Abigail’s Lullaby is a song by virtual American melodic metal band Dethklok. It was released as a scene in The Doomstar Requiem, and later on its eponymous soundtrack—the band’s fourth full-length album. It was written by Brendon Small and sung by Raya Yarbrough.

Lullaby

Abigail singing to Toki

Trapped in a dungeon, Abigail comforts Toki, who is suffering greatly. She reminds him that no matter what Magnus does to him, he cannot take away Toki’s memories of Dethklok. She encourages him to focus on those memories in order to stay alive.

The lyrics are ironically morbid in juxtaposition to the soothing music. The scene is speculated to be a parody of Mary Magdalene comforting Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar, which Brendon has mentioned as an inspiration to him. Abigail’s interaction with the little creatures sharing their dungeon is also Disney-esque.

Lyrics[]

  • [Abigail]
  • Don’t be scared my little friend
  • I am here with you
  • Things have gotten so bad
  • But I am here with you
  • We’ll most likely die
  • They’ll pull off our skin
  • They’ll pluck out our eyes
  • They’ll play in our blood
  • Be cannibalized
  • They’ll bathe us in acid
  • They’ll chew through our brains
  • They’ll chop up our guts
  • And cut up our veins!
  • But close your eyes
  • Drift away
  • Dream into your happy place
  • Remember the finest moments in your life
  • It’s your power and your strength
  • Your happy place
  • Go there now, now
  • Go, go there now
