Shwarzwald

A little child lay down

And decided to die

So he closed his eyes

And went to sleep

.

Come listen little children

I have a fairytale for you

Deep in the black forest I come

To spread your tears among the monsters

.

How many are left now?

.

The sky turned black

With the sound of dark wings

Crows came

To pluck out his blue eyes

Strip away his white skin

.

Come listen little children

I have a fairytale for you

Deep in the black forest I come

To spread your tears among the monsters

.

How many are left now?

.

A split among his side

To peck away his flesh

They ate him all up

And left only the bones

.

Come listen little children (but beware)

I have a fairytale for you (full of nightmares)

Deep in the black forest I come (walking on bloody footprints)

To spread your tears among the monsters (lap them up sweetly)

.

How many are left now? (none will be left)

.

When he woke up nothing was left

But his white bones shining like snow

And he walked on crying

Stealing black crow feathers

.

Come listen little children

I have a fairytale for you

Deep in the black forest I come

To spread your tears among the monsters

.

How many are left now?

.

None will be left
