Video of myself as “Mother” softly singing lullaby (Epilepsy warning: contains disorienting special effects) If it doesn’t load, please look for the video here.

Hush little baby

don’t you cry.

Momma’s gonna buy you

an alibi.

And if anyone

should question you,

Momma’s gonna give them

a talking to.

We’ll prove you weren’t

even in that place.

Momma’s gonna help you

to save face.

And if they come

to take you away,

Momma’s gonna lead them

far astray.

The blood on your hands

don’t run that deep.

Momma’s gonna keep watch

while you sleep…
