Monument
Röyksopp Lyrics


Make a space
For my body
Dead or whole
Push this side apart
This is what I'm controlling
It's a mold, the inside that I cart

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
Soon when that moment comes,
I can say I did it all with love love love
All with love love love
All with love

Make a cast of my body
Pull back out,
So that I can see
Make a world
Are you ruling?
Make a world
That I used to be

I will let this monument
Represent a moment of my life life life
Of my life life life
Of my life
I will let this monument
Represent a moment of my life life life
Of my life life life
Of my life

Make a cast of my body
Pull back out,
So that I can see
Make a world
Are you ruling?
Make a world
That I used to be

I'm dying of renal cell carcinoma.  I'm currently on Opdivo, and it shows promise, but like the other chemos (votrient and afinitor) that I've been on, it too will stop being effective one day.  I cried uncontrollably when I heard this song.This is a death song.  An end of life song.  I hope that it's playing in my head in my final moment.  I want my two sons to know that they are my monument.  Make a space
For my body.
Dig a hole.
Push the sides apart.
This is what
I'm controlling.
It's a moat
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 love

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.

I will let this monument
Represent a moment of my life
Life, life
Of my life
Life, life
Of my life

I will let this monument
Represent a moment of my life
Life, life
Of my life
Life, life
Of my life

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.

We started writing Monument after playing around with a software that can stretch short bits of music into billions of years of sound. It made total sense to me that Max wanted to explore this floating feeling and mediation in the video...

Kevin McDonald

Don't care what you did to get that sound, but you definitely hit the hammer on the nail, and not the thumb as i so often do :-)

Felix Ronin

@Mekhi Nathaniel Checking it out now. Seems promising.

I mean what do you tell people when you already know you're awesome?
If this does not apply to the listener, then it's lacking the proper sound, and the listener needs to carry that to buy a new stereo, because this thing is epic.

If I had some type of audio filter, maybe I could sample the bass.
Just keeps it on when it hits repeat, so I can sample it more often, at a loud volume, with high resonant in the bass. Add some trebles.
Maybe stretch it, loop it.

I mean you're the musician, you need to gimme more of this awesome stuff.
