"Death Whispered a Lullaby" as written by Mikael Lars Akerfeldt and Steven John Wilson....
Out on the road there are fireflies circling
Deep in the woods, where the lost souls hide
Over the hill there are men returning
Trying to find some peace of mind

Sleep my child

Under the fog there are shadows moving
Don't be afraid, hold my hand
Into the dark, there are eyelids closing
Buried alive in the shifting sands

Sleep my child

Speak to me now and the world will crumble
Open a door and the moon will fall
All of your life, all your memories
Go to your dreams, forget it all

Sleep my child

    General CommentIt's pretty straightforward - it's about Death (ie the reaper) coming for somebody on their death bed, but taking them in the gentlest way possible. Basically soothing them into death, telling them that it is a soft and sorrowful but necessary transition.
