phish has many lyrics that are very creative and one of a kind. and silence contagious in moments like these, is one of my favorites. stare into the lion's eyes and if you get the candy, you'll get to the surprise from ween's don't get too close to my fantasy, and many other bands that i am unable to remember now that i am writing this, have one liners that are amazing. any thoughts?

reba is one of my absolute favorite phish compositions and is easily my favorite lyrically (as much of a rush as i get from the scream into boy, man, god, shit, wudmtf, my love for those types of phish lyrics certainly deserves a different category...)

I love the lyrics of Esther. The lyrics tell a tale that only Phish could conjure and give the listener a visual in your head unlike many songs I've heard. I can definitely see where people are coming from when they match the song to some dark, black and white animation.

"And I look into her eyes and my frozen heart begins to thaw
And burns, 'til layer after layer melts away into a pool..." TELA

"I can smell the colors outside on my lawn.
the moist green organic that my feet tread upon" LAWN BOY

"A dream it's true
But I'd see it through
If I could be
Wasting my time with you" WASTE

"Swinging on the lifeline
Fraying bits of twine
Entangled in the remnants of the
Knot I left behind
And asking you to help me make it
Finally unwind" LIFEBOY

"relax the world will spin beside itself and suck you in
with threats and hopes beyond compare" FRANKIE SAYS

Sorry......I couldn't just do one liners. But there's a lot of poetic beauty in these lines....

Chorus to Chalkdust Toture has always been especially resonant with me. Still... sitting in college courses, I will mutter it under my breath when the course matter seems redundant or dumbed-down.

Alumni Blues:

...and no shoes on my head!"

Ahhhh. The absolute absurdness of Phish is unsurpassed. :D

^ ^ Off one of the greatest albums of all time, 'EXILE ON MAIN STREET".

I wish they would have covered more of these tunes live. I could totally hear them doing ROCKS OFF!

What is the faithful lasting proof?
What is the central theme
to this everlasting spoof?"
