"Medicine Jar" as written by Catherine Jane/gray Garside and M Garside....
My baby talks in his sleep
I said wake him up

My baby talks in his sleep
I said.....

She's out on good behaviour
Even daddie's love won't save her
I said my prayers as I suck on the medicine jar

I'm bound in his reflection
We drink his mother's milk with conviction
My baby cried on the cross as she bled him dry

My baby talks in his sleep, god damn,
I said wake him up
I said wake him up

Drink ocean deep there's plenty
Oh baby go to sleep it's empty
I said my prayers in the medicine jar

He's suddenly calm
He's sudd....

I dry my tears
I hide my fears
I drown in arrears
In the medicine jar

The medicine jar
Yeah
The medicine jar
The medicine jar

(My baby's cyring
My baby's crying)

    General CommentYes I think this is about drugs....

    Maybe it's like how some mothers want to stop their babies from crying, they try everything, the the mother in this song gave the baby something she shouldn't have...

    "He's suddenly calm
    He's sudd...."

    Perhaps with those lyrics it means he's quiet....or even dead....

    I don't know, I haven't heard this song yet, I was just reading the lyrics.

    All I could think of haha >.

    General CommentI agree with the drug thing 4405.

    I think again it's about the mother that was on drugs during her pregnancy and now the baby is born with the addiction and her "milk" literally or perhaps her feeding the baby drugs.

    And as things progress worse with the baby, she relies more and more on the "medicine jar" to get away. And she "Drowns...in a medicine jar"
