about

in san antonio texas erik sanden (the unables, the mechanical walking robot, buttercup, demitasse) started a dial-a-song. people called from all over the world just to hear a new song every week by calling 210-pet-able. erik started out alone, but soon enlisted the help of his friends to write and record a new song every week on a cassette 4 track which he would then mix onto an answering machine cassette tape. the songs were all done in one session with borrowed and improvised equipment like trash cans with tambourines on top of them, and without the aid of computers.
these are the songs which i (wilton) helped erik to make for dial-a-song during a span of two or three months. i mostly played drums, bass and did harmony vocals, but i did occasionally write parts and sing lead vocals.

-note that each of the 9 songs costs one dollar and the album whole album costs 8 dollars. this makes buying the whole album cheaper.

Track Name: D.A.S. wiggle
dial-a-song makes me giggle
dial-a-song makes me cry
dial-a-song makes me wiggle
call it everyday and every night
Track Name: my little plant
so i retreat
i concede
i absconed
i suscede
i fall away
from this world
i give up completely

my little plant
shine in the sun
my little plant
shine in the sun
shine in the sun

catapillar creeps
cross the dewey leaf
golden ridges swan up the upper bows
i wouldn't feel so alone
on my internal streets
but i know that you're really gone

my little plant
shine in the sun
my little plant
shine in the sun
shine in the sun

i turn the corner
my internal streets
i see he's riding
she once asked you
how can anyone know anybody
i wouldn't feel so alone
i know that you're fully grown
Track Name: sun in the sky
i know it's me
i know it's me
i know it's me
i know it's me

i know that the upper edge of your mind is the sun and the sky
i know the edge of you
i know that the upper edge of your mind is the sun and the sky
i know the edge of you

i felt so damn bad
love drips and gathers in the sand
now my eyes have seen just what my hands have done

and where the protesters bodies were laying
the grass has turned to hay

i know it's mean
i know it's mean

i know that the upper edge of your mind is the sun and the sky
i know the edge of you
floating so high

i felt so damn bad
love drips and gathers in the sand
but now my eyes have seen just what my hands have done

i know it's mean
she was almost happy
but i broke her heart
it's the same story for so many
so cruel
Track Name: it's time to let it go
it's time to let it go
it's time to let it go

cuz you know
you can't go
moving on this slow
so let go
and you'll grow
to enjoy the view from down below

it's time to let it go
it's time to let it go
Track Name: fat man & little man
up above
it's dusty blue in the sky
bananas are growing
even in england tonight
germany streaks through the sky
the softest spike strikes my open eye

i wanna say yeah
i wanna say yeah
i wanna say uh huh

far away there's a yellow tribe
centuries of ceramics
painted boxes make up changing screens
if this mushroom is worth it's weight
it will light up the sky

i wanna say yeah
i wanna say yeah
up above
an edge
in my line of sight
Track Name: don't hang up
don't hang up
this is just the intro
don't hang up
this is just the intro
don't hang up
this is just the intro
to dial-a-song
Track Name: god's own feelings
you don't know me
you never did

down by the water
no one we could see
someone lied for you

everybody stares
everybody will want to know
everybody
talking
if they ask you just tell them

you don't know me
you don't know me

say it and you'll see

everybody stares
everybody will want to know
everybody is watching you and me
talking
if they ask you, just tell them
you don't know me
it's the same story for so many
someone leaves for good

on that sunny day
your smile was more than enough
on that summer day
my memory slips and gets hung up
your smile was more than enough

uh huh
uh huh

see me on the muddy bands
ceiling
god's own feelings
Track Name: the best medicine in the world
call dial-a-song when you feel bad
call dial-a-song when you feel sad
the best medicine in the world is dial-a-song
