Low – Monkey lyrics

Oh my my
Little white lies
I swear I'm gonna make it right
This time
It's not the radio
Turn it way down low
Telling me things I do not know I know

Tonight you will be mine
Tonight the monkey dies
Tonight you will be mine
Tonight the monkey dies

Now who's to blame

You used to be the same
Now you won't let me speak your name
What a shame
It's a suicide
Shut up and drive
We're never going to make the light
But it's all right

Tonight you will be mine
Tonight the monkey dies
Tonight you will be mine
Tonight the monkey dies

    I am trying to figure it out. Even more now that Robert Plant has done his own version. It sounds so wonderfully dark my imagination takes me away. I imagine a psycho boyfriend rushing out of the city to a dark, dark, country road to kill his girlfriend. Or, he is running a light he knows they can't make to kill them both. She has obviously let him down for the last time. That's what I'm hearing. The "monkey" is the bad feeling he has been carrying around for way too long and he needs to get it off his back, once and for all. Plant's version is even a little more eerie. We can only wonder.
