about

Monochrome is a shimmering monolith bemoaning the day-to-day stresses and anxieties of the modern workplace in Austerity Britain, apparently.

lyrics

We’re monochrome our lights are low,
In a room where no one goes,
A mystery, a sea of cold,
With nothing for you to hold.

A thousand hours of silence,
Constant black and white,
Constant black and white,
A stillness that’s violent,
We can move, our eyes are wide,
But we can’t see inside.

A metronomic constant beat,
That anchors your head and your feet,
Distances all vacuum sealed,
And nothing for you to feel.

A thousand hours of silence,
Constant black and white,
Constant black and white,
A stillness that’s violent,
We can move, our eyes are wide,
But we can’t see inside.

Bay of Rainbows, tranquil sea,
A desert of dust on a beach,
A motion-free Sargasso Sea,
The door is locked and there’s no key.

A thousand hours of silence,
Constant black and white,
Constant black and white,
A stillness that’s violent,
We can move, our eyes are wide,
But we can’t see inside.
