The Narrative posted a new Medium entry wrote by Jesse talking about the process of writing a song. "Lyrics have always been as much of a joy as a struggle for me, but the older I get the more I grapple with my lyrical multiple personalities." he writes. 

Hey all! So, as some of you may have heard via the Twitter, we’ve got a new track coming out on 6/14 called Monoliths and I wanted to take some time to talk about the lyrics for the song, and lyrics in general. I thought it might be an interesting topic to explore, but of course if you don’t care I completely respect your decision (in Minecraft).

The post also talks about the meaning of the new song "Monoliths". Here's the lyrics:

Monoliths Lyrics

It was cold in Atlanta
A frigid wind dragged you in
Sat you down beside my kin
 
And we drove to Savannah
Sullen trees bearing leaves
Susurrating in the breeze
 
Somewhere there’s a fever rising up
Hearts apprised of universal dust
But if it’s not enough it’s not enough
The monoliths of metal turn to rust
 
When we bailed out of Georgia
There was fire in the air
Orphaned houses everywhere
 
So you wept in a corner
Singing names of your friends
Who you’ll never hold again
 
Somewhere there’s a fever rising up
Hearts apprised of universal dust
And if it’s not enough it’s not enough
The monoliths of metal turn to rust
 
I’ve been waiting for this
For years for you
Walking around these heads in the ground
I’ve been stowing patience
 
For years for you
What do you need? 
What do you need me to do?
 
Somewhere there’s a fever rising up
Hearts apprised of universal dust
And if it’s not enough it’s not enough
The monoliths of metal turn to rust

Jesse affirms that "Monoliths is a fantasy song. It’s meant to express a thought or opinion through a romanticized version of something that never existed except inside of my head." also break down the lyrics from the song.
