#CoffinHop – An Irish Lullaby

Irish coast

 

An Irish Lullaby

 

Hush now, close your eyes

against the looming night

and the tempting moonlight.

Hush now, close your eyes.

 

Against the looming night

when the Fae Folk roam,

between morn and gloam.

Against the looming night

 

When the Fae Folk roam,

hear the banshee who wails.

I will sing you some tales,

when the Fae Folk roam.

 

Hear the banshee who wails.

Hush now, close your eyes,

dream of clear blue skies.

Hear the banshee who wails.

 

Hush now, close your eyes

against the looming night

and the tempting moonlight.

Hush now, close your eyes.

Cimmerian

In the stygian waters you descend
drowning, dying with every surge
far underneath, fighting to emerge
In the stygian waters you descend

Drowning, dying with every surge
of breath, lost to expanding tide
your nebulous, inky fate implied
drowning, dying with every surge

Of breath, lost to expanding tide
trapped with your voiceless screams
riding the swell of broken streams
of breath, lost to expanding tide

Trapped with your voiceless screams
Into the stygian waters you descend
Shut your eyes, persisting to pretend
Trapped with your voiceless screams

Into the stygian waters you descend
drowning, dying with every surge
far underneath, fighting to emerge
Into the stygian waters you descend
