Why do we like this?

I think if the midnight sky and a night circus had to merge and come to life in technicolour as the display of imagination when the eyes are closed, I could comfortably call that the equivalent of Night Palace’s “Into The Wake, Mystified.”

“Why?” you might ask. To which I’d reply, “didn’t your grandma teach you not to ask so many questions?”

Obscurity aside, this song is dainty in sound and my goodness, it’s another one for the books when it comes to lyrics. As an avid fan of exceptional lyricism, I’m going to paste the lyrics below and let them speak for themselves. Enjoy.

I can’t forget you, I don’t try

To undo the latch of a hook and eye

I know I said I didn’t want you to stay the night

But it doesn’t really matter because

everything you do is golden

I can’t forget you, I don’t try

Can’t unhear the voice of a Lorelei

I dive into the wake, mystified

And nothing ever shatters

Because it’s just my time, and I’ve got plenty

Your eyes were bright like the diving rings

My grandmother threw into the pool

When I was a child

I can’t forget you, I don’t try

Can’t unhear the voice of a Lorelei

I dive into the wake, mystified

Two splintered halves of a Gemini
