Say your prayers little one
Don't forget my son
To include everyone
I tuck you in
Warm within
Keep you free from sin
'Til the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of snow white
Dreams of war
Dreams of lies
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite, yeah

Sleep with one eye open
Grippin' your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

(Whisper)
Now I lay me down to sleep (x2)
Pray the lord my soul to keep (x2)
And if I die before I wake (x2)
Pray the lord my soul to take (x2)

Hush little baby don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beast under your bed
In your closet in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

We're off to never never-land

Take my hand
We're off to never never-land
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

We're off to never never-land

    TO ME IT MEANS WHEN PEOPLE EXIT THE LIGHT IS THAT WHEN WE TURN A WAY FROM THAT SIMPLE RULE OF TREATING OTHERS AS WE WANT TO BE TREATED AND START TO USE OTHER PEOPLE TO OUR SELFISH GAIN. THEN WE ENTER IN THE NIGHT WHERE WE MAKE ENEMIES WHERE EVER WE GO AND THEN LIFE BECOMES VERY DIFFICULT AND FEAR STARTS TO RULE OUR LIFES INSTEAD OF HAVING BIT OF FUN WITH OUR FRIENDS AND PEOPLE WE COME IN CONTACT IN DAILY BASES. HAVE NICE DAY MARKKU!!!
