From Sarah: Back in the earlier part of this year we toyed with the idea of writing a collection of songs titled Lullabies, Love Songs, and Laments. This song was my way to combine all three. I wanted to write lyrics with more of a quirky and eclectic aesthetic exploring personifications of Lullabies, Love Songs and Laments. Hence we have Death, Love, and Hypnos.

Lyrics

Somnus Aeterna

When Death took a walk in the park
All the flowers on display
Little creatures on parade
Moonlight reaching through the cracks
Searching for the hidden path
When Death took a walk in the park

Somnus Aeterna
Colder than the grave
Somnus Aeterna
Whispers in the dark
Somnus Aeterna
Sleeping just to dream this life away

When Love took a stab at my heart
Poisoned arrow flying true
When it hit me, then I knew
Making smooth a tortured route
For she who comes at night
When Love took a stab at my heart

When Hypnos blew a kiss at the moon
No light, no sound
Can enter here
The Lethe flows
The poppies grow
When Hypnos blew a kiss at the moon

Somnus Aeterna
Colder than the grave
Somnus Aeterna
Whispers in the dark
Somnus Aeterna
Sleeping just to dream this life away
