    A song Trey and I wrote in 2008. I still have great hopes for this one... This one was written first on the drums -- an experimental track with fills and peaks and valleys with no music in mind. Then Trey added everything else and made it conform to the existing contours of the drum-scape. It sounds logical, but it was a backwards way of working and is one of the reasons I love listening to it.

      What I Love so much is how Smoothly these lyrics flow right through my head, especially that last verse.

      @phisher207: No offense but I could name about 50 songs that I would rather hear Phish put in the rotation before this one. While not a bad song, It's out of Treys vocal reach and a pretty clandestine track. My vote is Page's Half The Way to the Moon. That song has limitless potential to take us to another world!

      Great song. Pigtail feel to it (which I also hope they play more of going forward)

      phisher207 at 0.04 on October 06, 2012 05:00 should threaten to Kung Fu Kick Trey if he doesn't get this song in the New Year's Run... I LOVE this song!

      I feel that I'm going back
      there's no where else to go
      forward isn't here yet
      but backward seems so slow

      perhaps I could go sideways
      into another being
      if I slipped into you
      then who would I be seeing

      and when you looked at me
      alone upon my lawn
      you'd see my vacant stare
      and think that I had gone
      through the polished glass

      let's go on a journey together
      we'll follow currents of air
      it's easy to move across boundaries
      harder to see if they're there

      there's something I'm dying to tell you
      a whisper from some other time
      I suddenly felt the idea form
      I'm not even sure if it's mine
