Track Name: Fuller, Abney, and Gatlin - We're Not Singing Any Song
I am making up these lyrics,
Because we're not singing any song.
I don't know where they're going,
And I won't be able to do this real long.

Here I am singing,
And I really don't know why..

Et cetera!
Track Name: Smothered in Hugs
In the summer that you came,
there was something eating everyone
and the sunshine fund was low
I could not greet you with a simple hello

But I believe you, no need for further questioning
I'm gonna leave with you
You can teach me all you know
Which way will we go now?
On our trip to taller windows
I really don't know now
I really don't know
Track Name: Elevate Me Later
Well you greet the tokens and stamps
underneath the fake-oil burnin' lamps
in the city we forgot to name
the concourse is four-wheeled shame
and the courthouse's double-breast
I'd like to check out your public protests
why you're complaining Ta!

Those who sleep with electric guitars
range rovin' with the cinema stars
and i wouldn't want to shake their hands
'cause they're in such a high-protein land
because there's 40 different shades of black
so many fortresses and ways to attack
so why you complaining? Ta!
Track Name: Metal
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Track Name: Melatonin
she ran into the wall
so sweet and unknown
a worn comatose

after six milograms
we're talking again
who would know
sweet and so low
who would know

my brain doesn't produce any
i'm soaring without anything

she said i'm taking my time
and now we'll move on with everyone
i'll see my friend soon again

my brain doesn't produce any
i'm soaring without anything

we said aloud
that we can't pull out
Track Name: Say It Ain't So
Somebody's Heine'
is crowdin' my icebox
somebody's cold one
is givin' me chills
Guess I'll just close my eyes
Flip on the tele'
Wrestle with Jimmy
Something is bubbling
Behind my back
The bottle is ready to blow
Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a lifetaker
I can't confront you
I never could do
That which might hurt you
So try and be cool
When I say
This way is a waterslide away from me
That takes you further every day
So be cool

Dear Daddy, I write you
In spite of years of silence
You've cleaned up, found Jesus
Things are good or so I hear
This bottle of Steven's
Awakens ancient feelings
Like father, stepfather
The son is drowning in the flood
