This original song imagines a message from Charity Lamb to her children. As Charity slowly loses her mind to a life of trauma and imprisonment, she tries to hold on to the memory of her children, asking for their forgiveness but also yearning for a life and relationship with them that can never be restored. In doing so, Charity's act of murder becomes the complicated and desperate pursuit of freedom for her children and herself.
