"Splash 1" as written by and R. Erickson Tom Hall....
I've seen your face before,
I've known you all my life.
And though it's new,
your image cuts me like a knife.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
The neon from your eyes is splashing into mine.
It's so familiar in a way I can't define.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
And though this is awful speedy,
We needn't bother sleeping,
All we might say is understood.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
The fierceness of my feelings,
Rocks me like a war.
It's good to know we won't be strangers anymore.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.

    General CommentDropping acid and looking inside yourself, seeing yourself the way you appear to the outside world for the first time (I've seen your face before, I've known you all my life / And though it's new, your image cuts like a knife) or coming to terms with your own personality. Very introspective, deep stuff for early psychadelia.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure that the lyrics to the bridge actually go like this:

    And though this is our first meeting
    We needn't bother speaking
    All we might say is understood

    My Interpretationits about dropping acid with a friend, saying about time dilation (although this is rather speedy), the connection you have with your friend is perfect that you dont have to speak to them to understand them (all we might say is understood), also talks about how your emotions rage (the fierceness of my feelings rocks me like a war) & the feeling of connection with your buddy after the trip (its good to know we wont be strangers anymore)

    General CommentI, Clementine Hall, wrote "Splash 1." Some of the lyrics attributed to it are comically incorrect. I've corrected two lines as follows: "Though this is our first meeting [not "though this is awful speedy"], we needn't bother speaking" [not bother "sleeping"] and "the fierceness of our feelings rocks me like a roar" [not "war"].
