  • I lick my brain in silence
    Rather squeeze my head instead
    Midget man provoking violence
    Listen not to what I said

    I said, please calm it down
    Everything is turning brown

    Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
    Of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind
    I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine
    You can get another drop of this, yeah, you wish

    Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
    Of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind
    I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine
    You can get another drop of this, yeah, you wish

    Laughing lady living lover
    Ooh, you sassy frassy lassie
    Find me skull of Haile Sellase, I
    Give me shoes so I can tapsy

    Tap all over this big world
    Take my hand you ugly girl

    Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
    Of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind
    I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine
    You can get another drop of this, yeah, you wish

    Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
    Of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind
    I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine
    You can get another drop of this

    Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
    Of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind
    I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine
    You can get another drop of this, yeah, you wish

    Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
    Of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind
    I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine
    You can get another drop of this, yeah, you wish Writer/s: AARON FREEMAN, MICHAEL MELCHIONDO, MICHAEL MELCHIONDO, JR.

  • G from Potomac, MdDoes "find me skull of Haile Selassie I" refer to anything? I know Rasta lost a lot of followers when the supposedly immortal Selassie died, in fact this was one of the main tenets of the faith which managed to survive this somehow. So is this saying "show me the proof that he actually died?" Was there controversy about it, his corpse never being seen by witnesses, etc?
    I agree that Ween really stands out above the masses who are their contemporaries. Beneath all the bombast and weirdness is good old fashioned excellent songwriting, melodic songs with strong hooks and great beats. They will never receive the credit due to them as long as we will all live.
  • Kristen from Philadelphia, Paprobally my favorite ween song.
    the mollusk is my favorite album
  • Ash from Mooroopna, Australiai dont think the song has a different tuning (nessie) however i think ween have done an amazing job writing this song, especially love the solo from Dean Ween
  • Eric from Fargo, Ndacid alone does not create or inspire songs because the song is always in your mind and the acid just releases it and Ween is a prime example of drug use as key to freedom
  • Nessie from Sapporo, JapanSean, I agree. This is one of their best songs. I particularly like the unorthodox open chords on the acoustic guitar. These are made possible by the non-standard tuning (guitar players will know what I'm talking about). That first note just blows me away. This is the best song on their best CD.
  • Sean from Brentwood, CaAcid alone would never inspire a song as odd and wonderful as Ween's "Mutilated Lips". Ween is an altar of strange in a sea of mediocrity.
