An essay titled Stultitiae Laus (In Praise of Folly; Elogio della follia) by Erasmus of Rotterdam was first printed in June 1511. More than 500 years later, composer Slow Wave Sleep writes his eponymous song, which we can now hear in two arrangements by chiptune producers Megus and Tiasu.

Not directly referring to Erasmus' essay, the lyrics give us an insight into the mind of a boy―driven, mad, and holding on to a feeling that is ‘beyond love’, because it is his only means of transforming an inhospitable reality.
