And all throughout I gaze and glimpse you
Loving never did convince you
I see you when you're all alone
It's like a person I've not known

The moment ends though I feel winds
Blowing differently than ever before
And they're pushing me further from shore

A frothy cap the steady slap
Of lines against the rail
A biting rain take in the main

Up the rigging take in sail mind the skipper we'll not fail
He'll bring out wine all will be fine just hear the order watch the sail
The moment ends

    General CommentThe song was written about some sea captain, one of their friends...I forget his name...but A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing is also written about him.

    General CommentI wonder if they like..just sat around listening to the song for a really long time and someone observed that "the moment ends" sounds like "the moma dance" so they named it that...and I wonder if everyone else already figured that out before me and I'm just really behind the times

    General Commenti think this song is about fucking a person, and afterwards, it just doesnt seem worth it; like the person who you thought you were fucking is not like that whatsoever. the art of intercourse is refered to as 'the moma dance.'

    And all throughout I gaze and glimpse you
    Loving never did convince you
    I see you when you're all alone
    It's like a person I've not known
    (pretty self-explainitory)

    A frothy cap the steady slap
    -the head of a penis oozing out juice, the continues insertion of it within the private part

    A biting rain take in the main
    -refering to the woman taking in his 'frothy cap'

    ok, i dont care if thats not how phish meant it to be, thats how i take it. did anyone else get that, or is my mind just too far down in the gutter?

    this part sounds like losing someone you love, them just losing the connection you had. though the mood of the song doesn't fit that (though phish often does that with some of t heir songs).
