Sleep little child, sleep like I told you when the clouds hung low, and the rain was throbbing like a wound in your body, tight against my beating heart is a liar, empty prayer
Sleep little child, know that I love you and you're here little child, so hear me lie
I will protect you, your dreams are candy, happy sweet, taste you when you bleed

Fight little soldier, hold the metal gun in your shaking hand against my heart, don't break when you see him, crying and pleading for life, it's yours or his, this is
War little soldier, just like I taught you, kill little soldier, set your lover free into heaven, sky as read as hearts as they splatter, taste you when you bleed

Promise me you will come home, promise me I'm not alone
All of mankind splits apart, bleeding from its broken heart
Lie now that there is a dream, tear me apart at the seams
Singing laughing breathing tasting nothing but our blood

Promise me (promise me)
Promise me (what you can't keep)
Promise me (promise me)
Promise me (your lies are candy)

Sing little human, I think you're beautiful like rain in a foggy night, and stars will watch us, hear our music, promise me what you can't keep
Stay little human, we are not so torn like the flowers, drowned beneath the storm where we lost each others' voices, gone, into nothing

And bleed

If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die?
If you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If you prick us, do we not bleed?
