Bob Mould – Monument lyrics
The end of the circle
Tides that roll and sway
Follow in my wake, come my way
Keeping it simple
Wants replaced by needs
Follow in my wake, come my way

Monument, statue made from your regret
Permanent, we create the perfect life
That time will never die
To keep ourselves alive, day by day

There's no protection here
Blowing wind and pouring rain
Overwhelming sadness floods my brain

How do I keep searching, hoping?
Waiting for the sun
That always shines so bright on everyone

Monument, I create so confident
Walls of sound that keep the sky from falling down
I live in a cloud of endless dreams
Floating so high above everything
I try to be happy every day
But my black heart, it burns
The white ash gets the turn
I never ever learn
But that's my way

Monument, past away, yeah
Permanent, that's OK, yeah
I live in a cloud of endless dreams
I floated so high above everything
I tried to be happy every day
But my black heart, it burned
The white ash gets a turn
I never ever learned
