    This one's dedicated to my nightmares. I wrote it early one morning when a particularyl gruesome one woke me up.

    Pain Song
    Rock me to sleep with sounds of violence
    Lullaby me with cries of pain
    Human suffering ends in silence
    Do it over and over again

    Tear the flesh and spill the blood
    Carve and cut with sharpened steel
    Add my memory to the flood
    Give me sleep that will not heal

    Rock me to sleep with sounds of torture
    Lullaby me with cries of pain
    Killing love and gentle murder
    Do it over and over again

    In my dreams, it’s all I feel
    Death and pain and killing fright
    Lethal visions, deadly dreams
    Lovingly shattered in the night

    Rock me to sleep with sounds of torment
    Lullaby me with cries of pain
    I long to rest in slumber dormant
    But it starts all over again
