A Song for Sleeping Children
Close your eyes until you’re floating deep
In a troubled land with fossils of barren sheep
In a world completely undone.
There’s no going back
No going back
To what we used to know.
A lullaby is a song meant for children, and in most circumstances sung right before they fall asleep. Me being young and pessimistic about the future, I decided to write something a bit darker. In this song [I don’t actually believe this], I claim that children shouldn’t dream about anything nice because there’s nothing good in their life to look forward to. Older generations have messed up this world so much that by the time they’re supposedly flourishing adults, the world’s gone to trash. Nice, isn’t it?
I was born in 2002, the year that the majestic “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera was released. Thought it was a nice contrast. I hid the melody of the chorus in a random yet it-makes-sense spot.
I hope you enjoy this dystopian experience.

I know the mixing's not great, but any notes on that would be great. I'm always trying to improve on that.
