lyrics

In the dead of the evenin'
When this little town's sleepin'
& all of its dreams are tucked neatly in
Ten bells chime
The winter wind howls and whines
The fading fire coughs and cries
& as each ember dies
So does a part of my heart
Deep inside

Strange lullaby

Why you had to leave me
The mystery the grieves me
Not even Holmes could solve a thing
Eleven bells chime
The Devil's ridin' high
On a stallion
Dark as night
Through spirals of twisted pine
Both Spirit and stallion unbridled

Strange lullaby

Oh ancient Night
Ancient Winter, Death, & Fright
You lay waste whatever's in your sight
Twelve bells chime
Send tremors through my mind
Oh cruel & gentle Time
You torture me with memory
You erase the memory
line
by line

Strange lullaby
