Between Night and Dawn


Now I lay me down to sleep,
cold steel 'gainst my wrist I keep.
If I die before I wake,
I'll walk to hell and celebrate.

Night- I lay me down.
Night-- my eyes are closed.
Night-- I'm resting peaceful.
Night-- Oh Lord, A ghost.
Night-- Oh God, it beats me.
Night-- Beloved, save me.
Night-- Oh make it stop.
Dawn-- I see my blood.
Dawn-- my brain wakes up.
Dawn-- my heart rate slows.
Dawn-- my breathing gentle
Dawn-- I am okay.
