Phish

Phish is an American rock band noted for its musical improvisation, extended jams, exploration of music across genres, and adoring fan base. Formed at the University of Vermont in 1983 (with the current line up solidifying in 1985), the band's four members—Trey Anastasio (guitars, lead vocals), Mike Gordon (bass, vocals), Jon Fishman (drums, percussion, vocals), and Page McConnell (keyboards, vocals)—performed together for over 20 years before breaking up in August 2004. They reunited March 2009 for Phish in Hampton, a series of three consecutive concerts played in the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia, and have since resumed performing regularly. more »

Take a piece of tinsel 
And put it on the tree
Cut a slab a melon 
And pretend that you still love me

Carve out a pumpkin 
And rely on your destiny
Get in your car 
And cruise the land of the brave

And the free
But don't forget to understand
Exactly what you put on the tree
Don't believe the florist when he tells 

You that the roses are free
Take a wrinkled raisin
And do with it what you will 
Push it into third 

If you know your gonna climb a hill
Eat plenty of lasagna
'Til you know that you had your fill
Resist all the urges 

That make you want to go out and kill
But don't forget to understand
Exactly what you put on the tree
Don't believe the florist when he tells 

You that the roses are free 
Throw that pumpkin at the tree
Unless you think that pumpkin
Holds your destiny

Cast it off into the sea
Bake that pie and eat it with me
