"Lullaby" as written by and Jeffrey John/martin Burrows....
You've been looking for god, you've been down on your knees
Will the angels believe you now?
Wanting more than the bliss of a beautiful kiss
From\nt the lips of the one who fell, well it's hard to tell...

It's like an opium dream, through your psyche it streams
It relieves and believes the pain
That you fought in vain
Oh no... please don't, wave goodbye wave goodbye

Because you're sleeping tonight
Sleeping tonight
Safe in the arms of Morpheus

You've escaped through these means
These delirious dreams
Helped to shelter and soothe your soul
The regrettable roles
The salvation they sold
Satisfied your desire to burn and now you've learned?
Oh no please don't
Wave goodbye wave goodbye

    General Comment"This song was actually the first one of the batch that we wrote for the record. We were up at Scotty Carmichael's beautiful cottage in the Muskokas and we set up a studio there to start writing this record and this was pretty much the first riff that we worked on. The intention with this record was for the band to get back to the basics, whatever that means. But we had just come off 'Heaven Coming Down,' 'Messenger' and 'Walking Wounded' -- these really big orchestrated songs. I don't know how you can make a song bigger than 'Walking Wounded,' in rock music. I had to mix the damn thing - 72 tracks all over the place, man; this is not a three-piece! So the intention was with this record, to get together in a room, face each other, strip it down, and put all the world music instruments away for the initial part of the writing session. The musicianship in this band is quite high, so let's play guitar, bass and drums. Let's play off each other. Let's play like our lives depend on it and just rock and see what happens. And 'Lullaby' was pretty much the first song completed of the whole batch. Poetically the song takes its inspiration from the central figure of the song: Morpheus. You're sleeping tonight but you're safe in the arms of Morpheus. He is the God of opiates, the God of psychic sleep, of numbing yourself to life's experiences and drowning them with opiates. This song is hopefully positively charged. It's awakening an individual's response time to being in the now without having to numb yourself." - Jeff Martin
