the Call of Sleep – II

Sleep the day away.
Sleep the day away.
Walk with us in valleys deep.
Climb to top of mountain steep.
Strengthened soul at end of sleep…
Melody of the sirens’ call;
Liars, one and all.

Calls to leave behind all cares,
Sung temptingly from village square.
No refuge for the weary there.
The promises are made;
As night begins to fade.

Sleep the day away.
Sleep the day away.
Come with us to murky depths…”
But there, I dream of my own death,
And never reach the mountain top,
But lose my way in valleys dark,
And meet with dreadful creatures there.
Fear eclipses earthly cares.

Each morning brings the sirens’ call.
Yet I’ll ignore them, one and all.
