Unlike so many things, the song does not come to a stop, but to an end. And all you are going to want to do is get back there.

In short, it’s an extreme continuation of what Kirby did on Empty Bliss, his most popular release to date: lingering on the precipice where pleasant reverie slips into the abyss.
