// Station 1 // Lore
This lullaby speaks of home as the place where storms play. Its haunting melody exhorts the listener to take comfort in the unknown, in solitude, and even in danger.
"There is safety in darkness /
but not if you fear it"
...is the only line that repeats. Evocative images appear in the song's bridge, in particular windswept cliffs by the sea and rain-drenched tree canopies towering above, swaying from fierce hurricanes in the darkness of night, providing no shelter or warmth.
// Station 2 // Field Notes
A striking and unusual song, especially as compared to the lullabies genre near-universally. We have found that most lullaby lyrics attempt a direct approach towards assuaging the fears of a loved one, through assurances of safety and expressions of care.
In "The Wild Forest Reigns", the listener is reminded that she is alone, that her insignificance, amidst nature's awesome powers, is the thing to be celebrated. Though the words and music are not harsh, and in fact are at times quite beautiful, they also cannot be described to swaddle or coddle the intended audience.
When we interviewed performers of this lullaby – found prevalently among cultures regardless of proximity to wilderness regions – we often encountered an ardent belief that this lullaby occupied an important place within the Pleiadians' sense of self-identification. Its comportment with that fierce and even rugged independence Pleiadians are known for sits nonetheless alongside a delighted, mirthful awareness that the dangers of the world hold their own unique power to affirm joy and life.
