"The Baker's Son" as written by and Adam Peter Weston Ian Lewis Kenny....
You tripped up again,
you tripped up again, oh no.
You know better, don't you?
Free to believe in, oh no.
Tick-tock again. Tick-tock again, oh no.

Waiting, Waiting.
Waiting, Waiting.

Tip-toe again. Tip-toe again, oh no.
Sounds like nothing you know.
Who's that again? Who's that again, oh no.
Sleep with one eye... oh no!

Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up!

Settle my boy, settle my baby boy.
No need to fight, you'll be just fine, you'll be all right.
Settle my boy, settle my baby boy.
No need to fight, you'll be just fine, you'll be all right

And nothing will bother you, son.
Now you're on your own.
And nothing will bother you, son.
Now you're gone.
(Now you're gone.)
Now you're on your own.

Settle my boy, settle my baby boy.
Settle my boy, settle my baby boy.
You should be home, with those that you love.
I know that you care, I know you can hear me.

Settle my boy, settle my baby boy.
No need to fight, you'll be just fine, you'll be all right.
No need to fight, you'll be just fine, you'll be all right.
No need to fight, you'll be just fine, you'll be all right.

    My InterpretationI want to agree with Namipo, I want to see it comforting words to peeta in his death but Peeta doesnt die in either of the first 2 installations. He comes close when he chops the forcefield with a maschette (sic) but is resuscitated(sic).
    Such a beautiful and progressive song of a boy's struggle and demise (the way I see it) would make sense.
    The line "And nothing will bother you, son. Now you're on your own." Has me thinking the boy met his demise and is passing into eternal peace.

    I've googled for sources from Ian Kenny talking about the song and have found nothing but I'd really love to paint a story when i listen to this progressive beauty

    My InterpretationI get the simple impression that the 'boy' is alone, scared and in a strange place where he fears for his life and just wishes death would come. When you think of the hunger games (haters go FY) you can picture Peeta; the scared young man in a fight for his life against other youngsters fighting for their lives, and just imagine being in his position.

    In general, being a naive boy in a strange situation fearing for his life and hoping for death, because sometimes fear is so insense and unbearable that knowing you'll be in peace in death is a comfort.
