"Endors Toi" as written by and Kevin Parker....
Soothing repeat
I look down at my feet
It's a hypnotist's arm
And it works like a charm
But I won't be deprived
Real world, surreal life
Do or die
There is time
Go to sleep
You'll be fine

In the morning you'll find
Real life was such a grind
Off I go, day is done
Where a new one's just begun

    General CommentSuch a great song. Tame Impala is officially my favorite band at the moment.
    These french words translate to something like "fall asleep".

    My Interpretationit's really a perfect song to be on lonerism. totally encapsulates escaping from the world you share with others into the only world that is completely your own.
    i think it's also an ode to how magical and healing sleep is, and its ability to relieve your mind from whatever crap is happening in "real life".
    Endors-toi -- Keving telling someone (I assume he's telling himself) to fall asleep so he/she can escape too.

    The first part of the song describes how the surroundings in your dream feel completely real, but the life you lead is surreal. i'm not sure if "do or die" refers to how you can take risks or die in dream, but not suffer any consequence irl, or if it's about telling himself that he can get out of the do or die of life and find time in his sleep world to make things feel better:
    "Real worlds, surreal life
    Do or die
    There is time
    Go to sleep
    You'll be fine"

    Waking up you're back in this exhausting world:
    "In the morning you'll find
    Real life was such a grind"

    everything is going to be ok, because once the day is done you can escape by falling asleep and drifting into new worlds inside your head:
    "Off I go, day is done
    Where a new one's just begun"

    General CommentThis song has been my favourite ever since it first came out, so four years now. To me, it's just about letting go of the stress of 'real life', calming yourself down and just feeling totally peaceful and freed. It's reassuring; "go to sleep you'll be fine!" and "off I go, day is done ... where a new one's just begun" basically just say yeah life is a grind sometimes, but relax your mind ... free yourself, in whatever way that may be for you. A bad day ends, but a fresh day is coming. I also interpret that line kind of as somewhere in the world, whilst your day is ending, a new one is just beginning. There's such an optimism to this song.
