About Caleb

she's a blue water-stain in all those family portraits
she's the daughter of methadone and the mother of eight
and they say there's too much to it, you can't simply blame her
that she's not the reason such events have occurred
but in the meanwhile, this mother has lost her child
and once again, this boy has lost his friend

and i say lay, lay me, lay me down
and i will lay you, lay you, lay you down too
and i'll sing to you, i'll sing to you
like my father used to
like my father used to do

and it seems you're too lonely to tell
that there's a life beyond this well
and it seems you're too young to realise
the way i feel about the woman who brought you to life
and yes, it's grim
no mother wishes to lose kin
but you've found a substitute
in your substance

but go, keep on smiling
and i will go and keep on crying
crying for you
crying for you
like our mothers used to
like our mothers used to
