Go to sleep

Hush! baby go to sleep
in the land of fairies and dreams
while I rock you and sing the mystics of old
as the sun sets and winds grow cold

Sleep, as the dead come home
naked bodies, seared skin and slit throats
Oh! don’t open your eyes as you may see the sight
of the tortured corpse of Mr. Fulbright

Oh! sleep now my child as father has arrived
in his wooden box marched along with men with stripes
as her widow rips herself apart in pain
and her sister sobs in corner with her share of pain

Oh! don’t you wake up dear to see this world
filled with sufferings, tears and pain
stay in your Eden as long as you can
as there are no roses, just thorns in the cradle of life
