"The Forgotten Lake"

Come with me to the forgotten lake,
Where covered wagons and the wings of missing planes
Float between black fish underneath the velvet waves.
Strange lights fly across the rocky beach.
Girls in white nightgowns wander barefoot in their sleep,
And the vapors of dreams winding circles round their feet.
Down, down, float them down.
Let the waters float them down
To where they'll remember everything.

Golden flash at the corner of your eye,
Though shadows that climb your darkened walls at night.
They open a door lit with forgotten light.
In dark water, the grey veil falls away.
We'll see with closed eyes and drift softly in the rain.
Like dragonflies in love, we'll dance across the silver waves.
Down, down float us down.
Let the waters float us down
To where we'll remember everything.
~ The Handsome Family

Very nice. Slightly reminds me of the lyrics to Oingo Boingo's "Long Breakdown" though the tone is different.
