Phish – Bouncing Around the Room Lyrics 14 years ago
All of Phish's songs with water in the lyrics, are about LSD. It's their metaphor for the experience.
"We breathe deep, in a steam dream, and plunge below the water line,
down,
down,
down,
down..."

Grateful Dead – Cassidy Lyrics 14 years ago
The first verse is about Bobby's kid, Cassidy, the second is about Neal Cassady, "Lost now on the country miles in his Cadallac", Cassady was well nown for his savant-like driving ability. Bobby wrote this song well after Cassady died, it was written as a tribute to his life and his newborn child.

Hunter said in his lyric book "Box of Rain" that this is the only song that he's never had to explain the meaning. Some things people just "get".

Phish – Sample In A Jar Lyrics 14 years ago
Trey said somewhere that it's about him being so drunk one night that someone had to put him in the seat of a car and strap him up. He said he felt like a butterfly or something in a jar, helpless and on display.

Phish – Bathtub Gin Lyrics 14 years ago
Ok, The lyrics to this song were written by a fan, I forget her name, but it is a metaphor for the Phish show experience. What I'll say about Bathub Gin, the drink, is;
Can you think of something that is under prohibition now, as alcohol was in the 30's, that was widely enjoyed at Phish shows? It is made underground, as in the "bathtub". It is not mushrooms, but you are close...

Phish – Stash Lyrics 18 years ago
Verse 1
Imagine a young man running from the
"authorithies", and meeting up with a friend, who's leaning against a wall. He reaches in his pocket, pulls out a pipe, and knocks the ashes on to the ground. Then, in the other pocket bulls out his stash that he has gotten away with.
Verse 2
A young man chasing another "authority figure" and finally catches up with him. As soon as he does, the captured one calls his parteners on his radio, who decend on the scene with swiftness.
Verse 3 and 4
This verses has alternation lines on gibberish and insight. Laugh when they shoot you, say 'please dont do that', and Was it for this my life I sought....

Phish – You Enjoy Myself Lyrics 18 years ago
WATSIYEM all over again.....
Think about it... boy, man, god shit.
If you are in a casual conversation with someone that you aren't interested in or not even listening to, these words show up as placeholders in your speech.
Them:Blah blah blah
You: boy....
Blah blah blah
man.... and so on.
A lesson on listening comes at the vocal jam.
Pure emotion usually comes out of it (there are excetions; Cypress, for example, and many more)
Usually though the band and the crowd are feeling the same emotions. Of course this is all MHO.
