Playing tips

On Peter Hammill's official site, the lyrics for this one is provided along 
with its "sibling" - "Octopus". Both songs actually appear on the first US 
pressing of the album, however this one is not mentioned on the back cover, 
and is replaced by "Necromancer (later pressing was synchronized to that 
tracklist). The song was later restored in the album on its Fie! CD version 
(FIE9116). The base chord sequence is similar, as is the nature of both animals, 
and their themes are similar too. Nevertheless, I decided to provide them 
separately.

  but the rings on my arms are too deeply   burned...
