"While you were gone, these faces filled with darkness. The obvious was hidden. With nothing to believe in, The compass always points to Terrapin. Sullen wings of fortune beat like rain. You're back in Terrapin for good or ill again, for good or ill again." AGAIN?

i always think about terraplane blues, and syd barrett's terrapin (great minds?) and when I take all the vowels out of trippin situation i get TRPPN STTN, but that's not quite the same as TRRPN STTN and involves droppin' the g, so put that down to stoned navel-gazing.

I have gazed at many a stoned navel without experiencing that revelation.

Great work! I wonder if we'll learn more. Might be worth checking in with Nick at the Archives...
