Lyrics


Monument

When the site was found

We laid the foundations down

It didn't take long before

They came back tumbling down

Don't build at night

You need a little light

How else are you going to see

What it is going to be like


So we picked up our tools

And we worked in the morning light

With the last stone placed

Wasn't it a wonderful site

But it fell back down

And scattered all around

Anything passes

When you need glasses


My monument

It fell down

My monument

It fell down


Work all of my days for this kind of praise

It fell down

Work all of my days

It fell down
