a pretty good reaction. Since the Captain admits not completely understanding some of his own lyrics, your assessment fits the fiendish "plan."wrote:Even though I've mentioned the "theme of the album" a couple of times already, I'm actually not even sure what the theme really is. After the very first song I was expecting the rest of the album to follow some sort of a pirate theme, but then came the wolves and demons and the strange avian creatures and much more. So currently I'm imagining "the Underworld" to be some enchanting but dark place with all sorts of strange creatures... it actually reminds me a bit of tales of Edgar Allan Poe or H.P.Lovecraft, which is exciting of course! The lyrics seem to be even more poetic (and difficult) than on Gatekeeper, so I think I need to really concentrate on the lyrics next time and read them from the booklet while listening. I also think that I need to get some of the other SW albums before I can fully understand the story behind the songs... if that's even possible!
El Roacho helped me recognize that this is perhaps two things. The full title is "Diary Of An Edwardian Beetroot (Day Three: Mousseron Steam Fair)" and it does seem to be two pieces. The final minute-and-ten-seconds stands nicely on it's own and is semi-antiqued carnival theme. That is preceded by the final aitu lyricswrote:11. Diary Of An Edwardian Beetroot
As a song this one's not particularly memorable, but I suppose that it's still a very good ending track for the album.
I just relistened to Beetroot (I'd not heard it for a long while for some reason, shame on me).Hogfysshe wrote:

The squirrels of Mousseron Wood with a saint
They'll trip up his donkey and drown it in seeds
And then they will drink all his mead
