The Narrative shares new song Monoliths lyrics on Medium post
The band posted a long letter about their lyrical writing and Monoliths
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.
Hey all! So, as some of you may have heard via the Twitter, we’ve got a new track coming out on 6/14 called Monoliths and I wanted to take some time to talk about the lyrics for the song, and lyrics in general. I thought it might be an interesting topic to explore, but of course if you don’t care I completely respect your decision (in Minecraft).
The post also talks about the meaning of the new song "Monoliths". Here's the lyrics:
Monoliths LyricsIt was cold in AtlantaA frigid wind dragged you inSat you down beside my kinAnd we drove to SavannahSullen trees bearing leavesSusurrating in the breezeSomewhere there’s a fever rising upHearts apprised of universal dustBut if it’s not enough it’s not enoughThe monoliths of metal turn to rustWhen we bailed out of GeorgiaThere was fire in the airOrphaned houses everywhereSo you wept in a cornerSinging names of your friendsWho you’ll never hold againSomewhere there’s a fever rising upHearts apprised of universal dustAnd if it’s not enough it’s not enoughThe monoliths of metal turn to rustI’ve been waiting for thisFor years for youWalking around these heads in the groundI’ve been stowing patienceFor years for youWhat do you need?What do you need me to do?Somewhere there’s a fever rising upHearts apprised of universal dustAnd if it’s not enough it’s not enoughThe monoliths of metal turn to rust
