I just came across this fantastic version of Cassilda’s Song by The Society of the Yellow Sign.

From Act I Scene 2 of The King in Yellow.

Along the shore the cloud waves break,

The twin suns sink behind the lake,

The shadows lengthen

In Carcosa.
Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is

Lost Carcosa.
Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in

Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,

Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed

Shall dry and die in

Lost Carcosa.
