“Come Away”

Come away little one to the slaughter.

Where the one you trusted is appointed to die,

Come slowly up to the surface,

And breathe in the smoke of the fire.

They are coming for you.

Come away little deer to the grass field,

Where the hunter waits for you.

He’s the one to see this through.

Kill the one, who you loved the most,

They are coming for you.

Come little baby to your cradle,

To the fire who takes away from you.

As your mother coddles you to sleep.

And the flame begins to burn.

They are coming for you.

Come little boy to the water,

Where you will drown and never rise again,

Then you have to take the blame.

For words that hurt you so.

They are coming for you.

Come away little silent girl,

Where you will never talk again.

You got in the way of the process.

Now you will take the heat from the fire.

They are coming for you.

Come away little brother,

To where your sister protects you,

Follow the light like a bug,

And we’ll let the heat get to you.

They are coming for you.

Come away tiny sheep.

To the place far from home.

Then you’ll see the wolves,

While they tear flesh and blood.

They are coming for you.

Come away little bat to the cave,

Where it will collapse and be covered in ruble,

It’ll take your wings so you’ll never be able to fly.

While the others have also died.

They are coming for you.
