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 »

Breath and Burning 
We are made of sand 
Slowly turning 
At the waves command 

And what does it matter 
If the nightmares all came true? 
The black clouds that scattered across 
The sky so there's nothing left we can do 

Let's celebrate while the hurricane 
Throws salt and water into the room 
The canary died 
The healer lied 

The yellow fields disappeared too soon 
Mid-air voltage blooms and grows 
Unstoppable, it's instant heat 
And as sinners plea on bended knee 

We'll be dancing here for days 
Breath and Burning 
We are made of sand 
Slowly turning At the waves command 

And what does it matter 
That the end's in sight? 
We're not going gently 
We're gonna rage with Page at the dying of the light! 

The sudden unexpected fate 
Of sunken ships 
Was our future path 
Your string of beads did nothing to 

Prepare for you what was sure to pass 
Shadow wheels in shipping lanes 
The angry winds blew straight from hell 
And the tortoise pulls his head inside his shell 

Breath and Burning 
We are made of sand 
Slowly turning 
At the waves command 

And what does it matter? 
It'll be over soon 
Our heads on a platter 
So lets spin in the light of the moon 

We've still got the light of the moon 
We'll dance in the light of the moon
