"Contact" as written by and Alan Gordon Garry Bonner....
The tires are the things on your car
That make contact with the road
The car is the thing on the road
That takes you back to your abode

The tires are the things on your car
That make contact with the road
Bummed is what you are
When you go out to your car and it's been towed

I woke up one morning in November
And I realized I love you
It's not your headlights in front
Your tailpipe, or the skylight above you
It's the way you cling to the road
When the wind tries to shove you
I'd never go riding away
And come back home without you

    General CommentI find it amazing how Phish can have such simple lyrics, and the listener can still be so interested in what they are saying.

    General CommentProbably just an excuse to do a silly song with a bass intro for Mike Gordon to play....
