A child is running
To the sound of the music box
That echoes throughout the corridors
A never ending song
Of sadness that only a child knows
The rain is pouring outside
In symphony with this beautiful song
While the child runs
For this child must find the music box
That plays a mournful tune
For the child
That cannot be heard by anyone but the child
Run child run
For you must find the song
That plays only for you
When you are alone
In the barren house that you reside in
Hurry child hurry
The song is coming to an end
You must find the song before it's too late
Once the song ends
You can never return
To who you are
Find the lullaby child
That plays only for you
The song has ended child
Did you find it?
Never forget the lullaby that plays only
For you
Ghost child
