LYRICS

Phish “Down With Disease” Lyrics

Down with disease
Three weeks in my bed
Trying to stop these demons that keep dancing in my head
Down with disease
Up before the dawn
A thousand barefoot children outside dancing on my lawn, and I keep

Waiting for the time when I can finally say
That this has all been wonderful but now I’m on my way
But when I think it’s time to leave it all behind
I try to find a way but there’s nothing I can say to make it stop

Down with disease and the jungles in my mind
They’re climbing up my waterfalls and swingin’ on my vines
So I try to hear the music but I’m always losing time
‘Cause they’re stepping on my rhythm and they’re stealin’ all my lines
Stealin’ all my lines and I keep

Waiting for the time when I can finally say
That this has all been wonderful but now I’m on my way
But when I think it’s time to leave it all behind
I try to find a way but there’s nothing I can say to make it stop

Last week, Phish kicked off their Fall tour, and are already proving to have a few tricks up their sleeves. Above, you can watch pro-shot video of the band performing an epic “Down With Disease” from their tour opening show in South Carolina. The lengthy tune begins with a lot of energy, then settles into a spacey groove. A roar from the crowd erupts when the band segue into the Talking Heads 1979 song “Cities,” which gets a funky treatment.

The full concert audio for every concert on tour is available for purchase and download through the band at LivePhish.com.

During their performance last night in Nashville, Phish were joined by Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead for six songs.
