Labor To Life

"A musical journey from conception to birth."

Labor To Life was a pre-release single from the Mimes On Rollercoasters™ - 3 album.  Imagine yourself in the delivery-room, giving birth to your first child.  (Okay, if you're a guy, that might be hard.  In that case, image you are in the delivery room with your mate, witnessing the birth of your first child.)  The confusion.  The pain.  The wonder.  The hope.  The questions!  Hopefully, we've accurately depicted that very moment with this song.  Enjoy!
