It’s about surviving suicide attempts, but you can get what you want out of it.

An ode to you, oh quiet child,

Lying so still, broken and defiled,

As blood seeps from your veins,

Traces the tiles,

Tears descend your face,

And to the floor they are exiled.

 

Hush my sweetheart, don’t you cry,

Grim Reaper’s gonna sing you a lullaby.

And if you don’t suddenly die,

Then Grim Reaper’s gonna give it another try.

 

You are the moon,
Reflecting all that comes your way,

You are a rock,

Taking hit after hit, day after day,

You are the sun,
Blocked by gloomy storm clouds,
You are the rain,

Free falling into darkness.

 

Oh,

Hush my sweetheart, don’t you cry,

Grim Reaper’s gonna sing you a lullaby.

And if you don’t suddenly die,

Then Grim Reaper’s gonna give it another try.

 

Oh no, don’t cry darling,
I’ll sing it again.
Hush my sweetheart, don’t you cry,
Grim Reaper’s gonna sing you a lullaby,
And if you don’t suddenly die,

Then Grim Reaper’s gonna give it another try.
