Lyrics: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Jah my soul to keep, His Love to guard me through the night, And wake me in the morning's light. Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Jah my soul to keep. May the angels watch me through the night, and keep me in their blessed sight. If I should live another day I pray the Lord to guide my way. Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Jah my soul to keep, thy angels watch me through the night, And keep me safe till morning's light.

 This song is special for many reasons. First of all it's the first prayer in English I've ever heard played by Mettallica, Enter Sandman, where it says that text - Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the lord My soul to keep, for if I die before I wake I pray the lord my soul to take(VIEW METALLICA - ENTER SANDMANhttps://youtu.be/yQlJvG42MaA)

But it's like I as I'm mostly making prayers so I wanted to make something my kids can listen to, repeat and kind of have a better experience of a first prayer in song heard on whatever. radio or tv so with all my love to Metallica and huge respect (I have all CD collection and I have been to show in Tallinn first row pressed and squeezed and stoned) but I just had to make smoother reggae and dubbier which maybe is already not so much for kids anymore, however it is as it is - pothead reggae music.

Secondly it represents at those days huge growing and new industry - Bitcoin Mining in which I had a chance to participate at some level so gaining undauntedly massive technical and IT experience as well as had to remember the basic physics..:) 

Thirdly and most importantly why the song itself was made is a prayer itself - to remind us everyday that this might be our last day here on earth due to many even so called "technical" reasons like artificial intelligence which is based on blockchain and robots gaining as a joke citizenship in Dubai but in full seriousness attending UN meetings saying publicly that nuclear warheads might be interesting toy to play with at some point always reminds at least to me that it would be good that we wake up tomorrow and if we do - let's be grateful for that to God.
