"New Moon" as written by Juha Tapini Raivio, Mikko Johannes Kotamaeki, Aleksi Jaakko Samuli Munter, Veli Matti Honkonen, Markus Jarno Kristian Jaemsen and Kai Juhani Hahto....
"Tomorrow will be worse"

I heard her say as she closed the curtains
And walked away

Tied on the bed by hands of the past
Memories too painful to be opened
My body crushed and burned from escaping life
The sleep will come, with horrors of you...

New moon, would you open the gates
and take me away from this night
New moon, between the curtains
Walk me away on your silvery bridge
New moon, lay your mercy on me tonight

The despair of morning sun, beams of unholy light
No one can read the signs of these eyes
The prayer of escape, I will never heal

The flames on my skin to wash all bad away
Was unpurifying kiss of suffering

But I judge myself to give it all away, for you...

New moon, would you open the gates
and take me away from this night
New moon, between the curtains
Walk me away on your silvery bridge
New moon, lay your mercy on me tonight

    Song MeaningCamter hit the nail on the head. Just to elaborate on what's already been said, the lines "No one can read the signs of these eyes. The prayer of escape, I will never heal" suggest that the narrator/victim is bedridden in a sort of vegetable or comatose state. Their body is immobile, but their mind functions as normal. As they cannot express their will to die, their only hope is that the night will take away their life, and by morning the suffering and agony will have ceased.
