This is a great song if you don’t pay attention to the tortured lyrics.
Heard a great interview with them a couple years ago. They said they hated lyrics, they were just part of what they had to do. And they were really stoned most of the time. So they admit their lyrics mostly gibberish, that just match the sounds correctly.
Well, if you’re stoned, the lyrics make perfect sense and are really beautiful.
How about “sitting by the dock of the bay”? Wha?
