YouTuber and singer CG5 has released a brand new theme song for Poppy Playtime: Chapter 3 called “Sleep Well” in collaboration with Mob Entertainment, and the song lyrics and video will have you sobbing. 

Poppy Playtime has an immersive lore centered around betrayal, brutality, and bloodshed. While players had been skeptical about the anti-villain status of the toys so far, the music video for Sleep Well will confirm many suspicions. Maybe toys are just orphaned kids trying to escape.

The lyrics for Sleep Well also highlight the cultish themes noticed throughout Poppy Playtime: Chapter 3, suggesting that the lore runs deeper.

What Sleep Well CG5 lyrics mean

Smiling Critters

The video and Sleep Well CG5 lyrics all focus on a freedom movement, but it has undertones of treachery, meaning CatNap betrayed the toys. The song also points at Prototype being “a fraud of a God,” once again bringing back the religious themes from the game’s very first trailer.

The video begins with Huggy Wuggy and Kissy Missy enjoying the artificial sunlight in beautiful scenery. Eventually, we see toys in their innocent form. A quick shot of an adorable Hoppy Hopscotch plush reaching out for CatNap’s clawed hands symbolizes the difference between the two creatures. As the toys join hands with CatNap for the sake of freedom, things start to go haywire. 

After providing support to the Smiling Critters, Huggy Wuggy, Boxy Boo, and all the other toys, CatNap gets a visit from Prototype. The video doesn’t clarify what happens next, but we see a lot of dead toys and Smiling Critters turning into evil creatures. 

The video cuts to Huggy Wuggy going back inside Playcare, confirming that the toys never escaped. This could either be due to CatNap’s betrayal or a reason that we might discover in Poppy Playtime: Chapter 4. 

Whatever the case, the video will have you sobbing all in the feels.
