Blind me with ambition like a razor to the throat
Cast aside your foolish pride I'll cast the final vote
The feelings you've been waiting for are clawing thru your skin
And if you look above you'll see the vultures moving in

Timing is everything, that much I know.
Sometimes I'm fast and sometimes I'm slow
Some days vacation but some days I'm told
I've come to to the end of the line
But when I can't be what's expected of me
I look at the clock and say this can't be
Watching it pass without reason or rhyme
I feel I'm suspended in time
I see the vultures moving in
(repeat)

    General Commentthe lyrics posted on here, mind-bogglingly enough, are the lyrics that are listed for this song everywhere and they are incorrect...not all of them, mind you...in fact, the entire first part is correct but the 2nd part is undoubtedly off.....okay, first>>>>here's what the fast lyrics are:

    Timing is everything, that much i know
    Sometimes i'm faster and sometimes i'm slow
    Assume expectation and sometimes i'm told
    to go to the end of the line

    But when i don't do what's expected of me
    I look at the clock and i say "this can't be"
    Watching it pass without reason or rhyme
    I find myself drifting in time

    I see the vultures moving in....


    ******now here's the section that is not listed ANYWHERE at all that they added at some point after 97 (i think):


    Paul Utech reminds of the bible
    Andromeda was used, i think, before
    My guess is that i'll never name this ghost well
    But i think i hear him knocking on my door


    ****so, there they are; the lyrics as sung by phish, not as heard by phans.....til next time
