the pastel palisades
and the buckets and the spades

The footsteps on the crumbling pier
and the tiny storms of sand
and the postcard sent without a word

No-one lives
in these coastal towns
but the ghosts of you and me
who've come to wet their feet

To walk out in the new years tide,
and the violent northern brew
to cleanse them of their silent summer blues

To walk out in the new years tide,
and the violent northern brew
to cleanse them of their silent summer blues
to cleanse them of their silent summer blues
to cleanse them of their silent summer blues
Track Name: Evergreens
somedays are evergreens
a swan on a black sea with me
somedays are evergreens

where we once were moved
where theyd spin the may fly

hilltops of evergreens
i carved in every tree
i made the livery to show
somedays are evergreens

and the dusk would lay in the pines
and the dusk would lay in the pines

somedays are evergreens
Track Name: Young Space Is
young space is all apart
and they will come easy autumn down
should you want them stick like the stars
then stick them up in the night

I'd been tried to send advice
but since i'd came all i'd seen
was hundreds of words, diaries of deeds
and all their ghosts sit next to me

should you want them here they are
young space is where they are

In the cold night bottle feed
and the canned heat DJ knows to stop
come the silence and let the old ghosts dance

I'd tried to send advice
but since i'd came all i'd seen
was hundreds of words, diaries of deeds
and all their ghosts sit next to me

should you want them here they are
young space is where they are
