We work in secret
Waiting till the time is right and no one's around
I swear we mean well, all you do is sign the line before we begin
You have my word he won't feel a thing

I know you love him
But don't get too attached it's wrong you gave him a name
The time is nearing
Second thoughts are natural but soon you'll give in, go home tonight and sleep on it

But how do you sleep at night, do you toss and turn and pray for morning
What if it never came
And how do you sleep at night, do you toss and turn and pray for morning
What if it never came

You said you'll kill him
I should have known you'd lack the spine, so thank God for mine
Just close your eyes and don't wake

But how do you sleep at night, do you toss and turn and pray for morning
What if it never came
And how do you sleep at night, do you toss and turn and pray for morning
What if it never came

Waiting for the tide to rise and wash them away
Deep into a watery grave

But how do you sleep at night, do you toss and turn and pray for morning
What if it never came
And how do you sleep at night, do you toss and turn and pray for morning
What if it never came

And how do you sleep at night, do you toss and turn and pray for morning
What if it never came

    General CommentThis song... It's about abortion... I never knew until I read the lyrics, and now it's so blatantly obvious...

    General CommentYeah, Nural themselves said it was about abortions...

    Even so, it's a beautiful song. The whimsical way the lyrics:

    "Waiting for the tide to rise and wash them away
    Deep into a watery grave"

    Are performed is amazing.
