Originally appeared on Trout Mask Replica

Lucid tentacles test ‘n sleeved
‘n joined ‘n jointed jade pointed
Diamond back patterns
Neon meate dream of a octafish
Artifact on rose petals
‘n flesh petals ‘n pots
Fack ‘n feast ‘n tubes tubs bulbs
In jest incest injest injust in feast incest
‘n specks ‘n spreckled spreckled
Speckled speculation
Fedlocks waddlin’ feast
Archaic faces frenzy
Ceramic fists artificial deceased
‘n cists rancid buds burst
Dank drum ‘n dung dust
Meate rose ‘n hairs
Meaty meate rose ‘n hairs
Meaty dream wet meate
Limp damp rows
Peeled ‘n felt fields ‘n belts
Impaled on ‘n daeman
Mucus mules
Twat trot tra la tra la
Tra la tra la tra la
Whale bone fields ‘n belts
Whale bone farmhouse
Cavorts girdled ‘n latters uh lite
Cavorts girdled ‘n latters uh lite
Uh dipped amidst
Squirmin’ serum ‘n semen ‘n syrup ‘n semen
‘n serum
Stirrupped in syrup
Neon meate dream of a octafish

 

(1969)

    pure poetry, poison, words, i don’t know. Compulsions, steady thoughts anger, unbridled, bride, broke, band, guitars, dick-headed bassists, low, no kidding, anti-procreating, abortion, abortive plans, aborted. new and empty, hollow, sleepy, languid, definition, definition. Words, letters, symbols, emptiness, poetry.

    Line 9 is missing the “r” in “spreckled”, and should be:

    ‘n specks ‘n spreckled spreckled

    (As per the lyric sheet included, as well as the recordng itself.)
