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 look at these hands.
Take a look at these hands. 
The hand speaks. 
The hand of a government man. 
Well I'm a tumbler. 
Born under punches.
I'm so thin. 

All I want is to breathe I'm too thin
Won't you breathe with me? 
Find a little space, so we can move in-between In-Between it 
And keep on step ahead, of yourself.
Don't you miss it, don't you miss it. 
Some 'a you people just about missed it!
Last time to make plans! 
Well I'm a tumbler, I'm a Government man 
Never seen anything like that before 

Falling bodies tuble 'cross the floor well I'm a tumbler! 
When you get to where you wanna be thank you! Thank you! 
When you get to where you wanna be don't even mention it! 
Take a look at these hands. 
They're passing in-between us. 

Take a look at these hands 
Take a look at these hands. You don't have to mention it. 
No thanks. I'm a Government Man. 

And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
Where the hand has been
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on 
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on

Where the hand has been
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
I'm not a drowning man!
And I'm not a burning building! (I'm a tumbler!) 
Drowning cannot hurt a man!Fire cannot hurt a man. (Not the Government Man.) 

All I want is to breathe thank you. 
Thank you won't you breathe with me? 
Find a little space
So we move in-between I'm so thin 
And keep one step ahead of yourself. 
I'm catching up with myself 
All I want it to breathe
Won't you breathe with me 
Hands of a Government man 

Find a little space so we move in-between 
And keep one step ahead of yourself. 
Don't you miss it! Don't you miss it! 

And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on

Where the hands has been
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes 
On, and the heat goes on
