"Superabound" as written by and Charles Thompson....
You heard the sun today
There she blows, there she blows
You saw the wind a-shining
You don't know, you don't know
You felt a tree that does fall
You don't know, that's okay
You don't have much taste for bouquet

I'm bored with the valleys and bored with the peaks
So I bought a ticket to the freaks
I saw a chicken with two heads
Saw something else that was headless
Then PT said see the egress
'Cause you move when the salesman speaks
I superabound
But I still got nothing to do

A space is made by telephone
They thought time would be overthrown
And they compiled a wish list
From Mars duels to a dish kissed
I tried to talk to the Ishist
But he was debating with his clone
I superabound
But I still got nothing to do
Well, they thought it was a coup
But they still got nothing to do

You must see my domicile
I had it built in decastyle
The other day at the potlach
Come visiting was a sasquatch
He said although I'm a mismatch
Could I stay just for awhile?
'Cause the likes of us are few
And we still got nothing to do
I superabound
But I still got nothing to do

    General CommentThere's so much going on in this song, it's hard to know where to start. Well, it's been said that Frank's "ticket to the freaks" was a tab of acid or two, but I don't know if that's neccessary. The song in general is about how even though there are some strange things in this world, like bigfoots, con men, (PT "There's a sucker born every minute" Barnum once put up a sign that said "This Way to the Great Egress" and charged money for it. Egress is a word for exit.) and space travel, sometimes you still don't know what to do with yourself.

    General Commentseems to me that it's just about how we are always willing to look for something new to pay attention to because life is pretty boring (even for bigfoot).

    and that there are people who are more than willing to herd us and capitalize on our boredom and shiny-thing searching mentality.

    Lyrics are what they are. The song just makes you wanna sing along. Love it.

    General CommentI heard the "See the egress" story a little differently: Once you left the freak show at PT Barnum's circus, you'd have to pay to get in again, but once you entered there was really nothing stopping you from just hanging around all day, which many people did. So rather than have to force people out, he just started having a barker come by the tent every few hours and entice people to step outside and see the egress.

    My InterpretationTo me this has always been about a god like being that is bored.
    To know everything and be everywhere leaves nothing to be experienced.
    In an attempt to alleviate the boredom he attempts to live increasing bizarre experiences, to no effect.
