Maggot Brain

Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time

For y'all have knocked her up

I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe

I was not offended

For I knew I had to rise above it all

Or drown in my own shit

As the story goes, George Clinton, the leader of Funkadelic, told guitarist Eddie Hazel to imagine he was told his mother died and later learned it was not true, this all under the influence of LSD, Once Clinton realised how powerful the solo sounded he faded the bass played by Billy Bass Nelson and Drums Played by Tiki Fulwood out.
