You wake up again.
The computers sing your Lullaby, and you ʜᴀᴘᴘɪʟʏ ꜰᴀʟʟ ᴀꜱʟᴇᴇᴘ.
You dream many very ʜᴀᴘᴘʏ dreams that get more and more ʜᴀᴘᴘʏ as time goes on.
When you wake up again, the computers don't have time to sing your Lullaby because you begin to hit them ᴇᴠᴇɴ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜ ᴛʜᴇʏ ᴀʀᴇ ᴏɴʟʏ ᴛʀʏɪɴɢ ᴛᴏ ᴘʀᴏᴛᴇᴄᴛ ʏᴏᴜ.
You are very ᴜɴʜᴀᴘᴘʏ when you escape.

This is my entry for the fifth annual Newgrounds Art-Inspired Music Contest. I was inspired by P-cate's art, "P C t r a u m a" (https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/p-cate/p-c-t-r-a-u-m-a— make sure you check it out!), but I ended up taking the base concept and running in a slightly different direction with it. Please enjoy.

Lullaby lyrics:
They say you're entitled to freedom
But trust us that's all just a lie (a lie)
'Cause when you're outside unprotected
You're vastly more likely to die (likely to die)
Nothing will hurt you or touch you
As long as you're in our embrace
Now lay down your head
Curl up in your bed
And sink into empty space
(Sweet dreams)
