Good night
Sleep tight
Forget the night
A lullaby of death be sung
To the sounds of forgotten church bells rung
Slumber sweet
Engulfed by dream
Let out your breath
In silent scream
Fall swift to silence
Fear not return
All doubts and defiance
In abyss be burned
Arise not for day
Be sheathed in night
Eternal slumber
Disillusioned flight
Sleep sweet for now
And return soft time
No reason to wake
No cause or rhyme
Just slumber eternity
Away once again
Return to the past
And where you’ve ne’er been
Eternal slumber
Come define our soul
Wake us from reality
For then we’ll surely know
This sweet eternal slumber
