Ween – Mutilated Lips Lyrics 1 month ago
I think the chorus is about touching something divine and wanting to get back to that place ... from a fish's perspective. I know the Ween dudes fish. Mutilated lips ... you catch a fish, he's hooked, you throw him back, he's left with mutilated lips. He remembers being caught. The fish being caught as a metaphor for touching something divine. The fish afterwards tells himself "I'm fine accepting only fresh brine" but he wants to get another drop of "this" (the divine) but knows it'll never be ("yeah you wish"). Trying to get back to a high you can't quite recapture, but you've got the mutilated lips to prove it happened
