Testo Colonel Forbins Ascent – Phish

Testo della canzone Colonel Forbins Ascent dei Phish
Colonel Forbin stared up at the mountain

And wiped away the beads of sweat

That glistened on his brow

His tired feet were buried in the quagmire

And his bloodshot eyes saw all that lay between him

And fulfillment of his vow

And he felt his fingers wrap around a knotted root

And pulled his body upwards

To a sea green mossy boulder

And he dragged his weary carcass [or shit-ass ] up the mountain

And he climbed so slowly

He climbed so slowly



Suddenly he heard the crack of thunder

And the rocks began to crumble overhead

And tumble down the mountain to the

Dismal swamp that lay beneath the jagged cliffs

through which his path had led

And the earth began to quake beneath his feet

And the mighty mountain changed before his eyes

And he stood amidst a sea of dust and rocks and stones

Cascading down the mountain

And a thousand birds were headed for the sky. Oh…

The sacred creed will be yours

And if you wait until tomorrow

The sacred creed will be yours

To devour


To seize

And to obey


When the dust had cleared, the colonel lifted up his head

And was driven to his knees by a blazing beam of light

And he saw the silhouette that stood before him

And he bowed in reverence

Trembling in the shadow of the mighty legend’s form

Icculus the prophet stood before his eyes

Looking down on Colonel Forbin

Where he shuddered in the puddles
