Silly song written before the alpine show on phish tour


Crystal girls with shiny eyes
barefoot dance on lucy highs
eat gooey balls like gum drops
crying when the music stops

A needle volleyed ground
contrasts the mien like roman candles
the filthy balloon barrage
for the payin' boy and his Jesus sandals

(instrumental)

(chorus)
all the pretty children spinning
to the heady holy noise
and the preachers all want trance
just like the faithful girls and boys

communal transcendental heartbeat
without a normal rhythm
oh what a gorgeous melody
oh yes a gorgeous melody
(/chorus)

merry eyed merchants
embracing shiny folly
collecting church communion
finding a girl named molly

silly girls singing
peddling silly skirts
bland men swaying
buying up pretty shirts

(chorus)
all the pretty children spinning
to the heady holy noise
and the preachers all want trance
just like the faithful girls and boys

each note an electric impulse
to move our static limbs
writhing with the tribal vibrations
from where the movement stems
(/chorus)

All the kids with the holy spirit
we all got family pride
we got to get to next church
won't you give us a ride

On a psychedelic pilgrimage
full of sound and sparkly things
the tie-dye kids finance us
but they don't have their wings
