about

Originally made as a "beat"(?) for a guy who didn't want it. I remember being stoned & grumpy (months or years later) and improvising the vocals over this one night. I recall intentionally mispronouncing words/substituting similar-sounding words, thus making it nearly impossible for anyone including myself to be clear on what the lyrics "really are." Additional spooky sounds & tones were added later for the "Hooray!" LP.
The accompanying photo is another one of my favorite King T. imageries.

lyrics

I can feel the drown & rising
I can feel the drown & rising
Lover lover got the sex appeal
Lover lover got the sex appeal
Lover lover got the sex appeal
I can feel as the anger's rising
I can feel as the fear is rising
I can feel as the drowning is rising in me
I can feel as the fear is rising
Fear is rising, fear is rising
...the sex appeal
Lover lover got the sex appeal
Lover got the sex...
I can feel as the...
Rise & fall
I can feel as the drowning rising
I can feel the drown & rising
