Some time in 1997 this song was tracked to analogue tape live off the floor in London, Ont. @Emac Studios by Cory Thompson - drums, Jeff Fountain - bass & Boris Novosel - guitars. It was arranged last minute, the morning of the recording by singer Gord Prior. The basic parts (chorus/verse) had already been written by Boris & Gord in the weeks before but with no beginning, middle & end. This was the first time this group had met and they recorded this within hours. The pounding rhythm section of Stan & Cory is evident and makes this track have huge balls & dynamics. Boris's guitar is haunting and subtle with tones being pushed to the limit while Gord channels inner demons and ad-libs his way through a vigorous and exhausting vocal exorcism. During the writing and recording process of this song, there was a sense between Boris & Gord that they were pushing themselves musically, emotionally, and arrangement-wise (excitingly exploring new ground.) Producer Dan Brodbeck shared the same vision and took them beyond, well ahead of it's time production-wise in many ways. The end result is the song is MOM.

Lyrics, Gord Prior:

Watcha got for me today?
What's inside your little head?
Just a taste of whats to come.
My skinny little friend...
I'm waiting here for you.
Are you waiting there for me?
I'd really like to go and talk about...

Hello sunshine, I've been waiting.
It's been so long, how's your day been?
Kiss your worries goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye...

Oh Mommy what you said to me!
What you did to me!
