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)

But not the rest? :(

It's good but really creepy... like so creepy it could be used in a horror game or movie, i bet my pet rock on it

Miyolophone responds:

I wonder how crazy your pet rock would be about gambling you gambling its life away

This was really interesting, and, if nothing else, fun to listen to. Confusion carried It's way throughout the song, but I enjoyed it nonetheless, and many parts I feel were well done. Awesome job, I liked it. :)

Miyolophone responds:

Thank you so much! I’m glad it was fun to go on this journey— I had a lot of fun creating it!

I very much agree with Ax1le, the last part is hecking amazing!
(Well same with the whole thing, but the last part was my favorite)

Miyolophone responds:

Thank you! You're hecking amazing

Wow really nice!
Love how you put different styles of music into one song... Really nice! :D
The last part is my favorite though, wish it was longer but that wouldn't happen.
