I woke to the world one morning did not really know what was going on Didn't care about tomorrow worry when tomorrow comes I went outside that night set the ole imagination a flight
For one second I felt like a kid on Christmas day feeling stops all if I said in a word I will explain if I may
I climed up a tree that night Sat up in the branches and I felt just like a bird it was the best feeling in the world
Felt so good that night my soul it seemed to fly around that night as I flew that night
For one second I felt like a bird hangin' up in the air feelin' stops all if I said in a word the feeling to be without a care
Swam in the sea that night dove through the waves and I felt like a fish it was the best feeling in the world
Felt so good that night my soul it seemed to swim around that night as I swam that night
For one second I Felt like a fish cruising around in the sea, the feeling stops all if I said in a word the feeling to be free

    General Commentthe grateful dead and string cheese are alot alike. however a major difference is that the dead is better. i would like to point out the similarity between string cheeses:"Didn't care about tomorrow worry when tomorrow comes "

    and the deads one more saturday night lyrics: "Don’t worry ‘bout tomorrow
    Lord, you’ll know it when it comes"

    **quite a similarity....isnt there. also notice that the grateful dead version which obviously came first is much better ne way. but er yes i am no string cheese hater---but that line shocked me.

    General CommentI posted this in the Keller lyrics page

    Are you guys really that clueless? Acid trip? How happy he once was? Can we look beyond the surface folks? I had to register an account just to correct all the fallacies in these comments.

    Clearly this song is about the jam band scene. The first verse takes place before the narrator goes to a jamband concert. But at the end of the verse, he goes out and sets the ol imagination a flight, presumably he goes to a concert.

    In the chorus he explains what he felt at the show, and what show did he go to? 2nd verse: "I sat up in the branches and felt just like a bird" This is an obvious refrence to the Grateful Dead. Bird Song, So Many Roads etc are just a few of the many songs that reference birds in their lyric. He goes on to explain the feeling of being at the concert in the next chorus.

    What does the narrator do next? He goes to a Phish show, 3rd Verse: "Swam in the sea that night
    Dove through the waves and I felt like a fish" I don't have to go into detail on this simile.

    In the end, after going to these shows, the narrator has experienced the best feeling in the world, the feeling to be free, which is precisely what the jam band scene offers.
