The Narrative - Monoliths Lyrics


The Narrative posted a new Medium entry wrote by Jesse talking about the process of writing a song. "Lyrics have always been as much of a joy as a struggle for me, but the older I get the more I grapple with my lyrical multiple personalities." he writes. 

 The post also talks about the meaning of the new song "Monoliths". Here's the lyrics:

It was cold in Atlanta

A frigid wind dragged you in

Sat you down beside my kin


And we drove to Savannah

Sullen trees bearing leaves

Susurrating in the breeze


Somewhere there’s a fever rising up

Hearts apprised of universal dust

But if it’s not enough it’s not enough

The monoliths of metal turn to rust


When we bailed out of Georgia

There was fire in the air

Orphaned houses everywhere


So you wept in a corner

Singing names of your friends

Who you’ll never hold again


Somewhere there’s a fever rising up

Hearts apprised of universal dust

And if it’s not enough it’s not enough

The monoliths of metal turn to rust


I’ve been waiting for this

For years for you

Walking around these heads in the ground

I’ve been stowing patience

For years for you

What do you need? 

What do you need me to do?


Somewhere there’s a fever rising up

Hearts apprised of universal dust

And if it’s not enough it’s not enough

The monoliths of metal turn to rust

 Jesse affirms that "Monoliths is a fantasy song. It’s meant to express a thought or opinion through a romanticized version of something that never existed except inside of my head." also break down the lyrics from the song.
