Phish Tide Turns

When you’re lost in the darkness

And the loneliness cuts so deep

When every breath is suffering

And you’re longing for sleep

You don’t have to be alone

I’ve still got a kind word to spare

I’ve still have an ear to listen

I’ve got time

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

Yes I will

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

Till the tide turns…

When the wolf is at your door

And the mirror holds your nightmare

There’s no need to hide your tears

If it’s too much for you to bear

You don’t have to be alone

I’ll still always be here for you

Together we can make it through

We’ve got time, yes we do

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

Yes I will

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

Till the tide turns…

You don’t have to be alone

I’ll still always be here for you

Together we can make it through

We’ve got time, yes we do

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

Yes I will

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

I’ll wait with you till the tide turns

Till the tide turns…

Phish Sample In A Jar

It’s hidden far away

But someday I may tell

The tale of metal tangle

When into your world I fell

Without you now I wander soaking

Secretly afraid

‘Cause in your grasp the fears don’t last

(And some of them have stayed)

I wheeled around because I

Didn’t hear what you had said

And saw you dancing with Elihu

Up on Leemor’s bed

And I was foggy rather groggy, you helped me to my car

The binding belt enclosing me, a Sample in a Jar

And on the market stands unfolding

With all their willies and their wares

I shuffle by alert but numb

To all the glances and the glares

And I think of you unheeding

All the times I raise my cup

It’s now I know that you knew that

I’d soon end up end up

[Chorus]

You tricked me like the others

And now I don’t belong

The simple smiles and good times seem all wrong

Phish The Horse

It’s time I sling the baskets off this overburdened horse

Sink my toes into the ground and set a different course

Cause if I were here and you were there

I’d meet you in between

And not until my dying day, confess what I have seen.

Phish No Men In No Man’s Land

How far have we fallen, how far can we go?

How far will we fall, if there’s nothing below

You stand on a rock, suspended in air

Emblazoned with sunlight keenly aware

That we’ve broken free, something has changed

A tear in the fabric, some tiles rearranged

We are the no men in no man’s land

We are the no men in no man’s land

Darkness the one thing we all understand

We are the no men in no man’s land

We are the no men in no man’s land

And the truth will rise above, and fiction fall beneath

Although the lies may bite, the truth has all the teeth

You see us as a window, you’re happy that we’re here

Exposed to all the elements, while inside all is clear

But if you hold a mirror, and you turn it to one side

The depth you see within at first, will find a place to hide

We are the no men in no man’s land

The loss of all motion, the absence of sound

When there’s no sun to circle around

We are the no men in no man’s land

Phish Talk

I can’t talk my talk with you

Nothing’s ever soaking through

The filter that surrounds your thoughts

And holds out lessons left untaught

I can’t talk my talk with you

Nothing’s ever soaking through

The filter that surrounds your thoughts

And holds out lessons left untaught

I can’t talk my talk with you

I can’t sing my song with you

Nothing’s ever soaking through

The filter that surrounds your thoughts

And holds out lessons left untaught

I can’t sing this song with you

Nothing’s ever soaking through

The filter that surrounds your thoughts

And holds out lessons left untaught

I can’t sing my song with you

I can’t talk my talk with you

Phish Wading In The Velvet Sea

I took a moment from my day

Wrapped it up in things you say

Mailed it off to your address

You’ll get it pretty soon unless

The packaging begins to break

And all the points I tried to make

Are tossed with thoughts into a bin

Time leaks out my life leaks in

You won’t find moments in a box

And someone else will set your clocks

I took a moment from my day

Wrapped it up in things you say

And mailed it off to you

Phish Twenty Years Later

I can hold my breath for a minute or so

Five days without food is as long as I’ll go

I didn’t sleep once for four days and three nights

I once didn’t stop for seven red lights

I jumped into water that’s fifty degrees

I’ve rowed in a kayak in thirty foot seas

I’ve stayed in the woods for a week with a knife

A flint, when I lost it nearly cost me my life

Twenty years later I’m still upside down

And it’s a small world and it’s turning real fast

(We’re upside down)

It’s a new day and the morning has passed

(Turned upside down)

It’s a short road but the mountains aren’t tall

(Lived upside down)

It’s a small world but we all start out small

I’ve pulled through air though I feel I’m alone

I stick with the others to the skin of the stone

I stop for a stranger just to give him a lift

I cling like a lizard to the side of a cliff

I treat every minute like an hour and then

It seems like a year has just flashed by again

We build a foundation but where do we stand

When all air is water and all water is land?

Twenty years later, I’m still upside down

And it’s a small world and it’s turning real fast

(We’re upside down)

It’s a new day but the morning has passed

(Turned upside down)

It’s a short road but the mountains aren’t tall

(Lived upside down)

It’s a small world but we all start out small

Feel it turning in circles

And you’re never the same again

Spin slowly while sounds cascade and decay

I’m here upside down

It’s a small world but it’s turning real fast

(Turned upside down)

It’s a new day but the morning has passed

(Here upside down)

It’s a short road but the mountains aren’t tall

(Lived upside down)

It’s a small world and we all start out small

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Inside this silence see

All are free, all are free second time around

Phish The Wedge

We’re bobbing on the surface

and the shadow glides below

They say she feels my heartbeat

Oh..But how I’ll never know

That it’s the ocean flowing in our veins

Oh..That it’s the salt that’s in our tears

Oh..’Cause we could have come so very far

Oh..In at least as many years!

Take the highway through the Great Divide [x2]

I’m building you a pyramid

With limestone blocks so large

I drag them from the mountain top

You’ll need a two car garage

And it’s the ocean flowing in our veins

Oh..That it’s the salt that’s in our tears

Oh..Cause we could have come so very far

Oh..In at least as many years

Take the highway through the Great Divide [x2]

Cause it’s the ocean flowing in our veins

Oh..That it’s the salt that’s in our tears

Oh..Cause we could have come so very far

Oh..In at least as many years

Take the highway through the Great Divide

Phish Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a cliff bar and some cold green tea

Got clouds that seem to follow me

Got strange demands piled up on me

Got memories, got memories

Got memories, memories of being free

Gonna steal time from the faulty plan

Gonna act as though I’m still a man

Gonna give you one last chance to see

Gonna shrug demands off of me

Gonna dream, gonna dream, gonna dream

Gonna dream, dream of being free

Gonna steal time from the faulty plan

Steal time from the faulty plan

Gonna steal time from the faulty plan

Steal time from the faulty plan

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Gonna steal time from the faulty plan

Steal time from the faulty plan

Gonna steal time from the faulty plan

Steal time from the faulty plan

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Got a blank space where my mind should be

Phish Train Song

All the way home we felt we had a chance

To review the coulds before we were born

And to invite a new game of can’ts

Absorbed in the clouds a voice from afar said

“With the right device you can make a pattern grow

Or you can tune up your car”

So we stayed on the train admiring the time

As the lights of the city drew near

We drank a little wine

They were blurry and green outer space in between

With a depth and a form unclear

Then we saw it up ahead

A flickering lantern lit up on the tracks

In the rugs that had covered up the bridge

From the banks of a river to the bed

Of the valley upstream to the place we live

The glass on the lantern cast back the sight

Of a drive-in movie we drove by below

We saw where we’d been in the pictures within

Projecting all the places we would go

So we follow the scene and flowed up your steps

To a smooth wooden floor in a trance

The train whistle melody woved through the trees

And in through the door to signal the turns of a dance
