So I’ll sing you to sleep with a nightsong,

And hope you’re along for the ride,

As I teach you to dance on the moonbeams,

That watch over and night-kiss the tides.

I’ll tell you a truth yet unspoken,

I’ll make you believe in your soul,

But remember I can’t come and rescue,

Or pull your mind out of the hole.

So beware all my gifts and my whispers,

That I tell you will change how you feel,

For my lies are but tasty sweet nothings,

That repulse just as much as appeal.
