LyricsEdit

Don't fret precious I'm here.
Step away from the window.
Go back to sleep.

Lay your head down child.
I won't let the boogeyman come.

Count the bodies like sheep
to the rhythm of the war drums.

Pay no mind to the rabble.
Pay no mind to the rabble.

Head down, go to sleep
to the rhythm of the war drums.

Pay no mind what other voices say.
They don't care about you, like I do.
Safe from pain and truth and choice and
other poison devils.
See, they don't give a fuck about you like
I do.

Just stay with me.
Safe and ignorant.
Go back to sleep.
Go back to sleep.

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
to the rhythm of the war drums.

Pay no mind to the rabble.
Pay no mind to the rabble.

Head down, go to sleep to the rhythm of
the war drums.

I'll be the one to protect you from
your enemies and all your demons.

I'll be the one to protect you from
a will to survive and a voice of reason.

I'll be the one to protect you from
your enemies and your choices, son.
They're one in the same.
I must isolate you.
Isolate and save you from yourself.

Swayin to the rhythm of the new world
order and
counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm
of the war drums.

The boogeymen are coming.
The boogeymen are coming.

Keep your head down go to sleep to the
rhythm of a war drums.

Stay with me.
Safe and ignorant.
Just stay with me.
Hold you and protect you from the other
ones.
The evil ones
don't love you, son.
Go back to sleep
