I'm up and I can take what you give
And I'm here but I don't want you to live with me
`Cause all I want is a taste for free

I'm down and I will drag you along and around
Until you burst into song and unwind
And leave your new life behind for a while

Cause I can see through the lines
Cause I can see through the lines

I'm down and I will drag you along and around
Until you burst into song and unwind
And leave your new life behind for a while

I'm out and I will stay here alone and without
Someone controlled by the phone and TV
`Cause what it's doing to me is fine

Cause I can see through the lines
Cause I can see through the lines

Oooh oooh
Step into space
Oooh oooh
Alter my place
Oooh oooh
That someone else made
Why I have stayed
Into things I could be
Or if I could see
Into fog that surrounds
And pins me to the ground

I can see through the lines
I can see through the lines
I can see through the lines
I can see through the lines

    General CommentWhatever the meaning, the rhythm against the voice and words makes it a very soothing piece of music. The voice is slow and transcending while the music is fast and stuck in second gear. By the end, you really want more. This is a great tune, one of Phish's best.

    General CommentHearing this song and Stash live at my first concert really got me hooked on phish. Taste doesn't seem to get too much attention. I'd like to hear someone's take on this.

    General CommentSeriously, this could be quite the dancing jam. They should play it more, although I guess 107 times is quite a lot.
