A lonely headstone above a grave,
It has no form or exact date,
But I tried to get up,
As if in a bad dream... I saw there my name.

Dark silhouettes gathered in a circle.
Long, thin hands, empty eyes.
They started to sing a nightmare lullaby

And dance by the grave, laugh in my face, ha-ha-ha.
I couldn't move, I couldn't scream!
I could only hear voices,
Whispering in my ears.

A lonely headstone,
It has no form or exact date,
But there is my name.
I struggle to keep awake, listening to a nightmare lullaby.

This phantom madness haunts only in darkness.

If shadowy shapes are trying to get closer,
Don't let them fool you,
'Cause they pretend to be malicious by looking like true monsters
Only to scare you, boo!

I swallowed at the bait with great joy.
Now their hands are reaching out for my throat.
The bony fingers squeezed it at once,
It feels like I breathe under water like a fish.

A freshly dug grave,
It has no form or exact place,
But it's warm like a bed.
I am falling asleep, listening to a nightmare lullaby.

Rock-a-bye, deadman, rock-a-bye.
Dry your eyes, there is no need to cry.
Do not fear, you cannot hide.
Just relax and enjoy the ride.

High up in the sky
When the wind blows, the stars shine
And the moon sings in the night
Rock-a-bye, deadman, rock-a-bye,

Down will come your body, coffin and all.
No one will save the last sparks of a fading hope.

But how could I know
There is no bottom when you fall?

Now I am lying six feet under the stars,
Watching dark shadows dancing by my own grave.

No pillows and blankets in the lonely bed,
Only the wet in the cold grave,
But it can't be the end.
I fell asleep, listening to a nightmare lullaby.
