Default Monuments (the song)

from the BBC streaming



Can anybody else work on the lyrics, please?

Monuments

I feel alright
I feel alright tonight
And everywhere I go is shining bright
alright! alright! alright!

Love can ___ you easy
As you'd know
And does this make you feel strong (?)
It's when ____
And you'd ____
I know, I know you'd ____!

Lover, you're strange
Lover, you're strange
Lover, you're strange to me

I feel alright
I feel alright tonight
And everywhere I go is shining bright
alright! alright! alright!

____
____
____
____

Lover, you're strange
Lover, you're strange
Lover, you're strange to me

And what do you want me to do?
It's all got mad!
And what do you want me to say?
I'm lost like you

I feel alright
I feel alright tonight
And everywhere I go is shining bright
alright! alright! alright!

Or maybe it just sounds fresher, given that we got tired of the other 4 songs (after listening to them three or four times).

It sounds pretty good but the lyrics are so bad that it makes the song cringe worthy

Well, we've now heard more than half of the album already. What do we think of the album, Monuements to an Elegy?

if all you do is come on here to post the same thing for every song, then you're pretty much a huge troll

Decent song. Slightly offputting lyrics as usual, which aren't as easily ignorable as others because of fillers like "alright alright alright". Unfortunate dynamic range, it would have a much bigger impact if the quiet parts were actually quieter.

I like the synth holding the one note while the bass and guitar riff around it.

This song, as the other 4, won't stick for long.

I actually like the lyrics, not in a poetic sense but the alright alright alright, comes across like he has sorta given up. Also, I like the "Lovah, you're strange" and "what do you want me to do, it's all gone mad".

it is lazy but it seems like a song about someone who has surrendered and become lazy.

"Surrendered and become lazy" should be the name of this album

Seriously
The man feels alright, let him sing about it!

I actually think its maybe the coolest song Billy's done since 'Dross' (not as cool obviously).

Its not supposed to be poetic. Think its just about moving on from a girl and not feeling broken up about it and feeling...alright.

ya, I think it is pretty cool. I think he could have spent a bit more time on the lyrics but I love the sound of the song, I am excited the others specially Anaise!
