If you can heal the symptoms
But not affect the cause
It's quite a bit like trying to heal
A gunshot wound with gauze

If you instead attempt to wrest
The pistol from the hand
Then I would not be able to
Equate my life with sand

Flowing through the hourglass
Pushing through the funnel
Turn once more while racing
All your siblings for the tunnel

Slide and let the silicone
Embrace you as you fall
Then bounce and land you let
Your brothers crush you to the wall

I would choose my own religion
And worship my own spirit
But if he ever preached to me
I wouldn't want to hear it

I'd drop him, a forgotten god,
Languishing in shame
And then if I hit stormy seas
I'd have myself to blame

Huge Dead fan here.  Next best thing, sorta.  They are similar but different.. Always puts me in a great mood.
Likely better on strong hallucinogens. 
Going to see Trey with Oysterhead tonight in Colorado!
groovy... yeah
...come on, let's dance...

Ummm... must be a different Dead.

More Phish please!
For some reason reminds me of Shriekback, so it's good.
Rare but pleasant treat to hear Phish! Agreed that live is best, but there are some great studio cuts, like Down with Disease, or anything off Rift!

Track down the version from Watkins Glen in 2011.  You won't be disappointed.

...the first time i saw a photograph of phish, i was surprised to see all white people; that's just not how i'd pictured them in my mind and i have no idea why...i'm not quite sure how that's relevant to someone in the DRC jamming out to phish, other than to note that RP enjoys a nicely multicultural fanbase...

With you on that - but still a good tune. The best thing about a fish concert is the fans.
 
Infinitely better live.
A Phish song I actually like. Very pleasant.  
Thanks for the PHISH Bill!!!

Thanks you! 
great seque!  during Starship Trooper I was thinking how much early Phish (YEM, Fluffhead etc) owed to early Yes!  

Love it...........!

 


this is good stuffing
This is funky! Never heard of them before but catchy rhythm.
As I must always point out to RP listeners, don't judge Phish by their studio albums. Their live stuff is so much different. I'm going to see them at Dick's in Denver in a couple of days. Can't wait. 
Everybody in my homeless camp loves this song...
Brilliant !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We be dancing...  love this song...
 
One of those few studio songs that even comes close to their live stuff. If you really want to get to know Phish, you must listen to their live music. Better yet, go see one of their shows.
First Phish song that didn't bore/irritate me....

 
that's an outhouse door  

love the music

marvelous...
 

These dudes are not just virtuosos— they are also geniuses...  love this song...

 

phantastic song...

Radio Paradise plays Phish? No way!
oh hell no.  please no more phish
Loving this song{#Sunny}

This song is soooo good it puts a spring in my step this autumn evening...
 
GOOD!

The album art reminds me of the outhouse that was outside my grandparents cabin by the river.  For some reason it was called Ms. Jones.  I always hated using that thing as a kid.

Everybody in my hotel room loves this song...


 
Hmmm . . . more meh than ever. . . 


I'll dance to this...
 
Tasty!{#Dancingbanana_2}
It's Phantastic just as it is.....

Hmm, no disrespect, but Phish is a perfect RP band. Now, hearing Iron Maiden next would be a REAL surprise!
 
Agreed. But would love to hear Murder in the Rue Morgue.  Love that song.

Farmhouse is the album where I stopped listening to Phish; wish you were playing their earlier stuff!

 

Yeah, I'd love to hear some from "A Picture of Nectar" - the cd that started my Phish love.  The only band I came remotely close to "following" - but I know seeing 3 or 4 shows in a row isn't really following, to the hardcore... does it help that I didn't shower for several days during that time period?  {#Stupid} 

Liking the aquatic theme of the last few songs... but how did AfroCelts fit in?  (I wasn't listening at that point so not sure if the song had a "fishy" theme.)

nice groove...
I normally do not like Phish, but this song is nice!  I was surprised to see it was not the Stone Roses — it sounded to me A LOT like "Fool's Gold".

You are joking right? Of course they do, that's the whole point of this band.
 
IMHO, Phish does not sound like the dead, any more than the Rolling Stones sound like the Beatles.

So, no. That ain't the point.

You definetely have to! Farmhouse is imho the best of Phish's studio releases!

Love this one.
I'm happy they're back!!—I hope i get a ticket!!!
Uncharacteristic? Would sound good on The Sopranos.

Interesting... have a country outhouse half built right now, should finish her up this weekend. ITS A FACT: Luna is a traditional symbol for women, Sol for men. Historically a pair of outhouses were marked so to keep them seperate. The women's outhouses lasted longer because men were (are) such slobs that their's tended to fall apart from lack of maintenance to the point that it got to be a rare sight to see a Sol marked outhouse period. Soon Luna was used on all outhouses out of habit, the inherent laziness in not wanting to build seperate privys, plus the need for a little bit of light, ventilation, and privacy. The outhouse pictured here is apparently in a matriarchal environment, the Sol symbol reduced to mere afterthought. Bitches.


 

What an odd bit of knowledge to possess.

Finally some Phish... I haven't really heard them before, just seen the name all over the web. Well? Nice music, but the singing is not that striking... kind of boring and I can't really hear any of the lyrics. No some Fish would be better.
I prefer Phish-Sand-Chips
Finally, finally -- some grooves I can really get into. More Phish, PLEASE!!!!!!!! While you're at it, some Trey Anastasio solo stuff would be good. And some MOE, etc.

well, you DID say the men were slobs . . . :lol:
Yikes--Yes into Phish! I don't know how much more self-indulgent noodling I can take.
Great tune............... :yes:
Can't play it loud enough, guess I should get better speakers
Mmm, love this layered, catchy groove! Very tasteful.
Whoooo Hoooo! Finally some PHISH! Love this song, love the album! This deserves a :dancingbanana:
Quite possibly the most informative RP comment ever.
