Walkin' in the park just the other day, Baby,

What do you, what do you think I saw?

Crowds of people sittin' on the grass with flowers in their hair said,

"Hey, Boy, do you wanna score?"

And you know how it is;

I really don't know what time it was, woh, oh,

So I asked them if I could stay awhile.

Phish - Waste Lyrics

Don't want to be an actor pretending on the stage

Don't want to be a writer with my thoughts out on the page

Don't want to be a painter 'cause everyone comes to look

Don't want to be anything where my life's an open book

A dream it's true

But I'd see it through

If I could be

Wasting my time with you

Don't want to be a farmer working in the sun

Don't want to be an outlaw always on the run

Don't want to be a climber reaching for the top

Don't want to be anything where I don't know when to stop

A dream it's true

But I'd see it through

If I could be

Wasting my time with you

So if I'm inside your head

Don't believe what you might have read

You'll see what I might have said

To hear it

Come waste your time with me

Come waste your time with me

So if I'm inside your head

Don't believe what you might have read

You'll see what I might have said

To hear it

Come waste your time with me

Come waste your time with me

Come waste your time with me

Come waste your time with me

Come waste your time with me

ok, that line did it.

MSG 12-28-98. Who knew I'd spend the next 6 years obsessing about some band from Vermont. Unfortunately the CD's in a box 1000 km away.

Fortunately I brought a spindle of Phish with me to New Brunswick yesterday. It helped keep NorthernWish and I company last night.

I listened to some Big Cypress last night and some selections from my favorite shows. It makes me real sad to realize I'll never hear those 4 guys lean into the "Black-Eyed Katy/Moma Dance" groove again after this Summer. That's the kind of thing that made Phish special, that they'll never replicate with anyone else.

It's going to be kind of hard to listen to Phish for a while. When I'm into a band, I'm forward looking - rarely do I even venture back to 1999/2000 these days when it comes to Phish - I want to hear Miami & Vegas, warts and all, because it gets me excited about what will happen next, where they will go next, how the sound will change, new material, etc.... and that's an experience that's going to end, and I'm really going to miss it.

I imagine I probably won't be listening to a lot of Phish as the tour and the year winds down. Happened to me with the Dead too (I fully realize they are different circumstances), took me a couple of years really to be able to re-appreciate their legacy and music.

Ah, who knows how I feel? I don't. :(
