Music Whenever; New Villager "LightHouse"

Robyn comes through again with another music video smorgasboard. It leads in with a church like organ and, segues into some neat orchestration, catchy lyrics, bizarre costumes, and trick photography. Earwigoagin presents another ineffable music video very much in the Robyn tradition.

Keep it up, don't stop, don't lose your place
Keep it up, don't stop, don't lose your place
Keep it up, don't stop, don't lose your place
Keep it up, don't stop, don't lose your place
How're you going to get your hands inside the real thing
When you go and leave your mind sleeping
Go find a silver dog's head, put it on your own head
See the people call you, sad and lonely statue
Go out go free, run to the lighthouse
Go out go free run to the lighthouse
See what you've never seen
See what you never
Time to light the fire
Build ideas inside our homes
From upon the rooftops
We see the people stirring
Time to understand your place in trees and buildings
Where the time to dream is almost over, over
Go out go free, run to the lighthouse (lighthouse)
Go out go free, run to the lighthouse
See what you've never seen
See what you never (never)
Know how to break out the dark house
You don't have to stay around the old town
That makes you think of the babysitters
You got no time left to play it slow
No home just baby go take two steps on the right road
No time to hold hands with old plans
You now have to be the one who knows how to build a home with a baby in it
Let all things drop and keep em every minute
No home just baby go take three steps on the right road
See the people call you
Sad and lonely statue
Go out go free ,run to the lighthouse
Go out go free, run to the lighthouse, see what you never
Go out go free, run to the lighthouse
Go out go free, run to the lighthouse
See what you've never seen
Keep it up, don't stop, don't lose your place

that was a pretty weird song, and some crazy stuff in the video to boot!
