The Lyrics

d-lysergic acid diethylamide was discovered in 1943 by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann when he accidentally ingested a small amount of it. Hofmann synthesized the drug while studying alkaloids of ergot, a parasitic fungus of rye and wheat. Some studies have shown a correlation between periods of large-scale ergot contamination in Europe and 17th century America (Salem, MA, especially) and accusations of witchcraft against people acting strangely.
Ergot-got-got

Me mind on fire; me getting higher, from ergot-got-got.
Me see imaginary people—ergot-got-got.
Rye mold produces sights like this .
Was discovered by a Swiss
Chemist who were a big pharmaceuticals man.

He take this scum-scum-scum-scum
Off the rye: scum-scum-scum-scum,
It's called ergot-got-got, it's called ergot-got-got—it's mold.

He be a doctor; a mann of science—he know a lot-lot-lot.
His full name, Hofmann—abbreviation, Hof-Hof-Hof.
Empirical—cerebration time.
Experiment—blew his mind.
He became a far-out pharmaceuticals man.

He take this scum-scum-scum-scum
Off the rye: scum-scum-scum-scum,
It's called ergot-got-got, it's called ergot-got-got—it's mold.

He be a big smarty: Hof, Hof, Hof.
He be a big smarty: Hof, Hof, Hof.
He smart enough to synthesize ergot.
He smart enough to synthesize ergot.
Cogito ergo ergot
Hof's got ergot; Hof's got ergot.

My head reeling. (Ergot-got-got)
My head reeling. (Ergot-got-got)
My head reeling. (Ergot-got-got)
My head reeling. (Ergot-got-got)
Oh yeah—good mold.

Ergot-got-got.
[Repeat and fade]
