Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Now I lay me down to sleep.
From my veins my blood will seep.
I will die before I wake.
To the grave my soul I’ll take.

Across my wrists the knife will slide.
No longer will I need to hide.
From this pain I will be free,
Away from all this misery.

Darkness fading with my life,
With the help of a kitchen knife.
Now as night turns into day,
My life will finally slip away.

To the grave my soul I’d taken.
I did die before I’d waken.
From my veins my blood did seep.
Now I’ve laid me down to sleep.
