Broken Lullaby

Hush my baby,
Please don't cry,
Mommy will sing you,
A broken lullaby:

Hush my angel,
With broken wings,
Close your eyes,
And go to sleep,

Stuck on the ground,
Unable to fly,
Let Mommy sing you,
Her broken lullaby,

I know you're scared,
But don't you fear,
Mommy will stay,
With you my dear,

Your broken heart,
Your broken wings,
Your broken halo
And shattered dreams,

Forget them now,
And close your eyes,
Don't listen to,
Their awful lies,

You lie there broken,
By pain and fear,
Filled with misery,
Close your eyes my dear,

Mommy will end your pain,
So baby don't cry,
Just listen to this lullaby
Before I plunge the knife.
