Artifex Pereo – The Lantern And The Firefly lyrics
I had a lantern
I turned it into a rocket for the sky
Illuminating the ground in which I play
(Illuminating the ground)
But my mother told me to put it away
Led me to my room, and made me a bed to lay
I had a firefly, tied to a string I led into the sky
Casting out silver light onto the beds in which we slumber
But my mother told me to put it away
But my mother told me to put it away
I killed the firefly, I lead him into the lantern in the
I killed the firefly, I lead him into the lantern in the sky
Oh mother what have I done?
Oh mother what have I done?
What have I done?
