    General CommentProbably the greatest Can song ever. The 20 minute version we hear was cut from a 6 hour improvisation. Malcolm really gave all he got here. The lyrics captures the feelings of being away from a loved one and at the same time praising her for what she'd done.

    General Commentwell done documenting the full lyrics for this one. I would check to see if its all correct, but I do not have the patience that you clearly do.

    General CommentI believe these lyrics are improvised...

    Not the greatest CAN song, Damo Suzuki simply packed more punch as a vocalist, more, in fact, than anyone else I know.
