stop your raving cos the neighbors may be listening
hush now little baby let me help relieve your suffering

she went to sleep at midnight
i left her lying on her back
as serious as cancer
as subtle as a heart attack

abnormal diagnosis
once warm and tender flesh is cold
and my tuberculosis
misadventure by remote control

stop your raving cos the neighbors may be listening
hush now little baby let me help relieve your suffering

i got an empty feeling
computer virus can't erase
blank eyes stare at the ceiling
i touch your stony clammy face

if i could move a mountain
if i could make the sky turn black
if i could turn the clock back
to when i heard your neck go snap

stop your raving cos the neighbors may be listening
hush now little baby let me help relieve your suffering

i left you lying in your grave
warned you not to misbehave
took you where you might feel a bit more comfortable
but you
held a warm place in my heart
but you've begun to fall apart
there's a warm wet place the worms will never get to you

stop your raving cos the neighbors may be listening
hush now little baby let me help relieve your suffering
stop your raving cos the neighbors may be listening
hush now little baby let me help relieve your suffering

suffering

    My InterpretationPossibly about crib death, but there is an element of shaken baby in there too [neck snapping]. Then there is only horrible remorse and the inability to deal with it, so the person continues lying with the dead and decaying baby.
