    Lyrics

    It must be nice to disappear
    To have a vanishing act
    To always be looking forward
    And never looking back

    How nice it is to disappear
    Float into a mist
    With a young lady on your arm
    Looking for a kiss

    It might be nice to disappear
    To have a vanishing act
    To always be looking forward
    Never look over your back

    It must be nice to disappear
    Float into a mist
    With a young lady on your arm
    Looking for a kiss
    I want to Know (Pit and Pendulum)
    Young Poe

    Young Poe:

    Under the intense scrutiny of Ligeia's eyes I have
    felt the full knowledge and force of their expression
    and yet been unable to possess it and have felt it
    leave me as so many other things have left,
    the letter half read the bottle half drunk finding
    in the commonest objects of the universe a circle of
    analogies, of metaphors for that expression which has
    been willfully withheld from me, the access to the inner soul denied.

    Judges (Choir): I want to know

    Young Poe:

    In consideration of the faculties and impulses of the
    human soul in consideration of our arrogance our radical,
    primitive irreducible arrogance of reason we have all
    overlooked the propensity.
    We saw no need for it, the paradoxical something which
    we may call perverseness. Through its promptings we
    act without comprehensible object.

    We act for the reason we should not.
    For certain minds this is absolutely irresistible.
    The conviction of the wrong or impolicy of an action
    is often the unconquerable force.
    It is a primitive impulse.
    The overwhelming tendency to do wrong for the wrong's
    sake. We persist in acts because we feel that we should
    not persist in them.

    Judges and the dead people (Choir): I want to know
