A midnight dreary is a song by LorD and Master from the album, Definitely. It's about a lonely, strange man living in a manor house high above a village. Nobody understands him or why he's so sad, but he stares into a fire, wishing he could make them understand him. Loosely inspired by The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, this song runs the raven's word “nevermore” through a vocoder, in an echo of the Shakespeare-through-a-vocoder fun of Cold sweat.

Lyrics

  • Once upon a midnight dreary
  • I stumbled on the soundest theory
  • I gazed into the open fire
  • And wondered why
  • I posed my thoughts as a query
  • Once upon a midnight dreary
  • I gazed into the open fire
  • For quite some time
  • Why do they fear me?
  • Why don’t they hear me?
  • I can see it all so clearly
  • On a midnight dreary
  • Sometimes my shadow moves without me
  • No one knows a thing about me
  • The flickering of the open fire
  • Dances on the wall
  • Once upon a midnight dreary
  • I found myself with no one near me
  • I gazed into the open fire
  • And cursed them all
  • Nevermore
  • Nevermore
  • Nevermore
  • Nevermore
