Realizing that she must find a way to get out her and her siblings’ situation, Violet takes it upon herself to save Klaus. Oh, yes, Sunny helps if she can, too, though she’s a baby. That night, she reads up on Dr. Orwell’s book on Advanced Ocular Science. Sure enough it contains information on hypnotism. Yet, the book contains a lot of long hard words and she struggles to work out exactly what the chapter means. And she can’t really use a dictionary because the Lucky Smells library doesn’t have one. But she eventually establishes that there’s a word to induce hypnotism and a second word to get that person out of a hypnotized state. Though finding the answer keeps her up all night. And she feels quite lonely and wishes Sunny could talk to her since she’s not quite old enough to carry a proper conversation.

The song I chose is “One More Night” which is a deep cut from Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline album. The original song is about a guy trying to get over a woman who dumped him and how he’s trying to get over it night after night. In this version, I have Violet trying to get through the night finding the answer to unhypnotize her brother.

 

“One Long Night”

Sung by Violet Baudelaire

One more night, the stars are in sight
But tonight I’m as lonesome as can be
Oh, the moon is shinin’ bright
Lighting ev’rything in sight
But tonight no light will shine on me.

Oh, it’s shameful and it’s sad
My brother’s in a trance
He just doesn’t seem like the boy he used to be
I will turn my head up high
To that dark and rolling sky
For tonight no light will shine on me.

Finding a hypnosis cure’s a pain to read in this big book
And you can’t talk much to a baby under two

One long night, I will wait for the light
While the wind blows high above the trees
Oh, I miss my brother so
I can’t close my eyes and doze
So tonight no light will shine on me.

One long night, the moon is shinin’ bright
And the wind blows high above the trees
Oh, I miss my brother so
I can’t close my eyes and doze
So tonight no light will shine on me.
