). Lighten the Load (Track #6) is a featured song in Lbs.

Author's Note: Contrary to what may seem to be an album title dripping with emotional gravity and meaning, it's actually named for something completely different: The bassist for Paul and John's old band Stapler (staplermusic.bandcamp.com
) - Seth - owned an early Japanese cellphone steeped in inaccurate grammar and spelling. Hence, instead of "There are no messages" it displayed "All Memories are Empty" in classic Engrish format.
