The winter queen looks up and sighs:
"I wish that I controlled the skies
For up above is where to stand
To rule those who walk on the land"

The summer queen flies by and sees
Her realm of butterflies and bees
And said, "I wish I lived below
Instead I sail where breezes blow"

And the rain came down
It tried to seep
Into the ground
But water deep

Pecked and poked
And sodden soil
Already soaked
Began to roil

The prince of silence walks below
Inside a cave of ice and snow
He says, "I wonder why?"
But words are locked in glaciers, never heard

The prince of music on guitar
Neglects to play a single bar
But music trapped inside his head
Resounds and fills the space instead

The winter queen looks up and sighs

    My InterpretationThe opening verse is probably in part a reference to Persephone, the wife of Hades in Greek mythology who had to spend winter in the underworld with her husband, causing winter above.

    The Summer queen flies over to say "the grass ain't always greener, girl..."

    The prince of silence and the guitarist neglecting to play a single bar may relate to a certain guitarist's time of addiction and musical hiatus. But then again there's that whole bit in Zappa's Joe's Garage where the guitarist, finally silenced and driven insane by the oppressive society represented by the Central Scrutinizer, plays one last guitar solo -- but only in his mind.

    Winterqueen is one of my favorites from Phish's "Fuego."
