In The Moonlight Dim

from by The Green Pajamas

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    ‘Death By Misadventure’ is a wacky exercise in psychedelia. Just accept that the moon is made of cheese and give Death By Misadventure a good listen, it’s well worth it. Mark Whitfield – Americana-UK

    “this is fine stuff, and in the tradition of all the best concept albums, is best enjoyed without trying to follow the somewhat dubious storyline … the Pajamas continue to do what they do best, namely tuneful acid-pop laced with inspired guitar work, harpsichords, a playful sense of English whimsy not heard since the late sixties, and naturally, choruses that sound like they’ve been plucked from some great undiscovered songbook in the sky. Nathan – The Active Listener

lyrics

She from the lake comes creeping

Descending down the shore

Under the willow, weeping

O’er the old path to your door



And on and up the path she comes

In a steady time but soft

Not a weed heard bending

No petal fallen off



No footprint in the soft black earth

Though there indeed she treads

Past one lone owl among the birds

Save him, all in their beds



Chorus:

As high on the eastward mountain

They watch her progress, grim

And Cristabel the phantom

Moves in the moonlight, dim



The fairy, goblin, witch or ghoul,

The animals of night

Can only ponder Christabel

In their quiet flight

And on and up the path she comes

And through the bower wades

Her swan-like back so common

In The Kingdom of The Shades



Chorus:



And now beneath the apple tree

That grows next to your door

With soundless ease it opens

Her bare foot on your floor



The one lone owl, the only one

To see her enter there

Too late you start and feel her

Icy fingers in your hair
