"Ol'e Nessie" as written by and Brann Dailor Brent Hinds....
Sanction lived in
Taught by masters
Flight of giving
Be mine always
Here for duration
Miss my sweet love
Times of sailing
Keep me grounded
Make us sure of future sanctions

    General CommentThe title confuses the true meaning of the song. The lyrics themselves describe being separated from a loved one by some ulterior force. And then in a Mastodonic twist, physical imagery is added to give the lyrics a more metaphorical and symbolic feel. The lyrics of the song, when applied to the loch ness monster, creates a feeling of Nessie being trapped and separated from the other creatures of his kind, perhaps?

    General CommentI agree Ddadutta.
    But it almost seems in that last line like he's asking them to stay in touch and tell them of "future sanctions"

    General CommentThis song is simply about the myth of the Loch Ness monster. Why do people have to try and complicate stuff? Jesus!

    General CommentThere are a lot of contradictions in this song that I think are really clever.


    "be mine always
    here for duration"

    If you are away from someone, then you can never always be theirs.

    "times of sailing
    keep me grounded"

    If you are sailing, you aren't grounded, and if you are grounded then you can't sail.
