Now dear children, pay close attention
I am the voice of the cushion
I have brought something along for you
Have torn it from my breast

With this heart, I have the force
To blackmail the eyelids
I sing until the day awakes
A bright light in the heavens
My heart burns

They come to you during the night
Devil's spirits black fairies
They crawl out of the cellar shaft
And see it become your bed

Now dear children, pay close attention
I am the voice of the kiss
I have brought something along for you
A bright light in the heavens
My heart burns

They come to you during the night
And steal your little hot tears
They wait until the moon awakes
And press you in my cold veins

Now dear children, pay close attention
I am the voice of the cushion
I sing until the day awakes
A bright light in the heavens
My heart burns

My heart burns

    General CommentThis reminds me of how nightmares were once thought to have been caused by demons or other malevolent spirits (I think the original root of the word ment a little demon jumping on your chest or something). Most of the songs on "Mutter" seem to be related to fairy tales anyway.
