Shattered Glass

Hush

OKAY, SO I AM NOT SANE.

Never claimed to be.

And my songs have gotten seriously creepy lately.



Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
it will all be over before you know.
Hush, little child, no need to talk,
you will soon drift over to Wonderland.
Hush, little one, it is alright,
daddy will make sure you never wake up.

Pay no attention to this little blade,
ignore the bloodstains on my hand.
I am here to give you the greatest gift,
peace, serenity, and eternal rest.

    A man with no face, behind a veil,
    a man with ambitions and never a name.
    Shadows my home and fear by my side,
    don’t talk, hush now, your face is mine.

Hush, little baby, calm yourself down,
I will not hurt you until you sleep.
Hush, little child, no need to cry,
there will be plenty of dreams to see.
Hush, little one, all will be fine,
daddy will make sure you never return.

All this I do for one deepest wish,
for all this I hide before the world.
A looking glass won’t help them find me again,
for my face is not my own, and my name stolen.

    A man with no face, behind a veil,
    a man with ambitions and never a name.
    Shadows my home and fear by my side,
    don’t talk, hush now, your face is mine.

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
it will all be over before you know.
Hush, little one, it is alright,
mommy still loves you and so do I.
