Quotes: Ironic Nursery Tune

"If I die before you wake
Don't you cry, don't you ache
Nothing's ever yours to keep
Close your eyes, go to sleep"
Lullaby, Tom Waits - Blood Money.

"Twinkle twinkle little... star...
How I wonder what... you... are...
Up above the world so... high...
Like a diamond in the... sky...
When the blazing sun is... gone...
When the nothing shines upon...
Then you show your little light
Twinkle twinkle all the... night
Then the trav'ler in the dark
Thanks you for your little spark
He could not see which way to... go...
If you did not... twinkle... so...
When the blazing sun is... gone...
When the nothing shines upon...
Though I know not what you... are...
Twinkle, twinkle little... star..."
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, full version, Dead Space. The cadence has been reproduced as faithfully as it can get without sound.

"My mother has killed me...
my father is eating me...
my brothers and sisters, sit under the table,
picking up my bones!
They'll bury them,
under the cold marble stones..."

“If you would seek the true terror in the night, throw away your library of thrillers and gothic romances and turn back to your childhood. There is no darkness quite so potent as that behind the apparently innocent nursery rhyme.”

Zagreus sits inside your head
Zagreus lives among the dead
Zagreus sees you in your bed
And eats you when you're sleeping

Zagreus at the end of days
Zagreus sets the skies ablaze
Zagreus comes when time's a maze
And all of history's weeping

Zagreus taking time apart.
Zagreus fears the hero heart.
Zagreus seeks the final part.
The reward that he is reaping.

Zagreus sings when all is lost
Zagreus takes all those he's crossed
Zagreus wins and all is cost
The hero's hearts he's keeping.

Zagreus seeks the hero's ship
Zagreus needs the web to rip
Zagreus sups time at a drip
And life aside, he's sweeping.
Gallifreyan nursery rhyme, Doctor Who BFA Zagreus

Born in lust
Turn to dust
Born in sin
Come on in
Born in vice
Say it twice
At least twice
Andre Linoge, he also likes 'I'm A Little Teapot'.

Mary had a little lamb,
Little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
The naughty little woodpecker
Knocked holes, crumbling the forest.
The angry wood god turned his beak into poison!

The poor little woodpecker
His nest was poison
And his supper too.
He touched his friends and they all died.

The sad little woodpecker
His little poison tears twinkle and shine.
The Lullaby, Deadman Wonderland

Tick tock goes the clock
And what now shall we play?
Tick tock goes the clock
Now summer’s gone away?

Tick tock goes the clock
And what then shall we see?
Tick tock until the day
That thou shalt marry me

Tick tock goes the clock
And all the years they fly
Tick tock and all too soon
You and I must die

Tick tock goes the clock
We laughed at fate and mourned her
Tick tock goes the clock
Even for the Doctor

Tick tock goes the clock
And all the years they fly
Tick tock goes the clock
Your love will surely die

Tick tock goes the clock
He cradled her and he rocked her
Tick tock goes the clock
Til River kills the Doctor

Tick tock goes the clock
He gave all he could give her
Tick tock goes the clock
Now prison waits for River
—The compiled Tick Tock Goes the Clock, Doctor Who: Series 6

One, two; Freddy's coming for you
Three, four; better lock your door
Five, six; grab your crucifix
Seven, eight; gonna stay up late
Nine, ten; never sleep again
