Greyhound Rising
Trey Anastasio Lyrics


What's to be is settled
Changing lanes and sinking
What you see is moving
And you, know what to do

Shut down everything you said
Upstairs on your weekend perch, the greyhound rises
Slashing at the sky
On my knees in the summer sun and I know nothing
I know nothing

Shut down everything you said
Upstairs on your weekend perch, the greyhound rises
Slashing at the sky
On my knees in the summer sun and I know nothing

Through the jig-saw night
Traveled at the speed of sound, the greyhound rises
Everything you said
Everything you said

Falling, falling, why do all the streams and swollen rivers
Seem to call me back to you?
And I'm calling, calling, no matter how I scream,
Nothing's coming through.

So I shut down everything you said
Upstairs on your weekend perch, the greyhound rises
Slashing at the sky
On my knees in the summer sun and I know nothing
Through the jig-saw night

Traveled at the speed of sound, the greyhound rises
Everything you said
Everything you said

This is so beautiful. I have such a huge respect for Trey. I hope one day we'll be able to meet and play together.

I'm so happy this man got clean and is the prolific writer he is (has become) I love Phish and Trey and the whole scene. So glad we didn't lose this thing to the debauchery. I was at Big Cypress @nd I thought that was gonna be a wrap, but here we are 20 years later (I'm still upside down)
