"Mother Mother" as written by and Tracy K. Bonham....
Mother mother
Can you hear me?
I'm just calling to say hello
How's the weather?
How's my father?
Am I lonely? Heavens no
Mother mother
Are you listening?
Just a phone call to ease your mind
Life is perfect
Never better
Distance making the heart grow blind

When you sent me off to see the world
Were you scared that I might get hurt?
Would I try a little tobacco?
Would I keep on hiking up my skirt?

I'm hungry
I'm dirty
I'm losing my mind
Everything's fine

I'm freezing
I'm starving
I'm bleeding to death
Everything's fine

Yeah, I'm working
Making money
I'm just starting to build a name
I can feel it
Around the corner
I could make it any day

Mother mother
Can you hear me?
Yeah I'm sober sure I'm sane
Life is perfect
Never better
Still your daughter still the same

If I tell you what you want to hear
Will it help you to sleep well at night?
Are you sure that I'm your perfect dear?
Now just cuddle up and sleep tight

I'm hungry
I'm dirty
I'm losing my mind
Everything's fine

I'm freezing
I'm starving
I'm bleeding to death
Everything's fine

I miss you

I love you

    General CommentPersonally, I completely LOVE the song. It's almost like she's kinda showing off to her mother that she's in some kind of agony but also that the mother can't do anything about it. It's very edgy and I can see where some people wouldn't like it.

    General Commenteh not a fan. it's good when they're singing, but when they scream it's like don't quit your day job. They're just so not hardcore enough to appeal to the screaming is music crowd
