"Llama" as written by Trey Anastasio of Phish...
[Many years after the overthrow of Wilson, a rebel soldier crouching high on a hilltop above the war torn forests of Gamehendge spots a group of loyalists approaching from their lakeside encampment below. His trusty llama stands beside him, loaded down with a canvas pack that holds two large bazooka type guns to the animal's sides. Near the man sits a cache of blastoplast, each capable of destroying the entire hillside in an instant...]


Sunrise over the turquoise mountains, messenger birds in sight

They came up through the valley, both sides at a time

Through the cold steady rain Raid! I bend down

Poke a double decker on a llama. Llama, Taboot Taboot

Trigger a blastoplast, ramshackle laker recedes I start to run

It was the loudest thing I'd ever heard And I knew my time had come

To enter the delta


Leave it on press, depress, depress.

Llama, Taboot Taboot

    General CommentAFAIK the lyrics, "Leave it on press, depress, depress/llama, taboot taboot" aren't officially confirmed.

    "Depress depress" sounded like "pass the grass" to me at first. It also sounded like, "living on prayers from place to place."

    Since he's carrying blastoplast, it would also make sense if it was, "leave it on blast, blastoplast, llama, taboot taboot", although that doesn't sound likely.

    Song MeaningIt seems that the rebel soldier may have seen no way out and decided, valiantly, to take his enemies down with him.
