Arcane offices delivering deluxe information:

1) the quaker's seal of approval
2) more movies less trivial pursuit

I'm a born again boot stomping witch-humper
Are we there yet?
The skips and flips are taking sips of

Liquid indian
Liquid indian
Liquid indian
Liquid indian

Soft clay orifice
Quivering like new structures and formations

A perversion not known to the perfect ones

A stinging disruption, alas
It is quick like the ultimate brush-off

Is it time yet?
We've coupons and stamps
And valuable cramps from

Liquid indian
Liquid indian
Liquid indian
Liquid indian

    General Commentthe lyrics don't seem to make any sense, but the chorus is just fantastic. Yes it's just two words, but the way he sings it, and throw in the "wa wa oooo"s and you fall in love with it. Or at least I did.

    Song MeaningI believe “Liquid Indian” is a reference to India Ink and the song speaks to the oppression often found in official printed documents — “seals of approval”, “coupons and stamps”. They’re the documents of the “perfect ones” imposing order. The speaker in this song prefers a more malleable world – the “perversion” of pictures in motion, quivering soft clay and its possibilities of shape. But alas, the official will is imposed, the rejection arrives, the cease-and-desist, the figurative cramps we feel due to those messages written in “Liquid Indian”. The song presses this irony in the smoothly flowing “Liquid Indian” chorus and the halting angular verse sections. Another gem from GBV.

    General CommentWhat initially seems abstract and formless? Closer examination reveals broad, intricate levels of wordplay most songwriters wouldn’t attempt.

    For example, having words + lines in the first verse “rhyme” (several times) with those in the second:

    arcane => soft clay

    offices => orifice

    quivering => delivering

    structures => deluxe

    information => formations

    skips flips sips => stamps cramps

    More challenging than abcb? Hell yes.
