The song's lyrics can only be heard when the song is played in reverse, indicating the title "Reverse Will". The lyrics are sang by Jacquelyn Breckenridge (the voice actress of Laura), while the words themselves originate from the 18th century children's bed-time prayer "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep".
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray The Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I pray The Lord my soul to take
- Between 1:57 and 2:10 of "Rain of Brass Petals - Three Voices Edit", parts of this song in reverse can be heard.
- In the Silent Hill film, in the Toluca County Orphanage, Sister Margaret prays "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep" with the children.
- In Japanese, the English words "rebirth" and "reverse" are pronounced the same and therefore written the same in katakana as リバース (ribāsu). This may be the reason why this song is played during the "Rebirth" ending, in addition to its reversed lyrics.
