." Vocalist Todd La Torre explained to Music Enthusiast Magazine
: "The story behind the song is a man whose wife dies during childbirth for their baby. And so, in the beginning of 'Midnight Lullaby,' you hear this baby being rocked, and then you hear this wind-up toy, which plays this very creepy, haunting lullaby, like a little child's toy. And then comes the song."
