Mordred's Lullaby

Lyrics posted by permission of the author

Hush, child, the darkness will rise from the deep
and carry you down into sleep
Child, the darkness will rise from the deep
and carry you down into sleep

Loyalty Loyalty Loyalty Loyalty
Loyalty only to me
Loyalty Loyalty Loyalty Loyalty
Loyalty only to me

Hush, child, the darkness will rise from the deep
and carry you down into sleep
Child, the darkness will rise from the deep
and carry you down into sleep

Guile Son, I'll shape your belief
and you'll always know that your father's a thief
and you won't understand the cause of your grief
but you'll always follow the voices beneath

Guile Son, your spirit will hate her
the flower who married my brother the traitor
and you will expose his puppet behaviour
for you are the proof of how we betrayed her

Guile Son, each day you grow older
each moment I'm watching my vengeance unfold
for the child of my body, the flesh of my soul
will die in returning the birthright he stole
