Kye's Music & Lyrics: Monument: The Inevitable End Version by Röyksopp (The Inevitable End, 2014)



Röyksopp



~~*~~



Make a space
for my body
Dig a hole,
push the side apart.

This is what
I'm controlling
it's a mould,
the inside that I carve.

This will be my monument,
this will be a beacon when I'm gone
gone
gone
when I'm gone...
gone
gone
when I'm gone...

So that when the moment comes,
I can say I did it all with love...
love
love
all with love...
love
love
all with...

Make a space
for my body
Dig a hole,
push the side apart.

This is what
I'm controlling
It's a mould,
the inside that I carve.

This will be my monument,
this will be a beacon when I'm gone
gone
gone
when I'm gone...
gone
gone
when I'm...

Make a cast
of my body
Pull back out,
so that I can see
Let go of
how you knew me
Let go of
what I used to be.

So that when the moment comes,
I can say I did it all with love
love
love
all with love...
love
love
all with love...
love
love
love
love
all with love...
love
love
all with...

This is a motivational song for me for writing,
and for living in general.
I cannot control the outcomes,
but I hope that my actions will send an echo through eternity.

Also, the way this song is arranged
and layered with its repeating,
echoing lyrics and its tireless
but steady rhythm is a structural mirror
to the meaning of the words.
Brilliant composition.
