In the Pensieve is the name of the seventh single by wizard rock band The 8th Horcrux. The song is a parody of "Fireflies" by Owl City, and recounts the trouble Harry had learning Occlumency. The song received heavy airplay on the wizard rock radio station WrockBox.

Music VideoEdit

A little more than a half a year after the release of Accio Awesome, The 8th Horcrux filmed a music video for the song. The video, which later got over a thousand hits in a month (and as of June 2013, almost 10,000 hits), became very popular and was featured in Ottawa's newspaper during the week leading up to the final film.[1]

LyricsEdit

I tell you it's not a lie
The dark lord that I despise
Destroyed my world when I was asleep
And he doesn't even care
Leaving Dark Marks everywhere
Sheesh, that's rude, but we all stand and stare...

Take a look in a Pensieve
You'll see my thoughts sink slowly
It's true to state that I'd rather stay awake than fall asleep
'Cause Voldie's there just watching all my dreams

Butterbeer in a jug
Rita Skeeter was a bug
The Yule Ball was such a wicked dance
A sharp pain upon my head
The mirror of Erised
I can't believe that Sirius Black is dead...

Take a look in a Pensieve
You'll see my thoughts sink slowly
It's true to state that I'd rather stay awake than fall asleep
'Cause Voldie's there just watching all my dreams (When I fall asleep)

I had to beg the Sorting Hat (Please not there in Slytherin)
Mrs. Norris is such an awful cat (Please don't tell Filch I'm here)
Where are the keys that Hagrid keeps (Please make me some treacle fudge)
A harp made Fluffly fall asleep...

I know I must not tell lies
I'm weird and I hate bad guys
I got bright green eyes just like my mom
Who knows where my parents are
But if my dreams get real bizarre
I'm the Boy Who Lived: just look at my scar (scar scar)

Take a look in a Pensieve
You'll see my thoughts sink slowly
It's true to state that I'd rather stay awake than fall asleep
'Cause Voldie's there just watching all my dreams

Take a look in a Pensieve
You'll see my thoughts sink slowly
It's true to state that I'd rather stay awake than fall asleep
'Cause Voldie's there just watching as I dream
